The Associated Press reports:
Bill O’Reilly says he’s being attacked for political purposes and that it’s been a “horror show” for him and his family. 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.
Former Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly said Monday 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.
