Fox dumps embattled host over harassment allegations
Fox dumps embattled host over harassment allegations
21 Abril, 2017, 00:57
In a shocking reversal of fortune for one of the most prominent voices in TV news, Bill O'Reilly has been ousted from Fox News Channel amid the firestorm over sexual harassment allegations levelled against the host in recent years.
But even after the ouster, some employees said they were skeptical about whether the treatment of women at Fox News would actually change.
In the wake of his firing Wednesday, former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly maintained that sexual harassment claims against him were not true, calling his dismissal over the allegations "tremendously disheartening".
"I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers". O'Reilly, who was photographed on Wednesday shaking hands with Pope Francis in Rome, has denied any wrongdoing.
O'Reilly has denied allegations of harassment - including sexual harassment - despite payments from the network and himself to keep at least five accusers from going public, according to The New York Times.
The New York Times reports that an African-American woman - who remains anonymous - came forward this week with allegations of her own, saying O'Reilly would at various times grunt like a "wild boar" at her desk, leer at her and refer to her as "hot chocolate".
The news of O'Reilly's departure comes on the heels of an exodus of advertisers from his show's time slot.
In a nod to the allegations against O'Reilly, the statement closed with "we want to underscore our consistent commitment to fostering a work environment built on the values of trust and respect".
Representatives at Fox News and its parent, Twenty-First Century Fox, were not immediately available for comment about how O'Reilly might be replaced.
According to ad-tracking firm Kantar Media, it brought in $147.13 million in advertising revenue in 2016.
NEW YORK (AP) - There was no immediate response from Bill O'Reilly's bosses Wednesday to escalating reports that the Fox News Channel personality will lose his job following accusations he had harassed women.
Scores of companies yanked advertising from his show, the most popular in United States cable news watched on average by 3.98 million viewers in early 2017, according to Adweek.
O'Reilly's departure will not have any effect on Twenty-First Century Fox's overall profitability, said Brian Wieser, an analyst at Pivotal Research.
It was signed by Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch, who is also executive chairman of News Corp, which owns the New York Post.
"They could literally go dark during the time his programme airs and they would still be profitable", said Wieser.
A bigger issue for investors is what the Murdochs will do to prevent the company being in the headlines again just a few months from now, Wieser said.
"What Rush Limbaugh was to talk radio, Bill O'Reilly has been to conservative television", said Mark Feldstein, communication professor at the University of Maryland.
