    Bill O'Reilly called a San Francisco supervisor a "pinhead" after the supervisor commented that "Fox News is not real news"

    Fox News cameras tried to rile up San Francisco Supervisors over the shooting death of Kate Steinle, but it didn't go so well. 

    "They are unrepentant over the death of Kate Steinle," declared "O'Reilly Factor" host Bill O'Reilly on an episode that aired Tuesday. "The 'Factor' contacted all of them, asking politely for an interview. They all declined, so we went to them."

    The show sent cameras to approach Jane Kim, Katy Tang, and Scott Weiner unannounced.

    "I think the issue here is gun control," said Kim. "No individual with that type of record should be able to access or be able to have possession of a gun."

    Tang told the cameras, "Of course Fox News would be this rude."

    "We tried this through your office and we got no response," answered the crew.

    "Because you're interviewing the wrong f****** person!" replied Tang.

    "So you see those women will not take responsibility for the danger they allow, and it gets worse," said O'Reilly.

    "Fox News is not real news and you're not a reporter. I talk to real news only. Fox News is not real news," said Scott Weiner as he brushed past cameras into his office.

    "What a pinhead," retorted O'Reilly. "Now, there comes a point where people get the government they deserve. That has surely happened in San Francisco. The ultra-left controls the city and an innocent woman, Kate Steinle, is dead because of policies that endanger the public."

    Steinle, 32, was walking along a waterfront pier in San Francisco when she was shot by a gun allegedly fired by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a Mexican national who was in the country illegally.

    Steinle's parents said Monday in an interview with O'Reilly for the Fox News talk show that they support a proposal to give mandatory prison time to deported people who return to the U.S. illegally.

    Congressman Matt Salmon (R-AZ) introduced the so-named Kate's Law in response to the shooting, and O'Reilly is collecting signatures for a petition supporting the proposal, which would impose a mandatory five years in federal prison for people who are deported and return and 10 years for people caught a second time.
