Really? O'Reilly says the person who appeared to be a police officer was a Secret Service agent. OK. It's D.C., whatever. Then he says of Branden Lane,Â â€œI felt the guy was out of control.â€ O'Reilly also saysÂ Branden Lane was armed -- "armed with a cell phone camera." Do you believe this? What did O'Reilly think Lane was going to do? Call him? Gotta love how O'Reilly has to make this an attack not only on him, but how he attacks the Occupy Movement. O'Reilly then lies and says, "I turned to shield myself, and my assistant, with an umbrella." Apparently "shielding" includes pushing an umbrella into someone. Then -- get this -- O'Reilly, a small government conservative, says he's angry "and there ought to be a law," to protect him from "attacks" like this. Really? As Keith Olbermann pointed out, O'Reilly did not show his viewers the video -- because it proves he's not telling the truth.

"Iâ€™m like 'Mr. Oâ€™Reilly why are you doing this to me? Why are you attacking me with your umbrella?' I was shocked. I was telling someone earlier itâ€™s not every day you meet Bill Oâ€™Reilly, and itâ€™s not every day you get attacked by an umbrella.â€ â€œI was completely shocked with the situation," Lane adds. "You would think that somebody whoâ€™s in the public spotlight just like he is just like you are would not react that way. Like you said people come up to you all the time and ask to take your picture or they video you, and even if they donâ€™t agree with you, youâ€™re a decent human being. "You donâ€™t attack them then try to accuse them of attacking them. Like I said itâ€™s another example of the type of person Bill Oâ€™Reilly is. Heâ€™s main informant of the one percent, and itâ€™s just sad. People like him need to be checked, and Iâ€™m glad we had the opportunity to do that.â€ Branden Lane told Keith Olbermann that O'Reilly represents the one percent, and I agree. The lying one percent.
