O'Reilly still denies harassment after firing

President Trump's Super Bowl Sunday Interview With Bill O'Reilly

President Trump's Super Bowl Sunday Interview With Bill O'Reilly

Fox News and its parent company, 21st Century Fox, said Wednesday that O'Reilly would not return to his post after he left on vacation last week.

"I would like to address questions about Bill O'Reilly's future at Fox News".

He was scheduled to return Monday.

O'Reilly lost his job on the same day he was photographed in Rome shaking the hand of Pope Francis.

O'Reilly attributed the "unfounded claims" to his celebrity status stating that such allegations are "the unfortunate reality many of us in the public ... must live with today". I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers.

He will be replaced in the prime-time lineup by Fox host Tucker Carlson.

O'Reilly, who was with the network for 20 years, said he was proud of his time at Fox.

"Fox News is a strong brand and the only game in town for millions of loyalists", Peyronnin said. By comparison, Twenty-First Century Fox's last fiscal year, which ended June 30, 2016, brought in a total of $7.65 billion in advertising revenue.

People upset about O'Reilly's forced departure may quit their cable subscriptions, and Fox News would lose out on those fees, DiClemente said.

Park denies all the charges , saying she's the victim of a conspiracy and did not know about Choi's alleged activities. Choi and the company's top executive, Lee Jae-yong, were also under arrest and on trial.

"Getting rid of the old guard is a way to do that", said Dan Cassino, a professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University and the author of "Fox News & American Politics: How One Channel Shapes American Politics & Society".

"Paying settlements to cover up O'Reilly's egregious harassment was a cost of doing business as long as it was confidential", said attorney Debra Katz, founding partner at Katz, Marshall & Banks, which handles employment discrimination cases.

The network's most popular personality was sacked after a New York Time report earlier this month that said five women had been paid $13 million in settlements after they alleged sexual harassment and mistreatment.

In a letter to employees obtained by CNN, 21st Century Fox patriarch Rupert Murdoch said the decision "follows an extensive review done in collaboration with outside counsel". "If whatever comes into the new slot make sense for us, we'll evaluate it when the time comes".

The 2.32 million who watched Gutfeld on Friday was down 39 percent from the previous Friday and, alarmingly, was even lower than Tucker Carlson's audience at 9 p.m.

On Wednesday, after a number of Twitter followers thanked her for coming forward a year ago, setting off a chain of events that led to the ouster of Ailes and O'Reilly, she thanked them back.

O'Reilly's exit came nine months after his former boss, Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, was ousted following allegations of sexual harassment.

"It is the end of an era here at the Fox News Channel", she said. She also called on the company to release employees from mandatory arbitration and confidentiality clauses in their contracts.

O'Reilly changed the cable news game by putting his point of view and personality ahead of reporting.
