Women's rights groups UltraViolet and National Organization for Women (NOW) released statements to The Hollywood Reporter following the news that Bill O'Reilly is departing Fox News amidst sexual harassment claims.
Since then, his show's ratings have been in freefall and advertisers have fled in droves.
Bill O'Reilly may no longer be a factor at Fox News. But even during his absence, his show remains Fox News's biggest hit - a sign of its status as the gravitational center of conservative television.
O'Reilly will be replaced in his prime-time lineup by Fox host Tucker Carlson. "Bill O'Reilly would like to hold himself out as the moral voice of America", she said.
The decision to cut ties with Mr. O'Reilly, a staple of the Fox News Channel since its launch in 1996, is a sea change for both the network and its parent company 21st Century Fox.
O'Reilly's pugnacious personality wasn't just an onscreen affectation, with one of the settlements going to a woman who complained about being shouted at in the newsroom.
Those same sources say that James Murdoch, the chief executive officer of 21st Century Fox, has been eager to get rid of O'Reilly in order to protect the company's reputation, and that Lachlan Murdoch, also an executive chairman of the company, has come around to his side. The network's founding CEO, Roger Ailes, resigned over the summer after more than 20 women came forward accusing him of sexual harassment and psychological torture over the course of his two-decade tenure. The elder Murdoch is said to be a defender of O'Reilly, but his sons pushed for O'Reilly's removal. O'Reilly's exit, which was first reported by NY magazine, follows that of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes, who was forced to resign in July after being accused of sexual misconduct by a number of women, including former anchor Gretchen Carlson.
All probably contributed to O'Reilly's exit. And so I have put to rest any controversies to spare my children.
Bloom, who represents another woman who has complained about O'Reilly's behavior, said she is not taking payment for the O'Reilly cases.
O'Reilly wants to return to say goodbye to his loyal audience, according to NY, but it's not clear if that will happen.
O'Reilly's picture was taken in the VIP line by a photographer from the official Vatican newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano.
O'Reilly, a Catholic, who previous year challenged the pope's views on immigration and promised to convince him of the need for reform, shook hands briefly with the leader of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics at the Vatican.
