Bill O'Reily, Fox News Sued for Disparaging Female Accuser

Bill O'Reily, Fox News Sued for Disparaging Female Accuser

One of Bill O'Reilly's former accusers sued him and Fox News on Monday for allegedly defaming her and breaching their settlement agreement.

"Fox News has been aware of complaints about inappropriate behavior by Mr. O'Reilly since at least 2002, when Mr. O'Reilly stormed into the newsroom and screamed at a young producer, according to current and former employees, some of whom witnessed the incident".

"A History" author has time and again claimed that the harassment allegations that led to his ouster from the Fox News in April have no merit while adding that he resolved the matters privately just to protect his children.

Berstein's attorney filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of NY against O'Reilly and Fox News for breach of contract and defamation.

CBOE beats CME to bitcoin futures launch with Dec 10 start
One bitcoin was worth just a fraction of a penny when it started trading in 2010, and by the start of this year was worth $1,000. Bitcoin trading markets seem to have already priced the CBOE's move into their assessment of the cryptocurrency's price.

Bernstein's complaint also argues that O'Reilly, depicted himself as a victim, and "claimed that the complaints against him are extortionate".

Fox News did not respond to a request for comment on the lawsuit.

The complaint, filed in NY federal court, also addresses statements from Fox News this past April. "She was forced out of her job al Fox News and paid a settlement because of his mistreatment", it declares.

Bernstein did not allege she was a victim of sexual harassment in the lawsuit.

She went to HR and other organization administrators to gripe about him a few times.

O'Reilly would make other comments including to The Hollywood Reporter, which is cited in today's lawsuit. The measure of cash she got subsequent to entering the settlement in July 2002 isn't known. Mullin's law firm, Smith Mullin, also represented former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson, who alleged she was harassed by the late Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes. In my more than 20 years at Fox News Channel, no one has ever filed a complaint about me with the Human Resources Department, even on the anonymous hotline.

The Times reported in April that O'Reilly and Fox News paid out millions of dollars to five women to settle harassment claims.

"Defendants Fox and O'Reilly materially breached the Agreement by making statements other than the agreed-upon statement and by issuing false, disparaging and defamatory statements", the 14-page jury trial seeking four count complaint asserts. "Others at Fox confirmed Ms. Bernstein's complaints".
