Bill O'Reilly: Al Sharpton 'Flat-Out Deceiver' (VIDEO)

Bill O'Reilly continued his war of words with Al Sharpton on Tuesday night, calling him "a flat-out deceiver" over his coverage of Nelson Mandela.

O'Reilly took issue with Sharpton playing a clip of the Fox News host last week calling Mandela "a communist." O'Reilly accused Sharpton of cutting the rest of his comments where he praised Mandela as "a great man," and said the segment was further proof that Sharpton "is a dishonest purveyor of information, a man who could not care less about reporting what's true."

"The thing is Sharpton uses the occasion of Nelson Mandela's death to dishonestly attack people he doesn't like," O'Reilly said during Tuesday's "Talking Points Memo." "They don't come lower."

O'Reilly's comments were the latest blows in the brewing feud between the two cable news hosts. Their on-air wrangling escalated earlier this year when they attacked each other over remarks that O'Reilly made about race relations and work done by Sharpton's charity in Harlem.
