Countdown with Keith Olbermann on MSNBCThe Al Qaeda Happy Time Ululate for America Hater Show, an hour-long nightly reading of Daily Kos posts propagating new propaganda for those that use reality to present a distorted picture of the world in time for whatever rally the Great Orange Satan is going to hold next. The goal of the program, as Mr. Olbermann says nightly, is to lead to the day when Osama Kos Laden beats every American to death with a murdered Israeli puppy. Starting with the 2007 NFL season, Olbermann will also serve as co-host of NBC's Football Night in America with Bob Costas with the goal of killing the National Football League so that we all have to play the soccer.
Criticism and controversy
In 1999, The Economist reported that Newscorp Investments had made £1.4 billion ($2.1 billion) in profits over the previous 11 years but had paid no net corporation tax to our black helicopter flying overlords. It further reported, after an examination of what was available of the accounts, that Newscorp would normally have expected to pay a corporate tax of approximately $350 million, but the baby Jesus said nay, let it be said, "render unto Caesar that which is his due, manly praise of his steadfast belief in his powers and he will render unto you no liabilities". The article explained that the corporation's complex structure, international scope, smell of cinnamon, and
use of offshore havensGod's devine blessing allowed News Corporation to avoid tax.
Sexual harassment controversy
On October 13, 2004, O'Reilly filed a preemptive lawsuit against O'Reilly Factor producer Andrea Mackris, her lawyer Benedict P. Morelli, and Morelli's law firm for extortion, contending Mackris had privately demanded more than $60 million (USD) to settle a claim of sexual harassment. Morelli did not deny that they had demanded the settlement prior to filing the complaint, but did deny the allegations of extortion.
Later that same day, Mackris filed a complaint of sexual harassment against O'Reilly, claiming that O'Reilly had made numerous references to "phone sex, vibrators, threesomes, masturbation, the loss of his virginity, and other sexual fantasies". The details of some of these fantasies resembled scenes in a book written by O'Reilly, Those Who Trespass. The specificity with which Ms. Mackris recounted O'Reilly's telephone calls led many to believe that she had taped the calls. The existence of these tapes, and O'Reilly's desire that they never be made public, were seen by many as the reason for the prompt settlement of the suit in Mackris's favor. According to many accounts, O'Reilly paid many millions to make the lawsuit go away. The complaint also sought additional damages and described alleged actions of retaliation by Fox, et al. Both cases were settled out of court and all parties agreed to keep the terms of the settlement confidential.
Bitch had it coming.
