Bill O'Reilly forced out at Fox News

Bill O'Reilly forced out at Fox News

"We know that you, his very loyal viewers, will have a lot of feelings about this, and we will talk more about it later in the program". Others are equally concerned about the attention that is being drawn to 21st Century Fox's handling of the allegations by women inside the company.

Ailes was given $40 million when he was removed from Fox News' helm. "That's because O'Reilly signed a new contract right before being ousted".

In a statement Wednesday, the channel confirmed that the TV adaptation is in early development for 2019. The article prompted the loss of numerous advertisers from O'Reilly's show, "The O'Reilly Factor", and new accusations of harassment.

O'Reilly has another "Killing" book scheduled for September, although the subject hasn't been announced.

Sarah Palin said Thursday the corporate culture at Fox News - particularly how the network treats women - needs to change.

Similarly, Fox paid now-former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes more than $40 million when he was forced out in the wake of his own sexual-harassment charges, money he reportedly used to buy a $36 million house in Palm Beach, Florida.

As for programming, Tucker Carlson will be taking over the 8 p.m. slot.

Panel show "The Five" will be moving from it's 5 p.m. slot to 9 p.m. Next week, "Special Report with Bret Baier" will fill the 5-to-7-p.m. timeslot. "So tonight, we at The Late Show are proud to issue a statement from Bill O'Reilly's biggest fan: conservative pundit Stephen Colbert".

Rounding out the Fox prime-time lineup, "Hannity" remains at 10 p.m. EDT.

The sources told CNN that O'Reilly was to be paid about $25 million a year under the contract, which covered him through 2020 0r 2021, which would include the next presidential election. On Wednesday morning, he met Pope Francis at St. Peter's Square in the Vatican, according to the Daily Mail.

It marks a stunning end to a near ideal marriage between a pugnacious personality and network. "Shame on you. You failed him".

But Fox didn't get rid of him because of his history of alleged sexual harassment, which could hardly be news. The agreements reportedly totaled about $13 million.

O'Reilly denies all the allegations of sexual harrasment.

Francis always swings by the VIP seats at the end of his audience for a quick round of handshakes.

After The Times published its investigation, an O'Reilly accuser called Fox's hotline to report what she described as harassment by O'Reilly in 2013.

UPDATE 2:45 P.M.: This post was updated to reflect the New York Times reporting on O'Reilly's buyout.

Hoover said while she was never sexually harassed "explicitly" by O'Reilly, he commented to her on her appearance, sometimes offering critiques on the length her eyelashes or the color of her lip gloss.

O'Reilly was coincidentally on vacation as rumors of his dismissal swirled.
