Last Friday I mentioned how Gawker's John Cook was claiming that a recent, bizarre Fox News attack against the legendarily snarky NYC-centric website was in fact a preemptive strike. According to Cook, he was about to go public with an embarrassing item featuring one of Fox's hosts and the network was responding in advance by trying to trash Gawker's reputation in an attempt to discredit it.
Well, that story has now been published.
It involves Bill O'Reilly, his estranged wife, the guy who may be her new boyfriend, and the Nassau County Police Department.
It's pretty entertaining stuff -- although given what we know about O'Reilly's personality, not the least bit surprising.
