21. Jerry Policoff has the backstory on how O'Reilly came to the investigation...

There were at least a couple of factors that Jerry Policoff was aware of:

1) The new producer of Inside Edition came from 20/20, and was determined to do real investigative journalism. As opposed to Rupert Murdoch's tabloid/gossip show, Hard Copy.

2) O'Reilly somehow came into possession of leaked CIA documents.
