Straight from the Somehow-This-Doesn’t-Come-As-A-Surprise department is word that Fox News Network’s token obnoxious conservative, Bill O’Reilly, has been bitch slapped with a sexual harassment lawsuit by a female Fox News producer. The complaint—captured in all it’s glory by the folks at The Smoking Gun—makes for some interesting reading to say the least:
OCTOBER 13—Hours after Bill O’Reilly accused her of a multimillion dollar shakedown attempt, a female Fox News producer fired back at the TV star today, filing a lawsuit claiming that he subjected her to repeated instances of sexual harassment and spoke often, and explicitly, to her about phone sex, vibrators, threesomes, masturbation, the loss of his virginity, and sexual fantasies. Below you’ll find a copy of Andrea Mackris’s complaint, an incredible page-turner that quotes O’Reilly, 55, on all sorts of lewd matters. Based on the extensive quotations cited in the complaint, it appears a safe bet that Mackris, 33, recorded some of O’Reilly’s more steamy soliloquies. For example, we direct you to his Caribbean shower fantasies. While we suggest reading the entire document, TSG will point you to interesting sections on a Thailand sex show, Al Franken, and the climax of one August 2004 phone conversation. (22 pages)
Fair warning: Some of the allegations are pretty graphic in addition to being highly amusing. Seems Mr. O’Reilly may not be as morally upstanding as he’d like us to think he is. No surprise there, really.
