O'Reilly done at Fox

If a number of the former female anchors at Fox News are to be believed Ailes and O'Reilly were just part of the harrassment problem at Fox News. 'There was harrassment' - 'it was pervasive' and the expectation that 'there is still more to come.'

There is also now a criminal investigation of Fox News over whether or not these 'hush money payments' were legal.

And Colbert was being at his Colbert best on this last night.

20 effin million! :o


... and signed a (3) year contract recently. Therefore, possibly 60 mill in severance pay.


My guess is if happy hands Bill is guilty of impropriety he won't see a cent of a payout.

Ailes apparently got a $40 million dollar buyout when he was asked to leave due to allegations against him - so I would not be at all surprised to hear of some sort of buyout of O'Reilly.

Really? That's too bad.

As much as I liked Bill O as an anchor, if he was doing what he was accused of he shouldn't see a dime.

Yeah, that doesn't send the healthiest of messages, does it?

I wonder how much of a buyout I could get for sexual harassment accusations at the workplace?

Too bad I'm a freelancer working from home! :x

The vast majority of this so called harassment nonsense in our PC world of looking at someone the wrong way or that person all of a sudden misinterpreting the wrong way with maybe $ in the eyes and going haywire, has got to stop.

Im with yah argoT.. Just like those girls and the trump claims. Whatever happened to those?

Its a tough spot though. On one hand you want to mantain a innocent untill proven guilty but on the other youre basically calling the possible victims liars.

He's more centrist then I'd like but at least didn't have a problem calling out small Berries for his lack of testicular fortitude.
