Bill O'Reilly Sued for Allegedly Defaming One of His Accusers

Bill O'Reilly Sued by Allegedly Abused Employee You Talked Trash On Me
Bill O'Reilly is being sued by a woman he settled up with in a harassment case, claiming he violated a clause in their agreement that prohibited him from talking trash about her.
In the same April 1 story, O'Reilly was quoted as stating that he was "vulnerable to lawsuits from individuals who want me to pay them to avoid negative publicity", and that the "worst part of [his] job is being a target for those would harm me and my employer".
"Knowing Ms. Bernstein and O'Reilly's other victims are afraid to speak out because he and Fox forced them to sign non-disclosure agreements, O'Reilly and Fox have made false and disparaging claims", the statement said.
The New York Times reports that Bernstein sued O'Reilly for defamation and breach of contract, arguing that his public statements about the settlement violated the terms of the agreement, which includes nondisclosure and non-disparagement clauses. Bernstein alleges that Fox News, through its parent company, 21st Century Fox, falsely told The Times that it had received no complaints to an anonymous company hotline because, she contends, there wasn't a hotline while she was employed there in 2002.
The complaint, filed in NY federal court, also addresses statements from Fox News this past April. She was constrained out of her activity at Fox News and paid a settlement in light of his abuse. She also says she made repeated complaints in person to the network's human resources department and to other senior Fox News executives. She accused him of forcing her into a "nonconsensual relationship". The statement by Fox News is deliberately misleading and in breach of Fox's agreement not to disparage Ms. Bernstein. O'Reilly has denied the claims. "It is cowardly to publicly attack these women knowing they have been subjected to contractual provisions requiring absolute silence".
Kushner Worried Mueller Will 'Get' Trump
Robert Mueller's team is apparently also looking into a number of meetings that Kushner tried to broker with foreign leaders. Then-candidate Trump disparaged the resolution one day prior to the United Nations vote and said it should be vetoed.
O'Reilly's lawyers did not respond to a request for comment. In it, Bernstein was personally identified as a "young producer" who, in 2002, was allegedly verbally assaulted by O'Reilly in the Fox newsroom. Mullin's law firm, Smith Mullin, also represented former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson, who alleged she was harassed by the late Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes.
