Report: Bill O’Reilly settled a $32 million sexual harassment claim before he renewed his Fox News contract in January

  • According to the NY Times, 21st Century Fox “acknowledges that it was aware of (a longtime network analyst’s) complaints about Mr. O’Reilly. They included allegations of repeated harassment, a nonconsensual sexual relationship and the sending of gay pornography and other sexually explicit material to her, according to the people briefed on the matter. It was at least the sixth agreement — and by far the largest — made by either Mr. O’Reilly or the company to settle harassment allegations against him. Despite that record, 21st Century Fox began contract negotiations with Mr. O’Reilly, and in February granted him a four-year extension that paid $25 million a year.”
