O'Reilly said to threaten reporter 'with everything I have'

Source: USA Today

Laura Mandaro, USA TODAY 8:55 a.m. EST February 24, 2015

Fox News talk show host and political commentator Bill O'Reilly threatened to retaliate against a reporter "with everything I have" if he felt her coverage of his war-time reporting was inappropriate, the reporter said.

In a tweet late Monday, New York Times reporter Emily Steel said O'Reilly told her "I am coming after you with everything I have," and "You can take it as a threat."

Steel linked to a Times article that detailed O'Reilly's efforts to refute claims by the magazine Mother Jones and interviews with former journalists at CBS News that O'Reilly gave an inaccurate portrayal of his reporting experience during the Falkland Islands conflict between Argentina and Britain in 1982 while he worked at CBS News. In contrast to O'Reilly's statements in a 2001 book, he did not report from active war-zones, the Mother Jones and interviews allege.

“I am coming after you with everything I have,” Mr. O’Reilly told me. “You can take it as a threat.” http://t.co/gXsH3Zqaig

32. Check

I wonder if this female reporter is married? Want to bet Bill-O checked to make sure, so he does not have a MAN to confront? He is good at threatening females, men are another story altogether. This reporter should take advice from Andrea Mackiss (sp?) about how to fight back from the bullying. Remember when Bill-O wanted his wife's lover destroyed, and he reminded the police chied about the donations he had made to their organizations?

Notice he said inappropriate, and not inaccurate

It may be inappropriate as far as O'Reilly is concerned, but it's still true...

13. O’Reilly, “I want to stop this now,” he said. “I hope we can stop it. I really do.”

Heat, kitchens....... It's not going to stop Billy Boy. Threatening reporters certainly won't stop it. Deal with it.


On Monday’s show, Mr. O’Reilly ended his segment about the controversy saying he hoped to move past the dispute. “I want to stop this now,” he said. “I hope we can stop it. I really do.”

17. Thankfully FOX is not a fully fuctioning Political Propoganda news outlet.

They do not have an actual enforcement mechanism to protect them against those who object to the damage they inflict on the public and the truth (yet). Last I heard the First Amendment is still on the books.

He threatens and attacks those smaller and weaker than he is.

19. The most ironic thing about this is that it is O'Reilly who is angry because someone is telling the

truth. The whole faux news staff lie continually and are now angry because we are calling them out. The people who advertise on these shows need to limbo the lot of them. Start demanding that the people they advertise on tell the truth and start educating the listeners again.

Imagine, BillO's being held accountable for what spews forth from his excuse of a mouth.

Ailes "standing behind him" needs to be challenged, as well. Of course, BillO would sue him if he even made him take time off, I'm sure.

27. What does he mean by "inappropriate"? Makes no sense.

O'Reilly says he'll go after the reporter if her coverage of him is "inappropriate", but I wonder what that means. As I see it, the only way it could be so is if she says he was masturbating to an Olivia Newton John workout tape before reading his report. That would be a very inappropriate thing to say.

Reporting on facts of the day is neither appropriate or not, it's simply journalism. If O'Reilly said he would go after her for reporting "inaccurately" that would make sense, but I have a feeling he doesn't really fear that.

When news people report on stuff that news entertainment personalities say as actual news, we get this.

We know that Fox is #1 in news entertainment. Problem is too many people think Fox does real news.

These types are so big and bad behind their microphones, with their artificial environments in which they control every aspect of the conversation. When one person attempts to expose their lies, they come unglued.
