Quick Takes

* Fox News — In a surprising turn of events, Fox News parted ways with King of Cable Television, Bill O’Reilly. The on-air personality was easily the highest rated star, but was let go after new allegations of sexual harassment emerged. It was also made known that Fox had paid in the neighborhood of $13 Million over the years to settle other such claims against Mr. O’Reilly.
* Mr. Pence Does Not Want to Be Mr. O’Reilly – Just a week before the O’Reilly outrage (how DARE he behave inappropriately!), Vice President Mike Pence was being lampooned as a knuckle-dragging Neanderthal for having certain “rules” about his interactions with female co-workers. Sometimes called the “Billy Graham Rule,” Mr. Pence does not have dinner with female colleagues or go to parties that include alcohol without Mrs. Pence. Liberals everywhere were dumbstruck by these Puritanical notions. Guys, what do we think?
* Rubio Hypocrisy?
