An investigation by The New York Times has found a total of five women who have received payouts from either Mr. O’Reilly or the company in exchange for agreeing to not pursue litigation or speak about their accusations against him. The agreements totaled about $13 million.
The women who made allegations against Mr. O’Reilly either worked for him or appeared on his show. They have complained about a wide range of behavior, including verbal abuse, lewd comments, unwanted advances and phone calls in which it sounded as if Mr. O’Reilly was masturbating, according to documents and interviews.
The reporting suggests a pattern: As an influential figure in the newsroom, Mr. O’Reilly would create a bond with some women by offering advice and promising to help them professionally. He then would pursue sexual relationships with them, causing some to fear that if they rebuffed him, their careers would stall.
Bill O’Reilly, you dirty dog. Just casually calling chicks while you’re fapping and smacking asses in the hallway. That’s how you let everyone in the building know who’s in charge. When you have the number one show on Fox News, you get perks. I totally understand.
I assume the Fox News building is set up exactly like Sterling Cooper from Mad Men. Old creepy men sipping scotch all day and reaching up secretary’s skirts as they promise to give them a promotion if they shut up and get the abortion.
It’s just a fun locker room environment over there. Unless you’re a young blonde reporter trying to make it in the industry and you can’t get a promotion until you spend the night in Bill O’Reilly’s hotel suite.
Shout out to Bill O’Reilly for straight up ignoring all of these allegations and having a normal show on Monday like this is all no big deal. Power move to pretend like you’re not the cover story for the New York Times and like you didn’t pay $13 million to get your victims to stop telling everyone that they’re you’re victims.
That’s why he is the master of the spin zone and we’re all stuck having to listen to his phone calls while he faps.
I’d like to think Camron predicted this years ago…
YOU MAAAAD, YOU MAAAAD.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think it’s the end of the road for Bill O’Reilly after this sexual harassment settlement. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
