Sexual predator Bill O’Reilly should not be rewarded with a $25 million parting gift Fox News President Bill Shine must go

April 20, 2017

Washington, DC – NOW President Terry O’Neill has released the following statement:

“Twenty-five million dollars for a sexual predator is obscene. Fox News needs to show Bill O’Reilly the door without a multi-million dollar payday. And that is not all. Roger Ailes’s hand-picked successor Bill Shine must go, and the Murdoch family must install leadership that actually will end the organization’s culture of sexual and racial harassment. Until that happens, no advertiser should waste their money on this troubled network.”
