(Bizpac Review) – Victory statement? Our truth? We slay dragons? Persisted?
One of former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly’s accusers may be a familiar face to viewers of the cable news giant — but it’s her lawyer who demands greater scrutiny.

Occidental College associate politics professor Caroline Heldman, who most recently appeared on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” is the latest of three women claiming that she was harassed by the former network prime-time star.
Fox announced Wednesday that he was being let go from the network as a result of the accusations.
Heldman’s lawyer, publicity-addict Lisa Bloom, drafted and published a politically-charged and hyperbole-laced letter that’s raising eyebrows. She referred to it on her Twitter account as her “victory statement.”
“This is what happens when women speak our truth,” her statement began. “We slay dragons.”

Until now I never realized there were two truths — one for women and another, apparently, for men.
Not to be overlooked, Bloom’s statement ended with the feminist battle cry Elizabeth Warren made famous: “They did it because we persisted.”
Bloom was also proud to mention another client, Wendy Walsh, who is no stranger to far-Left political players according to this tweet:

Earlier this month, when Bloom appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” to discuss another case against O’Reilly, she blurted out in a heated exchange with the program’s host an admission that her cases were all political and all competitive.
During Heldman’s tax day appearance on Fox News last week, she argued with FNC host Tucker Carlson that the top one percent of America’s wage-earners should be taxed at 80 percent.

Several years ago, she claimed that the United States is “a white supremacist society” and that we “dehumanize people of color in this country.”
Marc Kasowitz, O’Reilly’s lawyer responded with a statement. Politico media journalist Hadas Gold reported:

No matter how things eventually turn out, O’Reilly’s next book in his “Killing” series could be titled, “Killing ‘The Factor.’”
