    Hopefully he will get some serious jail time for his crimes.

    You admire him. Telling.

    I admire his bank balance and that's all, I'm still searching for your redeeming qualities considering.

    Tucker Carlson is replacing Bully O’Reilly. This is the right winger who has claimed that Hilary Clinton is his secret guilty fantasy and ““One area of liberal phenomenon I support is female bi-sexuality — this apparent increased willingness of girls to bring along a friend.” (http://www.salon.com/2004/03/09/tucker_4/)

    Stepping it up there, Fox? Appealing to the younger, hipper, and still sexist pig demographic?

    I like bOR , the consenting women he sleeps with is no concern to me.

    If he molested young boys and girls that would be different.

    What he does with his middle leg is his own business, there's always lawyers encouraging women to go after him, the NYTs already had a story on this.

    The story cost FOX, and BoR each millions of dollars. To say nothing of reputation.

    Consenting adults, fine; non-consensual inappropriate advances etc are crimes, bobbys. Deal with it.

    I know not whether to hate the guy or defend him. I don't pretend to know the truth of the accusations but there are plenty here who would, were someone to accuse him of something ugly, believe it solely because of political hatred

    Millions in settled suits paid out by Fox is a whole lot of smoke. The accusations are too multiple to reasonably be expected to all be groundless, even if they don't meet a judicial standard of proof. That is what the advertisers determined, based on their own risk analysis, and Fox had little real choice but to agree, if they were to protect their revenue streams.

    The truth is, you don't pay out $13 million if you think you could win at trial.

    Some first reactions --

    http://www.newyorker.com/news/news-d...ocial_facebook

    Credit where it’s due: Fox News finally got rid of Bill O’Reilly, a mere decade and a half after finding out that he was a flamboyant workplace harasser. In 2002, the network paid out the first of five harassment settlements, which would eventually amount to thirteen million dollars spent on his behalf to compensate female complainants.......

    If you don't know the substance of the topic then you sure as all hell can't say the accusations of some are political. ONCE you have some knowledge of the topic your opinion about others judgements might carry some weight but starting out the gate you declare ignorance, everything after that is cotton candy.

    That O'Reilly! He's a guy. He sure likes the women. 'Course, he don't beat 'em, bite 'em, or rape 'em; like Bill Clinton, but he sure likes 'em.

    You are mistaken.

    Bill O'Reilly does not like women.

    Men who like women do not have these kinds of problems.

    Bill O'Reilly HATES women. He is what is known as a 'misogynist'.



    The thing he hates most about women is that he does not control their vaginas.

    Whenever this fact is reasserted, he loses his grip and begins to abuse them.


    You are mistaken, sir, and I think that's sad.

    Again, you are completely ignorant of Bill O'Reilly's behavior BY YOUR OWN ADMISSION, so please quit acting as though you know it all.

    It makes you look bad.

    Bears repeating: Men who like women do not have these kinds of problems.

    Some $13 million in settlements substantiated so far. Of course, they were OK with keeping him on until the advertisers started pulling out, because he was making them enough money to cover the expenses.

    I don't know if this is how it actually went down, but the segment I heard on the radio had whichever fox news "host" guy announcing that O'Reilly had been fired with Willie Nelson's To All The Girls I've Loved Before playing in the background.

    man that's good stuff.

    Again, look at Bully O'Reilly's replacement. Fox is not moving away from right wing sexism. They are just shifting to the hipper younger right wing sexist demographic.
