Apparently, he slammed her for being a ‘liar’ after she made sexual assault claims against him. Former FOX News star and co-worker of Bill O’Reilly, Laurie Dhue has decided to sue the man for defamation!
The woman says that all of the comments O’Reilly made while being interviewed by Matt Lauer were completely false!
More precisely, she claims that his statement that he ‘never mistreated anyone on [his] watch in 42 years’ is definitely not true and it damages her credibility as a journalist.
Naturally, not a lot of employers would want to hire someone seen as a liar.
What is even more shocking is that Dhue revealed her picture has been used in some online ads that feature Bill O’Reilly and are meant to promote male enhancement pills!
In addition to that, O’Reilly also sued former politician Michael Panter for $5 million back in October of last year, accusing him of ‘defamatory and false’ sexual harassment claims against him.
The said claims were made by the politician’s girlfriend at the time.
Panter took to social media to write: ‘My ex’s career was dependent on staying in O’Reilly’s good graces. For that very reason, she was hesitant to tell me some details — likely out of fear than I might jeopardize her career by getting involved. Sometimes information would slip out … she would come home stressed and reference O’Reilly, and only after some prodding would she reveal he asked her out, adding that she shouldn’t tell anyone – that other women at the network would question it or be jealous.’
After many sexual harassment allegations were made against O’Reilly, in May of 2017, Fox News got hit with a massive investigation.
As a result, the man was fired from the host job he’d been having for three decades.
