Fox's O'Reilly Sued For Sexual Harassment 

"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." --Bill O'Reilly

United Press International:

Washington, DC, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- A Fox News producer filed a lawsuit in New York Wednesday, charging conservative pundit Bill O'Reilly with sexual harassment.

The filing came just hours after O'Reilly issued a news release accusing the producer of trying to extort money from him.

The complaint, filed by producer Andrea Mackris, said she was a White House intern during 1991 and has worked for NBC, CNN and Fox. The complaint said she has been praised for her "proficiency, dedication and skill" throughout her career.

Mackris said she has worked for O'Reilly as an associate producer since July 6, 2004, in what she described as a "sexually hostile environment."

The complaint includes graphic and detailed descriptions of comments O'Reilly allegedly made to Mackris, including advising her to perform sexual acts.

The complaint was posted on the Web site thesmokinggun.com, which speculated some conversations may have been taped.

The Bible Says Donate To Alan Keyes 

Or so says Alan Keyes in his most recent personal e-mail to me, because we are such good friends and chat all the time:
Scripture tells us, "Where a man's treasure is, there will
his heart be also."

I am asking you to invest your treasure -- and your heart! --
in my race for the U.S. Senate. If you can give the individual
limit of two thousand dollars, please do it TODAY. If you
can give the widow's mite, please do it as soon as possible.
If you can give anything in between, whether fifty, or one
hundred, or two hundred and fifty dollars, please do it now:

Get those widows mites out, my friends.

Not Our President 

Sid's Fishbowl tells us about the Sinclair Broadcasting Group's connections to Bush:

"So a guy who got rich at Enron goes to work for the Bush Administration's Federal Energy Regulatory Commission during the period when they're investigating Enron. He gets an MBA at Harvard, founds a company backed with his Enron stash and some extra seed capital from Sinclair Broadcasting, and uses his connections to get a one-on-one meeting with the President. His company then gets a (presumably no-bid) contract from the Defense Department, thus (presumably) guaranteeing they'll hit their revenue goals this year and (presumably) greasing their skids for the company's planned IPO."

He has many interesting details to share. I like that Sinclair is pretending that a story from 30 years ago, distorted beyond recognition, is somehow news. They say that showing it is no more harmful and political than showing deaths in Iraq. It is very unfortunate that phony news from Bush supporters is getting such bad reviews in the, uh, news.

Luckily, the press are stupid. No one will pick up on the details connecting this ad directly to the Bush campaign, even if bloggers do. There will be millions of people tuning in to see this factual, 90 minute news report on the Vietnam War just in time for the election.

Praise the lord for media consolidation and political favors.
