On Monday, Fox News host Megyn Kelly interviewed Bill Burton, a spokesman for Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL). As she repeated the right-wing talking points alleging Obama has a “socialist” agenda, Burton criticized Fox’s constant coverage of the ridiculous claims. After Kelly described the interview to Bill O’Reilly last night, O’Reilly lept to her defense, wondering — slightly in jest — whether they could “arrest Burton and charge him with anything for being mean to Megyn.” Watch it:

In 2006, O’Reilly infamously threatened a caller into his radio show with “a little visit” from “Fox security” for having the audacity to utter Keith Olbermann’s name.
