Bill O'Reilly accuser appears on 'The View'

"After a thorough and careful review of the allegations against him, the Company and Bill O'Reilly have agreed that Mr. O'Reilly will not return to the Fox News Channel", Rupert, James and Lachlan wrote in a letter addressed to their employees.

The New York Times revealed earlier this month that O'Reilly and his bosses paid about $13 million to five women in exchange for them not pursuing lawsuits or speaking about their cases.

A day before Bill O'Reilly was sacked, his attorney Marc E. Kasowitz put out a statement that claimed the Fox News host had been "subjected to a brutal campaign of character assassination that is unprecedented in post-McCarthyist America".

After being relieved of his duties as a right-wing rabble-rouser, O'Reilly issued a statement noting, "It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims". He had plenty say on the world we live in now as well, and expressed surprise that sexual harassment is now a crime.

CNN, quoting sources, reported that Mr O'Reilly will be paid "tens of millions of dollars" as part of his exit.

The CEO vowed to never again let a law enforcement remove "a booked, paid, seated passenger", from a plane. "We can't do that". He acknowledged that Sunday evening's event make passage of that proposal much tougher. "That's my promise", said Mr Munoz.

Noah says it best: "This is so racist I can't even be mad about it".

At the outset, O'Reilly disputed a point made by his guest, New York University professor Linda Mills, who said that women should "think of themselves as sexual beings". Burgess told the co-hosts that she was "tired of reliving the trauma every time I saw a woman speak out, and I wanted to save him from doing it to anyone else". Similar sexual harassment accusations led to the ouster of Fox News chief Roger Ailes in 2016.

Indeed, he was the linchpin in the network's highly lucrative primetime lineup, where his show was the No. 1 cable news program for 16 years and this year was averaging close to 4 million viewers each night.

A spokeswoman for Fox News referred calls to representatives for 21st Century Fox, who didn't respond to requests for comment.

Separately, 21st Century Fox made settlements with six of Ailes' accusers, including Gretchen Carlson, who received a $20 million settlement.
