Fugitive South Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger, wanted for 19 murders, was captured last night in Southern California, the result of a tip from FBI television spots that began airing this week. His capture ended a 16-year manhunt that spanned the globe.While also skeptical, Howie Carr, appearing on O'Reilly Tuesday, at least didn't make a complete buffoon of himself.
“Yeah. I don’t quite understand it, bill,” Carr replied. “They haven’t seen either Whitey or Catherine Grieg in the United States since 1996. they haven’t been seen anywhere in the world credibly since 2002. I don’t know why they are running all these spots on American TV because I don’t think they have been here for a long time.”
Top its credit, Fox News was the first cable news channel to report Bulger’s arrest in a special report a little after 12:30 AM last night, according to TVEyes. Both CNN and MSNBC waited until their morning programming kicked in to report the news.
