The Harassment Factor Ousts Bill O'Reilly from Fox News

"Now, Bill's broadcasting career may have hit a hiccup, and then exploded in a hail of blood and bone, but remember, Bill still has his books, he still has his rage and his Fox News payout, worth a reported $25 million", Colbert said.

But the departure of major advertisers, anxious about the knock-on effect of being associated with "The O'Reilly Factor", ultimately sealed his fate as the Murdoch family, which owns the corporation, flexes their might in a global marketplace.

One of the most known television hosts in the country, Bill O'Reilly, was sacked from Fox News Channel over sexual harassment allegations. "On the other hand, I am pretty joyful that Fox News has made women's rights more important than their bottom line".

In the wake of his removal, Fox has confirmed that Tucker Carlson will move from his 9 p.m. slot to O'Reilly's previously held 8 p.m. time starting April 24.

Perquita Burgess called a 21st Century Fox hotline earlier this week to report the incident and remained anonymous until she went public on "The View" Thursday.

The payout is less than the $40 million 21st Century Fox Inc. had to pay Fox News co-founder Roger Ailes to depart previous year after he was accused of sexual harassment.

His comments come amid differing reports about the trajectory of a United States strike group in the region. But it was now heading for the Western Pacific as ordered, it said. "Got to behave", said Trump.

CNN journalist Alisyn Camerota, who previously worked at Fox, said on the air Thursday that more women could come forward.

Fox executives lauded O'Reilly for his accomplishments and loyal audience - his ratings went up after the settlements were disclosed - but said little about the legal problems and alleged treatment of women.

O'Reilly has chose to fight back after getting fired and he slammed the network, saying that: "It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims".

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. The book, ironically, includes advice from O'Reilly on treating women with respect.

After Trump launched a sustained attack on popular Fox night time host Megyn Kelly, calling her a "bimbo", Ailes reportedly told the candidate, "Hey, Donald, settle the fuck down".
