“A better anchorman and a better person would’ve had a better reaction to technical difficulties,” O’Donnell said. “I’m sorry.”

The video has drawn a ton of attention on Twitter. Among the comparisons evoked by the O’Donnell tirade; Bill O’Reilly’s infamous “WE’LL DO IT LIVE!” rant during a taping of Inside Edition.
