Another Bill O'Reilly accuser

Jeff Christensen / AP

A former clerical worker at Fox News has alleged that Bill O'Reilly sexually and racially harassed her according to attorney Lisa Bloom, who is representing the unnamed accuser. The woman claims O'Reilly used to "leer at her" and "grunt at her like a wild boar." He also used to call her "hot chocolate," Bloom told The Hollywood Reporter

The other side: Former Fox News producer Joe Muto weighed into the reports on Twitter: "As much as it pains me to defend him, this is bullshit. I sat 15ft from his office door from 2007-2012. No one like this woman was nearby."

Why this matters: There are now seven women accusing O'Reilly of sexual harassment, and with advertisers abandoning "The O'Reilly Factor," the Murdochs are reportedly "leaning toward" taking him off the air.
