Bill O'Reilly Fox Payout $25 Million

Former Fox News anchor, Bill O'Reilly, will leave the network with as much as $25 million, equivalent of one year's salary, according to multiple media reports, including The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times.

NBC News reports O'Reilly had a four-year contract that guaranteed a $25 million annual salary and Fox would be able to fire him for causing controversy harming the network.

The announcement caused critics to respond with outrage, upset with the fact O'Reilly could leave with so much money after multiple harassment allegations were made against him.
