Lib­eral bil­lion­aire Mark Cuban, owner of the Dal­las Mav­er­icks bas­ket­ball team, is in the crosshairs of con­ser­va­tive ra­dio and TV for bankrolling the anti-mil­i­tary movie “Redacted.”

On Nov. 19, Mr. Cuban lashed out at Fox News Chan­nel per­son­al­ity Bill O’Reilly, say­ing that Mr. O’Reilly’s re­lent­less crit­i­cism over the past month had led to death threats against him­self and his em­ploy­ees.

Mr. Cuban, writ­ing at blogmav­er­, said he sus­pected Mr. O’Reilly was in­sin­cere in his crit­i­cism, do­ing it only for the rat­ings, so he had some­one con­tact the net­work to place an ad for the movie — on Mr. O’Reilly’s pro­gram.

“They said no prob­lem. Do you want to run the ads in both the live show and the re­peat?” Mr. Cuban said. The ad, in fact, did ap­pear on the pro­gram, he said.
