Fox kept Bill O'Reilly despite $32M sexual harassment settlement

22 October 2017

The statement said that after Ailes was sacked, dozens of women accused scores of male employees at Fox News of harassment.

All that has not only been reported by the Times, but also now confirmed by 21st Century Fox themselves. British regulators said scandals in the USA have already threatened its attempt to acquire the European satellite network Sky.

O'Reilly told the Times, "I never mistreated anyone", but wanted to handle things privately to protect his kids.

O'Reilly lost his job at Fox in April after The Times revealed the existence of other settlements with women who had accused him of sexual harassment or verbal abuse.

As previously reported, he was officially forced out of Fox News in April. "The New York Times has copies of two letters written by 21st Century Fox lawyers attesting to that fact".

"After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O'Reilly have agreed that Bill O'Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel", 21st Century Fox said in a statement at the time.

Here's a quick look back at O'Reilly's downfall amid the latest bombshell Saturday. The goal was to promote O'Reilly's book. Saturday's developments may make that more hard.

The allegations against O'Reilly included "repeated harassment, a nonconsensual sexual relationship and the sending of gay pornography and other sexually explicit material" to a longtime network analyst, according to a New York Times article published on Saturday, October 21.

As part of the terms of their agreement, the woman signed an affidavit, dated January 17 and obtained by the newspaper, stating that the two sides had resolved their dispute and that she had no claims against O'Reilly concerning any of the allegations in the draft complaint.

Interviews with people familiar with the settlement and documents obtained by The New York Times show how the company tried and ultimately failed to contain the second wave of a sexual harassment crisis that initially burst into public view the previous summer and cost the Fox News chairman, Roger Ailes, and eventually O'Reilly their jobs.

He said some non-state actors and enemy agencies were behind Shehzadi's kidnapping and that she was recovered from their custody. Shahzadi's disappearance once again came to the fore in 2016 when news broke that her brother had committed suicide.

In a report from Us Weekly, the publication stated that Fox News renewed Bill O'Reilly's contract when they knew the former news anchor had settled a $32 million agreement regarding sexual harassment allegations just a few months before.

"His new contract, which was made at a time typical for renewals of multi-year talent contracts, added protections for the company specifically aimed at harassment, including that Mr. O'Reilly could be dismissed if the company was made aware of other allegations or if additional relevant information was obtained in a company investigation", the spokesman added.

"The company subsequently acted based on the terms of this contract", the statement continued.

Finally, in the more than 20 years Bill O'Reilly worked at Fox News, not one complaint was filed against him with the Human Resources Department or Legal Department by a coworker, even on the anonymous hotline. In April, after advertisers began to flee O'Reilly's show, the company parted ways with O'Reilly, ending the popular commentator's two-decade Fox News career. "Bill O'Reilly's statement falsely says our story didn't mention affidavit Lise Wiehl signed", writes Schmidt.
