The former host of ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ could not survive the sexual misconduct scandals.
Bill O’Reilly – the right-wing political commentator who propelled Fox News to the cable juggernaut it is today – will not be returning to his primetime show or the network – New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman reported on Wednesday.
The Murdoch family – which owns 21st Century Fox – decided to let O’Reilly go after the cable news host was rocked with allegations of sexual harassment.
Earlier this month Fox News announced that O’Reilly re-upped his contract with the network for $20 million per year.
Former and current Fox News employees have alleged sexual misconduct against O’Reilly and have told harrowing tales of the greater misogynistic culture at Fox News.
