7 things to know about former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly

21 Avril, 2017, 03:05 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

O'Reilly's departure comes two and a half weeks after an investigation by The New York Times revealed how Fox News and 21st Century Fox and O'Reilly reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him.

The company said Wednesday that it had parted ways with longtime host Bill O'Reilly after a "thorough and careful review of allegations against him".

O'Reilly never addressed the allegations on his show - which saw its ratings rise following the report - before announcing on April 11 that he was leaving for a long-planned family vacation.

He had initially planned to return to his The O'Reilly Factor show on April 24, but as outrage mounted and new allegations of inappropriate behaviour surfaced, it became clear the company could no longer afford to back the star who helped bring Fox News to prominence almost 20 years ago.

The muted response stood in stark contrast to how O'Reilly defended himself against sexual harassment allegations back in 2004, and the scorched earth counteroffensive mounted last summer by supporters of former Fox News chief Roger Ailes after he faced his own harassment allegations.

O'Reilly said in the statement at the time that he had settled only to spare his children from the controversy. Marc Kasowitz, O'Reilly's lawyer, said in a statement on Tuesday that the television host "has been subjected to a brutal campaign of character assassination that is unprecedented in post-McCarthyist America".

The statement announcing O'Reilly's departure was signed by Rupert, Lachlan, and James Murdoch. Carlson's own entry into Fox News' network took place after another major shakeup.

The first came after Megyn Kelly, who hosted the second-highest rated program on prime-time cable news, left the network in January for NBC News.

"Afterwards, O'Reilly simply said "let's get out of here".

The memo also praised O'Reilly's successes.

"You need to write and call Fox News Channel today and tell them, you can lose your advertisers or you can lose your viewers", Beck said on his radio show.

"He insulted me, and within fifteen minutes, said "forget all the career advice I just gave you".

O'Reilly is also one of the country's most popular nonfiction authors.

The National Geographic channel has aired a series of adaptations of O'Reilly books, including "Killing Reagan" and "Killing Kennedy". Ousting O'Reilly, he said, "does not speak to a changed culture". Burke, a former Fox News correspondent in Rome, denied having facilitated the tickets.

Francis always swings by the VIP seats at the end of his audience for a quick round of handshakes. Yesterday, an African American woman who worked as a clerical worker in 2008 at Fox News, claimed O'Reilly engaged in a pattern of harassment that lasted for months including making animal noises at her, staring at her cleavage and calling her "hot chocolate".
