Viewers are not happy with some of the jokes on this week's 'Watters' World'.
'The O'Reilly Factor' correspondent Jesse Watters has caused outrage across the net with his segment of 'Watters' World' on Monday (October 3rd 2016), whereby he visited Chinatown in New York to discuss the impending presidential election with the locals and ended up making blatantly racist remarks.
Bill O'Reilly confessed he knew they would 'get letters' for the segment
It was less of a political discussion and more of a 5 minute onslaught of racial stereotypes, whereby Watters repeatedly asked ridiculous questions to members of the Chinatown community regarding their culture in between quizzing them about who they are planning to vote for in the election.
Bill O'Reilly has unsurprisingly criticized Ben Affleck for his liberal views on Islam.
Bill O'Reilly has sided with Bill Maher and Sam Harris following their heated debate with Hollywood actor Ben Affleck on Islamaphobia on Friday (October 3, 2014). The Gone Girl actor branded Maher's comments as "gross and racist".
"We have been sold this Islamaphobia, where criticism of the religion gets conflated with bigotry towards Muslims as people," Harris had said. "It's intellectually ridiculous."

Megyn Kelly's show will not be a partisan.
Kelly is a quick-witted presenter, though despite being given a huge platform, the 31-year-old doesn't intend to become a partisan broadcaster.
"If you watch O'Reilly, you hear a lot about what Bill O'Reilly thinks" she told the Associated Press, "Sean Hannity, same thing. But you're not going to hear what I think."

The actor will be joined by Ginnifer Goodwin and Michelle Trachtenberg in the follow-up to 'Killing Lincoln' that is expected to air in November
Actor Rob Lowe will take on one of his most famous roles to date, with the Parks and Recreation star lined up to portray the 35th President of the United States in the upcoming Bill O'Reilly helmed docu-drama Killing Kennedy. Variety reported that Lowe will be joined by co-stars Ginnifer Goodwin as Jacqueline Kennedy and Michelle Trachtenberg as Marina Oswald, Lee Harvey Oswald's wife.
Fresh from the success of the National Geographic's Killing Lincoln one-off, the network will follow-up the show with a tell-all account of the nation's second most famous assassination of all time. Clearly they have spared no expense by bringing in one of television's biggest stars to portray the deceased President, the show will be based on the O'Reilly novel of the same name and will follow the same formula used in Killing Lincoln.
Variety's report goes on to state that filming for the one-off special will begin in June this year, with the show expected to air on Nat Geo in November to coincide with the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. The docu-drama is likely to be one of many special on the assassination of President Kennedy, half a century after he was assassinated by former-Marine Oswald whilst being paraded through the streets of Dallas, Texas in an open top car.

TV host Bill O'Reilly is snapped by photographers as he gets into his awaiting car after leaving 'The Late Show with David Letterman' in New York City.
With election fever hotting up in the USA, Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly took to their soapboxes to provide their own debate over the Presidential duel running between current incumbent Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Unsurprisingly though, given that the host of The Daily Show and The O'Reilly Commentary man are known for their irreverence, the conversation soon turned into something a little more trivial and light hearted, with much of the debate coming down to their respective heights.
Called Rumble In The Air-Conditioned Auditorium, the live-streamed 90 minute chat soon descended into humour with the 5'7 Stewart looking positively diminutive next to the 6'4 O'Reilly. This was addressed by the production team, who gave Stewart a mechanical platform so that he could rise and lower himself. "I can see why Obama did badly in the debate," he said after going up. "The altitude really is rough up here." Their main disagreement focused on what Romney had recently said about 47% not being able to take responsibility of their lives. "About 20% of us are slackers, and it's a growing industry," O'Reilly said, only to be shot down by Stewart as "bulls***"
The debate did focus on some key points, but ultimately the aim of the game seemed to be on comedy and entertainment, which those paying $4.95 for the stream got in spades. It was certainly a great deal livelier than the real candidates' debate last week.
Politically minded TV hosts Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly brought the laughs to George Washington University in Washington, D.C., with a charity spoof of the on-going presidential campaign on Saturday night(October 6th).
Under the title The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium, Stewart stared as the fictitious Democrat facing O'Reilly's Republican 'candidate,' with the whole thing being live-streamed to an eager online audience.
The 90-minute debate first brought the laughs when the 5'7" Stewart decided to go one bit higher than the 6'4" O'Reilly by using a mechanical pedestal to gain the height advantage. Comedy Central's outspoken Liberal Stewart then proceeded to lay into Fox News controversially right-wing O'Reilly, labelling him as the 'Mayor of Bullsh*t Mountain.' The debate was not solely a chance for the two hosts to go at each other's throats though, as the whole thing was a light-hearted and good natured affair whose main purpose was to bring the laughs, USA Today and CNN have both said.
