'Reliable Sources:' February 22, 2015

Watch all the stories from today's show:

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly's claims about "war zone" experience are coming under intense scrutiny. Former CBS news correspondent Eric Engberg disputes several of O'Reilly's claims about his time covering the Falklands War from Argentina.

How do the charges against O'Reilly compare to the allegations levied against NBC's Brian Williams? Will the media response be the same? Brian Stelter speaks with Daily Beast columnist Jeff Greenfield and follows up with Engberg.

With Williams suspended without pay for six months, what does the future hold for the "NBC Nightly News?" "Inside Edition" host Deborah Norville joins Brian Stelter to analyze whether NBC's ratings are holding up with Lester Holt in the anchor chair.

Rudy Giuliani dominated headlines this week for his comments that he believes Obama doesn't love America. CNN commentator Van Jones & former Giuliani speechwriter David Frum explore how media responded.

    @ GL Remote, i was surprised as well @ Al Frankens vague explanation. As well as the fact that he was even a guest. Guess we just needed a comedians spin on things huh? For sure though Bill O'Reilly is a proven liar over and over again and needs to be tossed out with yesterdays garbage AND news! Can we have a NEW topic next week please?

    Wow, I just heard Al Franken explain Net Neutrality. Now it's o so clear. Nothing is going to change according to him. Then why does the government want control? Here I am thinking Obama is true to his word and trying to end run the Senate and hand the ICANN to the ITU. Since his previous plan didn't work, his influence at the FCC must have been just a hobby according to Al. Oh wait am I being censored.

    I just heard Fox news called niche media on this show. This on a network with 1/4 the viewership.

    @ John Earnest, im with you...what is going on with that missing plane? Out of sight out of mind obviously! Im thinkin its one more thing ISIS or rather DAESH has acquired! But what about all of those passengers? Apparantly just collateral damage that no one wishes to speak of.

    Steltzer, Is CNN doing a little self righteous promoting here? Just like the missing plane story, you've belabored the Brian Williams scandal to the point which makes the network look very desperate. Come on, be a journalist again. Ask hard questions not only when they put down another network, but all the time. BTW, a few months back, you let get Glenn Beck get away with some obvious statements that were untrue.

    Simply, because it was one big political lie that Brian perpetrated. The original video is now available on CBS

    Hackney, toady, water carrying dribble, from somebody who should know better and most likely does. Shame has no meaning to CNN or MsNBC, nor does the truth. Tit for Tat, suckle on It, maybe it will come true.

    Brian, great show on Sunday. Greenfield was a good interview too but Engberg was a real scoop. Well done and I will be watching.

      Yeah, right. "Room service" Eric turned out to be a liar, who probably was inside the hotel all that time, then stole Bill's video to put his voice over it, but forgot all about it. Go to the source (CBS) to watch the video.

      Bill O'Riely is a fraud, why waste your emotion over protecting him. He is a big boy. Let people harp on him and his faudedness.

    And Rudy Giuliani, do you have no shame at all? America has been failing miserably for quite some time....what is there forp any of us to be proud of at the moment? Seriously? Doesnt mean we dont love our country but damn, its time to step up to the plate and admit we have made some whoppin big mistakes over the past several years! Aint much for any of us to brag about for cryin out loud! Grow up old man...Obama won his two elections and cannot run again, so stop whining about it! Sheesh!
