Fox newscaster, Bill O'Reilly is scheduled to speak at a dinner in Palm Beach, Florida, at the end of March to raise funds for a resource center for rape survivors, It Happened to Alexa Foundation.
Established in 2003, the foundation assists rape victims’ families with travel expenses during the litigation process and is the only organization of its kind in the United States.
Bloggers who have gotten word that O'Reilly will be the keynote speaker are bamboozled by the organization's choice.
O'Reilly, who spoke at a previous event organized by It Happened to Alexa Foundation last March, drew criticism back in 2006 for his comments that suggested 18-year-old rape and murder victim, Jennifer Moore, was slightly at fault for walking around in a miniskirt the night of her death.
Said O'Reilly at the time: "She (Moore) was 5-foot-2, 105 pounds, wearing a miniskirt and a halter top with a bare midriff. Now, again, there you go. So every predator in the world is gonna pick that up at 2 in the morning."
