FOX News fires Bill O'Reilly for alleged sexual harassment. O'Reilly then pays $32 million dollars to squelch a ****-harass accuser, after which FOX rehires him for $100 million. What is wrong with this picture?

Top Comment

Bill O'Reilly is a sexual predator, just like Harvey Weinstein - just like Donald Trump.

We must stop rewarding sexual predators.

It was a business decision by the Murdoch family. Keep O'Reilly or lose him to another media concern? Morals, decency and "what's right" have zero to do with it.

People have no morals, it's all about money. They fire O'Reilly, and Weinstein gets the boot, Ails gets fired all for doing exactly what Trump has done, and he becomes president. That's what's wrong with this picture.

Back in JFK and LBJ's time these things were ignored by the press and women did not claim sexual harassment, but a few of Clinton's are documented fairly well. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B...ct_allegations

Nor had anyone came forward and written a tell all book about either of those two. I never got the feeling that careers were crushed, or jobs threatened, regarding JFK or LBJ.

With Trump, O'Reily, Cosby, and Weinstein I see more of an abuse of power.

Nor do I get the impression that JFK, LBJ, or Clinton hated women, like I do with O'Reily and Trump.

All three were lousy husbands, but I still am not connecting a ' power play'.

What I mean, is that those four examples used their positions to make or break people's careers. Cosby could do no wrong in the eighties, and Weinstein was greatly feared.

I am not condoning the actions of either JFK, or LBJ, but I wonder if we are not equating infidelity with sexual harassment.

What Clinton did was not only stupid but morally wrong, and he paid the ultimate price. Trump, however, seems to have gotten a free pass.

I enjoy our discussions.

I understand what you are saying. I just think the standards of the 50's and 60's are way different than today so the comparison is flawed at best. LBJ is reported to have been quite the **** to everyone so I wouldn't doubt he would abuse his power. Plus look at the guy, he didn't have the Kennedy looks. Ha!

It was not covered by the press, because they use to have more respect for the office. Now, everything is fair game. But I still don't think it is right that Trump got elected even after the Hollywood tape came out. That sure doesn't say much about respect for women in this country.

LBJ was despised by most that knew him. He was a respected figure who knew how to twist an arm, but he was far from likable.

Remember Jeremiah? He had actually interviewed Johnson during his presidency, and said that it was quite an uncomfortable experience.

Yes, he was as horrible on the outside, as he was inside.

Because people generally only list the people of the opposite party. I don't think it is party related. It is power related and the corruption that comes with thinking you are above the law.

My post didn't list anyone of any party. I believe it was you who raised the question about political people. I'm questioning why people justify the wrong that one person has done by claiming that others have done the same thing. None of them have done right.

No doubt, Will. Fox News is undeniably a conservative leaning channel, however, and they are the subject of this post.

It will be interesting to see if there will be a response from the viewership or the sponsors. I doubt this is over. I personally never cared for O'Reilly. He was rude and narcissistic in my opinion.

O'Reilly is a colossal **** in my opinion, but he had quite a following on Fox and they are concerned with ratings and their bottom line.

I can take him or leave him but his books are phenomenal, Really good history lessons between the pages there.
O'Reilly said he wished he had fought back against the charges against him. How about posting what he was accused of because from what I saw he was a horn dog but I didn't see much perversion from him like some in the news. I could be wrong on this one but we'll see.

There have been several complaints against him over the past 20 years and he has settled several of them out of court. This was the most recent. If you ask me, an innocent man does not pay $32 MILLION dollars just to avoid a lawsuit.

I also worked in law firms and the 32 mil was over a period of time. When you are a conservative and make the kind of money O did, I do believe it was less costly and less stressful to settle.
Do you honestly think saying "hot chocolate" to an A/A woman was sexual harassment?

I'm guessing it was more than just that statement. I can't imagine him paying that kind of money if that was all he said.

When a first grader kissed another first grader on the playground and he wound up with a sexual harassment charge, I learned not to put too much faith in these kind of charges. In the meantime Weinstein really was a predator and was protected. It is a warped system so until we know the details, we shouldn't make such broad judgements.
