O'Reilly Out

April 20, 2017

It took 18 days from the release of that New York Times article, about a slew of sexual harassment claims against Bill O'Reilly, until the man once known as the face of Fox News was out of a job. Just hours after a handshake with the pope in Saint Peter's Square, O'Reilly was on a plane back home, as Fox announced he was officially out. O'Reilly is reportedly getting as much as 25-million dollars severance--the equivalent of one year of his salary. Former Boston Globe reporter Tina Cassidy, now an executive Vice President at InkHouse, and Michael Jeffries, an American studies professor at Wellesley College joined Jim Braude to discuss O’Reilly’s departure.
