Bill O'Reilly to get payout up to $25 million


Bill O'Reilly will exit Fox News with a severance package valued at about $25 million, a person familiar with the matter said, after he was forced out in the wake of sexual-harassment allegations.

The payout is less than the US$40 million 21st Century Fox Inc had to pay Fox News co-founder Roger Ailes to depart previous year after he was accused of sexual harassment.

But pressure mounted on the company to take action after a New York Times investigation found that O'Reilly and the company had reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him.

CNN host Jake Tapper asked former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Thursday whether she experienced harassment or intimidation at Fox News when she worked there as a contributor.

"It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims". It's recently been reported that Kelly cited O'Reilly's dismissive and contemptuous comments about the Ailes story as one of the reasons she left Fox News for NBC.

One was Gretchen Carlson, a former Fox News anchor. O'Reilly said in a statement at the time that he had settled only to spare his children from controversy.

After the 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.

"These venues have a responsibility to not be complicit in supporting or providing a platform to someone who has allegedly sexually harassed women", said Julie Mastrine, a Care2 spokeswoman.

You only have to look at the performance of this squad last Sunday, they limited Chelsea to hardly any shots on target at all. But it was Lyon who triumphed after a tense penalty shootout, which ended 7-6 to complete the semi final lineup.

The outrageous payouts to Ailes and O'Reilly aren't the only reason to question Murdoch & Sons honest commitment to making Fox News a safe workplace for women.

His 8pm programme, which mixes discussion segments with his pugnacious commentary, drew an average of four million viewers each night during the first three months of the year, the most ever for a cable news programme.

O'Reilly's contract was reportedly re-upped at $18 million per year.
