Palin on O'Reilly: 'Culture Had to Change at Fox'

Palin on O'Reilly: 'Culture Had to Change at Fox'

The contract reportedly allowed Fox News parent 21st Century Fox to dismiss him if new allegations of sexual impropriety surfaced. They had years to address serial sexual harassment at Fox News.

For 21st Century Fox, the network's parent company, payouts related to sexual harassment allegations at Fox News now total more than 85 million U.S. dollars. So far - and it's only been one day - the Nielsen data affirms the idea that Fox is much bigger than any single star, even a star of O'Reilly's wattage.

O'Reilly' severance is the latest payment in what has turned out to be a costly situation for Fox News. "As the sign outside the Fox News building reads, 'nobody moves this man.' Nobody, except for the janitor who scraped him down this morning".

O' Reilly's show, "The O' Reilly Factor", has been the most watched program on Fox News and was coming off the highest-rated first quarter in its history, averaging 4 million viewers, according to Nielsen.

Citing a person with direct knowledge of the commentator's contract, NBC News reported that O'Reilly's annual salary amounts to about $25 million.

Labour leader says UK election 'establishment vs people'
He said it was a "rigged system" set up by a "cosy cartel" which he said was "set up by the wealth extractors for the wealth extractors".

Early Thursday, a giant poster of O'Reilly displayed prominently outside of 21st Century Fox's New York City offices was boarded up. "It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims", he said.

The so-called "Stop O'Reilly" campaign was well-publicized on social media, with the help of Media Matters president Angelo Carusone, who famously spearheaded similar grassroots efforts that targeted former Fox News host, Glenn Beck.

The former governor added women in such situations should "take a stand and get out of the place - or blow the whistle on whoever is the perpetrator doing the bad stuff so that the culture will change".

Last summer, Roger E. Ailes, the chairman of Fox News, left the network with an exit package worth $40 million after several women made sexual harassment allegations against him.
