Bill O'Reilly's Leaked Email Shows Last-Minute Effort to Save His Job

Former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, who was let go by the news network on Wednesday following controversy surrounding sexual harassment claims against him made by several women, sent emails the day before his ouster to his legal team that highlight a last-minute effort to save his position, according to reports by Politico.

The April 18 email exchange reveals that O'Reilly, in an attempt to secure his job at the network, tried to convince Fox News executives that he was not a liability, and a coordinated attack was being unfairly directed at him.

Before his ouster on Wednesday, he wrote in an email about correspondence with Mary Pat Bonner, who was working with Media Matters on a campaign to get advertisers to drop his show following the April 1 New York Times exposť about past sexual harassment claims against him. They succeeded, as dozens of companies pulled their ads from O'Reilly's nightly program leading up to his departure on Wednesday.

O'Reilly and his team considered the email from Bonner to be evidence that he was being victimized in a coordinated attack, which could possibly convince the executives at his network that he was innocent, yet the host decided against forwarding it to upper network management.

4. Unbelievable statement



Remember when he said an abducted child was having a lot more fun under his abductors than his parents?

6. Just clarifying - it wasn't "leaked" it was deliberately sent to Politico but later said should not

have been sent.
