    The New York Times is reporting that Fox News Channel executives quietly arranged a settlement agreement with a Fox News employee who alleged that Bill O’Reilly had sexually harassed her.

    The settlement happened, Times reporters Emily Steel and Michael S. Schmidt write, “in the weeks after Roger Ailes was ousted as the chairman of Fox News in July, amid a sexual harassment scandal.”

    The New York Times says that the website LawNewz.com first reported Monday afternoon on the settlement arrangement involving the allegations against O’Reilly.

    The employee, Juliet Huddy, had been a Fox News personality, the New York Times writes. From their report:

    “The employee, Juliet Huddy, had said that Mr. O’Reilly pursued a sexual relationship with her in 2011, at a time he exerted significant influence over her career. When she rebuffed his advances, he tried to derail her career, according to a draft of a letter from her lawyers to Fox News that was obtained by The New York Times.”

    The Times report adds that “in exchange for her silence and agreement not to sue,” Huddy was paid “a sum in the high six figures, according to people briefed on the agreement. The agreement was between Ms. Huddy and 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News. The company and Mr. O’Reilly’s lawyer said her allegations were false.”

    Looks like FOX has a sex ogre problem. Ailes was forced out. What about O’Reilly.

    Bill O’Reilly had a divorced settlement back in 2011. And just recently lost a bid for custody of his children. How much more longer can he stay at Fox News.

    As long as he has ratings and revenue.

    As his supporters don’t believe anything that doesn’t come out of Bill’s own mouth or others on Fox News, the dumb, the lying, and the hypocrisy, shall continue.
