Video: Bill O'Reilly Defends Ellen DeGeneres

| by Michael Allen

In a surprise move, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly took on conservative Sandy Rios of Family-Pac Federal over the controversy that has swirled around the activist group 'One Million Moms' and their effort to get Ellen DeGeneres fired as a JC Penney spokeswoman because she is a lesbian (video below).

While Rios argued that DeGeneres represented immorality and should lose her job, O'Reilly disagreed: “I don’t think that’s the spirit of America. What is the difference between a McCarthy-era blacklist and Million Moms? It’s a witch hunt and it shouldn’t happen."
