O’Reilly Airs Some of Jackson’s Hot Mic Comments

jackson_7-9.jpgAs reported earlier today, Bill O’Reilly aired some of what Rev. Jesse Jackson apologized for earlier this afternoon when he was talking to fellow guest Reid Tuckson before an interview with Fox & Friends on Sunday.

O’Reilly also made this point — Fox News decided against showing all of the statements.

I want to tell the audience, and I want to tell you, that we held back some of this conversation, and we did that because we didn’t feel it had any relevance to the conversation this evening. We are not out to get Jesse Jackson. We are not out to embarrass him and we are not out to make him look bad. If we were, we would have used what we had, which is more damaging than what you have heard. What we are trying to get at here, is that there are some people who believe that the victimization here goes to hell if Barack Obama is elected president. The accusation that we live in a racial society, unfair to blacks, all blows up if you get Obama into the White House.
