Post on O’Reilly

Funny- the day after the Bill O’Reilly sex scandal broke, the New York Post just happened to have a picture handy, and ready for publication, of accuser Andrea Mackris, when no one else did. It couldn’t be because they went right upstairs and grabbed it from the Factor’s offices, could it?

And then, whaddya know- the Post just happens to publish unflattering stories about Mackris every day for ten days- first there were multiple stories about Mackris being kicked out/banned from various bars as the result of altercations, that she had a “crush” on O’Reilly, and that her lawyer had previously filed a “similar” lawsuit on behalf of another client.

Then Thursday came the coup de grace- not only did Page Six report that Mackris is “drowning in debt,” but a two-pages-later report on “Mackris’ CNN Antics,” describes her as “extremely high maintenance,” while accusing her of plotting the lawsuit months in advance, while sharing that she “was once sent home for wearing a bra-less, midriff-baring outfit deemed inappropriate by management.”

You know, if I didn’t know any better I’d think the Post was running interference for the O’Reilly side in order to help a Murdoch brother out. But they wouldn’t do such a thing, would they?
