Watch David Corn Discuss Threats From Bill O’Reilly With Rachel Maddow

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.

Watch Maddow’s segment on the story and her interview with David Corn below:

FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.

$400,000 to go: Please help us pick up the pace!
