Michael Calderone at the Politico has posted a response from Hertzberg:
New Yorker writer Hendrik Hertzberg told Politico that he had never been invited to appear on "The O'Reilly Factor," as host Bill O'Reilly said last night on-air.
"That's an outright lie," Hertzberg said.
On Thursday night's show, Bill O'Reilly showed footage of when he sent a camera crew to ambush New Yorker writer Hendrik Hertzberg, who he called a "far-left zealot" for something he wrote about Newt Gingrinch and gay marriage after an appearance Gingrich made on O'Reilly's show.
After some confusion and several bleeped out words, Hertzberg stood his ground, refusing to apologize for anything he wrote.
