Will Bill O Reilly return

Star presenter Bill O'Reilly has to leave Fox News after allegations of sexual harassment, but denies it

Even the backing of the US President no longer helped. "I don't think Bill did anything wrong," Donald Trump said earlier this month after allegations of sexual harassment became known in no less than five cases, according to a report in the New York Times.

As the "Gray Lady" reported on April 1, star presenter Bill O'Reilly, who has hosted the popular format "The O'Reilly Factor" on Fox News since 1996, agreed with five women with the support of the television station on a hush of 13 Million dollars agreed. The five women who allegedly molested O'Reilly had worked for Fox or were guests on his show.

Donald Trump defended O'Reilly: "He should have fought this through to the end"

Donald Trump had stated after the revelatory article in the New York Times: "Personally, I think he shouldn't have sought an out-of-court settlement. He should have fought it through to the end ”. O'Reilly is "a fine guy," said the incumbent US President.

Now, however, the conservative news broadcaster Fox News, which is mostly owned by media mogul Rupert Murdoch, took the consequences of the smoldering affair. "After a thorough review of the allegations against him, the company and Bill O’Reilly have come to the conclusion that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to Fox News," Murdoch and his sons said in a memo to the workforce that evening.

As the New York Times reported today, more than 50 advertisers are said to have dropped out of his show in the past two and a half weeks.

O'Reilly, who is currently on vacation and yesterday met the Pope in the Vatican, defended himself against the allegations, which the 67-year-old described as "completely unfounded". He was "enormously discouraged" about the development, but "this is the reality for many of us who live in public," said O'Reilly in a statement.

Last year, Fox News boss Roger Ailes also resigned on allegations of sexual harassment. Meanwhile, the dismissal of the controversial conservative moderator, who had been controversial for years, made waves on social media:

Bill O’Reilly is being fired despite @POTUS standing by him. Our president is a job killer.

Congratulations to Bill O'Reilly on taking this important first step toward the presidency of the United States.

Sad part is, Bill O'Reilly isn’t being fired because he harassed women, it’s because we weren’t supposed to find out about it.

Ugh. We're all gonna get that awkward email where O’Reilly tells us his new gmail address.

How ironic ... Bill O’Reilly is getting paid by Fox to go away from them after Fox paid any number of women to go away from Bill O’Reilly ...

Cheer up Bill O'Reilly - there are still many companies that would love to hire you.
I mean, no companies that employ women, but still.

Reminder: Bill O'Reilly’s book on traditional, wholesome family values ​​came out a week ago

If Bill is fired, it will send a clear message to men in power: You will only get away for this for 20 years.
