CNN’s Stelter: ‘Why Does O’Reilly Still Have a Job’ Given Sexual Harassment Claims?
Remember, Ailes was sued for sexual harassment by ex-anchor Gretchen Carlson. Then, many other women came forward as well, including Megyn Kelly. Ailes was pressured to resign but the problems of FOX go deeper. There's now a federal grand jury investigation. Other unrelated lawsuits are pending.
And O'Reilly is sort of the center of the FOX universe, the biggest star with the biggest ratings on cable news, responsible over the course of his 20 years on FOX for hundreds of millions of dollars in profit. O'Reilly says that makes him a big target. He is denying the claims against him.
But all of this begs the question, if Ailes was dismissed because of numerous harassment claims against him and FOX say this kind of behavior would not be tolerated anymore, then why does O'Reilly still have a job, the biggest job on cable news? We will talk to one of the attorneys for an alleged victim coming up.
