Sanctimonious Former Fox News Cretan Bill O'Reilly Reported to Have Paid $32 Million to Make Sexual Misconduct Case Go Away

What the Hell is a “Nonconsenual Sexual Relationship”?

One of the most arrogant and nauseating personalities on Fox Fake News in the past has been Bill O'Reilly. It turned out that he has been a sexual predator and earlier this year Fox reluctantly fired him. Reluctantly because he made the network a lot of money, and what's a little sexual assault if millions can be made. But when millions were at risk, well out he goes.

But by April, the Murdochs decided to jettison Mr. O’Reilly as some of the settlements became public and posed a significant threat to their business empire.
Early that month, The Times reported on five settlements involving Mr. O’Reilly, leading advertisers to boycott his show and spawning protests calling for his ouster. About the same time, the O’Reilly settlements arose as an issue in 21st Century Fox’s attempt to buy the European satellite company Sky.

Now details of a new settlement have come out.

Although the deal has not been previously made public, the network’s parent company, 21st Century Fox, acknowledges that it was aware of the woman’s complaints about Mr. O’Reilly. They included allegations of repeated harassment, a nonconsensual sexual relationship and the sending of gay pornography and other sexually explicit material to her, according to the people briefed on the matter.

What the hell? Nonconsensual sex? Don't know what you call it but we probably think it is the
'R' word. And of course Fox News which knew about the settlement just turned a blind greedy eye.

It was at least the sixth agreement — and by far the largest — made by either Mr. O’Reilly or the company to settle harassment allegations against him. Despite that record, 21st Century Fox began contract negotiations with Mr. O’Reilly, and in February granted him a four-year extension that paid $25 million a year.

Fox News is Trumpie's favorite news outlet. Anyone see a reason why? Anyone?
