Bill O'Reilly is proud to report that The Factor remains the most watched of all cable news shows, just as it
has for more than 14 years. Every night more than 5-million viewers tune in to The Factor. It's a
remarkable fact, and that support and loyalty also account, in no small measure, for the success of Bill's
many other projects.
After five best-selling books and a memoir, Bill has recently been writing about history. Killing Lincoln was
first, followed by Killing Kennedy, and then in 2013, Killing Jesus. They all soared to the top of the New
York Times best seller lists. And The History Channel movie version of the Lincoln Book was such a big hit
that the same was done for Killing Kennedy.
Now comes the latest in this series: Killing Patton, a chronicle of what Bill calls "the strange death of
WWII"s most audacious general." It hit the top of the aforementioned best seller lists in its first week in the marketplace. Here's the description, "General George S. Patton, Jr. died under
mysterious circumstances in the months following the end of World War II. For almost seventy years, there
has been suspicion that his death was not an accident-and may very well have been an act of
assassination. Killing Patton takes readers inside the final year of the war and recounts the events
surrounding Patton's tragic demise, naming names of the many powerful individuals who wanted him
We also can't forget that somehow, in the midst of all his activities, Bill is a highly sought after guest on
the top television talk shows, and that he and Dennis Miller continue their highly popular personal appearance
tours across the country.
Background about Bill: he grew up on Long Island, got a BA from Marist College (in history, naturally), a
Master's Degree in Broadcast Journalism from Boston University, and a second MA in Public Administration
from The Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.
Bill's love of history led him to teach it in high school before going into broadcasting, and he's been a long
time collector of important historical documents.
Bill believes life offers no shortcuts, no compromises, no letup. And as he always acknowledges, nothing
happens without "the folks" -- that would be you.
