CNN and Business Insider both have reporters who read the book and say that Old School contains some timely (if unsettling) material.
CNN’s Julia Horowitz says that there is a section on consent that clearly states, “No means no.” Per Horowitz, the passage is as follows:
It would be easy to make fun of all the hoops college administrators expect their students to jump through today before they engage in any kind of intimacy. But there’s no middle ground here. It’s all about the Old School tenets of respect and responsibility. No means no.
Elsewhere in the book, he reportedly voices opposition for safe spaces and trigger warnings, which, like campaigns against sexual assault, are often associated with college campuses. He also notes that the HR manager, not the CEO, is the most important person in the corporate workplace. In light of the recent allegations against him, which were reportedly settled financially with the accusers by Fox News and O’Reilly, this is interesting.
Also interesting is what Business Insider‘s Rebecca Harrington revealed about what O’Reilly said anyone on a date should do: observe “the Old School tenets of respect and responsibility.”
