O'Reilly Struck $32M Settlement In January Over Harassment Allegations

Demonstrator Matt Mitchell holds a sign outside of the News Corp. and Fox News headquarters April 19 in midtown

O'Reilly, of course, was removed from his perch as the king of Fox's primetime lineup in April after The New York Times's Emily Steel and Michael S. Schmidt reported on five previous settlements with women who had accused the host of sexual harassment.

Carlson slammed her former network a day after the New York Times reported executives were aware of the settlement when it resigned the since-fired O'Reilly in February to a four-year, $100 million deal. "His new contract, which was made at a time typical for renewals of multi-year talent contracts, added protections for the company specifically aimed at harassment, including that Mr. O'Reilly could be dismissed if the company was made aware of other allegations or if additional relevant information was obtained in a company investigation", 21CF added.

He made suggestive remarks to her on the air for years afterward, such as recommending that she dance at a strip club, and her other complains against O'Reilly "included allegations of repeated harassment, a nonconsensual sexual relationship and the sending of gay pornography and other sexually explicit material to her, according to the people briefed on the matter", the Times reports. When Wiehl first appeared on the show in 2001, O'Reilly said he had gotten her the job and that she owed him for it, to which she replied, "No, no, no".

Gretchen Carlson, who received $20 million a year ago after claims against Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, tweeted her take on the matter: "Nobody pays $32m for false allegations - nobody".

O'Reilly claimed to the New York Times that he "never mistreated anyone" and claimed he could "prove it". O'Reilly's record-breaking contract came just months after the Murdochs pushed out Roger Ailes, who built the network into the cultural force it is today, over allegations of Ailes's own longtime pattern of alleged sexual impropriety. O'Reilly denied doing anything improper in an interview with the Times.

Mr. O'Reilly ultimately left Fox News three months after reaching the settlement with Ms. Wiehl following news reports surfacing detailing a handful of similar, previously undisclosed allegations of sexual harassment raised by several of his female colleagues.

"This is covering up, this is enablers, this is shutting up the victims", she said".
