Good on Bill O’Reilly – not just for veering away from Fox’s dishonest attempts to make the Prince Andrew sex case about Bill Clinton but for also shooting down those efforts.
I’ve posted twice about the sleazy and sleazier efforts of Fox’s Megyn Kelly, Christ Stirewalt and Sean Hannity to drag Bill Clinton into a sex case that alleged under-aged girls were “lent” to Prince Andrew and legal eagle Alan Dershowitz by a Wall Street high flier, Jeffrey Epstein. Because Clinton was one of many big names Epstein palled around with, Kelly, Hannity and Stirewalt deliberately suggested – without a shred of evidence – that Clinton was somehow involved in the sexcapades. Prince Andrew and Dershowitz have strongly denied the allegations, by the way.
A few nights ago, O'Reilly discussed the case in his "Is it legal" segment. He did not mention Bill Clinton during the segment. So kudos to O’Reilly for not going there. But he went a step further in his mail segment last night. The first email in the segment was from a doctor in Texas who complained O’Reilly had “left Bill Clinton out of the story” about the Prince Andrew case.
O’Reilly shot back:
Oh, that’s just total nonsense, Doctor. Absurd. President Clinton is not named in any lawsuit, Prince Andrew is. We clearly labeled that lawsuit dubious and our legal team explained why. We don’t deal in speculation or innuendo here and you should respect that.
Kelly, Stirewalt and Hannity could take a lesson.

Oh pulleez, gimme a break!
