The Huffington Post gives us the dear dirty details:

“Killing Lincoln”, which he co-authored with Martin Dugard, is riddled with factual inaccuracies. The National Parks Service outed the mistakes in a recent review before banning it from the Ford’s Theatre bookstore.
In one instance, the book claims Ford’s Theatre was burned down in 1863 when it was actually destroyed in the end of 1862. The book contains multiple references to Lincoln in the Oval Office, which wasn’t built until decades after his death. It also includes the line “He furls his brow”; furl is a nautical term, the correct word is furrows.
Despite being second on the New York Times’ bestseller list, “Killing Lincoln” has taken heat from a slew of critics. Christian Science Monitor’s Jackie Hogan chastises the book for covering up negative aspects of Lincoln’s presidency in favor of a good story. As she puts it, “style and image often take precedence over evidence and substance.” She also calls the book “sensationalized, suggestive, and overly simplistic.”

Banned from Ford’s Theatre bookstore! How could the National Parks Service do that to Bill O’Reilly? This is a travesty. Don’t they know O’Reilly is the most powerful man in the world, other than the president and Charles Manson?

I’m sure he’ll figure out a way to get back at these factophile pinheads who called out the inaccuracies in “Killing Lincoln”. Those officious pricks!
