Bill O'Reilly has been battering Rosie O'Donnell all week while she's been on vacation and unable to respond. Tonight during the Policing The Press segment with Jane Hall and Bernie Goldberg, he complained that the " far left" is defending O'Donnell in preperation for her return to The View on Tuesday. O'Reilly claimed that Neal Gabler's assertion, on The Fox Report, that he had " slimed" O'Donnell was absurd. So when Jane Hall stood up for Gabler, O'Reilly's ugly rage started to build. With Video
Hall, also a panel member with Gabler, said she agreed quite often with Gabler although this time she thought it was valid to question if O'Donnell had stepped over the line. O'Reilly was annoyed that Hall wouldn't condemn Gabler and called her a " left winger". When Hall denied being a left winger, BOR mocked her denial saying, " You're tinkerbell."
Goldberg stepped in to fan the flames with one of his rambling analogies to promote the liberal media bias theory and attack O'Donnell. Then he pushed O'Reilly's rage button telling him,
" Neil Gabler dislikes you and Fox News."
Hall then tried to speak her mind but O'Reilly didn't like what she said.
" Bill has done five segments on Rosie O'Donnell this week alone!"
Bill quickly interrupted Hall with, "I have a finite amount of time!" Then while trying to change the subject, he started to lose his ability to make rational statements and finally raged at Hall,
"Bernie's right! I'm right! You're wrong! "
His balance was lost at this point and he continued to rave about cabals and news blackouts making himself the victim instead of Rosie O'Donnell.
