O'Reilly dropped as fundraising speaker

The National Center for Missing Children has uninvited Bill O'Reilly to speak at a fundraising event after the Fox News host blamed a teenage boy for his abduction.

During Bill O'Reilly's show on January 15th, he hinted that Shawn Hornbeck might not have escaped his captor because he enjoyed his new situation.

Desite the uproar from across the country, the National Center for Missing Children initially tried to defend their decision to have O'Reilly give the keynote address at a March 9th fundraising gala at the Ritz-Carlton in Naples, Florida.

Yesterday, the Collier County Florida Branch issued this statement cancelling O'Reilly's participation.
