One of the highest paid media personalities in the US, Bill O’Reily has finally quit Fox News after the network announced Thursday that it was cutting ties with him.

His contract was severed after mounting allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior forced the mother company -Fox 2oth Century  to end his program, ‘The O’Reilly Factor,’  which aired at prime time on week days.

O’Reily, who has reportedly been earning over 20 million dollars a year is without a doubt the biggest star in Fox Network’s its 20-year history.

“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations,” parent company 21st Century Fox said in a statement, “the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel,”  read as statement released by Fox.

O’Reilly’s has had a long reign as the top-rated host in cable news.

On April 1st,  The New York Times reported that the embattled talk show host or Fox had paid $13 million to settle five cases against him alleging sexual or other harassment.

Soon after, more than 50 advertisers withdrew from his prime-time show.

Fox News reported that 21st Century Fox thereafter asked a law firm to investigate a complaint from a woman who claimed that O’Reilly “disinvited”  her from his show after she turned down his invitation to visit his hotel room.

On Wednesday, Access Hollywood reported that O’Reily had earned Fox over $400 million in a span of few  years.

O’Reilly received the news of the termination of his contract while in Vatican, where, according to aphotoi posted by Reuters, he h]met with Pope Francis. Below is a copy of the letter sent to him by the Mr Rupert Murdoch, the owner of the Fox Company.

 

The letter terminating the network’s most popular host in a letter on Wednesday afternoon  was also signed by his two sons, Lachlan and James, who reportedly pressured their dad to take the action.

Soon after an unapologetic O’Reilly sent out the following message:

‘Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant news network in television.

‘It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today.

‘I will always look back at my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers.

‘I wish only the best for Fox News channel.’

Alarm over fake condoms ahead of Valentine’s Day

Published

on

As Kenyans prepare to join the rest of the world in marking Valentine’s Day, Population Service Kenya has raised an alarm over fake Trust Studded condoms circulating in the market.

Such replicas cannot pass a simple test of ensuring you enjoy safe sex without getting pregnant or contracting the sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/Aids.

Even for men, there’s need to be extremely cautious when buying the Trust Studded condoms lest you land in big trouble for making your partner conceives by using fake condoms produced by rent hunters.

Population Services Kenya says it kicked off a country-wide safety sensitisation campaign on February 10 to educate consumers on unique product markings to enable them identify the right Trust Studded condoms in the market.

In an advert placed in the local dailies, PS Kenya issued a directive to the public to be aware of the appropriate labeling of the Trust Studded brand of condoms.

“Look out for the marks of quality on our packs to ensure that you are purchasing authentic Trust packs,” read the advert.

PS Kenya has also advised the public to stay “vigilant and attentive to product unique quality markings and the exact positioning on the packs which include the name Studded, the mark of quality (triple tested) and quantity of condoms in the pack.”

“The transmedia campaign will continue to sensitise consumers and also seek to drive awareness throughout the distribution channels in order to dissuade the unscrupulous individuals from misleading Kenyans to purchase counterfeit condoms that do not guarantee quality. It is unfortunate that these individuals are making attempts to erode the efforts made as a country in achieving health impact through distribution of high quality condoms,” added PS Kenya.

To ensure you buy the authentic Trust studded condoms which are the most affected by the imitation network, the distributors have in the local dailies urged that we all look out for particular marks of quality on the packets.

The original condom packs have the brand label ‘Studded’ embossed at the middle of the packs and appears in bold, a feature the counterfeiters are trying hard to poll into their kill-for-money venture. Also missing on the fake contraceptives are the distributors’ contact details and an additional distinctive features that PSK has warned users have to be on the lookout for to ensure they get the most out of their quest for protected sex.

Health experts warn that such faux products not only expose one to risks such as bursting during sex but are also made of substances that are harmful to the human body. Most of the cheap lubricating oil such underground manufacturers use produces a deadly smell, a nauseating one.

In 2013, detectives stormed a Chinese illegal production line producing millions of counterfeit brand-name condoms. These were close to perfect in appearance, imitations of top brands including Durex, Contex and Jissbon.

A whole 4.65 million already packaged prophylactics and another 1,100 pounds of unpackaged condoms were found at the smelly scene and all these would end up in markets that thrive in fakes and low cost products.

Interestingly, these products were being placed on the country’s most popular online shop to capitalise on people who fear physically asking for condoms across counters.

The factory could release at least 20,000 a day barely four months in operations and had hired dozens to lubricate and package the latex.

On the Nairobi streets, with the recent surge of fake Trust studded condoms in the market, don’t just be keen on fake devices, carefully seek authenticity proves on the condoms at pharmacies, kiosks, sex toy retailer shops and even supermarkets.
