O'Reilly taking heat for Tiller rhetoric

oreillyBill O'Reilly is taking some heat for the rhetoric he has used over the years about George Tiller. O'Reilly talked about Tiller on at least 29 episodes of "The O'Reilly Factor" from 2005 to 2009, according to Salon magazine. O'Reilly referred to him as "Tiller the baby killer" and said he had "blood on his hands." O'Reilly also said that there should be "a special place in hell for this guy" and likened Tiller's abortion clinic to Nazi Germany. O'Reilly defended his remarks Monday and said that "every single thing we said about Tiller was true, and my analysis was based on those facts."
