Bill O’Reilly has no interest in rehashing past unpleasantries -- at least not with ESPN's Dan Le Batard.
During an interview Monday to promote O'Reilly's new book, Killing Patton, Le Batard started the Fox News anchor off with a few softball questions. They covered O'Reilly's days as a pitcher, growing up with Billy Joel on Long Island (really), what kind of music gets him to dance (Fleetwood Mac, if you were wondering). But when Le Batard asked O'Reilly what moments in his career bring him "shame" or cause him "unrest," O’Reilly had a minor meltdown.
“I’m not going to get into any of that stuff," he said. "So if you guys have another question, I'm good. If not, I'll say goodbye."
Though O’Reilly had apparently already hung up, Le Batard insisted on getting his thoughts on one last topic, proceeding to roll audio of O'Reilly's infamous "We'll do it live!" tantrum from a taping of "Inside Edition."
“There’s no way he’s still there, right? He’s gone? He left?” Le Batard said. “Oh, I wanted his reaction to that so bad.”
A poll was later tweeted out from the "Dan Le Batard Show" Twitter account asking who was wrong, O'Reilly or Le Batard:
