O'Reilly: 'Two-Faced' Axelrod Sells Books on, Then Trashes, Fox News

By    |   Monday, 09 Mar 2015 09:31 PM

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly called Democratic political adviser David Axelrod "two-faced" for using O'Reilly's show to sell his new book, then insulting Fox News Channel soon afterward.

In O'Reilly's opening segment on Monday's "O'Reilly Factor,"  he took on politicians, pundits and left-of-center media who trash Fox News. He said the motivation is simple: Fox News is a threat because it has become the top-rated source of cable news and sets the political agenda.

Knowing that Fox will bring in the most viewers, Axelrod, who has worked for Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, asked O'Reilly to give him the first cable interview about his new book, "Believer: My Forty Years in Politics," O'Reilly said.

"I told him, sure. We would have a lively, respectful discussion, which we did on February 9th," O'Reilly said. "Then, to show his gratitude, Axelrod begins trashing Fox News, saying we are not a real news organization.  That was a mistake."

O'Reilly said that "being two-faced" is "not a legacy builder."

Giving Axelrod the benefit of making a verbal mistake, O'Reilly said Fox News is ready to accept his apology.

"The fact is that Fox News is now a deep threat to the progressive movement, and the far left despises us," O'Reilly said. "So they are in full attack mode, desperately trying to marginalize FNC."
