Fox Fires Back at Gawker

Dismisses, but doesn't deny, story about Bill O'Reilly, his wife, and Nassau County cops

Fox News is firing back at Gawker for its Bill O’Reilly story. Earlier today, Gawker posted what it billed as a major exclusive—a story by John Cook claiming that prime-time host Bill O’Reilly had attempted to coax the internal affairs unit of his hometown police department into investigating one of its officers, because O’Reilly believed an officer was having an extra-marital affair with his wife.
