Fox sacks Bill O'Reilly amid harassment storm

Fox sacks Bill O'Reilly amid harassment storm

The only way to know for sure is to be on the inside; from an outside point of view, the appearance is deeply troubling.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch and his son Lachlan are co-executive chairmen of the company and son James is chief executive officer. The agreements totalled about $13 million. O'Reilly could be totally innocent but when advertisers abandon ship, it's over.

The decision ends a more than 20-year career at Fox News for O'Reilly, who is a best-selling author as well as one of the most popular commentators on US television.

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. The five women who received settlements either worked for O'Reilly or appeared as guests on his programme, according to the New York Times story. Five member Eric Bolling will debut at 5 p.m. Fox's panel show, The Five, will switch to 8 p.m. from its 5 p.m. position. The other prime-time hosts remain - Martha MacCallum at 7 p.m. and Sean Hannity at 10 p.m.
