Advertisers flee Bill O'Reilly's show but impact unclear

Don Lemon vs. Bill O'Reilly Made for TV waged on Twitter

Trump himself was the subject of multiple claims of sexual harassment during the campaign, and he denied them.

The scandal poses a problem for Rupert Murdoch-owned Fox News because The O'Reilly Factor is the cable network's most popular show, with four million viewers a night. "I don't think Bill did anything wrong". "And when you're a star, they let you do it, you can do anything". "Don't talk about Bill O'Reilly and sexual harassment suit or suits when you know nothing about the context and the content of what those suits are".

"I think they are unfounded just based on what I've read", Trump said of the accusations against Ailes.

Storms take aim at Alabama after killing two in Louisiana
The latest severe weather forecast from the National Weather Service indicates the line of storms should reach Dothan after 1 p.m. A couple of weather threats may be in store this week which includes the potential for several rounds of severe thunderstorms.

Paul Rittenberg, executive vice president of advertising for Fox News, told AFP that customers who had issued "reserves" had seen their advertising ranges allocated to other programs in the chain.

Nine months after Ailes' departure, Fox News is facing mounting public pressure from accusers, advertisers and women's rights groups to go further in addressing the allegations against O'Reilly.

As word of sexual harassment and verbal abuse allegations pours in, and high-paying advertisers pull out, Bill O'Reilly is receiving support from on high, specifically the top office inside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The National Organization for Women has called for him to be fired. In my more than 20 years at Fox News Channel, no one has ever filed a complaint about me with the Human Resources Department, even on the anonymous hotline.

Henry Holt, the publisher of O'Reilly's new book "Old School", has said it has "no comment at this time" on the allegations against its author.

In total, Bill O'Reilly and Fox News reportedly paid $ 13 million to the five women in exchange for their silence and the waiver of prosecution of the featured columnist. The combination of investigative journalism and the good ol' free market has done what the legal system was helpless to do - hold a celebrity with a massive platform accountable for allegations of rampant sexual harassment.
