Right-Wing TV Pundit O'Reilly Sticks Foot in Mouth Over Death of Vermont Girl, 12

Nor have the authorities said whether the 12-year-old had been sexually assaulted. Yet O'Reilly, in the July 14 broadcast of his Fox News talk show, "The O'Reilly Factor," boldly asserted that Bennett was "raped," according to a transcript of the broadcast published Thursday in The Times Argus, the daily newspaper of the state capital of Montpelier.

O'Reilly's remark, uttered in the absence -- for now -- of any supportive evidence, potentially could jeopardize the state and federal investigation and prosecution of Jacques and of Bennett's former stepfather, Raymond Gagnon of San Antonio, Texas.
