Bill O'Reilly out at Fox after harassment allegations

21 April 2017, 07:25 | Gladys Abbott

As of Wednesday evening, the network had already removed O'Reilly's name from the show's title. O'Reilly's success at appealing to like-minded viewers made him and Fox into cable news leaders. By comparison, Twenty-First Century Fox's last fiscal year, which ended June 30, 2016, brought in a total of $7.65 billion in advertising revenue.

He commented on the issue Wednesday, calling it "tremendously disheartening" and labeling the claims "completely unfounded", according to the Washington Post.

Shortly after the New York Times exposé, over twenty advertisers announced they were withdrawing ads from "The O'Reilly Factor".

His abrupt dismissal ends O'Reilly's 21-years at the helm of The O'Reilly Factor, which began as The O'Reilly Report when the fledgling network began in 1996.

Powers said that she then went to O'Reilly's executive producer and said, "He needs to apologize and he needs to never do that again, or I am not doing his show anymore".

O'Reilly is also one of the country's most popular nonfiction authors. Since then, another unnamed woman at Fox News came forward to accuse O'Reilly of sexual harassment this week.

"I understand how hard this has been for many of you", Rupert Murdoch said in the memo.

She quit the job - and the business - due to her treatment by O'Reilly, he said. The channel's majority owner is Fox News Channel parent company 21st Century Fox. Shares in Twenty-First Century Fox were down less than 1 per cent at $30.50 in Wednesday afternoon trading.

O'Reilly, who was axed by Fox News over multiple sexual harassment claims, has denied all allegations made against him.

Lisa Bloom, who represents three women accusing O'Reilly of sexual harassment, called the announcement by Fox News a victory for victims who were courageous enough to come forward and hopes more will now do the same.

The combative host, who has worked at Fox for 21 years, is now on what he called a "long-planned break" but had originally meant to return to his nightly show on April 24. They were demanding the network to fire Bill O'Reilly. In its first public statement since the news of the women's allegations broke, Henry Holt, O'Reilly's publisher, indicated it would continue to publish his books, which have been bestsellers. He has also had best-sellers with everything from the memoir "A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity" to his most recent work, "Old School", which includes passages urging the respectful treatment of women.

It is not known what words were exchanged between O'Reilly and Francis.

But even after the ouster, some employees said they were skeptical about whether the treatment of women at Fox News would actually change.
