Fox News 'to drop host Bill O'Reilly' after harassment cases


Fox News is reportedly about to drop the country's top-rated cable news host, Bill O'Reilly, amid claims he sexually harassed female colleagues.

The Wall Street Journal - owned by Rupert Murdoch, who also owns Fox News - reports the network is "preparing to cut ties" with the presenter.

Pressure on Fox has mounted since recent reports that five women received $13m in payouts because of Mr O'Reilly.

More than 50 sponsors have withdrawn ads from his show, The O'Reilly Factor.

US media report that the board of 21st Century Fox will hold a meeting about the matter on Thursday.

According to New York Magazine, executives were holding emergency meetings on Wednesday morning to discuss how to get rid of Mr O'Reilly.

The presenter, who has been with the network almost since its inception, has denied all of the allegations.

On Tuesday evening a lawyer for a former African-American clerical worker at Fox alleged her client had been harassed by Mr O'Reilly in 2008.

Lawyer Lisa Bloom said the Fox News host had referred to the unidentified woman as "hot chocolate".

"He would leer at her," said Ms Bloom. "He would always do this when no one else was around, and she was scared."

Mr O'Reilly's attorney, Marc Kasowitz, said the latest accusation was part of a "brutal campaign of character assassination that is unprecedented in post-McCarthyist America".

Mr Kasowitz said this was being driven by "far-left organizations bent on destroying O'Reilly for political and financial reasons".

Sources at the company tell US media that Rupert Murdoch was in favour of keeping Mr O'Reilly in his post.

The O'Reilly Factor draws nearly four million viewers per night.

But James Murdoch, Rupert's son and chief executive officer of 21st Century Fox, reportedly argued that Mr O'Reilly should go.

The company reputation has taken a hit after sexual harassment allegations were also levelled at Roger Ailes, the former head of Fox News.

Mr Ailes resigned in 2016 after being sued by a former Fox News presenter, Gretchen Carlson.

Right now, a key issue on the table is whether he would be allowed to say good-bye to his audience, perhaps the most loyal in all of cable (O’Reilly’s ratings have ticked up during the sexual-harassment allegations). DeadDeadDeadDeadDeadDeadDeadDeadDeadDead

he had signed a contract for 20 million a year and of course they had to pay him some sort of "severance" bullsh*t deal, but i am glad that he can't spill his venom on tv anymore


it is really disgusting that after the allegations of sexual harassment came out his ratings INCREASED. those people are literally brain dead.

not sure if it is a smart move for anyone to pick him for a new tv show when FOX paid 13 million to shut up the accusers.

Glenn Beck had to start his own thing when they fired him. And since Bill O'Reilly's viewer has an average age of dinosaur and dodo bird, I think (hope, pray) he's finished.
