<p><em>O&rsquo;Reilly Factor </em>host Bill O&rsquo;Reilly engaged in a heated battle with South Carolina Democratic Representative Todd Rutherford on Thursday evening over Ruthford&rsquo;s dubious claims that he made hours earlier about how the alleged gunman in the deadly Charleston church shooting had sought guidance from <strong>&ldquo;things like Fox News&rdquo;</strong> as it supposedly offers <strong>&ldquo;hate speech.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>The roughly three-minute exchange revolved mainly around Rutherford&rsquo;s belief that alleged shooter Dylann Roof was a viewer of the Fox News Channel (FNC) where it <strong>&ldquo;continues to cover stories as to whether the President is truly the President</strong>&rdquo; and inferred that it enabled him to claim during the massacre that<strong> &ldquo;black people are raping white women.&rdquo;</strong></p>
