Bill O'Reilly denies harassment allegations after losing job at Fox News

Bill O'Reilly denies harassment allegations after losing job at Fox News

Perino said at the top of the show that, "We know you, his loyal viewers, will have a lot of feelings about it". The agreements totalled about $13 million. O'Reilly has maintained his innocence.

In contrast to Fox News, Henry Holt, an imprint of Macmillan that has published O'Reilly's litany of best-selling books, said it was standing by him on Wednesday. The article prompted 21st Century Fox to investigate the host's behavior.

Twenty-First Century Fox Inc has chose to part ways with star cable news host Bill O'Reilly following allegations of sexual harassment, the company said on Wednesday. Nomura estimated Fox News would make more than $9 billion in affiliate fees this year.

And right now, Fox is under the gun for this and also under a federal inquiry to see if it hid payments to women to try to keep it a secret - not only from the public but from shareholders, which could constitute a federal crime.

Southland attorney Lisa Bloom, who represents three women accusing ex-Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly of sexual harassment, said Wednesday O'Reilly's ouster is a victory for victims who were courageous enough to come forward. Tucker Carlson will take over his 8 p.m. ET time slot. On May 1, Eric Bolling, a co-host of "The Five", will debut an hourlong show in the 5 p.m. slot.

Ahmadinejad planning presidential run
Speaking to reporters at a news conference after he registered, he said: "I have come to be the candidate for all of Iran". Iran's President Hassan Rouhani registered on Friday to run for a second four-year term in the country's May election.

At 7 p.m. EDT, Martha MacCullum remains in place.

"The O'Reilly Factor" spent 15 years as the highest-rated cable news show.

When the Republican Party convened in Cleveland in July to nominate Donald Trump for president, Fox News was led by Chairman Roger Ailes and the prime-time lineup of Greta Van Susteren, Bill O'Reilly, Megyn Kelly and Sean Hannity.

Representatives at Fox News and its parent, Twenty-First Century Fox, were not immediately available for comment about how O'Reilly might be replaced. O'Reilly was photographed in Rome shaking Pope Francis' hand on Wednesday.

It marks a stunning end to a near-perfect marriage between a pugnacious personality and network. In it they said "O'Reilly is one of the most accomplished TV personalities in the history of cable news".

Questions abound in aftermath of National Football League star Hernandez's death
The jury found Hernandez not guilty of first-degree murder in the killings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. The circumstances surrounding Hernandez's death are suspicious.

The National Organization for Women (NOW) has called for an independent investigation to be conducted into the "culture of sexual harassment" at Fox News.

Another accuser came forward this week and advertisers have been bailing out of his show, WCBS 880's Marla Diamond reported. O'Reilly has denied wrongdoing.

The statement from 21st Century Fox said the decision to part ways came after "an extensive review done in collaboration with outside counsel". On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal, a newspaper owned by the Murdochs, wrote that the company was preparing to cut ties with O'Reilly.

Following the New York Times' report on April 1 that five women received settlements after accusing O'Reilly of sexual harassment or verbal abuse, Fox covered it only once: a brief mention on Kurtz's weekly media criticism program the day after the story was published.
