More allegations of sexual harassment has surfaced at Fox News—this time against the network’s top anchor, Bill O’Reilly. The New York Times has reported that in the weeks after Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes was ousted over allegations of sexual harassment by more than 20 women, Fox News paid anchor Juliet Huddy a six-figure sum to stay quiet about allegations Bill O’Reilly repeatedly sexually harassed her. A letter by Huddy’s lawyers says O’Reilly called her all the time and sometimes sounded like he was masturbating. The letter also accuses O’Reilly of trying to kiss Huddy and once opening the door to his hotel room—where he’d asked her to return a key—in his boxer shorts. The letter says that when Ruddy rejected O’Reilly’s advances, he retaliated against her both on air and at the office. Fox News and Bill O’Reilly have rejected the accusations.
