I didn’t whine about it and call up my senator and say, “Hey, I’m 10 times better than this one that’s making more money than me,” bop, bop, bop. And the other thing is that, in a lot of the situations that I was in, particularly at the network news — and I worked for ABC News and CBS News before I came to Fox News — women were treated better than men. They were treated better than men.
They had a little cabal and they intimidated the men in the organization and said, “If you look at me cross-eyed, I’m gonna bring you up to Human Resources and destroy your life,” and every man in the place was terrified of them. And that actually happened.
So, when I’m reading Lis’ book — and I recommend the book because it will stimulate discussion with your wife, your girlfriend, whoever, and you know, you can learn from it. The book again is The 51% Minority. I’m not sympathetic to Lis’ argument at all. I think that Lis has put forth this argument based upon facts. It is true that women make less and that, you know, women have a bigger burden because they have children at home and — that’s all true. But I say the government is not gonna change that and that, in a lot of places, women have formed cabals to terrorize the men because they take advantage of, “Oh, we’re downtrodden. You’re kicking us in the teeth.”
