Fox signed O'Reilly again knowing of new harassment settlement: report

Fox signed O'Reilly again knowing of new harassment settlement: reportBill O'Reilly, the Fox News commentator forced to resign in April, agreed to a $32 million sexual harassment settlement in January, and the network's parent knew about the deal when it gave him a new contract the next month, the New York Times reported on Saturday. The previously undisclosed agreement, at least the sixth involving O'Reilly or the company related to harassment charges against him, was "extraordinarily large" for such cases, according to the newspaper, which cited two people "briefed on the matter" as its sources. Twenty-First Century Fox Inc acknowledged that it had been aware of O'Reilly's settlement with Lis Wiehl, a former Fox News legal analyst, when it signed a contract extension with "The O'Reilly Factor" host in February.

Trump to release JFK files, subject to 'further information'By David Brunnstrom WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday that, subject to receipt of further information, he planned to allow the opening of long-secret files on the November 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy due for release next week. Politico magazine earlier quoted Trump administration and other U.S. government officials as saying the president would almost certainly block the release of information from some of the thousands of classified files, which the U.S. National Archives is scheduled to make public by an Oct. 26 deadline. The Nov. 22 1963 assassination cut short "Camelot," as the 1,000 days of the Kennedy presidency became known.

U.S. court blocks immigrant teen's bid to obtain abortion

U.S. court blocks immigrant teen's bid to obtain abortionA U.S. appeals court on Friday prevented an illegal immigrant teenager detained by the government from immediately obtaining an abortion, although it left open the possibility she could undergo the procedure within days. The decision by a U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit panel gave the government until Oct. 31 to approve a sponsor, who could help the 17-year-old obtain the procedure without the government's assistance. If the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) signed off on the sponsor, she "will be lawfully able, if she chooses, to obtain an abortion on her own," the court said.
