Vintage Footage Shows Rage Building
Until He Snaps: It's All Caught on Tape.
May 12) -- If you thought Bill O'Reilly has the tendency to snap on camera on his Fox News show, wait until you see some vintage footage of the boisterous host from his pre-'Factor' days.
The footage is from O'Reilly's days as a reporter on 'Inside Edition,' where he worked from 1988-1995. In it, O'Reilly is reading a promo for the show, when he begins to get irritated over teleprompter problems. He goes back and forth with a producer, switching from lip-biting to flat-out screaming and cursing by the end. There's no date given on the video to indicate what year it was filmed.
O'Reilly's temper has been somewhat of a trademark for him through the years, especially on his Fox News show 'The O'Reilly Factor.' On the show, O'Reilly often gets into yelling matches with guests, sometimes resulting in him shutting off their microphones and asking them to leave.
