Out at Fox, Bill O'Reilly denies harassment claims

Galeno Paniagua | 21 Abril, 2017, 02:14

It is the end of an era here at the Fox News Channel.

Still, O'Reilly's removal was a stunning decision, and one that could prove deeply unpopular with his strong following of Fox News viewers who buy his bestselling books and see him at live appearances on the road. 21st Century Fox issued a statement Wednesday, April 19, 2017, .

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".

"In many ways, he led Fox's cable news revolution", said Frank Sesno, a journalism professor at George Washington University and former CNN Washington bureau chief.

Bill O'Reilly has always been an imposing presence in cable news and the so-called culture wars.

"I don't think that these comments were focused from a sexual standpoint", Greene said.

Pakistan's top court rules prime minister can stay in power
Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should be anxious after the Pakistan Supreme Court's majority verdict on Thursday. The other two judges wanted him to be disqualified straight away.

She said she was prepared to deal with the backlash from speaking out against O'Reilly order to make work "less toxic for our children". His audience was larger in the first three months of this year than it has ever been, according to Nielsen.

O'Reilly's attorney claimed on Tuesday that his client - a long-time conservative media icon - had been the target of a "smear campaign" financed by leftwing activist organizations.

But after the New York Times report, advertisers including BMW of North America, Allstate Corp, French pharmaceuticals maker Sanofi SA and T. Rowe Price, pulled their advertising from O'Reilly's primetime The O'Reilly Factor show. Concern over whether Fox broke the law by failing to disclose its settlements to investors is more likely to impact approval than whether the company is mired in sexual misconduct allegations, said Claire Enders of Enders Analysis, who has studied the Murdoch empire for years. It's the top-rated show on the No. 1 cable network - one that, according to the investment bank Nomura's estimates, accounts for fully 20 percent of profits at 21st Century Fox.

He was photographed in Rome shaking Pope Francis' hand on Wednesday. In a statement from O'Reilly he expressed his gratitude to the fans of his show among other things.

O'Reilly, 67, had ruled the "no spin zone" on television with a quick smile and an even quicker temper. He pushed a populist, conservative-leaning point of view born from growing up on Long Island, and was quick to shout down those who disagreed with him.

The audience booed, but Colbert cut them off.

Don't expect O'Reilly to slip quietly away, said Annenberg's Hollihan. Calling the situation "disheartening", O'Reilly barely acknowledged the severe accusations against him, dismissing them as "unfounded claims". No more silencing women!

His book publishing partner, Henry Holt, said Wednesday that "our plans have not changed".

"This is also a case where other parts of the Murdoch empire said they will not tolerate Fox News' rogue culture anymore", he told MSNBC.

Fox News parent 21st Century Fox announced in a statement earlier on Wednesday that it was severing ties with its star host.

"Hello, Nation, and shame on you". On a regular segment, we're on every Monday and he got Margaret's name wrong and, Margaret said "Hey get my name right", and he said "Oh, I'm sorry, there's a lot of blondes in this operation, I can't keep you straight".

"You didn't deserve this great man", Colbert said, channeling his Comedy Central character.

As Carlson told Variety recently: "It's so unbelievable that in 2017, nearly every single woman has a story about sexual harassment".
