O'Reilly questioned if Kennedy would show up to convention ... as Kennedy spoke behind him

After an interview with actor Ben Affleck on the July 27 O'Reilly Factor, FOX News Channel host Bill O'Reilly, who was presenting his show live from the Democratic National Convention, teased the upcoming segment of his show by saying of convention speaker Senator Edward Kennedy: “When we come back, we'll let you listen to Ted Kennedy for a while, if he shows up.”

In fact, Kennedy had already shown up and had been speaking for several minutes, as O'Reilly need only have turned around to see. FOX News even showed live footage of Kennedy's speech in one part of the screen during O'Reilly's interview with Affleck.
