This could be the end for Bill O’Reilly
Vox ------- If you believe Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, he’s just going on a preplanned vacation. But if you look at the swirling disaster around him, this could be the end for The O’Reilly Factor. O’Reilly on Tuesday announced a vacation until April 24. A spokesperson for O’Reilly told Variety that this was planned for months: “The arrangements, including airline and hotel reservations, for this vacation were made last October. The vacation involves a group of people, and the timing coincides with the period Mr. O’Reilly often takes off in and around his children’s spring break.” But the timing isn’t good for O’Reilly. Over the past few weeks, he has faced mounting criticisms for sexual harassment allegations against him. Emily Steel and Michael Schmidt reported for the New York Times that O’Reilly or Fox News have paid roughly $13 million since 2004 to five women who worked for O’Reilly or appeared on his show and later complained about his behavior. Two of the settlements reportedly came after former Fox News Chair Roger Ailes was dismissed from Fox News in another sexual harassment scandal.
