US Rep. Maxine Waters: Bill O'Reilly 'needs to go to jail'

Posted April 07, 2017

A New York Times story published on Saturday reported that five women had been paid a total of $13 million in payouts - either from Fox News or from O'Reilly himself - related to sexual harassment claims they made against the television host.

Following tonight's edition of The O'Reilly Factor, Media Matters President Angelo Carusone repeated his call for Fox News to fire its top host: " Tonight, O'Reilly's remaining advertisers are faced with two questions: 1) Are they comfortable continuing to associate their brands with serial sexual predatory conduct?

Advertisers that stay with O'Reilly will need to explain to their customers and to their employees why the company comfortable associating their brand with serial sexual harassment.

Bill O'Reilly's latest book has a few words on how men should treat women.

O'Reilly, who has been hosting the breakout Fox News show since 1996, has ties to the Bay State.

Carlson, a longtime CT resident, left Fox News past year and filed a lawsuit against the network's then-CEO Roger Ailes, alleging sexual harassment and wrongful termination.

O'Reilly has lost dozens of advertisers over the scandal, though was praised by President Trump on Wednesday.

Carlson has become a leader in the anti-sexual harassment movement since filing suit against Fox news head Roger Ailes last summer, the beginning of a scandal that ultimately led to his resignation in July after other women came forward. Now, both of Roger Ailes' replacements at Fox News, Bill Shine and Jack Abernethy, have been accused of participating in Fox News' culture of sexual harassment.

The Times had revealed over the weekend that Fox News' parent company 21st Century Fox had paid settlements totaling $13 million to five women to keep quiet about alleged mistreatment at the hands of Fox's prime-time star.

Waters also criticized President Donald Trump for defending the Fox News star, saying his words of support are "coming out of the mouth of someone who has said some awful things about women".

Trump said that he didn't think O'Reilly should have settled with the women involved.

O'Reilly apologized last week for a glib remark about Waters' hair.

A spokeswoman for Fox didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
