He’s had enough of it

Yes but sexism is over, women have all the rights and freedoms men have now, there is nothing left to object to or campaign for and anyone who thinks otherwise is just playing victim and a horrible tribal SJW and Regressive Leftist. Sexism is over.

Last fall, in the weeks after 21st Century Fox struck settlements with two women who said that Bill O’Reilly had sexually harassed them, the Fox News host went on morning television and offered a harsh assessment of women who had come forward with complaints about the network.

“Look, it’s open season,” he said, visibly irritated, when asked about a recently published book by Megyn Kelly, his colleague at the time. In the book, Ms. Kelly provided an account of being sexually harassed by Roger Ailes, the network’s former chairman. Later Mr. O’Reilly added, “Let’s whack the Fox News Channel. I’ve had enough of it. It’s a good place to work. All right?”

Yes indeed. Who do those bitches think they are, wanting to be treated as colleagues and not pussies there for the grabbing?

The comments set off a media firestorm and frustrated Ms. Kelly, who sent an email to Fox News executives complaining about his behavior and the chilling effect it could have on women at the company and beyond, according to four people with knowledge of the email who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal matters.

What a snowflake. Women just need to lean in and get on with it. You didn’t see Eleanor Roosevelt whining about chilling effects did you?!

So O’Reilly showed her: he went ahead and shouted at the women some more that very night.

Don’t undermine the company that pays you! Go to human resources – or leave! Because hey, it should totally be a secret that Fox is a hostile work environment for women.

That’s part of why she moved to NBC.

Ms. Kelly’s frustrations with Fox News intensified on the morning of Nov. 15, when Mr. O’Reilly appeared on “CBS This Morning” to promote “Give Please a Chance,” his new children’s book about manners. Norah O’Donnell, one of the show’s hosts, asked Mr. O’Reilly about Ms. Kelly’s book, which had been published that day and included sexual harassment accusations against Mr. Ailes. Mr. O’Reilly said he wasn’t “interested.”

“You’re not interested in sexual harassment?” Ms. O’Donnell asked.

“I am not interested in basically litigating something that is finished that makes my network look bad,” Mr. O’Reilly responded.

Shortly after hearing those comments, Ms. Kelly sent her email to Jack Abernethy and Bill Shine, who had recently been named the co-presidents of Fox News. In the email, Ms. Kelly said that Mr. O’Reilly’s comments on “CBS This Morning” were in bad form, according to the people with knowledge of the email who described its contents to The Times.

Ms. Kelly said that a man with Mr. O’Reilly’s history had no business publicly lecturing women inside or outside the company about sexual harassment, the people said. (In a highly publicized 2004 dispute, Mr. O’Reilly had settled sexual harassment allegations made by a young producer for about $9 million.)

Ms. Kelly added in the email that the push for blind loyalty was the reason the network had gotten into the mess with Mr. Ailes. Several people at the network became aware of the email.

Later that day, a producer on Ms. Kelly’s show learned that Mr. O’Reilly planned to revisit the issue during his show’s “Tip of the Day” segment, according to some of the people familiar with the episode. The producer called Mr. Shine, urging him to pull the segment, the people said.

That did not happen.

Bill O’Reilly’s a man. He’s not going to let some bitch tell him what to do.
