TV personalities trade verbal jabs over Lincoln’s legacy

Lincoln’s name came up in a verbal skirmish between two national TV hosts this week.  MSNBC’s Chris Hayes took aim at Bill O’Reilly on Wednesday, tweeting that the Great Emancipator “would have hated” the controversial Fox News personality who co-wrote a popular book on Lincoln’s assassination.  O’Reilly responded by referring to Hayes as a “low-rated” host, claiming that “what President Lincoln really despised was desperation.”
