Bill O'Reilly Destroys Umbrella Fending Off Camera Ambush: VIDEO


FOX News host Bill O'Reilly, known for camera ambushes of his own, was confronted by Wisconsin community organizer Branden Lane after walking out of a hotel where Newt Gingrich was holding a fundraiser last night, Ring Wing Watch reports:

O’Reilly ignores him and then, with no prompting, strikes Lane with his umbrella. He then says, “Hey, sorry about that.” O’Reilly, with Lane following at a distance, then walks with his now-broken umbrella over to a Capitol police officer. Incredibly, you can hear O’Reilly say that he wants to press charges against the man he just struck.

O'Reilly was reportedly staying at the hotel.

  1. LOL he loves to send his camera men to ambush folks, guess he doesn't like it when the shoe is on the other foot. He gonna play victim when he repeats the story.

  2. Are we quite sure he's not a member of the "entitlement generation"?

  5. This man is so full of himself that after he assaults someone HE believes he is entitled to press charges against his victim! This the the Saddam Hussain, General Pinochet, Shah of Iran type of mentality. . . When they torture others, it's how the world was meant to be! I'm sure O'Reilly realized from his handlers' training that he was on camera assaulting someone and that he had better come up with a good story.

  7. what does Bill O'Reilly, a Catholic, feel about the Catholic Church telling 8 year olds that they are so full of SIN that they need to "confess" to purge their souls in order to receive communion?

    that's a Catholic thing. first communion. at age 8 EIGHT.

    the same age as the boy in the video. EIGHT. 8. 8. 8. 8.

    so, you can tell an 8 year old that he's a vessel of Sin and he needs to confess or he risks his soul but you can't have an 8 year old aware of the people in his country who are promoting hatred against his family?

    Explain, Mr. O'Reilly.

  8. Please press battery charges.You have the evidence.If anything it will put O'Reilly on notice...What if the umbrella poked your eye out?

  9. I quite enjoyed that his combover got exposed. Probably doesn't help the cameraman much, but it's a start.

  10. O'Reilly is a cowardly thug. Someone ought to press charges against this creep. He's as creepy as his employer Rupert Murdoch.

  11. Bill O'Reilly clearly carries a lot of anger. We should feel compassion for him, but it's difficult not to feel contempt. I think it's probably linked to his catholic childhood - some sort of abuse or bullying.

  12. So he wants to talk to the police after that? He will get an assult charge out of it, as well he should. Brave and stupid man with it all being on camera.
    What a jerk.

  13. Poor Billy can't take a dose of his medicine. But like good right wingers you will notice he immediately plays the victim card. They don't care what they say just don't question them.

  14. Typical Republican.

  15. Bill O'Reilly: Professional liar.

  16. Bill O'Reilly was right to inquire into criminal charges.
    The fellow was obviously guilty of resisting assault.

  17. Bill O'Reilly loves to dish it out, but caught off guard, he can't take, the mark of a hypocrite and coward, go run and hide worst person in the world.
