Remember when Bill O’Reilly threatened to have Fox security “pay a little visit” to a caller’s home merely for mentioning Keith Olbermann’s name on air during his syndicated radio show? The caller began by telling O’Reilly, “I like to listen to you during the day.” Continuing, the caller stated, “I think Keith Olbermann’s show,” at which point O’Reilly disconnected the call, proclaiming: “Mike is — he’s a gone guy. You know, we have his — we have your phone numbers, by the way. So, if you’re listening, Mike, we have your phone number, and we’re going to turn it over to Fox security, and you’ll be getting a little visit.” Co-host E.D. Hill — who also co-hosts Fox News’ Fox & Friends — chimed in: “Maybe Mike is from the mothership.” O’Reilly responded that the caller was “going to get into big trouble, because we’re not going to play around.” Warning his listeners, O’Reilly continued: “When you call us, ladies and gentleman, just so you know, we do have your phone number, and if you say anything untoward, obscene, or anything like that, Fox security will then contact your local authorities, and you will be held accountable. Fair?”
In another example, a woman who had called into O’Reilly’s show and disagreed also received a call from Fox Security while in her car with her daughter. The woman burst into tears and was frightened by the intimidation tactic.
