On Wednesday, April 19th, Bill O’Reilly, Fox News commentator and host of “The O’Reilly Factor” was fired. An internal investigation was conducted after several women filed sexual harassment complaints against the host.
Rupert Murdoch, who controls 21st Century Fox, and his two sons Lachlan and James, made the final decision to let O’Reilly go.
Recently, O’Reilly renewed his contract for $25 million. While it is unclear how much money O’reilly will receive for his departure, he will not receive the full amount of his contract.
