O'Reilly's Firing Ends Long And Tumultuous Career

O’Reilly’s Firing Ends Long And Tumultuous Career

The day before Bill O’Reilly’s firing from Fox News, protesters gathered outside its New York City offices to demand the cable network pull the plug on the veteran political commentator. It was quite a fall for the number one cable news host. O’Reilly was on top of the ratings for close to twenty years. Now, he’s been fired in disgrace. O’Reilly sold himself as a beacon of Christian morality and family values. His reputation and brand have now been under cut by lurid details of how he propositioned and harassed young female staffers. O’Reilly has been the target of allegations stretching back to at least 2002, when he settled with a junior producer at Fox News. In 2004, another producer named Andrea Mackris filed a lawsuit saying she was sexually harassed and threatened by the then-married O’Reilly. According to Mackris, she had to suffer disgusting and perverted come ons from O’Reilly. She painted him as a lewd and lascivious monster. She was awarded nine million dollars in a cvil case and reportedly has audio tapes of all of Mr. O’Reilly’s come ons. Still, O’Reilly stayed number one another twelve years, until a piece in the New York Times forced Fox to fire him.
