    I thought these threads weren't moderated? Unless you are stating "back on topic" as just a member that's annoyed and not a moderator?

    Yes I know she is a moderator. I was being kind of smart alecky because the sticky at the top of the forum states that Politivent topics are NOT moderated. And she appeared to be "moderating" so I was teasing.

    From the Politvent intro page---

    That stated, we have developed a limited set of ground rules, which apply exclusively to POLITIVENT, separate and apart from every other area of Websleuths.

    GROUND RULES AND GUIDELINES

    • Post at your own risk. When you present an opinion, expect opposition, and be prepared to answer questions, and defend your view. That comes with the territory. As stated above, mods will not answer alerts to settle squabbles and bickering. If you have a serious concern or questions about the forum, you can
    address them in a private message or email (politivent@gmail.com), to Tricia and/or Bessie.
    • Absolutely NO name calling and attacking other members will be allowed. This offense will earn you an automatic 72 hour (or longer) Time Out. For example: “You must be out of your mind”;
    “What an idiotic idea.”; “You’re a moron/dimwit/imbecile.”
    • Absolutely NO outlandish conspiracy theories will be allowed.
    • Sources – As usual, mainstream media (MSM) sources and official press releases take priority over all other sources.
    • Most blogs are allowed as sources, for example, Breitbart, Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, Washington Post, etc. As of now, we don’t have an established list of approved blogs, but as we progress, expect to see some blogs banned.
    • Where applicable, please use this date format at the beginning of thread titles: year.mo.day.
    Ex. 2017.04.18 (date of event, not the date you start the thread). This will provide a chronology, and aid in finding specific topics, by using the sort feature at the bottom of each thread page.
    Since the emphasis is on events, this shouldn’t present a problem.
    • As always, the three most basic “rules” should be observed here, and throughout the board: courtesy, respect, and common sense.
    • The above is subject to change at any time.

    I haven't seen anything on this thread but I thought it was worth reminding us all. I probably shouldn't have quoted you in the post. I didn't mean to imply you didn't know the rules or anything of the sort.

    I think it was what he DID, not what he said, that lost him his job. There seems to be no shortage of female fellow workers who have accused him of inappropriate behavior. Some even left Fox. Fox couldn't keep covering his a** and paying off those lawsuits. Once the news broke, they couldn't defend him publicly, as much as they tried to sweep it under the rug.

    I believe most celebrities are at risk of false accusations, but BoR had too many to dismiss as false accusations. Where there's lots and lots of smoke, well, there's likely fire.

    Now Clinton's a whole other topic and definitely no angel....don't get me going. But, this thread is about BoR, not Clinton. Diversion doesn't get BoR off the hook for his inappropriate behavior to so many female colleagues. If it happened at my company he would be out on his a**. Why shouldn't he be out of his company?
    Any man's death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in mankind,
    Therefore, send not to know, for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee.

    While my opinion of this (BoR situation) is still unsettled, it is not only very common for males (particularly conservative males) to be accused of sexual impropriety and it is also common to have said claims paid off to sweep it under the rug so to speak, where there is smoke there is often fire, there's a lot of smoke here.

    That said, see Glenn Beck who wanted to go all the way to trial if need be and was pushed by his attorneys and the actual insurance company to just settle because it was actually cheaper, see Sean Hannity in his current situation where he was accused and decided to hire a bunch of super attorneys to file libel charges and suddenly the "victim" changes her accusation.

    I don't know if BoR was involved in any actual serious sexual harassment or abuse of any kind (as opposed to Roger Ailes who I'm pretty sure was) but I am sure that there is a culture of political witch hunting going on targeting conservatives that is not equally disbursed to the left.
