There's something about Bill........

Bill is in the news again, more allegations of sexual harassment-no not Cosby- O'Reilly.

FOX has already spent $13,000,000 settling previous allegations against the "news" man but the latest allegations are a bridge too far - even for FOX- that bastion of truth.

It seems that Murdoch who owns FOX who owns O'Reilly is under scrutiny in Europe over a $13 Billion merger and that and the racial aspect of the latest allegations have forced Murdoch to push O'Reilly under the train of public opinion as advertisers started to pull their ads following the revelations.

This latest allegations follows settlements with five other women totaling about $13 million.  That's a lot of money and a hell of a lot of repeated sexual harassment.  Harassment that seemed to be tolerated by the culture at FOX- that is up until today.

So O'Reilly the man who exaggerated his intelligence, honesty and his role in reporting from the "warzone" on mainland Argentina during the Falklands war - some hundreds of miles away from the nearest combat.

O'Reilly's career is over but his legal woes are just beginning.
