On Wednesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck predicted that Bill O’Reilly is in his last 24 hours at Fox News and took a look at the swirling accusations against conservative media figures. Similar to Roger Ailes in 2016, O’Reilly has been accused of sexual harassment by women he’s worked with over the years. Companies have since been pulling their ads from “The O’Reilly Factor.”
After Ailes, then-CEO of Fox News, was accused of sexual harassment by former “Fox & Friends” anchor Gretchen Carlson, Glenn didn’t know what to think. But as multiple women came forward to corroborate her story, Glenn said he had to believe them.
“When Megyn [Kelly] came out and said, ‘Yeah, it happened to me,’ now I had two people that I went, ‘OK it’s Gretchen and Megyn; I believe them.”
Following sexual harassment allegations from at least seven women, Ailes resigned last year after two decades at Fox News.
While the accusations against Ailes seemed credible, Glenn cautioned the audience about immediately assuming that similar accusations against O’Reilly are also true. O’Reilly has settled with several women who accused him of sexual harassment over the course of his career; however, settlements don’t necessarily equal guilt. As an example, Glenn talked about a lawsuit he recently settled in Boston even though he knew he was right.
