On the November 10 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Fox News' The Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly, during a segment on a telecommunications executive who spent $250,000 in one night at a New York strip club, host Bill O'Reilly asked co-host Lis Wiehl if "it might be worth learning how" to dance for a $10,000 tip, adding, "You're [Wiehl] a good-looking girl. I mean, if you haven't seen Lis on TV, she's a good-looking blonde."
Wiehl, a Harvard-trained law professor and Fox News legal analyst, has faced similar comments from O'Reilly in the recent past. On the November 3 broadcast of The Radio Factor, O'Reilly called for a "full-body search" of Wiehl, adding that "she asked for it"; on the October 26 broadcast of the radio show, O'Reilly asked Wiehl to protest outside of CBS studios in a bikini; on the June 24, 2004, broadcast, O'Reilly referred to Wiehl as "eye-candy."
From the November 10 broadcast of Fox News' The Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly:
O'REILLY: All right, so he's giving, according to this, $10,000 tips to the dancers. Can you dance?
O'REILLY: You can't dance.
WIEHL: Cannot dance.
O'REILLY: Don't you think it might be worth learning how?
WIEHL: No. For $10,000?
O'REILLY: Yeah. You're a good-looking girl. I'm telling you that.
O'REILLY: I mean if you haven't seen Lis on TV, she's a good-looking blonde.
WIEHL: Oh thank you.
O'REILLY: And she's on the radio. Ten thousand dollars for doing a little dance --
WIEHL: No thanks.
O'REILLY: Wouldn't do it?
O'REILLY: I would if I were a girl.
O'REILLY: I would.
WIEHL: Why don't you put on a little tutu --
O'REILLY: I would.
O'REILLY: For $10,000, I --
O'REILLY: If I were a girl, I'd be up on that doing the monkey on the table or whatever you want me to do. I wouldn't let them touch me or anything --
O'REILLY: Ten grand, you wouldn't -- you're not doing it?
WIEHL: I just want to see you in the little tutu --
O'REILLY: No, you're never going to see that. I mean nobody wants to see me. But they would want to see you.
WIEHL: [Laughing] It's not going to happen.
O'REILLY: But you're not going to do it.
