fox news talking head is bill o'reilley being sued for
sexual harassment by a woman who apparently recorded
sveral of their phone conversations. most of the
conversations are about sex, but this one is not. this
conversation, as the woman puts it, is strange and
"If you cross Fox News Channel, it's not just me, it's
[Fox president] Roger Ailes who will go after you. I'm
the street guy out front making loud noises about the
issues, but Alies operates behind the scenes,
strategizes and makes things happen so that one day
BAM! The person gets what's coming to them but never
sees it coming. Look at Al Franken, one day he's going
to get a knock on his door and life as he's known it
will change forever. That day will happen, trust me."
During the course of this conversation, Defendant Bill
O'Reilley bizarrely rambled about Al Franken: "Ailes
knows very powerful people and this goes all the way
to the top." Plaintiff queried: "To the top of what?"
Defendant responded: "Top of the country. Just look at
who's on the cover of his book [Bush and Cheney],
they're watching him and will be for years. [Al
Franken's] finished, and he's going to be sorry he
ever took Fox News Channel on." Plaintiff found
O'Reilley's rambling both strange and alarming.
