Fox News has sent a reporter to New York to ask people how much homeless people bother them.

Jesse Watters hit busy rail terminal, Penn Station, to talk to local business operators about their feelings on the issue of homelessness.

They said they felt the problem of homelessness had got worse since Bill DeBlasio became mayor and that Republican Mayor Rudy Guliani was tougher on homeless people.

The punters all expressed sadness that people were living on the streets but also revealed they sometimes felt threatened.

Watters also spoke to homeless people themselves and asked them why they were homeless and if they had any money.

They told him crack and alcohol were the reason why they were homeless.

The segment ran on Monday's O'Reilly Factor on Fox News.
