O'Reilly lawsuit, linked via Cone.

While it reads quickly, here are some appetizing (or unappetizing, depending on your point of view) excerpts in case you don't have time to thumb through all 22 pages:

During dinner in May 2002, O'Reilly, "without provocation or warning,said to plaintiff Andrea Mackris:'And just use your vibrator to blow off steam' When plaintiff reddened, defendent Bill O'Reilly asked lewdly: 'What, you've got a vibrator, don't you? Every girl does.'"

"O'Reilly called plaintiff on her cell phone. Plaintiff was at dinner with a woman friend from college. Defendent was flirtatious, repeatedly asking Plaintiff what she and her friend were wearing."

"On or about September 2003....Defendent once again raised the specter of phone sex, repeatedly professing disbelief that Plaintiff had never engaged in telephone sex. Defendent O'Reilly repeatedly begged Plaintiff to have telephone sex with him that night."

"...O'Reilly bragged that he had telephone sex with other young women."

(Mackris leaves FOX for CNN for a period of time.)

"On or about early April 2004, Defendent Bill O'Reilly left a message on Plaintiff's answering machine at home after her boss at CNN was terminated for sexual harrassment, purportedly to determine if anything untoward was directed toward her."

"....O'Reilly bizarrely rambled further about Al Franken....'(Al Franken's) finished, and he's going to be sorry he ever took Fox News Channel on.'"

(Mackris returns to Fox.)

"During the course of O'Reilly's telephone monologue on August 2, 2004, he suggested (Mackris) purchase a vibrator and name it, and that he had one 'shaped like a cock with a little battery in it' that a woman had given him. It became apparent that Defendent was masturbating as he spoke. After he climaxed, Defendent O'Reilly said to Plaintiff:'I appreciate the fun phone call.'"

(O'Reilly describes pornographic fantasy of him and Mackris on a Caribbean vacation.)

"During the course of (O'Reilly's) sexual rant, it became clear that he was using a vibrator upon himself, and that he ejaculated. Plaintiff was repulsed."
