Abortion-rights advocate Mary Alice Carr has made many appearances on The O'Reilly Factor, to the anger of her progressive friends. But in an article for the Washington Post, Carr says she's through with the program—and blames Bill O'Reilly for the murder of Dr. George Tiller. "O'Reilly knew that people wanted Tiller dead," she writes, "still, he fanned the flames."

The Fox host is being "incredibly disingenuous" when he insists he did nothing wrong, and he has even continued calling the murder victim "Dr. Killer." "When you tell an audience of millions over and over again that someone is an executioner, you cannot feign surprise when someone executes that person." As for going back on the show, Carr writes, if even the killing of a man inside a church isn't enough to make O'Reilly change his ways, there is little point in debate.
