Rep. Maxine Waters: O'Reilly needs 'to go to jail'

Over the weekend, The New York Times reported that Fox News had settled five lawsuits with female employees totaling $13 million on O'Reilly's behalf.

Speaking with Chris Hayes on the MSNBC show All In With Chris Hayes, Waters discussed both Bill O'Reilly and Donald Trump's alleged sexual harassment and said that both need to go to jail. "And it's catching up with them and you have over 30 advertisers who have taken away their advertising".

"I think the president brought it up himself, off the record, in some way", said Brzezinski, citing comments by one of the Times reporters.

And the other regular who says she stopped getting invited on to the show after she declined an invitation to O'Reilly's hotel room; she didn't sue, but she and her lawyer - who called Fox News "the Bill Cosby of corporate America" - have asked NY officials to investigate a pattern and practice of sexual harassment and retaliation at the company.

In July 2016, the network's former boss Roger Ailes resigned in the wake of his own sexual harassment controversy.

Henry Holt, the publisher of O'Reilly's new book "Old School", has said it has "no comment at this time" on the allegations against its author.




More than 20 advertisers have pulled their commercials from the program in response, though O'Reilly has yet to address the report on his program.

This flurry of negative stories is also playing out against the backdrop of a federal investigation into how 21st Century Fox disclosed settlements to various women alleging sexual harassment.

Ailes left Fox News last summer. Bill O'Reilly needs to go to jail. I guess, except of course, if it happens to be your friend, Bill O'Reilly, who is the one accused of sexually violating.

But O'Reilly, in a testament to his ratings dominance, has always been a magnet for premium advertisers.

Host Joe Scarborough said those comments showed Trump was completely unprepared, and he blamed both the president and his staff.

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly may have apologized for saying Maxine Waters had a "James Brown wig", but Wednesday night the California congresswoman performed the big payback.
