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.
