Happy Bill O'Reilly Loofah Day!
Gawker ^ | Oct. 23, 2009

Posted on 10/23/2009 6:43:16 AM PDT by COUNTrecount

Five years ago today, a luminous young producer at Fox News named Andrea Mackris enriched all of our lives just a little bit by suing a lecherous fathead named Bill O'Reilly for trying to rub falafel on her private parts.

The good people at The Smoking Gun are revisiting Mackris' sexual harrassment complaint against O'Reilly, just for kicks, and we recommend you do, too—it's got everything!

[T]the Fox News Channel host was named in a sexual harassment lawsuit brimming with lurid details about vibrators, phone sex, threesomes, masturbation, Caribbean shower fantasies, a Thai sex show, falafel, stewardess trysts, vehicular coupling, and Al Franken.

Everyone celebrates Loofah Day in their own way, but we like to pull out the sacred text and read aloud from its most memorable and moving passage—a transcript of O'Reilly's late-night 2004 monologue to Mackris, delivered during the Republican National Convention, while he was watching a porno:

Perverts like O’Really and Newt disgust me. Why? They have no integrity, yet claim to be decent or conservative. Don’t sully our doorstep, you weasels.

Guess that explains why O’Reilly hasn’t gone after Letterman, they’re two peas in a pod.

Many of us did not know this stuff about BOR..and we grow frustrated with him for many reasons not the least of which is his seeming appeasement of The Dear Leader, I suspect so he can get him on his Factor show. As much as I really don't like BOR and call him a gasbag, I do like some of the guests he has on his show...so I watch though I threaten not to do so. He is beyond pompous..but we really don't need to go digging up crap about him and the smear on FOX, not at this time when this station is the only one trying to get to the truth of this miserable administration and trying to “wake America up”.

I am no fan of O’Reilly, he is a complete sellout. But frankly, I wonder how well you personally would fare if some of your personal life was under a similar spotlight. Let’s run some of your most embarrassing screwups up the flag pole and do a side-by-side comparison with O’Reilly issue here.

Bill OReilly’s is politically skewed to the loudmouth.

He has no core beliefs and argues for the sake of hearing his own voice...through serendipity he has been, on occasion, a voice for good....like when he reams people like Barney Frankfutter....(and Barney likes to be reamed anyway).

I watched him scream at Frank once and none of his argument was cogent...but it was great to hear someone yell at the faggot anyway.

I always new BOR was a Jerk. BOR and shep Smith should team up and start a new show at 3:00am when everyone is sleeping.

Oh geez, come on. He's a total creep. And besides, his show has been going downhill for a while now, he's as phony as a 3 dollar Bill.

The only memorable thing about this story is that the skank set him up so she and her Left-wing buddies could destroy him. It didn't work.

People forget that 5 years ago BOR was the Democrat's most hated and targeted foe. A fact made more ironic since conservatives can't stand him. But media hacks don't even mention him anymore because Sarah Palin, Hannity and Beck have made their heads explode into their arugala salads.

I am not a public person and don’t have a nightly audience of over three million people who tune in to get opinion forming information from me.

I did not cause my employers to have to make a multi- million dollar pay off due to my illegal behavior.

I can never be blackmailed because I acted irresponsibly.

I don’t catergorize sexual harassment as “a screwup”.

I respect my family members and would never embarass them.

I don’t like falafel.

Should I go on or do you get my point?

What difference does any of your reply make in response to my point? Also, why is there never any scrutiny of the women’s behavior in situations like this, all that she engaged in during the lead up to her ‘suddenly’ deciding that she was being ‘harrassed’. What a joke. She was probably just another gold-digging slut who set the thing up for a while, but you buy what she says sight unseen.

I have huge contempt for O’Reilly, because he’s a phony. He secured a large audience by promoting common sense conservatism, and then he sold his audience and the country down the river in an attempt to get a little larger audience, by moving left. So screw him. But this other stuff is bs. And screw that slut who filed this suit. She is not blameless.

Not every man is an arrogant, self-obsessed, blowhard with a God complex, but enough of them are to keep tabloids and political dirty tricksters in business for the next hundred years.

“The good people at The Smoking Gun are revisiting Mackris’ sexual harrassment complaint against O’Reilly, just for kicks, and we recommend you do, too—it’s got everything!”

Okay first off - I’m really amazed that BOR gets a bad rap on Freerepublic - he’s one of he very few people who has the balls to stand up to the loony left idiots parading themselves around as Americans...and not only that, look at what he’s done as far as child advocacy...I think Freepers should lighten up.

And as far as theses allegations, has this ever been proven in a court of law? Or are these just allegations (which - mind you - anyone can make up).

Mistakes are one thing, harrassing a subordinate with filthy phone calls are a deliberate evil act. This is a married man! Who writes BOOKS FOR KIDS!

Did the gal duct tape his hand to the phone and force him (A MARRIED MAN) to call her, and say the disgusting things to her? This is a SUBORDINATE. What was it, she used hypnosis or mind-control drugs? Honestly, he is completely responsible for his own behavior, and I find it both funny and sad that you are trying to get him off the hook.

This never got to court. Fox chose to pay millions to make this go away.

“This never got to court. Fox chose to pay millions to make this go away.”

So how do we know what allegations (if any) are true then?

Yes, I read it...there’s nothing concrete in that complaint...just complaints. Again, anyone can make allegations..

Did you know that BOR had filed an extortion complaint against her?

I also found this:

” XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX THU OCT 21, 2004 17:23:09 ET XXXXX O’REILLY ACCUSER DEEP IN DEBT **Exclusive** The DRUDGE REPORT has obtained O’Reilly accuser Andrea Mackris’ financial records which show a combined debt of nearly $100,000!”

Motive to sue someone maybe?

I'm amazed that people as dense as you are continue to exist. Take off the kneepads.

I'm not going to call Bill O'Reilly a liar... yet, but...

Hey O'Reilly! Stuff a sock in it you bloviating windbag!

Harassing an underling? So you were there, you know how this all played out? Yeah right, the poor, innocent girl in the office, having to put up with such behavior. Actually, a gold-digging slut who planned the whole thing and O’Reilly was too dim to recognize it.
