In the course of doubling down on his widely-disputed claims about what exactly he was doing in Argentina during the Falklands War, Bill O'Reilly also managed to threaten a New York Times reporter.

During a phone conversation on Monday, O'Reilly told Times media reporter Emily Steel that there would be consequences if he didn't like the way the story she was writing came out.

"I am coming after you with everything I have," O'Reilly said. "You can take it as a threat."

Steel shares a byline on the story with Ravi Somaiya, but Somaiya gave her credit on Twitter for the quote.
