Top Advertiser To Stay With O'Reilly Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations


21 April, 2017

O'Reilly, whose comments about Water's hair were widely condemned, is now in the media spotlight after The New York Times reported that he and Fox paid five women $13 million to settle harassment or other allegations against the star pundit. The New York Times reported that five women received settlements totaling $13 million.

O'Reilly has denied the allegations, claiming that his celebrity status makes him vulnerable to such things.

The pair discussed a number of topics such as Steve Bannon's removal from the National Security Council, the White House's lack of credibility - and President Donald Trump's declaration of support for Bill O'Reilly, the Fox News host recently accused of serial sexual harassment.

"I don't think Bill did anything wrong", the president said. "And it's catching up with them and you have over 30 advertisers who have taken away their advertising".

This prompted Congresswoman Maxine Waters, D-California, to lash out at the two and the "sexual harassment enterprise" Fox News in an NBC interview Wednesday night.

One early holdout, weight loss and diet company Jenny Craig, announced late Tuesday that it suspended its ad buys on O'Reilly's program, joining such major brands as Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, Lexus, Allstate Insurance and Coldwell Banker that have moved their commercials out of the show.

After all, Trump is a man who refuses to speak ill of anybody who has spoken favorably of him - whether it's right-wing hack O'Reilly or Russian President Vladimir Putin, who helped orchestrate the biggest attack on America's democratic process in history.

Specifically, "Bill O'Reilly needs to go to jail".

There was a time when Bill O'Reilly could spin news of the sort piling up this week against him.

Gretchen Carlson said Thursday that thousands of women have shared their stories with her since her lawsuit became public last summer.

"We value our partners and are working with them to address their current concerns about the O'Reilly Factor", Paul Rittenberg, executive vice president of sales, said in a statement to Business Insider.

Of course, by Trump's standards, "The O'Reilly Factor" host is a tremendous guy, maybe even the most tremendous person he knows.
