Fireworks were flying.
Greta Van Susteren got into a heated argument with Freddie Gray family attorney Billy Murphy after he accused Fox News network of being racist.
Murphy joined Van Susteren on her show “On the Record” Monday to discuss a judge’s ruling that found Baltimore officer Edward Nero not guilty on all charges in the death of Freddie Gray.
After a strong back and forth, Vans Susteren asked Murphy to “speculate” on whether or not he would have indicted the officer if he were the judge.
Not happy with that question, Murphy let loose on the news network as a whole.
“Your station was rife with speculation about whether Judge Williams was playing to the audience…”
Van Susteren immediately interjected, “Stop that, I don’t know where you get that.” Van Susteren told Murphy if he had a problem with her, or her show, to let her know.
Defensive of her employer, she told Murphy to leave Fox out of it because his statement had no weight. But he was just getting started.
“So,” Murphy said, “if I think the whole network’s approach to the black community is racist and that’s a relevant thing to say during this program, I can’t say it?”
Van Susteren said she knew the game he was trying to play and wasn’t about to take the bait. “[Fox News] were in court every single day, Billy,” she said. “If you have a problem with my show, tell me.”
The awkward interview ended with Murphy saying he had no specific problem with Van Susteren’s show, but never retracted his statement about the entire network.
