Bill O’Reilly’s burgeoning sex-harassment scandal at Fox News is feeding the Hoax-Industrial Complex, looping in Bill Cosby.
Within days of The New York Times reporting that O’Reilly and Fox had paid at least $13 million to silence his accusers, satirical sites have joined the Bills at the hip.
At politicalgarbagechute.com, we’re told that Fox News plans a show called ““Bill & The Other Bill” — hosted by Cosby and O’Reilly.
“The show will focus on ‘women and womanly things,’ according to a press release. Fox News execs are hopeful that pairing the two will bring ‘excitement and a certain buzz’ to the news network,” the site says.
The spoof gets sillier: “‘In all of America,’ O’Reilly said, “have there ever been two men who are more clearly equipped to discuss what women want, even when they clearly don’t want it and need a little, coaxing?’”
At hillarybeattrump.org, we hear: “In a rare interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Cosby critiqued the newscaster’s pattern of sexually harassing female employees, calling his predation technique ‘amateur hour.’”
Cosby supposedly said that if O’Reilly were serious about assaulting women, “he would have offered them drinks.”
The prank site quoted Cosby as saying of O’Reilly: “He’s a misunderstood romantic. Just like Dov Charney, Clarence Thomas, Roger Ailes, Julian Assange, and failed presidential candidate Donald Trump, he’s a sensitive man who’s being victimized by victims.”
Social media couldn’t resist either.
Bill O'Reilly and Bill Cosby walk into a bar. Everyone immediately covers their drinks in fear.
