Rachel Maddow Takes Down Bill O'Reilly and Fox News (Video)

Bill O'Reilly wasn't a happy man after Rachel Maddow blasted Fox News for their role in the Shirley Sherrod controversy last week.

"Which is why we kick your network's butt every single night, madam," said O'Reilly. "And you have to be kidding me with this 'fake ACORN scandal' stuff? Unbelievable. Do you live in this country?"

Maddow responded to O'Reilly but this time she not only accused the network of manipulative reporting but inciting racism.

"Because when you got all 'kicked your network's butt' and 'madam' on me, you really weren't trying to tout your network's ratings," she said.

"You were trying to take the attention off me saying that your network, Fox News, continually crusades on flagrantly bogus stories designed to make white Americans fear black Americans -- which Fox News most certainly does for a political purpose, even if it upends the lives of individuals like Shirley Sherrod, even as it frays the fabric of the nation, and even as it makes the American dream more of a dream and less of a promise."

"You can insult us all you want about television ratings, Mr. O'Reilly, and you'll be right that yours are bigger -- for now and maybe forever. You are the undisputed champion. But even if no one watches us at all except for my mom and my girlfriend and people who forgot to turn off the TV after Keith, you are still wrong on what really matters, and that would be the facts, your highness."
