O'Reilly settles sex harrassment claim

"Citing a desire to shield his loved ones (sure), Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly said he had settled a legal battle over a former producer's allegations that he sexually harrassed her.

"This brutal ordeal is now officially over, and I will never speak of it again," O'Reilly, 55, said on Thursday night's edition of his talk show, "The O'Reilly Factor."

Of course he won't -- unless he wants Makris's attorneys' to release the audio tapes!

Andrea Mackris, 33, a former producer on "Factor," had filed a lawsuit against O'Reilly on Oct. 13, alleging he made a series of explicit phone calls to her, advised her to use a vibrator and told her about sexual fantasies involving her.

Several days after filing her sexual harassment suit, Mackris filed amended court papers, claiming that Fox had violated her rights under New York state law by firing her after she complained about being sexually harassed. Fox denied Mackris had been fired, saying she had simply stopped coming to work. (sure she wasn't fired)

Hush money paid! So much for the no spin zone from big Bill

US Soldiers took photos of Missing Al-QaQaa Explosives





So much for all those counter arguments!

EYEWITNESS NEWS video may be linked to missing explosives in Iraq

A 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS crew in Iraq shortly after the fall of Saddam Hussein was in the area where tons of explosives disappeared, and may have videotaped some of those weapons.

The missing explosives are now an issue in the presidential debate. Democratic candidate John Kerry is accusing President Bush of not securing the site they allegedly disappeared from. President Bush says no one knows if the ammunition was taken before or after the fall of Baghdad on April 9, 2003 when coalition troops moved in to the area.

Using GPS technology and talking with members of the 101st Airborne Division, 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS has determined the crew embedded with the troops may have been on the southern edge of the Al Qaqaa installation, where the ammunition disappeared. The news crew was based just south of Al Qaqaa, and drove two or three miles north of there with soldiers on April 18, 2003.

During that trip, members of the 101st Airborne Division showed the 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS news crew bunker after bunker of material labelled "explosives." Usually it took just the snap of a bolt cutter to get into the bunkers and see the material identified by the 101st as detonation cords.


more photos:




"We can stick it in those and make some good bombs." a soldier told our crew.
There were what appeared to be fuses for bombs. They also found bags of material men from the 101st couldn't identify, but box after box was clearly marked "explosive."

In one bunker, there were boxes marked with the name "Al Qaqaa", the munitions plant where tons of explosives allegedly went missing.

Once the doors to the bunkers were opened, they weren't secured. They were left open when the 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS crew and the military went back to their base.

"We weren't quite sure what were looking at, but we saw so much of it and it didn't appear that this was being secured in any way," said photojournalist Joe Caffrey. "It was several miles away from where military people were staying in their tents".

Officers with the 101st Airborne told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that the bunkers were within the U.S. military perimeter and protected. But Caffrey and former 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Reporter Dean Staley, who spent three months together in Iraq, said Iraqis were coming and going freely.

"At one point there was a group of Iraqis driving around in a pick-up truck,"Staley said. "Three or four guys we kept an eye on, worried they might come near us."

On Wednesday, 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS e-mailed still images of the footage taken at the site to experts in Washington to see if the items captured on tape are the same kind of high explosives that went missing in Al Qaqaa. Those experts could not make that determination.

The footage is now in the hands of security experts to see if it is indeed the explosives in question.

What will the liberal media do next?

There's an hysterical "correction" in the WSJ:

"Corrections & Amplifications"
News Corp.'s Fox News was incorrectly described in this article as being sympathetic to the Bush cause.
Here's the "un" - corrected para:
"Mr. Bush believes the key to victory lies in his party's conservative core. He gave a rare interview over the weekend to Fox News, a network sympathetic to the Bush cause and popular with Republicans. Among other things, Mr. Bush voiced doubts about whether the country can be fully protected from future terror attacks. "Whether or not we can be ever fully safe is up -- you know, up in the air," he said."
(emphasis added)

hahahahaha -- whew! Now THATS amusing. Man, what will the liberal media do next ?

Congrats! You're An Asshole


Urban life is fraught with daily challenges. We're beset on all sides -- by thoughtless co-workers, oblivious roommates, and even regular strangers on the street -- with the flagrant flouting of the simple rules that govern mundane transactions in society. One such rule, however, is that we don't confront those who transgress against the social order -- and that's a rule Glarkware feels was made to be broken.

Now you can confront those who wrong you, in a way that won't result in your getting your ass beat up. Let the Urban Asshole cards do the talking for you, and put urban assholes in their place.

Each card is scored but not folded so you can present them as is or fold them up so that the recipient only sees "Congrats!" before they get "You're An Asshole" and the hard truth on the other side.

Back of the card reads:

Congrats, Youre An Asshole

Assholes rarely know why they are the way they are, so heres a clue for you on your journey of self-improvement:

Double parking

Parking in handicap space

Leaving dog in car

Not shovelling sidewalk

Creating your own parking space

Talking really loudly on cell phone while riding public transportation

Being a loud inconsiderate neighbour

Cutting in line

You get the idea . . .
