THOMAS WOODS: So was he basically doing what Hollywood has been doing all along? You rub my back, I will rub yours?

This seems quite dismissive of sexual harassment and the people who have been victimized by harassers like O'Reilly. Care to clarify your position?

I'm not exactly sure what he was doing, but from what I
have heard is he was using his leverage on women who
want to be on his show. If you want to be on my show,
you have to be nice to me.

It sounded exactly like Hollywood stories I have heard
all my life. Like the two guys on Lost Boys who had to
be nice to their producers to get the parts.

The term for that is sexual harassment.

I really don't understand the whole line of thinking that if other guys did the same thing (particularly if the "other guys" might have been liberal or Democrat) it somehow diminishes, excuses, or mitigates what O'Reilly did.

Full stop.

That's all you need to know. 

He was using his position of power on women as "leverage". 

That's wrong.  You acknowledge that you know that's what he did and, quite frankly, that's all you need to know.  Anything else is sandstorms and obfuscation.
