Protesters Are Awesome: Demonstrators Rightfully Mock Bill O'Reilly's "Palm Trees" Debacle

For those who don't know, Bill O'Reilly and Fox News ostensibly intentionally deceived viewers on March 1, showing footage from a violent union protest in Sacramento, California, while discussing the other union protests currently taking place in Madison, Wisconsin. Anyone with a sharp eye could tell that O'Reilly's footage, which had giant palm trees in the background, was probably not shot in icy Wisconsin, which the host and a guest were discussing while the footage aired.
