The 20 Worst Political Scandals In History

WASHINGTON D.C. — Bill O'Reilly and Fox News are being sued by two additional former employees of the cable news network, who on Wednesday joined an ongoing defamation lawsuit brought by former Fox News producer, Rachel Wittlieb Bernstein.

The two women Rebecca Gomez Diamond, a former host on Fox Business Network, and Andrea Mackris, a former producer on O'Reilly's show allege O'Reilly and Fox News defamed them by depicting them as liars with a political ax to grind. Both women were paid settlements by the network after coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment against O'Reilly, according to a report by The New York Times.

Six known settlements totaling about $45 million have been paid out to resolve sexual harassment allegations against O'Reilly.

Since the allegations and monetary settlements became public, O'Reilly has claimed that the accusations have no merit, denied having ever mistreated anybody, and said his accusers were politically motivated.

"In fact, he mistreated both Ms. Mackris and Ms. Diamond and he is well aware of the irrefutable evidence of his harassment, abuse and mistreatment which caused him to settle their legal claims," states the lawsuit, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

An attorney for O'Reilly, Fredric S. Newman, said in a statement that the latest filing had "absolutely no merit, as we will show in court," adding, "The plaintiffs have drawn more attention to themselves than Mr. O'Reilly ever did."

The women are asking the court to release them from the non-disclosure and non-disparagement clauses of the settlement agreements, as well as for compensation for damages to their reputations, emotional distress, and attorneys' fees.

"They are tired of being smeared with lies by a bully who thinks that his victims are afraid to answer to them," said a lawyer for the women, Nancy Erika Smith, in a statement, as reported by The Times. "They are standing up for the truth, joining the many voices of brave women who are no longer tolerating abuse or being silenced."
