Special Announcement:
Lawsuits End

From the Thursday, October 28 edition of The O'Reilly Factor on Fox News Channel:
Hi, I'm Bill O'Reilly, thanks for watching us tonight. Before we get to the talking points memo I have something very important to tell you.

All litigation has ceased in that case that has made me the object of media scorn from coast to coast.

Today lawyers issued a statement saying there was no wrongdoing in the case what-so-ever by anyone. Obviously the words "no wrongdoing" are the key.

On a personal note, this matter has caused enormous pain; but I had to protect my family and I did. Some of the media hammered me relentlessly because, as you know, I am a huge target as is FOX News. All I can say to you is please do not believe everything you hear and read.

The good news is that Factor viewers and listeners seem to have given me the benefit of any doubt when some in the media did not. You guys looked out for me and I will never forget it.

This brutal ordeal is now officially over, and I will never speak of it again.
