1. He did have him on
He was blacked out so you couldn't see his face. He is a teacher in Orlando.

But then some DUer was claiming she was the one who called O'Reilly too. So who knows what the real scoop is.

2. as I understood it there were in fact 2 calls.
I mean do you doubt that O'really would stop with just one?

3. full context of the story...

the guy who called was indeed on Olberman last night. The full context of what he said, unedited, was, after he mentioned Olberman, he said that was the Olberman had the best show on at 8:00 and asked why bill was always trashing him. That's when bully bill pulled the plug and went on his rant. And Fox Security, astonishingly, did indeed call the guy and left him a message to call back (they played it on the air), which he did not.

As to what possible charges Fox would consider having the local authorities level against the guy, it's a complete mystery to any sane individual.

9. Weirdest part of the story
is that the call was to O'Reilly's radio show which is not on Fox but on Westwood One.

One liberal blog (Americablog) had called Fox security to ask about this but had not been able to get an answer.

6. One of the things he mentioned was that a woman had also called
and that when she got her little phone call from Fox Security, it was on her cell phone while she was driving with her daughter in the car, and that she was really upset. Olbermann looked a bit freaked by that--like, OK, it's all very well and good to laugh at this idiot and what he does, but man, he's SCARING people with this crap.

Bill O'Reilly really and truly is using intimidation tactics against callers to his radio show who say the evil words "Keith Olbermann." That's what it has come to.

What a bully.

7. ok, and so are we going to mount a full on phone-a-thon
to O'really wherein all we do is mention Olberman's name over and over and over again? What's that little bully's number anyway?
