O'Reilly out over harassment allegations
20 April 2017, 01:39 | Laverne Osborne
His trip came as Fox News Channel's parent company 21st Century Fox is investigating sexual harassment allegations against him.
The Times reported on April 1 that about $13 million has been paid out to a total of five women who have accused O'Reilly of sexual harassment.
The announcement came just hours after the combative and right-wing television personality was photographed shaking hands with Pope Francis in St Peters Square on holiday in Rome. Bill O'Reilly has lost his job at Fox News Channel following reports that five women had been paid millions of doll.
O'Reilly's departure is a major blow to Fox - which lost its top executive Roger Ailes past year in another sexual harassment scandal.
There was also a crucial phone call from an O'Reilly accuser to Fox.
The National Geographic channel says it has made no decision about its development of Bill O'Reilly's book "Killing Patton" following O'Reilly's exit from Fox News.
That multiplying effect gave O'Reilly a role in a seismic change, he said.
O'Reilly's show, "The O'Reilly Factor", is the top-rated show on Fox News. While Fox's two biggest rivals, CNN and MSNBC, would not be interested in hiring him, conservative upstarts like Newsmax or One America News (OANN) could be.
Rounding out the Fox prime-time lineup, "Hannity" remains at 10 p.m. EDT.
O'Reilly has largely remained quiet in the face of these accusations, though he has rejected them and said he agreed to the settlements only to protect his family.
Even though at least one of the harassment cases against O'Reilly dated back more than a decade and was widely reported then, the accumulation of cases outlined in the Times damaged him much more extensively.
"I understand how hard this has been for many of you", Rupert Murdoch said in the memo.
As the news rolled into Twitter, users reacted accordingly.
That will be Tucker Carlson, whose show is moving to the 8 p.m. slot on Fox. The statement from 21st Century Fox is coming after growing public resentment about O'Reilly's alleged behavior.
As quickly as Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch announced Tuesday that O'Reilly was a goner, news of Carlson taking over his time slot shook the Internet.
"The O'Reilly Factor" has been hosted by a rotating cast of substitutes in his absence, including Dana Perino, former spokeswoman for president George W. Bush.
Liberal groups which had long opposed O'Reilly, and had been pushing advertisers to join the boycott, celebrated the news Wednesday.
In a Wednesday memo to employees signed by all three Murdochs and provided to The Associated Press, Fox again emphasized its commitment to a workplace culture of "trust and respect".
