It was discovered that Fox News paid $13 million total in settlements to five women who accused anchor Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment. The harassment included “verbal abuse, lewd comments, unwanted advances and phone calls in which it sounded as if Mr. O’Reilly was masturbating.”

On Tuesday, CNN anchor Don Lemon brought up O’Reilly’s scandal after the Fox News anchor accused him of not covering a story.

“CNN’s Don Lemon refuses to cover Susan Rice story,” O’Reilly tweeted. The CNN anchor shot back on Twitter:

“False. I did not refuse to cover the story. But I did cover your sexual harassment allegations. Did you?”
