O’Reilly Factor host Bill O’Reilly engaged in a heated battle with South Carolina Democratic Representative Todd Rutherford on Thursday evening over Ruthford’s dubious claims that he made hours earlier about how the alleged gunman in the deadly Charleston church shooting had sought guidance from “things like Fox News” as it supposedly offers “hate speech.”

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