On Wednesday night, Mother Jones DC Bureau Chief David Corn appeared on the Rachel Maddow show to discuss threats made against him following a story he co-authored with Daniel Schulman about Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly’s reporting on the Falklands War. After Mother Jones published the story, the Fox host suggested that Corn should be placed “in the kill zone.” Corn spoke with Maddow about O’Reilly’s “violent” rhetoric and its repercussions:
I have family members, I have friends who are concerned about me now. And why? Only because I’m doing my job as a reporter in Washington, D.C., not in a war zone, and yet they now fear that, you know, that language like that might have repercussions.
