Why Isn't The Media Dragging Bill O'Reilly As They Did Bill Cosby For Sexual Allegations

In the wake of the allegations of sexual assault by Bill Cosby, a plethora of organizations cut ties with him, previously awarded honors and titles were rescinded, Reruns of The Cosby Show and other shows featuring Cosby were pulled from the air, and 25 colleges and universities revoked his honorary degrees. Keep in mind, that most active lawsuits against Cosby are on hold pending the results of his criminal trial slated for on or around June 5, 2017. I bring this all up to compare to Bill O’Reilly, who is now in a very similar situation to Cosby, yet still retains his job at Trump State TV (Fox News).

A New York Times investigation published Saturday has revealed payments of about $13 million to five women accusing Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment, inappropriate behavior, or verbal abuse. How is it that O’Reilly has not suffered the same standard of treatment as Bill Cosby? It is perhaps because “The O’Reilly Factor” draws nearly 4 million viewers nightly?
Lisa Bloom is a lawyer for one of the women O’Reilly settled a sexual harassment lawsuit with that was in the millions of dollars. She is calling out this obvious difference in treatment and consequences between O’Reilly and Cosby.

“How many women have to come forward?” Bloom asked and said, “How many millions of dollars have to get paid before Fox News takes sexual harassment seriously? In my opinion, this network is the Bill Cosby of corporate America. Women over and over again are driven out.”
We think O’Reilly should lose his show and face the same treatment that Cosby has. And to make it clear, we are not defending Cosby at all, we are merely pointing out that his criminal case is pending and that his situation is similar to O’Reilly’s, yet O’Reilly has escaped the same consequences Cosby has.

    Two things, O’Reilly is affiliated with Trump and Mr. Cosby is an African American male. The media preys on “Blacks” in a different context than the Caucasian. Seemingly saying “crimes are only committed by Blacks,” while with Caucasians the story is “why are they always trying to degrade good people.”

    Also O’reilly wasn’t trying to buy the TV company. That’s the only reason that they crucified Bill Cosby.

    Also, O’Reilly didn’t RAPE anyone. Am I the only person that can see this? O’Reilly is a scumbag, but there IS a difference.

    I think it might be a little premature to say they are being treated differently. Cosby’s assaults aren’t new news. He got a pass from the media for decades. It’s also difficult to compare the two because to my knowledge there aren’t a whole lot of details on what o’reilly did. Where as several women have reported similar stories about experiences with Cosby and being drugged and raped. I definitely don’t think O’Reilly is off the hook just yet and I won’t shed any tears for him.

    Margaret Lord Amaze-balls!! A lesson in twisting the narrative so that of three, highly visible, alleged male sex offenders and harassers the most egregious becomes the biggest victim. Nothing about a culture of exploitation and intimidation based upon the dehumanization of women. Let me assure the author of this nonsense that sexual assault of women knows no creed, race, or religion. Nor does it recognize age, class, education, or income. You can enter a room of a thousand women and I will assure you that any one of them who has lived, worked, used public transportation, attended a public venue or event, or in any way crossed paths with a man, that each and every one of them will have at least one story of sexual assault, harassment, or unwanted attention. Did you notice the millions of women of all ages, races, religions, and cultures who took to the streets on the day after the inauguration? The ignorance you display is at least part of the reason they were there. There is no shortage of examples of racism in our culture. This is one of the rare instances that is not about you – a man. It is not about an African American man. It is not about a celebrity. It is not about a multi-millionaire. It is about the victims of multiple sexual assaults, and in this case it is about the survivors of rape. Get over yourself. Hold your gender accountable!
