Bill O’Reilly Thrives at Fox News, Even as Harassment Settlements Add Up

For nearly two decades, Bill O’Reilly has been Fox News’s top asset, building the No. 1 program in cable news for a network that has pulled in billions of dollars in revenues for its parent company, 21st Century Fox.

Behind the scenes, the company has repeatedly stood by Mr. O’Reilly as he faced a series of allegations of sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior.

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.

Two settlements came after the network’s former chairman, Roger Ailes, was dismissed last summer in the wake of a sexual harassment scandal, when the company said it did not tolerate behavior that “disrespects women or contributes to an uncomfortable work environment.”

I mean, even ESPN eventually kicked out their repeat sexual harassment offenders...

Since I'm abstaining from posting twitter links

I'll just give you a brief description for your Daily Greenwald...

Long story short, Russians are the true persecuted people in this scandal so he's going full "Russian Lives Matter"

I'll just say that until the American left has an honest-to-God housecleaning, saboteurs, traitors and useful idiots will continue to hold us back

GJGE all you Greens and nonvoters...

MEANWHILE, in Russia...

Russian zoo's raccoon in 'erotic' video dispute

A Moscow zoo is suing a video studio that hired one of its raccoons and made what the zoo calls an "erotic" video. The petting zoo - where children can feed and interact with animals - sometimes rents animals to filmmakers.

Spokesman Viktor Kiryukhin told the BBC the raccoon - Thomas - returned from the studio traumatised. "We noticed he was attracted to women's breasts."

Video firm Art-Msk called the zoo's lawsuit "absurd". They also said the raccoon stole a model's bra on set. Art-Msk shoots video clips for advertisements. Russian media quoted its marketing manager Valery Bogatov as saying they had requested a trained animal, but got Thomas "who was young and ran off all the time".

According to the zoo, the deal in August 2016 was for Thomas to be used in a regular advertisement. But the zoo says that when it saw the footage on social media, featuring a naked model, it complained and asked for all video and photos to be withdrawn. After the request failed, the zoo filed a lawsuit in October, also demanding compensation for damages caused to the raccoon.

MEANWHILE, in Idaho:

Idaho Woman Says She Crashed Into a Deer Because She Saw a Sasquatch

(MOSCOW, Idaho) — A northern Idaho woman told police she crashed into a deer because she was distracted by a sasquatch in her rearview mirror.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports that the 50-year-old Tensed woman was driving south on U.S. Highway 95 on Wednesday when she struck a deer near Potlatch.

The woman told Benewah County Sheriff's officials that she saw a sasquatch chasing a deer on the side of the road while driving. She says she checked one of her mirrors to get a second look at the beast and when she looked up, the deer ran in front of her.

Sheriff's officials marked the incident as a vehicle versus deer collision but did not report any evidence of Bigfoot.

MEANWHILE, in Ohio:

Police called to Ohio Taco Bell to settle dispute over 'Fire' or 'Mild' sauce


TH EUCLID, Ohio - A very saucy situation brought police to a Taco Bell in South Euclid, Ohio on March 12. Employees were concerned when a disgruntled customer held up the drive-thru line because she didn't like the choices of sauce available to her. So, they called the police.

When they arrived, officers saw that the line was backed up by several car lengths, and asked the frustrated Taco Bell customer what the problem was. According to the South Euclid police, she told officers the reason for the holdup was that Taco Bell was out of "Mild" sauce, her preferred condiment, and had only "Fire" sauce on hand.

She was also frustrated that Taco Bell would not give her the meal she ordered at half-price for the inconvenience she was facing. Police advised the woman that this customer service matter "was not likely going to be resolved at the drive-thru window, and suggested she return the next day to speak to a manager."

She left the restaurant.
