Conspiracy Theory 101


Bill O'Reilly is being sued for sexual harrassment. In and of itself, this is not odd. What I find curious is the timeline of his harasser's employment history. For four years, an associate producer worked at Fox News Channel with The O'Reilly factor. Supposedly, that is when the harassment started. She left to take a producer's job at CNN for a time. Then, perplexingly,went back to Fox working for the same program where she allegedly was the "victim" of tacky frat boy humor. So, let me get this straight. She is sexually harassed during time number one at Fox, yet never took any kind of action. (The proof of evidence tape has yet to be produced) She then goes on to the networks chief rival network with a bigger title and a higher salary, then turns around and goes back to the place she wasn't happy with to begin with. Wait a minute. If I got a new job with better working conditions, and more income, I think I would really hesitate to go back to a former employer. What also occurs to me is that this is an election year. And who is trying to keep his job? The Republican President who would find his political leanings mostly aligned with the content at Fox. Hmmm....
