Fox News canceled “The O’Reilly Factor” amidst a flurry of sexual harassment allegations against the reporter Bill O’Reily.
According to the network,
“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel,”
Meanwhile, O’Reilly released a statement of his own saying,
“It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today.”
An investigation by The New York Times revealed that Fox and O’Reilly had settlements totaling $13 million with five women. These women have accused O’Reilly of sexual harassment and verbal abuse.
