Bill Cunningham Outburst On 'Hannity' Stirs Fox News Controversy

Conservative radio host Bill Cunningham appeared on Sean Hannity's Fox News show Thursday night and had quite the outburst.

Cunningham was arguing with Fox News contributor Tamara Holder over Attorney General Eric Holder when he pointed his finger, shouted in her face and called her a "liberal stooge." Holder responded by pointing her finger in Cunningham's face and telling the radio host to "shut up."

"You shut up!" Cunningham yelled. "Know your role and shut your mouth."

"My role is a woman," Holder responded.

Hannity carried on with the segment but Cunningham's outburst attracted attention on Friday, even from Fox News' own daytime programming. During Friday's "America's Newsroom," host Martha MacCallum anchored a segment focusing on whether Cunningham's behavior "crossed the line." Fox News contributor Juan Williams argued that Cunningham "not only crossed the line, but obliterated the line."
