O’Reilly Accuser Blasts Fox News For Keeping Ex-Anchor’s Name on Show: ‘What a Disgusting Company’

Former Fox News host of 18-years Juliet Huddy is furious with her former network in light of the revelation that Bill O’Reilly is still an executive producer for one of their shows.

The Daily Beast noticed on Sunday that O’Reilly’s name appears in the credits of Fox News’s historical documentary series, Legends & Lies. O’Reilly used to narrate the show in its previous seasons, but even though he’s no longer part of the network, he’s still credited as the program’s executive producer.

O’Reilly was fired by Fox News after it was reported that the network paid out millions to settle sexual harassment claims by multiple women at the network. Huddy is one of the women who accused O’Reilly of misconduct — she reportedly received $1.6 million — and she’s not happy that Fox News still hasn’t completely detached itself from him.

Huddy also claimed that while NBC washed its hands of Matt Lauer, the longtime host who was fired following a wave of sexual misconduct allegations were made against him, Fox News “JUST CAN’T SEEM TO LET THEIR RESIDENT BAD BOY GO”:

Fox News responded to the O’Reilly show credit by noting the network has not resumed a working relationship with the former star anchor, and that the series was already in production before his ousting.

Huddy recently appeared on Megyn Kelly Today to speak out about her claims against O’Reilly and the network.
