Bill O'Reilly may get $25 million payout

21 April 2017, 06:57 | Andy Ferguson

Gabriel Sherman, a long-time O'Reilly-watcher at NY magazine, reported Wednesday that the Murdochs - Rupert and sons Lachlan and James - have decided the veteran host must go and were negotiating issues such as the timing of an announcement and whether O'Reilly would be allowed to say good-bye to his audience. Their comments are ostensibly limited by a non-disclosure agreement.

"Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee just showed exactly what she thinks of Bill O'Reilly's non-apology following his ouster from Fox News. The article prompted the loss of numerous advertisers from O'Reilly's show, "The O'Reilly Factor", and new accusations of harassment.

The current contract was expected to extend through the next presidential election to either 2020 or 2021, the sources said.

O'Reilly denied wrongdoing Wednesday and previously, saying he paid settlements to his accusers to "put to rest any controversies to spare my children".

Fox News has consistently been the most-watched network in all of cable television, not just news, over the past few months.

Twenty-First Century Fox's last fiscal year, which ended June 30, 2016, brought in a total of $7.65 billion in advertising revenue.

O'Reilly is 67. He's getting 25 million in severance.

O'Reilly's exit, which was first reported by NY magazine, follows that of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes, who was forced to resign in July after being accused of sexual misconduct by a number of women, including former anchor Gretchen Carlson. Ailes, the founding CEO of Fox News, was accused of harassment by Fox employees.

These guys are out there to protect you and when you got the chance to help them out, you should", said Jones. A cab driver came to the officer's aid and was also allegedly struck by the suspect.

O'Reilly's "Killing" historical series, including "Killing Lincoln" and "Killing Reagan", have consistently sold 1 million or more copies in hardcover, a rare achievement in publishing, and his platform on Fox enabled him to promote his work. He recently bought a $36 million oceanfront home in Florida.

Then came an April 1 report in The New York Times that five women had been paid a total of $13 million to keep quiet about disturbing encounters with O'Reilly.

Amid the uproar, several other women came forward with yet more complaints against the Fox host.

When Ailes was sued, Fox asked the law firm Paul, Weiss to conduct an internal investigation. O'Reilly is on a two-week vacation that on Wednesday took.

This month, the timeline repeated itself.

He called it "outrageous" that the latest allegation, from the unidentified African-American woman, was being treated as fact despite coming from an anonymous person nearly a decade ago.

In a memo to Fox staff on Wednesday, the Murdochs said the decision followed an extensive review done in collaboration with an outside counsel.

"Everything that we said in our statement is all you need to know". She claimed that every time he walked by her, she could feel him looking at her cleavage and "leering" at her. Burgess said O'Reilly had no reason to be near her desk. "But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today", O'Reilly said in the statement, which was emailed by crisis communications expert Mark Fabiani.
