I think I hoped to live my entire life without the words "Bill O'Reilly" and "sex scandal" appearing together- but they did today, as the Fox News host is being accused of "lewd behavior" by a former underling. I'm sure he's thrilled, to have this happen three weeks before the election with Fox News on an all-time ratings high. According to the Smoking Gun,

he subjected her to repeated instances of sexual harassment and spoke often, and explicitly, to her about phone sex, vibrators, threesomes, masturbation, the loss of his virginity, and sexual fantasies.
Yikes. Isn't this usually the type of stuff Bill wants people to "shut up" about?

O'Reilly, meanwhile, has countersued; to this I recycle the line that got me my one and only Instalanche: ""for someone who bitches all the time about the nefarious influence of 'the trial lawyers,' O'Reilly sure seems to sue people an awful lot."
