FOX NEWS PAYOUT TO O’REILLY SAID TO BE ALMOST $25M
Bill O’Reilly, who was ousted Wednesday from his top-rated TV show on Fox News over allegations of sexual harassment, will receive almost $25 million for agreeing to leave the company, according to a person familiar with the matter. O’Reilly was one of the highest-paid TV show anchors, and this year struck a new deal that paid him between $20 million and $25 million, said the person, who asked not to be identified. The new contract limited any payout to one year’s salary, the person said.
Bill McKibben wrote an article last week in Britain’s The Guardian newspaper that called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a “disaster for the planet.”
