Bill O’Reilly began his show Monday lamenting the rise of “ignorant America” calling it a “disaster’ while blaming public schools and the Internet.
Citing a 2011 study that found that 29 percent of Americans could not name the vice-president, 43 percent could not define the Bill of Rights, and 40 percent did not know that America fought Germany and Japan in WWII, O’Reilly called America’s lack of knowledge a “disaster.”
