BILL O'REILLY (HOST): There is a lot of people of color work in the industry so maybe you branch that out. I want to raise this specter. I've had two movies nominated for best TV film for the Emmys. Killing Jesus and Killing Kennedy. Alright? Now we knew we were going to lose. We knew. Because of me. Now if the executive producer would have been Bill Maher, those movies I think would have won. But I'm not boycotting. That's not the kind of guy I am. But, there are politics to be played. But it would be hard it believe they were just trying to exclude black films.
