Bill O’Reilly’s Talking Points –  Covering the Presidential Race …
People are coming up me askin me who I think will win the Republican nomination. There is incredible interest in this election process.  Everybody’s talking about it. I don’t know who’s going to win, I don’t support any candidate publicly and I don’t root for anyone.
I cannot possibly cover the election in a fair way if I’m rooting for somebody. It’s my job to ask the toughest questions I can to all the candidates.

It’s also my mandate to tell you the truth about each person who wants power over you…..  Video  Fox News
