Bill O’Reilly has a new book out on the Lincoln Assassination, but you won’t find it in the gift shop at Ford’s Theatre. Why is that? Well, Ford’s Theatre’s deputy superintendent says it’s not nearly accurate enough.

The work has been widely criticized by a number of expert reviewers for a slew of apparent factual inaccuracies, the most damning of which are detailed at length in a new report by Rae Emerson, the deputy superintendent of Ford’s Theatre National Historical Site. In the report, Emerson concludes that the book is plagued by a “lack of documentation” and a number of “factual errors.”

Oops. Best to get that second printing fixed, Bill.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
