Following the freak show segment on The O’Reilly Factor on Fox “News,” where host Bill O’Reilly refused to accept Alan Colmes’s answer on naming two programs the President is willing to cut, O’Reilly’s next segment featured his guest John Stossel, who had a few choice words for the host – “You were obnoxious!”
Stossell was referring to the over the top reaction Bill O’Reilly had when he asked Alan Colmes to “name one program” President Obama would cut. Colmes named two and O’Reilly engaged in an explosive personal attack that at one point, had the much calmer Colmes trying to demand some respect.
After introducing Stossell for the next segment, O’Reilly admitted that he was “still feeling bad about Colmes.” To that, Stossell replied, “Good. You were out of line!”
O’Reilly, still unable to see the err of his ways replied, “I wasn’t out of line. I was maybe out of line with my tone, but not with the facts of the matter.”
“You were obnoxious,” Stossell would say. Some laughing could be heard off camera. O’Reilly eventually accepted the fact that he was “over the top!”
