On Monday, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly gave a half-hearted apology for incorrectly predicting that the U.S. Supreme Court would find President Barack Obama’s health care reform to be unconstitutional (video below).
During a March 26 interview with American Constitution Society President Caroline Fredrickson, O’Reilly ended the interview by promising to “apologize for being an idiot” if the court upheld the law.
O’Reilly said on Monday: “I’m not really sorry, but I am a man of my word, so I apologize for not factoring in the John Roberts situation.”
“Truthfully, I never in a million years would thought the chief justice would go beyond the scope of the commerce clause to date and into taxation. I may be an idiot for not considering that.”
