Will Bill O'Reilly survive advertiser defections?

While not many people have publicly supported O'Reilly since the New York Times revealed that he had paid almost $13 million in five separate sexual harassment settlements, Trump asserted that he does not believe the allegations against the Fox News star.

These are just a few of the more salacious revelations from a New York Times investigation published Saturday, which found that the network has settled with five of O'Reilly's accusers to the tune of $13 million.

If advertisers are truly serious about condemning "all forms of harassment" and advertising only in environments that highlight "the importance of women", it should be unthinkable to continue to advertise on Fox News - a network that has shown time and time again that it doesn't take sexual harassment seriously. Personally, I think he shouldn't have settled ... because you should have taken it all the way.

He said people like him are "vulnerable to lawsuits" from individuals who wants him to pay them to avoid negative publicity. Walsh and her lawyer had a two-hour interview over the phone with four lawyers representing Fox News.

Do you think Fox News should fire Bill O'Reilly?

"I think he's a person I know well".

Even with the defection of more than 50 advertisers, Bill O'Reilly is weathering his latest sexual-harassment scandal. She previously said her greatest desire is to lead President Donald Trump to impeachment.

As the Constitution requires, the president must come to Congress to authorize any further use of force against the Assad regime. Bernie Sanders is scheduled to appear in Cleveland on May 1 at the Global Center for Health Innovation.

That approach is similar to the one the company adopted during Ailes' struggles last summer, which culminated with him being sued by former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson for harassment. What must all of these empowered women think of how their company tiptoes around O'Reilly's multiple allegations of sexual harassment? O'Reilly has always been its most lucrative personality. O'Reilly has denied wrongdoing and said he supported the settlements so his family wouldn't be hurt. In recent days, suits have been filed accusing a former Fox comptroller of racist behavior and former Fox News chief Roger Ailes of sexually harassing a current Fox News contributor. Now, the National Organization for Women is leading a push to get O'Reilly fired. Glenn Beck was essentially forced out at Fox when his advertising dried up following a sustained campaign against him that eventually enlisted some 200 companies, said Rashad Robinson, executive director of the liberal advocacy group Color of Change. They need to go to jail. The news has sparked an exodus of advertisers telling Fox they didn't want to be involved in O'Reilly's show.

O'Reilly said in a weekend statement that being a well-known public figure makes him vulnerable to lawsuits and that the settlements were made to put "any controversies" to rest.

Separately, the securities fraud division of U.S. Attorney's office in NY is investigating how 21st Century Fox handled the scandal. While O'Reilly is apparently immune to dishonor (and to fleeing sponsors, as long as his faithful viewers tune in), the corporation's reputation is on the line.
