O'Reilly OK with Talking to Rita Cosby

9/4/2007 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that FOX News' righty flamethrower, Bill O'Reilly, is still planning to interview Rita Cosby about her controversial Anna Nicole book, legal threat or no threat -- even though the "Today" show pulled the plug on their interview this morning, after getting a searing letter threatening legal action from Howard K. Stern's lawyer, Lin Wood.
O'reilly, rita cosby
We're told that Cosby has confirmed her appearance on "The O'Reilly Factor" this evening and is scheduled to appear on several other news and talk shows this week. Early this morning, "Today" backed out of its sit-down with Cosby after Wood threatened to sue the program for any false information that she might pour forth during her talk with Matt Lauer.

Like him or not - O'Reilly knows how to get his voice heard and he doesn't fold under pressure. Why is his show so highly rated? Because his fans watch him as well as people who don't like him. There's usually fireworks on his show, so all I can say is Go Bill Go!

He's no soft shoe and many politicos wouldn't dream of going on his show - he's tough and doesn't let anyone do puff on his show.

You need more? you got more. YOU GOT VIDEO TAPE.
YOU GOT THAT ANNA WATCHED THIS VIDEO AND THE MAIDS WALKED IN ON HER WATCHING IT.....IT WAS REPORTED THAT IT WAS JUST "BUNK" AND THE MAIDS "LIED"

THE SEXUAL ROMP HAPPENED IN CA, BUT SINCE NO ONE WAS PRIVY TO THIS BESDIDE THE PLAYERS AND THE WALK-INGS, WHO KNOWS HOW MANY TIMES HOWARD VISITED OL' LARRY IN CA. ...........LETS REMEMBER THAT NO ONE EVEN KNEW HE WAS SPENDING THE NIGHT AT LARRY'S HOUSE IN CALIFORNIA UNTIL SOMEONE SPILLED THE BEANS.....NO ONE EVEN KNEW HE WAS EVEN IN CALIFORNIA FOR DADDY'S DAY UNTIL THEN....IT WAS DENIED OF COURSE, THEN [''''OOOOPS, THRE HE WAS OUTSIDE LARRY'S HOUSE WITH DANNIELYNN."

SO YOU WNT PROOF???? YOU STERNOIDS DONT WANT PROOF.....YOU CLEARLY JUST WANT STALL.....NO MATTER HOW MUCH PROOF YOU ARE GIVEN YOU COME BACK ASKING FOR "PROOF"...........WHAT'S YOUR NAME, "CHEMICAL AL?" OR "BAGDAD BOB"?

BY THE WAY JUST HOW LONG DO YOU THINK ITS GOING TO BE BEFORE SOMEONE MAKES THAT VIDEO PUBLIC JUST FOR PUBLIC HUMILIATION OF THESE TWO JERKS?
DO YOU THINK ALL THREE OF YOU COULD STOP THAT? MAYBE LIKE YOU SHUT RITA UP?" SHUT HER DOWN ONE PLACE AND THE OTHER PLACES WANT HE THE MORE.

AND BY THE WAY HAVE YOU HAD A BOOK REPORT YET? I HEAR HER BOOK IS SELLING AND BY ONE REPORT, IT IS SURE TO HIT BEST SELLER IF IT KEEPS GOING ON THE TREND IT IS NOW FOLLOWING..

By the way, ALL of Lin Wood's deals with the media in the Ramsey case need to be opened for public scrutiny. Is it that for chump change in order to say he "won" a settlement. ALL of these deals are NOT in the public interest? The public cannot make their own mind up about the settlements, as they are all sealed, and Wood can spin them without public scrutiny.

Well. I 'll be watching for sure! I enjoy Bill's show as he is not afraid of anyone and he says it like it is!! Also I'm so sick and tired of two-faced politicians who speak PC that to hear Bill is very refreshing! Also Michelle Malkin! She's great..Only losers don't like the o'Reilly show!!
You all go watch Rosie...suppose you think she's a good journalist..haha..
The Factor has more fan than any other show so try explain that! Or why do you watch it? I would rather play dominoes than watch that awful Rosie!!

Just for your information, O'Reilly isn't a Republican. He is an independent. Just because he isn't a left wing wacko, you like to label him as a right wing flamethrower. Because of O'Reilly, crimes against children are at a an all time low. He gets the people involved to get laws passed to throw these child killers in jail forever. The reason he happens to be #1 on cable is because he brings in both sides and gets to the bottom of issues. He isn't afraid to interview anyone, unlike NBC, and I'll watch it. Also, since when does NBC cancel anything controversal because of alleged misconduct? This was a first!! They are usually the first to report on anything without investigation. They are the first to report on republicans gone astray, yet throw stories about dems under the carpet. Remember William Jefferson and his $90,000 bribe money found in the freezer? Nancy Pelosi then put him in a top security position!!!!! Good for O'Reilly bring an "alleged" story out and leaving it up to the people to decide.

Any news agency that backs down from "threats" isn't worth watching in the first place. If a little 'ol letter shuts them up then the public has and will continue to endure censorship and not freedom of the press.

Thanks "Bill" for letting Rita have the same public forum that Stern and Birkhead demand.

Now you know why Fox and O'Reilly are #1 in ratings. It's their "ballsy" reporting. I will tune in for sure!

how very shallow of you. do you really think this is about sexual preferences?
then you missed the subject. This is about lies about the affair that was possibly conspired just to use a child for money.

this is about murder deceit and more lies.
Two people are dead because someone planned it....Larry might be the innocent party. Howard might have made sure he got with larry just to have something to blackmail him with. why else would he video tape it? Larry was obviously surprised that it was on tape. It shook him so bad he stopped eating right after being threatened with the video when he went to horizons to visit howard.

everything that has gone down, clearly speaks that howard planned this think from the day he met anna, possibly before that. he could have very well sought her out as a client but she thinks she just happened upon him. this is a coniving murderous sick mind you are dealing with. anyone who would have sex with another man and then use it against him is sick, sick, sick.

Where's the follow up on Danny's death in the Bahamas? Thought there was going to be a court hearing on the inquest. What happened to the big house in the Bahamas? Did the owners get it back? What happened to Anna's estate (what was left of it)? Is there any dates for going after the Howard Marshall money? Seems like all the TV reporters and news media dropped the ball after they found out Larry was the real daddy.

I just don't believe Larry is gay although Anna herself led a gay life for several years. I think she was the one who wanted to go to the gay places and because Howard and Larry did everything she wanted, they took her there.

missing link is that it is not the letter threatening to sue that scares them off.
What it is, is that you have so many people in high places with second life sexual behavior and lin wood finds out the stories and threatens to expose certain people's life style.

the ones that dont back down are straight up people who have nothing to hide.
obviously someone at NBC does. Might not be Lauer, but someone in that camp that call the shots for sure.

YU GO BILL........YOU GO RITA..............YOU GO OKAY MAGAZINE..........WE NEED TRUE HEROS, NOT WHIMPS, AND MURDERERS AND THEIR SLEAZY LAWYERS.

anyone ever notice how truth burns a hole in the soles of the sternoids' shoes?

they are not even willing to hear the other side. they immediately jump in saying NO, NO,NO, without even hearing what they are saying "no" to?

DOES THAT TELLYOU THAT THESE PEOPLE ARE PAID TO BLOG A CERTAIN THING OR NOT? I mean if they were honest, at least ONE of them would say, Well, I'll form my opinion after i hear the interview. BUNCH OF SISSIES!

SOMETHING TERRIBLY WRONG WITH PEOPLE WHO DONT EVEN WAIT TO HEAR THE INTERVIEW BEFORE THEY STARY SCREAMING NO-NO-NO, AND IMMEDITELY BEGIN LASHING OUT AT THE JOURNALIST WHO IS DOING THE INTERVIEW.


HAVE YOU STERNOIDS ANY IDEA HOW RIDICULOUS YOU SOUND? ONLY A PAID PERSON WOULD RIDICULE A MAN WHO IS ABOUT TO CONDUCT AN INTERVIEW BEFORE HE EVEN ASKS THE FIRST QUESTION. AND YU WONDER HOW PEOPLE FIGURED OUT YOU ARE PAID? NOT EVEN A DUMB OX COULD BE THAT DUMB!
