bolt action/semi auto

I've watched several military specials on sniper rifles and such, and they keep discussing how bolt action rifles are inherently more accurate than semi auto rifles. I guess I just don't understand why. All things remaining the same, it doesn't make sense to me why with 2 rifles the bolt action is more accurate than the semi auto. There has to be something more to it than just the action of the gun.
