‘False. Not true!’ O’Reilly blasts former colleague Bob Beckel for saying Megyn Kelly got the best of him

If the bridge between Bob Beckel and Fox News wasn’t burned before, consider it incinerated now.

Fox News’ flagship personality Bill O’Reilly tore into his former colleague Thursday night just before the Republican presidential debate.

He was responding to Beckel, who was hired by rival network CNN, where he claimed ‘Reilly feared Megyn Kelly because she was beating him in the ratings.

“O’Reilly is scared to death of Megyn Kelly because Megyn Kelly has been beating him in ratings,” he said Wednesday on CNN. “The first time that’s happened since Fox News Channel has been on the air.”

That enraged O’Reilly, who then let loose on his former colleague.

“Of course that is absolutely false. False, not true. And that’s why Beckel doesn’t work here at Fox anymore. He could not care less about facts,” O’Reilly said.
