Barney Frank vs. Bill O'Reilly Over Financial Crisis

A segment on Thursday night's edition of Fox News' The Factor with Bill O'Reilly featured a spirited shouting match between the host and House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-MA), one of the point people for the recently passed Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, the so-called Federal bailout bill. By the end of the shouting match, the esteemed Congressman Frank looks more rumpled than he usually does, and the ever popular Mr. O'Reilly looks like he's about to implode.
