O'Reilly settles sexual harrassment lawsuit
    #3291994 - 10/29/04 01:29 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I'd give ANYTHING to hear those tapes of O'Reilly panting into
the phone like some perv. Hehehehe. This whole situation is
just too funny.

By SAMUEL MAULL, Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK - Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly said Thursday he and a
former producer of his talk show have agreed to settle their legal
dispute over her allegations of sexual harassment, and his
accusations that she was trying to shake him down.

"This brutal ordeal is now officially over, and I will never speak
of it again," he said on his talk show, "The O'Reilly Factor."

Andrea Mackris, 33, who was a producer on the show, filed a lawsuit
against the top-rated TV host Oct. 13, alleging O'Reilly made a
series of explicit phone calls to her, advised her to use a vibrator
and telling her about sexual fantasies involving her.

Earlier that day, O'Reilly, 55 and married with two children, had
filed a lawsuit accusing Mackris and her lawyer of trying to extort
$60 million in "hush money" to make the case quietly go away.

O'Reilly is host of the top-rated prime-time cable news program ?
and he's seen his ratings go up by 30 percent since the case was

He told his viewers Thursday night, "This matter has caused enormous
pain, but I had to protect my family, and I did. All I can say to
you is please do not believe everything you hear and read."

Shortly before "Factor" aired, O'Reilly's lawyer, Ronald Green,
issued a statement saying the cases and claims had been withdrawn
and all parties agreed there was no wrongdoing by O'Reilly, Mackris
or Mackris' lawyer Benedict Morelli.

Morelli did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.

Green's statement about the settlement did not mention money, and it
could not be learned immediately whether it was a factor.

"Out of respect for their families and privacy, all parties and
their representatives have agreed that all information relating to
the cases shall remain confidential," Green's statement said.

When the accusations began, Green refused to confirm or deny
specific things that Mackris claimed O'Reilly said to her, but he
said at the time that "Mr. O'Reilly denies that he has done anything
that rises to the level of unlawful sexual harassment."

Green also had said he believed there were tapes of conversations
between the two and asked a court to compel Mackris to produce them
so they could be played publicly.

"I know that he does not fear what is on the tapes," Green said at
the time.

So much for seeing who is left standing.

I couldn't care less if O'reilly sticks bowling balls up his ass...Its just the fact that he would be the first to condemn somebody else in that situation and organize a lynching. I hope she took him for everything he is worth.

"And we, inhabitants of the great coral of the Cosmos, believe the atom (which still we cannot see) to be full matter, whereas, it too, like everything else, is but an embroidery of voids in the Void, and we give the name of being, dense and even eternal, to that dance of inconsistencies, that infinite extension that is identified with absolute Nothingness and that spins from its own non-being the illusion of everything."
