By now, you’ve heard that Bill O’Reilly–the top-rated host in cable news–was forced out of his position of 21 years at Fox after it became public that the network repeatedly backed O’Reilly even after the company reached settlements with 5 different women who alleged sexual harassment.
The 67-year-old O’Reilly will receive “a staggering amount” for his golden parachute payout, amounting to tens of millions of dollars. He shall not be weeped for.
O’Reilly, who never prospered from the ‘nice guy’ image that a John Oliver employs, is shockingly, a dick. Theresa McKeown is the director of West coast operations for “Inside Edition” and worked with O’Reilly when he came to the West Coast.
Theresa was on set for O’Reilly’s infamous ‘WE’LL DO IT LIVE!” rant that is definitely worth a watch if you’ve never seen it (YouTube link).
McKeown told Huffington Post what it was like to work with O’Reilly, and it’s almost comical.
“I know that there were women in the office that he would bring to tears, and I never wanted to be that woman, so I would go completely out of my way to triple-check everything so that nothing could go wrong,” said McKeown, who worked with O’Reilly when he came out West from New York City.
McKeown remembers O’Reilly showing up in a limousine to cover the LA riots, and then getting annoyed when people in the community were in his eyeline. “There was such a lack of compassion,” she said. Another time, in San Francisco, he got upset with McKeown because there was a bee flying around his head.
“I was like, ‘I can’t control the bees…’” she said.
Theresa, no where in Bill’s contract does it say that he has to put up with a pestering bee. Fix the problem before he throws a haymaker.[h/t Huffington Post]
