Bill O'Reilly: not exactly a feminist.

On February 28th, Bill O'Reilly's radio show, which is played throughout the nation, tackled feminism and equality when he had Lis Wiehl (Author of "The 51% Minority: How Women are Still Not Equal and What You Can Do About it") on his show.

He said that women at ABC and CBS News had received preferential treatment because "[t]hey had a little cabal; and they intimidated the men in the organization and said, 'If you look at me cross-eyed, I'm gonna bring you up to Human Resources and destroy your life.' " He went on to say, "every man in the place was terrified of them." and, "in a lot of places, women have formed cabals to terrorize the men because they take advantage of, 'Oh, we're downtrodden. You're kicking us in the teeth.' "
He's referring here to women's advocacy for rules to put an end to sexual harassment in the workplace.

In 2004, his former producer, Andrea Mackris, brought a lawsuit against him for sexual harassment.
