O'Reilly quipped: If trust were the main factor in every deal between Republicans and the White House, nothing would get done, Mediaite reported.
He then commented: "I don't trust the press. I think I trust Iran more than I trust the American press. I don't want the American press interpreting this for me. I want to see it in the committee hearings on television. I want to see the debate."
