Susan Filan, a former prosecuter says the one person that might have a legal problem is O'Reilly himself. I called the head of FOX security for comment, but he hasn't returned my call as yet.

Here's the transcript :

First it was the warnings to NBC chairman Robert Wright, then the phone calls to NBC president Jeff Zucker, then the petition to get me fired and Phil Donahue brought back, then the erroneous ratings information he gave out. Even in that context, though, this is pretty special. Ted Baxter telling uncooperative listeners that he'll turn their phone numbers over to Fox security, and that Fox security will in turn contact the local authorities.

Bill thinks he has his own police.

A caller got through to O'Reilly's radio show yesterday. He insists he used no foul language, that all he did was mention my name, compliment my show, and asked, Why are you always smearing him, Bill? And the host, using the dump button all talk radio shows have on the seven-second delay, cut him off.

We're not certain what actually got on the air, but this was what was posted on O'Reilly's Web site as the air check for that part of the show.
