Don Lemon, Bill O'Reilly exchange Twitter barbs over Susan Rice story


06 April, 2017

A spokesperson for Hyundai told CNN that while it does not now have any spots on O'Reilly's show, following the "recent and disturbing allegations", it has reversed its decision to run any commercials in the near future.

Ailes, who has denied all of the allegations against him, was forced to resign from Fox News just one week after that interview.

His organization launched a petition to #DumpOReilly, arguing that the Fox News host "is a purveyor of sexual violence who has consistently used his platform to promote hateful and divisive rhetoric that attacks women, Black culture, and civil rights".

Trump's defense of O'Reilly sends a strong signal to women that the man at the top of our government is not particularly concerned with issues of corporate misconduct, sexual harassment, or sexual assault against women.

Rice has denied that she sought anyone's name for political reasons, and has called claims that she leaked identities "completely false".

Hyundai had a similar statement, "As a company, we seek to partner with companies and programming that share our values of inclusion and diversity", Hyundai said in the statement.

Several more advertisers have joined the list of defectors from Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor", bringing the total to around 20.

Drug maker Eli Lilly, trucking company Old Dominion Freight Line and life insurance provider Pacific Life also said Wednesday they would not advertise on the show. Jenny Craig said late Tuesday it had pulled its ads from the show.

"I think he shouldn't have settled; personally I think he shouldn't have settled", said Mr. Trump.

The New York Times reported on Saturday that settlements of $13m (£10.4m) were reached with five women who accused Mr O'Reilly of inappropriate behaviour. In a statement over the weekend, Fox News' parent company 21st Century Fox said it "takes matters of workplace behavior very seriously" but stood by O'Reilly.
