Former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, who was let go by the news network on Wednesday following controversy surrounding sexual harassment claims against him made by several women, sent emails the day before his ouster to his legal team that highlight a last-minute effort to save his position, according to reports by Politico. 

The April 18 email exchange reveals that O'Reilly, in an attempt to secure his job at the network, tried to convince Fox News executives that he was not a liability, and a coordinated attack was being unfairly directed at him.

The day before Bill O ' Reilly was cut loose from Fox News after 20 years with the network, his handlers appeared to believe they had at least one more card to pull that might help save his job in the midst of a sexual harassment scandal engulfing the top-rated prime time host.

Bill O ’ Reilly really believes that there was a left-wing plot to get him out of Fox News and he went to some crazy lengths to try to save his job . Politico reported on the email that O ’ Reilly and his lawyers thought would save his skin

Before his ouster on Wednesday, he wrote in an email about correspondence with Mary Pat Bonner, who was working with Media Matters on a campaign to get advertisers to drop his show following the April 1 New York Times exposé about past sexual harassment claims against him. They succeeded, as dozens of companies pulled their ads from O'Reilly's nightly program leading up to his departure on Wednesday.

O'Reilly and his team considered the email from Bonner to be evidence that he was being victimized in a coordinated attack, which could possibly convince the executives at his network that he was innocent, yet the host decided against forwarding it to upper network management.

"If we show to Fox tomorrow, word will get out and the Thursday call may be cancelled," he wrote in the email, referencing a conference between O'Reilly, his reps and Fox News execs that was scheduled to take place Thursday but was later canceled following the news of O'Reilly's exit.

The email was sent to Politico on Wednesday by a member of O'Reilly's legal team, though a rep for the former Fox News host later said the email had been sent accidentally. 

"So no formal sending to Rupert [Murdoch] until after the call," O'Reilly wrote in the email, adding, "You all should know that I will not put up with much more from FNC."

Here’s one thing United will do differently after the infamous dragging incident .
United Airlines will no longer allow crew members to displace passengers who are already seated on a plane. Under a new policy, which is meant to avoid future public relations disasters like the one the world witnessed earlier this week, airline crews are required to check in at least an hour before a flight leaves, the airline company said. The purpose is to avoid having to find a seat for a crew member after all passengers have already boarded.The policy change comes nearly a week after a passenger was forcibly removed from a flight so a crew member could take his seat.
