This is a bombshell — and a HUGE blow against Bill O'Reilly's tenure at Fox News.
The New York Timesreleased a report on Saturday morning and even the title itself was so strong, it trended on Twitterfor much of the morning: Bill O'Reilly Thrives at Fox News, Even as Harassment Settlements Add Up.
In the report, the Times found that Fox and O'Reilly have paid out at least $13 million to at least five women who have in turn agreed not to pursue sexual harassment or sexual assault allegations or litigation against the network's #1 TV host.
As we reported, after Erin Moran passed away this weekend, former costar Scott Baio wrote a touching post on Facebook praising the actresses' "contagious smile, warm heart, and animal loving soul." According to Harrison County, Indiana authorities, the thespian who played Joanie Cunningham most likely died due to complications from stage 4 cancer.
Sadly, Baio -- for some stupid reason -- decided to do a 180 after paying tribute to his Happy Days love interest.
