Default Sexual Harassment.

the latest from the Bill O'Reilly files:

New Bill O'Reilly Accuser Says He Called Her "Hot Chocolate" and Leered | Hollywood Reporter

Quote:
Another woman is telling Fox News her story of harassment at the hands of O'Reilly, according to attorney Lisa Bloom.
Bill O'Reilly used to leer at an African-American Fox News clerical worker and called her "hot chocolate," according to attorney Lisa Bloom, who helped the woman report the harassment to the network's hotline.

The woman worked for a different broadcaster in 2008 while this was going on, but The O'Reilly Factor host's office was near her desk, the attorney claims.

"He would never talk to her, not even hello, except to grunt at her like a wild boar," Bloom tells The Hollywood Reporter. "He would leer at her. He would always do this when no one else was around and she was scared."

Bloom says she spoke with three witnesses who knew the woman at the time and confirmed she was upset and stressed at the end of each workday. "She’s not asking for any money," says Bloom. "She just wants them to know her story."

At the time, Bloom says the woman valued her job too much to risk speaking up.

"She was afraid if she told him to knock it off she’d get fired," Bloom says. "Now that’s she's aware this is all in the news, she’s decided to phone in a complaint to the Fox News hotline."

Bloom is also representing radio personality Wendy Walsh, who says she was forced out of the network after refusing O'Reilly's advances.

An April 1 New York Times story revealed explosive allegations against O'Reilly, including that during his tenure at the network at least five women have been paid off to keep silent about harassment. In the story, Fox said in a statement that "no current or former Fox News employee ever took advantage of the 21st Century Fox hotline to raise a concern about Bill O’Reilly."

So far at least this woman and Walsh have taken advantage of the line — and, soon, another woman is also expected to call and report harassment by the anchor, according to Bloom.

The allegations against O'Reilly follow a flurry of litigation and press involving women who say they were harassed by and-or retaliated against by ousted-CEO Roger Ailes. Gretchen Carlson was the first to sue last summer, and several other women have filed litigation since. Ailes was terminated shortly after Megyn Kelly spoke with Fox investigators about her experience, which she details in her book.

Earlier this month, Bloom sent a letter to the New York State Division of Human Rights asking it to intervene at Fox News and calling the network a "cesspool of sexual harassment, intimidation and retaliation."

O'Reilly said on his April 11 show that he was taking a pre-planned vacation until April 24.
so not saying "hello", "grunting", and "leering" are out.

um, maybe he was busy, didn't have time to say "hello", maybe he was deep in thought, and so it sounded like "grunting", and maybe she had on a nice dress, and he merely looked at her.

not much of a case, but as long as Fox is passing out checks, may as well get in line and see what the offer is.

Bill's an ass, period. And he does not help himself by being a dick. The NYT want's to burn him at the stake so bad, that they can't even be considered a reliable news source anymore. Also the liberal media can't take down Fox for content, so now they are going after contributors and making ad hominem attacks. (Well, they've been doing that for some time now.)
Anyway, one or two complaints can be chalked up to malcontent's or opportunists. But If Bill starts getting more, legit or not, he's going to have a hard go of it.

the problem is no one, apart from the people involved, know what happened.

to sit on your rights for many years, and then to come forward with some half assed complaint, with no witnesses or other evidence, is just smearing someone for money.

hell, i could make up a story, find folks who think i'm truthful, and file a complaint too.

"she always assigned me the worst jobs, made me travel the most of anyone, purred suggestively at me when she gave me my work, dressed in revealing clothes to try to distract me, and then laughed when i suggested lunch one day."

see, that's pretty easy. is it true? not a word. but it's now a "he said/she said", so may as roll the dice and see what happens. beats serving tables and typing.

If you're afraid of someone looking at you, then perhaps you're the problem. Since when did leering become a crime?

I agree. But Bill doesn't help himself with his character and demeanor; on air and off. And that alone can get him put off the air, even without any charges being brought against him. That will be a victory for the liberal MSM. Bill's already got major advertisers on hold or pulling out altogether.
The New York Times is drawing blood on this one. And the rest are circling.
Bill has a hard fight ahead of him.

one man's glance is another's woman's leer apparently.

and if you are tall, you are always looking down at others. including shorter women who favor low cut tops.

It's just the end-game of identity PC politics. Get so many tools into place that it's easy to use Current Year Rules to take down whoever you want. They get bolder every single scalp they get. Enjoy.

He's got a fall-back career in rap.

and yet when Bubba gets caught blue handed, he's just dismissed as a 'good old boy', and what he did didn't affect his job performance, so get over it and vote for HER.



one piece of advice: if someone is harassing you, create a record. record with your phone. tell a friend or 3. write it down. don't sit on your rights for years.

I'm sure something can be arranged. For a fee.

When I was being prepped for a medical procedure, they went through a list of questions they are required to ask. One was "When you go home today do you have any fear of sexual harassment or violence?" I replied "No, unfortunately." My wife, who was sitting there, was not amused. The Nurse couldn't stop laughing.

Remember when flirting was fun, and you could hit on co-workers and get drunk and make a pass or an inappropriate comment and then life just went on? Good times.

My wife works at the hospital where I had my shoulder surgery back in '13. When they asked that question I laughed out loud.

Mary is 5'4" on her toes and 130 lbs soaking wet and I'm close to 6' and 220 lbs

The nurse ( who knows my wife ) chuckled and said " I had to ask"

I went to a sexual harassment training course.

Pfft, I already knew all that.

I'll tell you what, if he called her hot chocolate, he should do time. That is truly horrific. How in the hell could a human stoop so low.
