Only a “certain type of media” was allowed in. What could they possibly have to hide, right?
This week, O’Reilly Factor correspondent Jesse Watters traveled to Garland, Texas, in an attempt to attend the ‘Defend the Prophet’ conference.

Watters and his team were not allowed in.
“They revoked my ticket as I landed in Dallas,” Watters later told host Bill O’Reilly.
Outside the convention center, Watters spoke with an organizer about his rescinded press credential.
