Looks Like Bill O'Reilly is in Trouble

I hate to gloat, but this makes me happier than hell.

This is an excerpt from Media Bistro's Daily News Feed, a newsletter I subscribe to.

Lawyers for Fox News had proposed the $2 million settlement to Andrea Mackris and her lawyer Benedict Morelli. Slate: O'Reilly's porn obsession. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal: Somewhere, Bill Clinton can't wipe the smile off his face, writes Eugene Kane. NYO: TV industry rife with sexual harassment, says attorney.

Yes, I've been following that story, he countersued her before she even got her suit filed. Too funny.

The story she tells, if true (and I somehow don't doubt the truth of it since the most outspoken straight-and-narrow types are so often the worst offenders behind the scenes) is amazing, and the sex part might be considered relatively insignificant, but the threats and intimidation, why, that is a whole other thing.

I hope she doesn't take the offer. I hope she nails him to the wall.

I like the way Al Franken talks about O'Reilly. One of the funniest things was the fact that O'Reilly criticized the sexual tone of some liberal writers, while he himself had written a book with explicit sexscenes. Funny.
O'Reilly is a pompous ***. I hope he gets everything he has coming to him. I loved his comment about John Stewart's Daily Show audience being a "bunch of dope smoking slackers". According to surveys the Daily Show audience is more highly educated and more informed about current events than O'Reilly's audience. Of course you don't need a survey to come to that conclusion

I've heard the same thing. O'Reilly is doing a good job for Kerry this way (if you know what I mean).
Rush Limbaugh gets nailed for drug use, O'Reilly for sexual harrassment...now if they can get something on Hannity
Haggis is right. It seems a lot of "in your face" riteous sobs turn out to have an interesting(sordid?) hidden lifestyle they themselves would condemn in public. Bunch of hypocrites.

They do it everytime...just like television preachers and Roman emperors. They are demagogues and they start to believe their own myths.

Typically, such 'righteous' people feel holy and pure even after their dirty deeds, because in their minds, they are mere innocents who have been 'tempted by the devil'.
