O’Reilly warns Current TV hosts: Al Jazeera will ‘behead you’ if you misbehave
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on Wednesday warned the hosts of Current TV that they were risking decapitation if they decided to stay on after Al Jazeera takes over the network.
O’Reilly took multiple jabs stereotyping Muslims as he pointed out that several Current TV personalities are reportedly leaving the network ahead of the takeover in April and other employees had allegedly expressed disappointment to media outlets like the New York Post.
“There are reports that Current TV people don’t like this because they’re going to get fired and [Al] Gore makes all these millions of dollars,” he explained. “Joe Behar, they’re going to slap a burka on her. She’s not going to like that at all.”
Fox News correspondent Juliet Huddy explained to O’Reilly that many Current TV employees felt more comfortable with Al Jazeera taking over then network than CBS because they were more likely to keep their jobs.
“The problem is that CBS, if you misbehave, they might suspend you for a day,” O’Reilly insisted. “At Al Jazeera, they behead you.”
