What ever happened with the Bill O'Reilly sexual harassment incident with the producer (??)? I know it was probably 10+ years ago now but did it ever come out about how much he settled for? The recordings of him telling her how he wanted to take a shower with her and lather her up with soap were as disturbing as they were hilarious.

Ah yes, the famous "falafel" incident.

It never came out how much he settled for. Somewhere between $2-10 million.

If I remember correctly, didn't she buy an expensive place in NYC afterwards?

Couldn't have happened to a better guy
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

I can't remember all the details. I'd forgotten about the falafel comment! LOL

How does a guy like O'Reilly sit there and moralise after something like that? Has to pay out millions for trying to cheat on his wife with a woman who wanted no part of it and he still gets paid a fortune to sit there and pretend to be the moral compass for society. I don't get it.

We've got a similar media guy here in Australia actually - Alan Jones. Very similar background actually - school teacher, allegedly came from nowhere. Was arrested after an "incident" in a public toilet in London 30 years ago but still gets to tell the country what they should and shouldn't be doing. Mind boggling stuff.

Knowing that he's potentially got a lot of power I wouldn't do this unless I had some powerful evidence to use first. I would come in prepared.

I wouldn't want to be in a position where they are going to run the disgruntled employee response into the ground on me.
No one has ever proven I am not God.

Sooo - after all she did to us, she now comes running for our support and protection. Just because her boss is a "man's man", as she would have spun the story while still at Fox.

Here are her best moments:

God, I can't stand Gretchen Carlson. A former
Miss America, she's always looking for even
the hint of sexual harassment. Good riddance
to her, I always hit mute when she came on
anyway. She won't win, it's a ridiculous lawsuit.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

She won't win - because it will be settled out of court.

Just watch.

Creepy Roger Ailes doesn't want his dirty laundry out there for all to see.
