"Corporate culture there obviously has to change," Palin told CNN's Jake Tapper. "Women don't deserve, they should not ever have to put up with any kind of intimidating workplace."

Palin continued: "At the same time, if a woman believes that she is being intimidating and harassed, she needs to stand up and do something about it, not stick around for a paycheck for years and years and years and then after the fact complain about what she went through."

Some of O'Reilly's accusers had also reportedly endured harassment for extended periods of time before filing lawsuits.
