The far left was trying to take down Bill O’Reilly for years before he finally left FOX News earlier this year. Now it looks as though one of his accusers has a history of making false allegations.
Bill O’Reilly’s Accuser Arrested for False Allegation of Crime
A 2015 arrest by Detroit police of a key accuser of Bill O’Reilly for giving a false report of a crime has raised serious doubts as to her credibility.
In April, O’Reilly was fired from Fox News shortly after Perquita Burgess claimed the host made sexually suggestive comments to her, including calling her “hot chocolate.”
Burgess worked at Fox News for several weeks in 2008 as a clerical temp.
Shortly after an April 1st New York Times report detailed sexual harassment allegations by several women against O’Reilly, Burgess called a 21st Century Fox hotline claiming alleged workplace misconduct by O’Reilly. 21st Century is the parent company of Fox News.
At the time her charges emerged, O’Reilly’s program, “The O’Reilly Factor,” was already in the throes of an advertiser-boycott campaign being pushed by several liberal organizations.
The boycott started after the New York Times report that seven-figure settlements had been reached with five women who said O’Reilly had subjected them to inappropriate behavior. O’Reilly told the Times he signed off on the settlements to protect his family from controversy and had not admitted any guilt.
O’Reilly will probably return to TV at some point in the future. Especially if it turns out the campaign against him was just more targeting by the left.
