Bill O'Reilly accuser appears on 'The View'

Bill O'Reilly accuser appears on 'The View'

Yesterday, Fox News Channel lost their biggest star, Bill O'Reilly, and cancelled one of the top-rated TV shows on cable, The O'Reilly Factor. "The secret of Roger Ailes' success is that he got O'Reilly, who has unparalleled talent and was unpredictable and independent but leaned conservative".

As fate would have it, during the same time the allegations about O'Reilly's sexual assault allegations broke, the Fox host had plans to vacation in Italy with his family. After a thorough and careful review of allegations against him, the Company and Bill O'Reilly have agreed that Mr. O'Reilly will not return to the Fox News Channel. "I've done my fair share of jokes about him", the host continued, mentioning that he once stole O'Reilly's microwave, which he auctioned off to benefit wounded soldiers.

His annual salary is worth about $25 million, NBC News reported, citing a person with direct knowledge of O'Reilly's contract. "I wish only the best for Fox News Channel". In recent weeks, The New York Times revealed that O'Reilly and the network had reached settlements with five women who had complained against him, with compensation totaling nearly $13 million.

A day after his ouster from Fox News over allegations of sexual harassment, Bill O'Reilly remains a popular author on Amazon.com.

O'Reilly's infamous "hot chocolate" comment came, Burgess said, one afternoon when she returned to her desk from lunch.

Ailes was paid more than $40 million on the way out.

O'Reilly learned from his attorney that he was being dismissed on Wednesday, as he was in a auto in Rome with his family heading to the airport to fly back to the USA from vacation.

Their decision to terminate O'Reilly was hardly an act of contrition, but rather an act of self-preservation: advertisers were fleeing the network at an alarming rate, and Fox News was forced to run truncated shows during their evening primetime, traditionally the most lucrative timeslot on a network's daily schedule. "At one point, no one even came close - because they were afraid he might sexually harass them". Ailes, the founding CEO of Fox News, was accused of harassment by Fox employees.

On Sunday, after Walsh's call to Fox's corporate hotline, senior managers brought in Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison to investigate the claims. "But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today".

Carlson scored the highest ratings ever for Fox in the 9 p.m. time slot early for the first three months of 2017, but there remains some question about how much that was a result of following O'Reilly in the lineup. "It was a shock, but more power to Fox News - it's private enterprise".
