Bill O’Reilly Hit With Lawsuit

Mar 22, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Former Fox News fixture Bill O’Reilly, who left the channel last year, was sued for defamation by a former co-worker, TMZ reports.

“Former Fox News anchor Laurie Dhue is suing Bill for comments he made after Fox News paid settlements to 5 women … including Laurie, who reportedly got over $1 million,” TMZ reports. “In her suit, Laurie takes umbrage with Bill’s statement that he was fired over ‘completely unfounded claims.'”

The report adds: “Further, she says his claim, during a Matt Lauer interview, that he ‘never mistreated anyone on [his] watch in 42 years’ is not only a lie … it’s also damaging her career. As she puts it, no one’s going to hire a journalist who’s been labeled a liar.”

The report notes that Rachel Bernstein, a former junior producer at Fox, filed a similar suit against O’Reilly in December.

  1. Yeah, O’Reilly is a fixture…like a toilet is a fixture.

    Sue the pants off of this yo-yo.

  2. The only people that make money in a defamation lawsuit are the lawyers. If all O’Reilly said was the payments were, “completely unfounded”, she is going to have to prove they were in fact true. Then, unless she has irrefutable proof, it becomes a, “He said-She said” situation. And the lawyers win.
