"A report published in The New York Times on Saturday detailed allegations from five women that O’Reilly, one of Fox News’s most high-profile hosts, harassed them, including making unwanted sexual advances. (Two of the settlements and allegations had been previously reported.) The Times reports that $13 million was paid to the women so that they would not pursue charges or talk about the allegations.
O’Reilly has denied the charges, saying he was targeted unfairly due to his high profile. The cable channel has stood by its host, whose program is one of the network’s major revenue drivers and brings in millions of nightly viewers."
