The Rundown - Mon 10/23/17: Ben Carson!; Is sexual harassment everywhere?

Dr. Ben Carson was many people's preference to be president of the United States. That didn't work out but he's now the Secretary of Health and Human Services. 

At 8:36 AM, Secretary Carson joins the show for his only radio interview during his current visit to Denver.

At 7:06 AM, we'll speak with Colorado GOP Chairman Jeff Hays about the amusing and perhaps slightly embarrassing story regarding slow ticket sales of a fundraiser this Thursday night with Vice President Mike Pence. Chairman Hays is actually extending a special offer to my listeners which I'll share with you during the show.

Bill O'Reilly's attorney says that the New York Times' blockbuster article Saturday about a $32 million settlement with former Fox News contributor Lis Wiehl over claims of long-term repeated sexual harassment by O'Reilly and "a non-consensual sexual relationship" is "out of context, false, defamatory, and obviously designed to embarrass Bill O'Reilly and to keep him from competing in the marketplace."

My take: O'Reilly's explanation that he did it to protect his children is not credible given the size of the settlement. NOBODY pays $32 million to settle false charges.

And President Trump's accusers wonder if he will ever pay a price for what they claim he did:

Finally, if you've ever traveled around eastern Asia and Oceania, you'll understand better than most Americans will why this would be so controversial in that part of the world:
