Former Fox News producer claims O'Reilly broke agreement

The New York Times reports that Bernstein sued O'Reilly for defamation and breach of contract, arguing that his public statements about the settlement violated the terms of the agreement, which includes nondisclosure and non-disparagement clauses. Bernstein reached a settlement with Fox in 2002 after those repeated complaints.
Bernstein complained in 2002 that she was mistreated by O'Reilly when she worked for the network, and ultimately reached a settlement agreement with the network. She claimed O'Reilly was extremely abusive toward her. She was constrained out of her activity at Fox News and paid a settlement in light of his abuse.
"In fact", states the complaint, "Ms. Bernstein repeatedly complained to Fox Human Resources, Bill Shine, and other Fox executives, about Mr. O'Reilly's mistreatment and both defendant Fox News Network LLC and O'Reilly knew that before making the statement above".
In the New York Timesstory, O'Reilly said he paid Bernstein and other women who complained because he's "vulnerable to lawsuits from individuals who want me to pay them to avoid negative publicity".
The New York Times revealed in April that Bernstein left the system in the wake of documenting a protest about him "raging into the newsroom" and shouting at her.
O'Reilly made several statements to other media outlets, telling The Hollywood Reporter that "no one was mistreated on my watch", which portrayed the plaintiff as a liar, the suit alleges. "The statement by Fox News also violated the Confidentiality Clause in the Agreement". "Mr. O'Reilly is fully committed to supporting our efforts to improve the environment for all our employees at Fox News".
"O'Reilly presented himself as a victim of a vast conspiracy and not a serial abuser and coward hiding behind the non-disclosure agreements he forced his victims to sign", her attorney Neil Mullin wrote in a complaint. The lawsuit claims, "This is false".
O'Reilly, who lost his job at Fox because of harassment claims, has emphatically denied wrongdoing.
Bernstein said there was no hot line in existence at the time of her employment. Mullin's law firm, Smith Mullin, also represented former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson, who alleged she was harassed by the late Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes.
However, Fox News and O'Reilly have not responded so far.
