Bill O'Reilly accuser appears on 'The View'

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.

In exchange for agreeing not to return to his anchor chair, accused serial sex harasser Bill O'Reilly will be compensated as much as $25 million, the equivalent of one year's salary at Fox News, according to The New York Times.

Fox News parent Twenty-First Century Fox Inc announced on Wednesday it had parted ways with the star cable news host, ending his more than 20-year career, following allegations of sexual harassment from a number of women.

It is not known exactly how Fox News will handle O'Reilly's exit or whether he would be allowed to say goodbye to viewers on the air, according to the NY magazine report.

To date, sexual harassment related settlements made by Fox are over $85 million.

O'Reilly was sacked by Fox on Wednesday after a report earlier this month that five women were paid $13 million in settlements after they alleged he has sexually harassed or mistreated them.

The NBA playoffs have arrived, and here's 10 things to watch
The Indiana Pacers are in the playoffs for the sixth time in the last seven years and have won their last five games. Paul George is averaging 23.7 points and 6.6 rebounds while Jeff Teague is averaging 15.3 points and 7.8 assists.

O'Reilly, who started at Fox News in 1996, was considered the network's top asset.

"Really this was a storm that the Murdoch family wanted to weather, but ultimately, they realized they couldn't", Sherman said. On Wednesday, Bill O'Reilly called the allegations against him unfounded and Roger Ailes has denied the allegations against him in the past.

What happened to O'Reilly was about the $13 million in settlements Fox News paid over more than a decade to silence all those women. "Now I don't say anything, you know, that could be remotely taken - you know, because obviously I'm a big target and any kind of a thing like that stigmatizes you whether you're guilty or not, doesn't it?" They knew Megyn Kelly had complained to management about those comments.

Hoover, a political commentator who worked as a contributor on O'Reilly's show for a handful of years, opened up about her former boss and the culture of Fox News on CNN's New Day on Thursday morning.

O'Reilly was sacked Wednesday amid a string of sexual harassment allegations. He should have been fired then. "My contract wasn't renewed, that's um, that's the line". It appears O'Reilly and Aile's contracts gave them carte blanche to treat Fox News like their own private men's club.
