The View Destroys Fox News and O’Reilly: ‘Where the Hell Was HR?!’


The View kicked off Hot Topics Tuesday with a segment on Bill O’Reilly and Fox News. After playing a clip from O’Reilly’s web show in which he said he was “mad at God,” the ladies blasted the disgraced former cable news ratings king.

“He says he’s mad at God,” Joy Behar said. “Bill, God is mad at you.”

The panel then cast its ire upon Fox News following the bombshell revelation over the weekend that the network re-signed O’Reilly earlier this year even after it knew about a multi-million dollar settlement in a sexual harassment lawsuit against the ex-Factor host.

“If you are aware as an employer that someone has settled five, six lawsuits against them for sexual harassment, is it your job as an employer to tell the female employees that they may be sitting next to a sexual predator?” said Sunny Hostin.

“We talk about H.R. all the time,” Whoopi Goldberg added. “Where the hell was H.R.?!”

The panel ultimately agreed that Fox News was culpable.

“The only thing bigger than these men,” said Sara Haines, “are the companies protecting them with these nondisclosure acts.”
