A woman who previously reached a settlement with Bill O’Reilly over harassment allegations is now suing O’Reilly and Fox News. She is suing for defamation and breach of contract because the public statements O’Reilly and the network made violated the settlement and painted her as a liar and politically motivated extortionist. Rachel Witlieb Bernstein, the woman, is one of six known to have reached settlements with O’Reilly against making accusations against him.
