Cat Got His Tongue

[insert falafel joke here]

Blessed be the event that shuts up Bill O'Reilly. 1 minute. 1 hour. 1 day. Whatever. Just shut him the hell up already.

Even if it takes a cool sixty million:
Fox News Channel's star host Bill O'Reilly has canceled a series of TV interviews to promote his new children's book days after a former producer accused him in a lawsuit of sexual harassment, his publisher said on Monday.

Promotion of the book got caught up in the shower of publicity over a lawsuit brought against O'Reilly last Wednesday by an associate producer, Andrea Mackris, who accused the commentator of pressuring her to engage in phone sex.

"Because of the intense media scrutiny Mr. O'Reilly is currently facing, he and HarperCollins have jointly decided to postpone the final media interviews planned to promote 'The O'Reilly Factor for Kids,"' the publisher said in a statement.

"We hope hope to resume the book promotion with Mr. O'Reilly at a later date and we wish him well during this difficult time," it said.

Translation: Bill's book has died. His publisher has regrets.
