Congressman Eric Massa Condemns Fox News

MPNnow.comCongressman Eric Massa today demanded Fox News immediately fire Bill O'Reilly and Lt. Col Ralph Peters for what Massa said were “deeply offensive and unpatriotic statements” made about prisoner of war Bowe Bergdahl.

In a Monday interview on Fox News, Peters said Bergdahl appeared to be a deserter and refused to apologize for his remarks in a Tuesday interview on Fox's O'Reily Factor hosted by Bill O'Reilly.

Massa, along with 22 other Congressional veterans, sent a letter to Fox News Chief Executive Roger Ailes on Tuesday demanding he issue an apology to the family of Bergdahl.

“Words cannot express how furious I am at Fox News, Lt. Col Ralph Peters and Bill O'Reilly for suggesting that we should leave a prisoner of war behind and allow him to be executed by the Taliban to save us the trouble of trying to intervene,” Massa said.
