Sparks flew on Fox News Tuesday evening, as “The O'Reilly Factor” host Bill O'Reilly repeatedly shut down liberal radio commentator Alan Colmes‘ characterization of the sequester debate, accusing the guest several times of outright lying.
“That’s not true,” Mr. Colmes said, as reported by Politico.
“Hold it, hold it, because now I’m getting teed off at you,” Mr. O'Reilly said. “Give me one damn program he said he’d cut. One?”
“What do you want to yell for?” Mr. Colmes asked.
“Because you are lying. You are lying,” Mr. O'Reilly said.
“I am,” Mr. O'Reilly said.
