21st Century Fox investigating Bill O'Reilly sexual harassment claims

20 April, 2017, 10:12 | Author: Benny Bass

Afterward, O'Reilly went to commercial break, but acknowledged that "more than 60" advertisers had pulled their ads from his show after recent allegations of sexual assault were leveled against him.

While defending Donald Trump on the air, Fox News has been privately using the Trump Access Hollywood tape to train their own employees about sexual harassment. Some allegations began last summer and have led to the downfall of Fox News' former chief, Roger Ailes. "I'm told that they are taking it seriously, and they are going to do the investigation that's legally required of them".

The bit opened with Baldwin's O'Reilly asking an apprehensive reporter (Cecily Strong) how Susan Rice, national security adviser to former President Barack Obama, responded to allegations of misconduct.

Walsh, who was a guest on The O'Reilly Factor, alleges that O'Reilly reneged on a job offer to her after she refused to join him in his hotel suite in 2013.

In July, the Murdoch family, owners of 21st Century, hired a NY law firm to probe whether longtime Fox News president Roger Ailes had sexually harassed former host Gretchen Carlson.

Summary: Attorney Lisa Bloom said 21st Century Fox will investigate the sexual harassment claims against Bill O'Reilly. The New York Times story said $13 million was paid to settle sexual harassment claims at the company.

"Yeah like when she said "no" did her eyes say "yes"?"

"Ok, but when she said "no, ' what was her vibe?"

Walsh said O'Reilly barely acknowledged her when she returned to appear on "The O'Reilly Factor".

That's when O'Reilly brought on the one guy who is "unimpeachable on all female issues" to come to his defense: none other than Trump, also portrayed by Baldwin.

Since the New York Times published its article, advertisers have been pulling their support from The O'Reilly Factor. Independent studies show he generates more than $100 million in advertising revenue per year for TV's top-rated cable news network.

But eventually, the fallout over the matter will have a cost. Six of them were "per inquiry" ads, which means payment for them is usually based on how many people call a toll-free number to purchase the product or service being advertised.
