O’Reilly Apologizes For “Lynching” Comment

Bill O’Reilly has drawn criticism for his usage of the term “lynching party” when defending Michelle Obama on The Radio Factor on Tuesday. Tonight on The O’Reilly Factor, he explained and apologized for those comments: “While talking to a radio caller, I said there should be no lynching in the case. That comment off Clarence Thomas saying he was a victim of a high tech lynching. He said that on 60 Minutes you may remember. I’m sorry if that statement offended anyone. That was not my intention. Context is everything.”
