For the past couple days now (see here and here if you need to) Bill O'Reilly has been suggesting that it's really not fair for "feminists" to cover Donald Trump because they have an inherent bias against him due to beauty pageants. Fortunately, one of the unpaid female interns over at Fox was able to wiggle her fannie over to a desk, borrow a man's phone and get Bob Woodward to come in and tell us about it. Transcript via Media Matters, emphasis added:

O'REILLY: Wait, wait. If I'm an editor and I know there is a feminist woman in my newsroom, who is brilliant because I think this woman is an excellent reporter, I don't let her report on a guy like Trump because Trump is the antithesis of that. And so I don't want any margin of error here, there are plenty of reporters who can do the story, do you not see that?

WOODWARD: Yeah, look, I really disagree. There are feminists on the left and the right as you know, and somebody can put their personal feelings and conclusions in their back pocket and keep them there.

Fashion faux pas, Bob! Ladies at Fox News don't generally have back pockets on their mini dresses. Back pockets are uncomfortable when they are crossing their bare thighs on the official Fox News White Sofa of News Analysis.

But both BillO and Woodward have searched YouTube for "Fox News backside" more than once so they would know this.

But seriously, Bill asked this question on his screen, and I think it warrants an answer.

Speaking as an editor here at Crooks and Liars, I would never "let" anyone BUT a feminist to cover a Donald Trump story. Good thing, cuz that's all we got here at C&L, especially if by "feminist" you mean someone to takes for granted that Donald Trump is a tiny fingered, sexually insecure, morally corrupt, and completely sexist douchebag ex-playboy whose real claim to fame and legacy is 'sidekick for Howard Stern in the eighties.' It's actually the official policy of C&L to publish any and all examples of Trump's rabid micro-penis inspired sexism. I would lay down five bucks right now if someone could prove to me that he actually gave any woman in the history of his whole life an orgasm while her eyes were open, or that he cared. That gives him something in common with you, Mr. O'Reilly!

Oh, and thanks for working the 'feminist' refs, Bill. You made this little lady's day.
