I thought he was going to fight this to the bitter end? "There comes a time when you have to take a stand!"
O'Reilly's big mouth blew this story wide open anyway, because Mackris didn't want to go public in the first place. He wanted to intimidate Andrea Mackris and her lawyer and in doing so, probably paid more than he had to. He thought if he made a pre-emptive lawsuit, they would wilt. Guess again.
Also, any mention about trial lawyers corrupting America by any republican hack should be thoroughly flogged. Didn't Bush use trial lawyers to steal the 2000 election? Didn't O'Reilly use a trial lawyer to save his bacon?

Sources told the Daily News that O'Reilly will have to pay Andrea Mackris at least $2 million - and possibly as much as $10 million.
Under the deal, Mackris will drop the sexual harassment suit she filed against the talk-show host and Fox.
O'Reilly and his Fox bosses, in turn, will forget about the extortion suit they filed against Mackris and her lawyer.
