Who's Looking To Destroy You?

While it's fun to make fun of O'Reilly's purported use of sex toys (if he sues to keep Mackris from disposing of the tapes, can she subpoena the vibe?) and lame "seduction" rap, it should be remembered that the allegations against him describe a mysogynistic thug:

Mackris alleged in the suit that when she told O'Reilly in April that he had engaged in similar conduct with other staffers and should be careful, he replied: "If any woman ever breathed a word I'll make her pay so dearly that she'll wish she'd never been born. . . . It'd be her word against mine and who are they going to believe? Me or some unstable woman making outrageous accusations. They'd see her as some psycho, someone unstable."

That doesn't mean he shouldn't be subjected to ridicule, just that he should be subject to both ridicule and condemnation and legal sanctions if the threat allegations prove true.

As they say: Let's go to the tape.
