Skip to comments.Bill O’Reilly Thrives at Fox News, Even as Harassment Settlements Add Up
Posted on 04/01/2017 11:07:28 AM PDT by Boomer
An investigation by The New York Times has found a total of five women who have received payouts from either Mr. OReilly or the company in exchange for agreeing to not pursue litigation or speak about their accusations against him. The agreements totaled about $13 million.
Two settlements came after the networks former chairman, Roger Ailes, was dismissed last summer in the wake of a sexual harassment scandal, when the company said it did not tolerate behavior that disrespects women or contributes to an uncomfortable work environment.

At least O'Reilly has a nice pulpit to fight back with. Obviously their goal is to get Bill fired. Hey! It worked for Roger Ailes...
The more I know about leftists the more I see just how underhanded and sleazy they really are and I thought they were the lowest of the low before!
Muck raking old news.
The left is on the warpath.
Drudge has linked to this. It’s even worse with the 8pm’r than I thought.
Bill, you old dog!
Yep; and completely unhinged. It appears all sense of decency and honor has been removed from them. They will stop at nothing to torpedo anyone and anything the right does. This is new territory for me. If they have ever gone this nutso before it was either when I wasn't paying attention or before my time.
My hope is it backfires and causes those who are fence sitting moderates to see just how vile the left has become. It's time to re-open the mental institutions and build hundreds more I fear.
The AP also has something on it.
The New Yawk Slimes. LOL!
Homophobia was recently added and it has been used to radically alter the culture, even the culture of the Marine Corps. These weapons are potent.
Perhaps the most potent weapon of all is the charge of racism which was so powerful a weapon that it rivals the Great Depression as the lever which wholly distorted our Constitution. Indeed, the idea of a Constitution as a solemn compact upon which the legitimacy of our republic rests has been to a dismaying degree discredited by charges that it endorses racism and it is therefore to be despised.
So we are seeing application of one of these weapons against a prominent spokesman that many people regard to be conservative. It almost worked against Clarence Thomas and, most recently, against Donald Trump. Fortunately, Trump was strong enough to withstand the assault, perhaps because his opponent was the walking, (barely) breathing embodiment of all that makes misogyny temptingly defensible.
This is probably the reason:
Jim Dwyer-August 16, 2016,
"During arbitration, Mr. Burstein said, Fox News offered to pay her a sum in the seven figures if she renounced claims against Mr. Ailes and others at the network, including the host Bill OReilly.
According to the lawsuit, Ms. Tantaros said she had been subjected to unwelcome advances from Mr. OReilly, whom she had regarded as a friend and adviser."
Uh...misogyny has been on the left list of weapons since 2nd wave feminism...about 45 years ago.
The “Left” has no scruples. Never had any. Never will.
8pmer still paying out hush money 9 years later. smh.
I don't know why... in his efforts to be "fair and balanced" he often misrepresents things, and sometimes outright lies about things. He's a typical MSM weasel in my opinion. He loves to play nice to the left so he can keep getting interviews with Obama, Hillary, etc. It's all about his ratings/money.
Hey Barking Moonbats!
Go ahead and take the bloviating BS narcissist out. He’s just a big phony anyway.
Of course if they took all the liberals off FOXNEWS, they wouldn’t have a lineup.
If O’Reilly pisses off the left, he is doing something right.
I agree, they realize that FOX has damaged their Dem-left brand immensely being a virtual superhighway that brought in the Alt Right internet armies.
They want to crush Hannity, et al.
It is not going to work.
O’Reilly is the Irish cop of days gone by, taking no shit, smashing skulls with a night stick, and beating skells in the precint basement. He’ll fight back, viciously. Especially when he gets his Irish up!
I object to the weaponization of the war between the sexes which we have been waging since Adam and Eve. In this new incarnation we see not only on our college campuses but to a lesser degree in our courtrooms that due process is simply swept away in a spasm of political correctness. Due process, even military due process, has been shoved aside in courts-martial that have grown out of this new twist on misogyny.
One of the worst misogynists in recent times was Lyndon Johnson and his offenses were well-known to the press but got no play. Likewise John F. Kennedy. This is a one-sided standard.
He pisses off the Right, too.
He’s worth around $70 million, and makes around $30 million/year from royalties from book sales alone, so he could easily walk away from Fox and retire quite comfortably any time he pleases.
