Fox stock holds steady following O'Reilly firing

Due to a confidentiality agreement, 21st Century Fox and O'Reilly's representatives would not acknowledge the payout.

Tucker Carlson, the 9 p.m. host who will move to 8 p.m. next Monday, held onto the bulk of the "Factor" lead-in, averaging 2.8 million total viewers and 588,000 in the demo.

During the Today show's extensive coverage on Thursday of Bill O'Reilly leaving Fox News over sexual harassment allegations, the NBC morning program used the controversy to resurrect the unsubstantiated 1991 smear campaign against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. O'Reilly wasn't just a cash cow for Fox: He was the tribune of its core audience and a key to the network's identity-a conservative white man with little patience for progressive values and contemporary culture.

Two police officers shot, one killed, in Paris, reports say
Earlier this week, two men were arrested in Marseille whom police said had been planning an attack ahead of the election. Paris resident Daoud Kal, 29, said he was walking in the area near a metro station when he heard four to five shots.

But pressure mounted on the company to take action after a New York Times investigation found that Mr. O'Reilly and the company had reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him.

Earlier this year, the network extended Mr. O'Reilly's contract by four years. His previous contract had been set to expire in 2017.

In addition, though the contract was extended, it also modified the company's financial commitment to O'Reilly if he was dismissed, so that he would receive a maximum of one year salary, according to two people. In a memo to employees, the senior Murdoch paid respect to O'Reilly's success, but said the company was committed "to fostering a work environment built on the values of respect and trust".

Pence: 'Encouraging' That North Korea Is 'Getting The Message'
Russian Federation maintains close ties to North Korea, with which it shares a border, but isn't an ally to the regime like China. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi repeated China's line that the crisis could only be resolved by diplomacy.

Burgess said the harassment went on, and got even more aggressive, but she didn't report it to Fox because she didn't want to jeopardize her job at Fox or with her temp agency.

By ratings standards, Bill O'Reilly is one of the most accomplished TV personalities in the history of cable news.

His departure follows the similar ouster of longtime powerful Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, who was also forced out this past summer after more than 20 women accused him of sexual harassment.
