Notice the B-roll footage in the background at the end of the clip, complete with the calming backdrop of palm trees and....wait there are palm trees in Madison, Wisconsin?

No there are not. But that's because the footage comes from a solidarity protest in Sacramento, CA. It's an altercation that sparked a brief cri de coeur online this Saturday, when conservatives thought they'd found the clip that could undermine the entire pro-union movement. It didn't. And in fact, as the O'Reilly segment suggests, it was just about the only thing they could find.

Fox did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Update: A Fox News spokesperson declined to comment, referring us instead to this Mediaite piece on the same subject.
