If by “strange,” you mean “predictable,” then yes. After all, this is Media Matters we’re dealing with.

Earlier, a tweet went out from an account purporting to belong to Bill O’Reilly:

One of the “L’s” in that handle is actually an “I”: @oreilIyfactor.

Well, anyway, many tweeters initially fell for it. Media Matters was among them. And when they were busted for it, they decided to clear things up — in the only way they know how: dishonestly.


Media Matters. Accuracy? Truth? Not so much.

Not fast enough!


Hurry, MMFA. Your tweet’s not gonna backpedal itself!

And Media Matters is doing their part to make sure that fake info keeps spreading.

We’re sure they’ll be much more careful next time.
