Bill O’Reilly’s was the top-rated host in cable news came to a blatant end on Wednesday, April 19, as he was fired from Fox News after finding out about a series of sexual harassment accusations against him and an internal investigation that turned up even more.

According to NY Times, Bill O’Reilly and his employers were put under pressure after an article by The New York Times on April 1 revealed how Fox News and its parent company, 21st Century Fox, had repeatedly stood by him as he and the company reached settlements with five women who had argued that sexual harassment and other inappropriate behavior by him were happening.


The New York Times article published April 1, and everyone thought it was a prank.  However, it was no joke. The newspaper had investigation done and revealed that five women had been given nearly $13 million by Bill to keep quiet about the incidents.


All the accusers were women who either worked directly for O’Reilly or who appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor,” according to The NY Times. They complained that they were verbally abused. Of the five different complaints, four of them involved sexual harassment claims and the fifth involved verbal abuse allegations, The Times claimed.


On April 18, more than two weeks after The Times report, a different woman had come forward.
“I represent a new woman who just phoned in a complaint of sexual and racial harassment against Bill O’Reilly to the Fox News hotline,” Bloom posted on twitter.
A couple of tweets later, Bloom said that her phone has been “ringing off the hook,” and warned the Fox News founder, Rupert Murdoch, that she would represent all of O’Reilly’s accusers for free.
