When the New York Times published its story about O'Reilly, the cable news network's parent company responded, "Notwithstanding the fact that no current or former Fox News employee ever took advantage of the 21st Century Fox hotline to raise a concern about Bill O'Reilly, even anonymously, we have looked into these matters over the last few months and discussed them with Mr. O'Reilly".

Bernstein did not allege she was a victim of sexual harassment in the lawsuit. None of the others have said anything publicly about their claims. O'Reilly screamed at Bernstein in front of other employees, according to the New York Times.

Her lawsuit also claims that O'Reilly's statements that no complaints were filed against him are "deliberately misleading".

O'Reilly would make other comments including to The Hollywood Reporter, which is cited in today's lawsuit.
