Mr. O’Reilly’s efforts to refute the claims by Mother Jones and some former CBS News colleagues occurred both on the air and off on Monday. During a phone conversation, he told a reporter for The New York Times that there would be repercussions if he felt any of the reporter’s coverage was inappropriate. “I am coming after you with everything I have,” Mr. O’Reilly said. “You can take it as a threat.”
The New York Times story carries the bylines of Emily Steel and Ravi Somaiya. Steel tweeted last night:
If O’Reilly continues at this desperate pace, “everything I have” soon won’t amount to much.
