In the end, however, Noah encourages Fox News to keep railing about sexual harassment, and the kicker - "you don't even have to leave the building" - is sure to ruffle some feathers.

We can all condemn sexual harassment and assault no matter the politics or industry of the perpetrator, and while too many are still willing to come to O'Reilly's defense-including these same Fox News pundits-the movie industry, despite taking way too long to do it, has finally largely turned its back on Weinstein. Thank you so much for supporting me. It was the latest in a string of settlements made by O'Reilly, who was ousted from Fox News in April after they became public.

He has repeatedly blamed "political motivations" of the media and "financial motivations" of his accusers but on Monday night he found a new culprit.

The sexual harassment allegations had still ultimately cost Mr O'Reill his job at Fox News.

The presenter, who was sacked from Fox News in April, is thought to have made settlements with at least six women since 2004.

Last weekend, The New York Times published a meticulous investigation in which it detailed how O'Reilly, for years the leader of Fox News's prime time lineup, paid a $32 million settlement to Lis Wiehl, a legal analyst for the network.

"Perhaps it's his own history of harassment of women which has, as you both know, resulted in payouts to more than one woman, including recently, that blinded him to the folly of saying anything other than 'I am just so sorry for the women of this company who never should have had to go through that'".

While addressing the event, Nitish Kumar demanded that the Patna University should be given the status of a Central University. Later, speaking at the centenary celebrations of Patna University, the prime minister showered praise on the chief minister.

In what he said to the Times' about Bolling's son, O'Reilly clearly expected to find an understanding ally in his former Fox colleague.

"I believe it is beyond inappropriate for anyone to bring in the tragic death of my son Eric Chase Bolling", Bolling said in a statement to the New York Times. "The coroner has in fact indicated to us that that they believe it was an accident".

O'Reilly apologized to Bolling on Twitter Monday evening for his previous comments.

"Eric Bolling is a stand up guy who deserves the respect I have for him", O'Reilly added in a follow-up tweet. I can't explain it to you.

He also said that his parting with Fox News "was in no way connected to the tragic news of my son's passing".

O'Reilly has said previously that he wished he hadn't settled such cases.
