No spin zone Fox bloviator Bill O'Reilly has some vintage videotape floating around from his Inside Edition days, posted on Fark.com.
Apparently his legendary Irish temper is real as he rips the segment producers who wrote an objectionable exit script for O'Reilly to announce Sting's latest single.
The verbiage threw O'Reilly into a tizzy.
O'Reilly, at age 21, went to Miami and taught high school English, then returned to Boston and earned an M.A. in Broadcast Journalism from Boston University in 1976. During this time O'Reilly cut his teeth with entertainment reporting for various Boston and Miami news outlets.
O'Reilly's early television news career had him bouncing between Dallas, Hartford CT and Boston, Massachusetts.
O'Reilly became part of ABC News as a correspondent for "ABC World News Tonight" in 1986.
In 1989, O'Reilly joined the nationally syndicated program "Inside Edition."
In 1995, O'Reilly was hired by Roger Ailes, chairman and CEO of the then startup FOX News Channel, to anchor The O'Reilly Report. The show soon moved to a new time slot, and was renamed The O'Reilly Factor.
In this "Inside Edition" clip, Bill goes through several takes, and finally loses his mind and explodes and screams, "F**K IT! Do it live! I'll write it and we'll do it live! F**king thing sucks!"
