21st Century stock rises after O'Reilly firing

21st Century stock rises after O'Reilly firing

"Men - and I know men real well, being a manly man - are barbarians".

"Well, that's impossible and I'll tell you why", O'Reilly said. "They're just barbarians, ok?" And if they get a come on, at all, by the woman who they feel is attractive, then they're in.

O'Reilly was sacked Wednesday amid a series of such sexual harassment accusations.

Seeing O'Reilly lose his job because of actions against women felt very cathartic, she said. The two sides eventually settled for a reported $9 million. Over 50 advertisers boycotted "The O'Reilly Factor" over revelations O'Reilly and Fox paid $13 million to settle lawsuits by five women who accuse O'Reilly of sexual harassment and inappropriate sexual behavior.

Fox News parent Twenty-First Century Fox announced on Wednesday it had parted ways with the star cable news host, ending his more than 20-year career, following allegations of sexual harassment from a number of women.

"And the hairs rose on the back of my neck because I knew the grunting and groaning was going on", Burgess said.

O'Reilly is out at Fox but influence endures; career too?
Articles in New York magazine, The Washington Post , and the New York Times told their riveting, often disgusting, stories. Colbert went on to say that he and O'Reilly didn't see "eye to eye on anything", but that having him gone was a huge deal.

At the time, Steel tweeted out O'Reilly's threat against her.

O'Reilly's attorney, Marc Kasowitz, issued a statement after she made her complaint on Tuesday, and said that "it is outrageous that an allegation from an anonymous person about something that purportedly happened nearly a decade ago is being treated as fact, especially where there is obviously an orchestrated campaign by activists and lawyers to destroy Mr. O'Reilly and enrich themselves through publicity-driven donations". "Some are calling it the politics of sexual harassment".

In the latter stages of the interview, O'Reilly expressed disappointment that men were no longer permitted to make sexual jokes in the workplace - a change he said "changed my life". "You have also been loyal, and we can't tell you how much that means to everyone on The Factor".

Burgess said that a few weeks later, he would continue to be near her desk and would "leer at me and looking at me up and down".

"Women, that's a big power source for them and I think some women use it ruthlessly", he added as he brought the segment to a close.
