O’Reilly Promises Podcast Listeners They’ll Be ‘Shaken’ By New Information

In his first time speaking publicly since he was unceremoniously ousted from Fox News last week, Bill O’Reilly resumed hosting duties on his nightly podcast Monday.
O’Reilly opened his “No Spin News” podcast by promising his listeners that new details ― presumably ones redeeming him in his sexual harassment scandal ― are forthcoming.
“I am sad that I’m not on television anymore,” he said. “I was very surprised how it all turned out. I can’t say a lot, because there’s much stuff going on right now. But I can tell you that I’m very confident the truth will come out, and when it does, I don’t know if you’re going to be surprised, but I think you’re going to be shaken, as I am. There’s a lot of stuff involved here.”
He also introduced a new plan for the episodes, which had typically been around four minutes long. Going forward, Continue reading "O’Reilly Promises Podcast Listeners They’ll Be ‘Shaken’ By New Information"

Former Fox Anchor Alisyn Camerota Reveals Roger Ailes Sexually Harassed Her Too

Former Fox News host Alisyn Camerota is the latest woman to reveal that the network’s previous CEO Roger Ailes sexually harassed her.
In a sit-down Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” Camerota detailed a toxic work environment in which Ailes allegedly made inappropriate sexual comments, solicited her for sex in exchange for more career opportunities and singled her out for not promoting conservative values.
Camerota, currently a co-anchor on CNN’s “New Day,” told host Brian Stelter she’s been quiet about the harassment since leaving Fox News three years ago out of respect for her former employer and friends who still worked there, but “felt like there was a tipping point this week” with former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly’s ouster

“Roger Ailes did sexually harass me,” she said. “Let me be clear. Continue reading "Former Fox Anchor Alisyn Camerota Reveals Roger Ailes Sexually Harassed Her Too"

Bill O’Reilly Is Out At Fox News

Bill O’Reilly will no longer be employed at Fox News, 21st Century Fox said in a statement Wednesday. The decision comes after allegations of him sexually harassing female colleagues prompted protests outside network headquarters and a mass exodus from advertisers.
“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox New Channel,” the statement read. 
O’Reilly had said mid-April that he was taking a vacation. The official departure from Fox is an unceremonious end for the host, who had anchored the top-rated cable news show since its inception more than 20 years ago. His stunning exit mirrors that of former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, who launched Fox News in 1996 and abruptly left the network last summer amid widespread sexual harassment allegations.

Daily Mail Hits Another Low With Sexist Front Page

It’s 2017 ― can’t two female world leaders meet without their bodies making headlines?
London’s Daily Mail, in a preview for Tuesday’s front page, features a photo of U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May meeting with Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. The headline: “Never mind Brexit, who won Legs-it!”

The focus on women’s legs was a peculiar editorial choice, given the meeting’s importance for the future of Scotland and the U.K. May and Sturgeon met a day ahead of the devolved Scotish assembly’s resumption of debate over whether the country will again seek independence from the U.K. The assembly is expected to give Sturgeon the authority to seek a second independence referendum after the failure of a 2014 vote, Reuters reported. 
Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and others scoffed at the Continue reading "Daily Mail Hits Another Low With Sexist Front Page"
