In media news, former Fox News star Bill O’Reilly will receive a payout of about $25 million—equivalent to one year’s salary—after he was fired on Wednesday amid revelations that over a half-dozen women accused him of sexual harassment. O’Reilly’s payout follows a $40 million severance package paid to former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes last year, after he was accused of sexual harassment by more than 20 women.
