timberland bristol Former Fox anchor grapples with non
The former Fox News Channel host was interviewed by one time colleague Glenn Beck on this weekend’s story in The New York Times that Fox paid a $32 million settlement to a former legal analyst who had accused O’Reilly of harassment.
On Beck’s radio show Monday, O’Reilly said that he could not discuss specifics about former analyst Lis Wiehl’s case. He said the Times hates him and is intent upon keeping him out of the marketplace. There was no immediate comment from the newspaper.
O’Reilly also said that it was “incomprehensible” that his former colleague Megyn Kelly would speak out against him, saying that “I helped her dramatically” in her career.
He posted online an undated thank you note Kelly had written to him for giving a gift at a baby shower.
Former Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly says she complained to her bosses about Bill O’Reilly’s behavior after she had accused former Fox chief Roger Ailes of sexual harassment, and that the abuse and shaming of women has to stop.
Kelly, now on NBC, spoke Monday after it was revealed in The New York Times that O’Reilly had reached a $32 million settlement agreement with former Fox analyst Lis Wiehl shortly before O’Reilly’s contract was renewed in February. O’Reilly was fired in April.
