Bill O’Reilly Hires Bodyguards, May Retire

“Now it’s so bad that I spend an enormous amount of money protecting myself against evil,” declares Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly, who says his enemies have become so vicious that he’s mulling retiring from his top-rated TV show.
Note to O’Reilly’s evil enemies: you’re doing a great job. Please keep up the good work.
He has also hired bodyguards to protect himself.
Ooooh, so that’s what they’re calling it nowadays:
Above: O’Reilly’s bodyguards provide him with extra protection, falafel.
The liberal media establishment is mostly behind the rising tide of hatred because “it can’t marginalize me,” O’Reilly told Newsday’s Verne Gay in a rare interview published Tuesday.
Gay writes: “Almost exactly a year since he settled a sexual harassment lawsuit with former Fox News producer Andrea Mackris, the embattled life of O’Reilly has become an increasingly strange and scary one.”
Wasn’t it strange and scary back when he was soliciting his coworkers for phone sex?
O’Reilly told Newsday that he receives death threats and has to hire bodyguards. He can’t check into hotels with his family. People on the street take his picture with their cell phones and then post it on the Web.
“Who wants to live like that?” he complains.
As a result of the lawsuit settlement, O’Reilly must have a third person present whenever he conducts an interview or speaks to someone on the phone.
“I can’t even strap on my anal beads without some pervert looking on!”
Gay writes: “So little wonder that when Bill O’Reilly is asked about his future after his current contract ends a little more than two years from now, he blurts out one word even as the question is asked: ?Retirement.’”
But then O’Reilly backpedaled somewhat: “I might. I might. There’s only so much aggression you can absorb.”
And we here at Sadly, No! are damn proud to provide it.
