    Since Richard is the only one here that has met me in person, he is in a better position to judge. If I were you I would trust his judgement. :grin:

    Actually, it's not hearsay.

    She has provided a first person account of what happened. From Webster's: Hearsay is evidence based not on a witness's personal knowledge but on another's statement not made under oath.

    So if I were to say, she claims O'Reilly told her to date younger men....That is hearsay.

    According to post #15 there is reason to believe that at least some of it is on tape. That poster says that is implied. I did not read it and I am not sure if it was implied or only inferred. But a reasonable man seems to think it may be taped after he read the lawsuit.

    We do not always see eye to eye but he seesm to use reason to reach his statements. He may view the process in somewaht more balack and white terms than I do but that may say something about lawyers and negotiators.

    Cut it out you guys! This is getting really irritating.

    I'd like to add "pompous" and "blowhard" to your description though, and "maniacal" should have the prefex "megalo-".:grin:

    And what may be even more embarrassing for Fox is O'Reilly's descriptions of some of his higher-ups, including Roger Ailes, whom he paints in terms more fit for a mafia hitman then media executive. It's a sideshow, but it will be interesting to see how Bill no-spins this one

    I can't even keep up with these right wing hypocrites anymore. After Newt Gingrich, William Bennnet, Rudolph Giuliani, Rush, and now 'O'Really', how can anyone still believe that family values garbage?

    At least I don't remember WJC preaching to me about morality.

    Now even if it was Tape recorded it could be edited. I mean really, forcing someone to have phone sex ? I mean c'mon. Why in the hell did she come back and tell everyone she enjoyed being back? Why did she not tell any higher ups or some law enforcement agency about the problem but instead went to lawyer first? I wouldn't doubt that O'Reilly got pissed and probably left some threatning message on her voice mail after the fact. He seems to have a temper. He Probably told her where to "stick it".

    I have read O'Reilly and Fox's extortion complaint and they mention that that the defendant told them she has tape recordings of phone conversations. She and her lawyers said they could settle this for $60 million, a ridiculously high sum; however, they wouldn't provide copies of the tapes to O'Reilly. They only gave them excerpted quotes from them.

    Of course, if you are O'Reilly and you believe you're innocent, you fight this and consider this blackmail. If O'Reilly's case is given the green light to proceed by the Supreme Court of NY, then the judges will force her to turn over copies of the tape to the plaintiff in due time.

    It's all a big mistake. The woman didn't realize she had reached O'Reilly's voicemail menu.
    I called O'Reilly's private number and here's what I heard...

    "Hi, this is O'Reilly. You've reached the 'No Spin Zone' I'm on the trail of a hot chick, er, story,
    so pick one of the following menu options - and make it short, I'm a very busy man.

    To compliment me and my show, press "1".
    To leave a hot chick, er, tip, press "2".
    For advice on how to use your vibrator, press "3".
    For a free catalog of marital aids, press "4".
    To receive a discount on the purchase of marital aids, mention my name and code 694U.
    To talk dirty to me, press "5", then "Pound" repeatedly.
    To participate in an official O'Reilly orgy, press "Star", then enter the number of people.
    To hear how I lost my virginity, press "6".
    To hear how priests and nuns tied me up and sexually abused me until I was 29, press "7".
    To talk to my agent, publicist, attorney or personal masseuse, press "8".
    To tell me your hot fantasy, press "9" and speak slowly and in a husky voice.
    To complain about me, hang up and call someone who cares.

    To listen to this menu again, press "0" and this time pay attention, for crissake!"

    There's grandstanding and there is due process. Right now, there seems to be a lot of grandstanding going on. The tapes have to be made available and evaluated because steveo70 is correct, it is quite possible to edit/doctor the tapes. Also a single statement out of context could sound quite bad - but be quite harmless in context. $60M is ridiculous, and smells of extortion. But unfortunately its not that uncommon. There has been a whole host of frivilous law suits and most of them get settled out of court because although the accused party is innocent, it still costs tens of thousands (probably more for a celebrity) of dollars to defend against it, its a distraction on your time, and some courts are just populated by idiots/nut-cases. For example, if someone can win a judgement against McD because they bought hot coffee, accidently spilled it on themselves - well common sence no longer applies in the civil court system.

    How could a 60M settlement ever be kept secret?

    Chris when you talk about the NY Supreme Court and it's judges I think you labor unsdera common misconception. I a m not sure that there are multiple judges on that court. The NY Supreme Court is not the highest court there. It is in fact the lowest level. The Court of Appeals is the highest.


    I have never been able to figure that out. So if you are skeptical I understand. It makes little sense to me. But I am sure that the citizens of the Empire State have a good reason for using the term as they do.

    In any event let the courts decide. I ahte these things.

    It doesn't much sound like his style. But then again, I suppose anything is possible.

    Thanks for the information. I am sure it is as you say it is. I agree with you. That's quite an odd appelate system.

    In Ohio, however, complaints against lawyers are filed with the Ohio Supreme Court. The Ohio Supreme Court is the body that disciplines lawyers. I thought the same may have been true in New York, since the extortion suit names the woman's lawyers as defendants.
