Former White House press secretary Scott McClellan has changed his story and admits that FOX News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly never received talking points from the White House.

On Friday, McClellan said on MSNBC that FOX News commentators would receive White House talking points, adding, “It was something we at the White House… were doing in getting them talking points and making sure they knew where we were coming from.”

He then agreed with anchor Chris Matthews who asked, “Did people say, call Sean [Hannity], call Bill [O’Reilly], call whoever?”

But O’Reilly addressed the allegations Monday night, saying that McClellan was not telling the truth. And on O’Reilly’s radio program Tuesday, McClellan said, “I messed up. I was specifically not trying to single anyone out, including you. There were people, not you, but there were people,” who McClellan says received talking points.

That’s Britt Hume, of course.

So, why would McClellan even make such a statement? Because it’s to his financial advantage. It plays directly into the leftist mantra about Fox, and it makes Bush look like he was manipulating the media. the idea of course is as a counter to the well-understood and long proved leftist bias in the press.  Of course that Fox is biased to the right has all been proven a lie, but notice, please how few others actually take notice of said proof when there’s a mantra to pursue. Or, books to sell.
