Eric Bolling: 'Beyond Inappropriate' For O'Reilly To Mention My Son's Death

Eric Bolling: 'Beyond Inappropriate' For O'Reilly To Mention My Son's Death

Megyn Kelly spoke out today against her former Fox News colleague Bill O'Reilly on NBC News' "Megyn Kelly Today", Axios' Shane Savitsky notes.

'I wish I had more protection. Fox News announced last month that it had parted ways with Bolling. One month after the initial report, and just a day after Bolling's ouster, Bolling's son Eric was found dead.

In the latest episode of his web series, "No Spin News", O'Reilly said: "You know, am I mad at God?"

He later added: 'I can tell you this: In 20 plus years at the Fox News Channel I resolved three things and I only did that to keep my children safe'.

Once the host of the highest rated cable news show, "The O'Reilly Factor", O'Reilly's fortunes started to turn in April when the Times reported that he had paid about $13 million in settlements to five women during his tenure at Fox News.

But in his comments, made a few hours after Kelly's show, O'Reilly said he knew of no complaint against him from Kelly.

Bolling, who was sacked by Fox after an investigation into claims of sexual harassment, responded that it was "beyond inappropriate" for O'Reilly to bring up the death of his son, adding that "my parting from Fox News was in no way connected to the tragic news of my son's passing".

On Saturday, The New York Times reported that O'Reilly had paid the settlement to Lis Wiehl, a former federal prosecutor and Fox News legal analyst, who accused him of forcing her into a "nonconsensual relationship".

After the Times released its story, Mr O'Reilly's spokesman Mark Fabiani issued a statement saying the newspaper had "maliciously smeared" the author and former Fox anchor. However, after the initial revelation of O'Reilly's settlements, he was sacked from the network last spring. "I'd give up my life to protect them, but we actually thought people would uphold their oath, and what they agreed to, and they haven't".

She continued: "Perhaps he didn't realize his exact attitude of shaming women into shutting the hell up about harassment on grounds that it will disgrace the company is in part how Fox News got into the decade-long [Roger] Ailes mess to begin with".

The coroner's office would not comment on Bolling's statement or the cause of the death Monday. I can't explain it to you.

O'Reilly later said on Glenn Beck's radio program: 'I never had any problem with Megyn Kelly. Yeah, I'm mad at him.
