Earlier this month, the congresswoman said that OReilly needs to go to jail after The New York Times published its bombshell story on some$13 million that the former Fox News host and the network had paid in settlements to address sexual harassment and behavioral complaints about him. Days before the Times released its story, OReilly came under fire for making a racist and sexist joke about the congresswomanon Fox News morning show.
Unfortunately, he was a man who made tremendous sums of money, had a huge show, and really, theres something wrong with him psychologically, Waters told CNNs Anderson Cooperon Wednesday.
I hope he seeks some help, she added. And I hope that the women who have come forward feel good about the justice they are receiving.
The Times article prompted protests and anadvertiser boycott,which led to Fox News parent company, 21st Century Fox, reviewing the allegations against OReilly and severing ties.
Cooper asked Waters if she still thought OReilly needs to go to jail.
The day will come when rich men wont be able to buy their way out of this criminal activity, and they will go to jail, and they should go to jail, she said.
