From the July 27 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor:
ERIC BOLLING: These left wing zealots don't realize you write books about history. And I think you did, you cited history.
BILL O'REILLY (HOST): No, they realize it, They realize it.
BOLLING: OK, but here is the --
O'REILLY: This is designed though -- this is designed, Geraldo, and you know this better than anybody, this is a designed attack, came out of Media Matters, spread to Mother Jones and the other smear publications, and then into the Daily News and USA Today, designed to diminish me and to harm the Fox News channel. That's what it is designed to do.
BILL O'REILLY: I think the time has come now, where this whole network is going to have to band together, all of us, and we are going to have to call out the people who are actively trying to destroy this network, by using lies and deception and propaganda. We're going to have to start to call them out by name, because that's how bad it's become.
O'REILLY: You saw -- you saw the provocations, and that's what I reported on, the racial provocations. And then we see black men killing cops. Now, cause and effect? You can't do it 100 percent, but certainly you can discuss cause and effect. I'm afraid it's going to happen with Fox News. Geraldo gets water dumped on him, what if somebody hit him in the head with a club?
Our reporters can't go out on the floor? Jesse Watters goes on the floor of the Democratic Convention, and some photographer comes up and starts swearing at him and cursing at him right in his face? This is provocation. These people are doing this. They want me dead, Bolling, literally dead.
