Conservative columnist George Will didn't save all his vitriol for Fox News host Bill O'Reilly for his guest appearance on "The O'Reilly Factor" Friday. He previewed it earlier on Fox News Channel's "Special Report" where he declared O'Reilly his "Loser of the Week."

Will, who is a Fox News contributor, first taped the heated showdown for O'Reilly's program, then appeared live on "Special Report" as a panelist.

Friday's panelists are typically asked at the end of the show to pick a winner and loser for the week.

Will picked Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas as his winner for being picked Ways and Means Committee chairman.

"The 'Loser of the Week' is Bill O'Reilly of Fox News, whose book called 'Killing Reagan' is being eviscerated by real historians and by almost everyone who worked and knew Ronald Reagan," Will said. "Viewers might want to see his response to my criticism on a segment we taped for his show tonight that is so unhinged as to be highly amusing."

Host Bret Baier erupted in laughter, saying "So that goes to prove how much autonomy is given to panelists on the winners and losers."

The Will-O'Reilly feud began with a column written by Will in which he questioned the claim of O'Reilly's book that the 1981 assassination attempt caused Reagan problems that began a decline in his mental health.

O'Reilly responded, calling Will a "hack" and challenging him to come on his show. Will did just that on Friday, where O'Reilly accused him of breaking a promise to someone at Fox New to give him a heads up on the column.

Will said the "promise" was a misunderstanding.
