The attorney for Fox News host Bill O’Reilly claims left-wing activists are behind the attack against him and Deneen Borelli supports that theory.
Fueling public pressure are news reports that O’Reilly and Fox News settled sexual harassment lawsuits from women paying $13 million.
Fox News contributor Deneen Borelli defended Fox News and Bill O’Reilly in an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
A female Fox News contributor is defending star host Bill O’Reilly from mounting accusations that he harassed multiple women at the top-rated cable news network.
“When you’re on The O’Reilly Factor, you’re in and you’re out. When I was with him, I’d be going over my notes, and he’d be going over his, and there’s nothing inappropriate,” Deneen Borelli told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview Tuesday. “The one time he commented on me personally, he admired a cross I was wearing, saying he bought one for his daughter that was very similar to mine,” added Borelli.
The latest accusation against O’Reilly came Tuesday when a lawyer for an unidentified clerical worker said the host called the employee “hot chocolate” (she is black) and leered at her.
Importantly, Deneen feels left-wing activist groups are applying public pressure to oust O’Reilly because they hate Fox News.
