Sexual Misconduct Allegations Prompt O’Reilly Dismissal at Fox News

April 21st, 2017

Due to numerous sexual misconduct allegations, popular Fox News television host Bill O’Reilly has been dismissed from the network. Since early April sexual misconduct claims surrounded the host, prompted by an April 1 New York Times article that alleged settlements between O’Reilly and five women who accused him of harassment and sexual misconduct were made. A memo issued by 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, stated that the dismissal decision was finalized after thorough review with the assistance of a law firm that investigated the misconduct complaints. Although O’Reilly’s show, The O’Reilly Factor, was highly rated and earned much revenue for the company, the host must relinquish his longtime post at Fox News. This week, guest hosts will cover the hosting duties for the show, and following that, fellow host Tucker Carlson will take over the time slot.

Recently, Fox News has contended with other harassment issues in the workplace including the latest lawsuit filed against founder Roger Ailes for similar allegations. Once a pattern of sexual harassment and misconduct is established in a work environment, it may drastic measures to alter a toxic work environment, so that the cycle of harassment is broken.
