Back in the United States, former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly secretly settled a sexual harassment claim for $32 million in January—the sixth and by far the largest such settlement during O’Reilly’s tenure at Fox. Despite the settlement, Fox News renewed O’Reilly’s contract in February, agreeing to pay him $25 million a year before mounting scandals finally forced him from the network in April. The settlement came after longtime Fox News contributor Lis Wiehl accused O’Reilly of repeated harassment, a nonconsensual sexual relationship, and of sending her unwanted pornographic emails.
