MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell and FNC’s Bill O’Reilly to Interview Bob Costas

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell speaks with NBC’s Bob Costas tonight for Costas’ first television interview since his comments on gun control Sunday night following the murder-suicide committed by Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher. Tomorrow, Costas heads across Sixth Avenue for a sit-down with Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly.

Costas went on Dan Patrick‘s radio show earlier today, telling Patrick: “My mistake is I left it open for too much miscommunication.”

What I was trying to say was, that if you want some perspective on this, there are a number of issues related to this that we could begin to talk about and think about. The problem was that I didn’t have enough time to get to many of them. And that, I think, was my mistake, to be quite honest, Dan. A friend of mine in broadcasting pointed this out to me yesterday, and I agree with him. He said, ‘you violated your own rule.’

Costas’ comments have been front and center on cable news over the last 24 hours, including on Sean Hannity‘s show, as we pointed out earlier and on “The O’Reilly Factor” as O’Reilly discussed the matter with Bernie Goldberg.
