Fox has confirmed that the same law firm that investigated claims of sexual harassment against Roger Ailes is now doing the same to Bill O'Reilly.
The law firm of Paul Weiss was the company that did the Roger Ailes investigation at Fox News.
Although Ailes "resigned" from Fox News and left with a boatload of cash, details of the investigation were never made public.
Now, FNC confirms that the law firm is looking into some claims against Bill O'Reilly.
Civil rights attorney Lisa Bloom appeared on CNN’s ironically named Reliable Sources and said that she received a call from the Weiss law firm alerting her to the investigation.
“I told them I really appreciate that and let’s get going as soon as possible,” she said. “I’m told that they are taking it seriously, and they are going to do the investigation that’s legally required of them.”
The NY Times previously reported that at least $13 million dollars in claims have been paid out to women that says they were harassed by the Fox News star.
Since the story, over 50 national advertisers have pulled their spots from O'Reilly's show. O'Reilly has remained silent on the matter. Fox News has only said that they back their star.
No word if Fox News will release any findings of this new investigation, but I would not hold your breath.
