In a lawsuit, an ex-staffer alleges the late Fox News chief Roger Ailes, shown above, sexually abused her for years. She is also suing former top Fox executive Bill Shine, alleging he enabled Ailes.
Suspended Fox News host Andrea Tantaros says the executives tried to intimidate her by arranging to have her private communications spied on and fed to Twitter accounts acting on the network's behalf.
For the Murdochs, who control Fox News as part of a larger media empire, getting rid of Bill O'Reilly is a move to regain full control of the European broadcasting giant Sky in a $14.6 billion deal.
When he announced his vacation Tuesday, O'Reilly carefully noted it had been planned for a while. Still, the trip comes at a conspicuous time for O'Reilly, who is facing sexual harassment allegations.
Fox News contributor Julie Roginsky says in the complaint that the network's past chairman, Roger Ailes, made unwanted sexual advances while leading her to believe that a big promotion would follow.
