The Threat

In other news, a federal judge has ruled that a lawsuit against Trump for inciting violence can proceed.

Meanwhile, Trump has reportedly amended his "blind trust" so that he can withdraw money from it without telling anyone. My question is, who does he need to pay off?

Finally, yet another former contributor is coming for Fox News and Bill O'Reilly.

Former contributor Wendy Walsh accused O'Reilly in 2013, but over the weekend the New York Times published an account of a series of secret legal settlements, including a settlement with Walsh, that Fox News hid from the public. Fox issued a statement denying the Times report, but that won't save them. A federal grand jury in New York is currently looking at Fox's secret settlements.

    I truly hope trumps obvious conflicts of interest are being legally pursued in some fashion. Several ethics lawyers have come out and said he’s in violation but I’ve not heard or read if anything is actually being done about it.

    Anybody think FNC’s viewers will care even a wit about the fact this self described “culture warrior” and “traditionalist” has harassed women so badly that he and his employer had shell out $13 million in settlements?

    Of course not. The “Family Values” voters never concern themselves with such things if it’s one of their guys.

      Anybody think FNC will bat an eye at continuing to pay out $13 million in settlements while O’Reilly continues to bring in 30 times that much in ad revenues?

        Which makes me even happier to know that Rachel Maddow has beaten O’Reilly in viewership 3 weeks in a row.
