I really hate to break it to Bill O'Reilly, but the more of his over the top, racist rant you watch from a couple of weeks ago -- where he came back early from vacation so he could rant and rave about the media coverage in Ferguson and go after a couple of his favorite targets, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for daring to show up there -- the worse he looks.
That didn't stop him from going after Jon Stewart for mocking him last week on this Wednesday evening's The O'Reilly Factor. He started right out of the gate by taking a swipe at "his pal" Jon Stewart.
O'REILLY: And finally tonight, The Factor tip of the day, my pal Jon Stewart, basically a comedian, but he's taken seriously by some of his fanatical followers, speaking about the Michael Brown killing in Ferguson, MO, Stewart mocked me for coming back from vacation.
After showing a tiny portion of Stewart's segment from last week which only featured O'Reilly and not his criticisms of Fox in general and the fact that he went after at least a half dozen or more of the talking heads on his network, Bill-O continued his rant against Stewart and accused him of taking him out of context. From Fox's blog: WATCH: O’Reilly Takes on Jon Stewart Over Ferguson Rant:
Tonight on “The Factor,” Bill O’Reilly responded to Jon Stewart’s rant on O’Reilly’s coverage of the shooting death of Michael Brown.
“Stewart distorts the issue, and he has been known to do that,” O’Reilly said.
As for the Factor Tip of the Day, O’Reilly said, “When you hear something on a partisan-driven program, don’t believe it [...] Distortions are how some people make a living,” he said, saying Stewart is just going for the laugh.
