'Reliable Sources:' March 1, 2015

Watch all the stories from Sunday's show:

Almost every day this week, there was a new challenge to Bill O'Reilly's past reporting. Now CNN has obtained an audio tape that contradicts what O'Reilly has said about covering the suicide of a figure in the investigation of the JFK assassination. JFKFacts.org editor Jefferson Morley, who first published the tape, explains its significance.

O'Reilly has criticized and even threatened some of the reporters who are covering the controversy. At the 8-minute mark in this video, Amanda Terkel describes what it was like to be "ambushed" by producers for O'Reilly's show.

Is O'Reilly a journalist, an entertainer or something else? Media critic and NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen says the best title might be "performance artist," and that Fox News is best understood as "resentment news" for a niche audience.

"The Dress" that lit up the Internet on Thursday night actually revealed something about the future of media. BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith shares some of the lessons learned.

Speaking of the Internet... the FCC is enacting new rules that seek to ensure so-called "net neutrality," but Senator Al Franken says the fight is not over. He responds to objections from Comcast and other big broadband providers.

And speaking of Comcast... it, Time Warner Cable and Al Sharpton are all defendants in a racial discrimination case brought forth by Byron Allen, the CEO of Entertainment Studios. Here's how Allen describes his case and what he's hoping to accomplish through the lawsuit.

Netflix's "House of Cards" is not just a television show, it's a pop culture phenomenon. With binges of the third season now underway, series creator Beau Willimon talks about how everyone has a little bit of Frank Underwood inside them.

    I just got done watching today's @reliablesouces show. Brian Stelter is such a hypocrite. You constantly referred to Donald Trumps "lies". Not once did you mention any of Clinton's lies,under oath, to the FBI and Congress committees. How about Bengasi, classified e-mails, Clinton Foundation and travelgate etc. etc.??? You are pathetic.

    Enjoy your show. Didn't think Howard Kurtz could be replaced but you are doing a good job. Keep it up. I assume last Sunday's show was taped so I can only hope the Duggar story isn't too cold to cover when you return to work. It seems to me this story has a valid media angle when you consider how much the media has covered the story of the $60 million plane requested by the African-American minister and how little has been said by the networks about Duggar and his links to various Republican Presidential candidates. It raises the issue of just what stories merit network attention and which stories will be relegated to the crazed world of on-line reporting. Thanks for the hard work.

    You really have a huge vendetta against Bill O'Reilly Brian!!! What kind of reporter (& I use the word loosely) goes after expose stories like this?? It's petty to say the least!!! It is certainly not life shattering or the world will fall apart if you don't expose that O'Reilly wasn't there when the man shot himself...I do not appreciate being lied to, but in this case it is not horrible like the Brian Williams lies...you've got to admit that Brian!!!
    It's a shame that you went to college and studied all those hours to bring yourself to being like a little kid in the school yard trying to get the bully in trouble....I can see you now as a little boy...you are a small man Brian, in many ways. Sorry that I'm attacking you in this way, but you deserve it. Go find REAL news to report....maybe you don't have enough courage to go and do that...The Bill O'Reilly story is now old and it's pathetic that you are still going after him with ANYTHING you can find. I feel sorry for you in a sense.....

    Please continue with the Bill O'reilly/JFK story. You should interview his former colleagues at WFAA, including Doug Fox – he may know something about this story.
