Fox news TV host won't apologize for calling Putin a "killer"

07.02.2017, 12:35

Russian President Vladimir Putin could be waiting a long time for an apology from Bill O'Reilly, CNN reported.

The Fox News host responded late Monday to an angry statement from the Kremlin over his description of Putin as "a killer."

"Apparently, the Putin administration in Moscow [is] demanding that I -- your humble correspondent -- apologize for saying 'Old Vlad' is a killer," O'Reilly said on his Fox show. "So I'm working on that apology, but it might take a little time. Might want to check in with me around 2023."
 

The Fox host's response appears unlikely to satisfy Peskov's call for an apology "from such a respected TV company."

O'Reilly made the remark about Putin during an interview with U.S. President Donald Trump. When Trump said he respected Putin, O'Reilly responded: "He's a killer, though. Putin's a killer." Trump fired back: "There are a lot of killers. You think our country's so innocent?"
