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

Bill O'Reilly's show on Fox News is in big trouble: Advertisers are fleeing due to news that the network has had to reportedly pay at least $13 million to protect him from sexual harassment lawsuits, mostly from women who worked with him.

Earlier on Wednesday, President Trump told the New York Times that O'Reilly was "a good person" and that he "shouldn't have settled" with his accusers.

In response to the Times report, O'Reilly's said Saturday that he is "vulnerable to lawsuits" because of his high-profile job.

Appearing on MSNBC, the congresswoman said she was "not surprised" the president defended O'Reilly, citing Trump's history of lewd comments about women. "Because you should have taken it all the way; I don't think Bill did anything wrong".

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

The Hoyas were just 29-36 over the past two years, prompting the school's fan and alumni base to advocate for a change. Each time, however, he has been passed over and has gone back to being an assistant coach again, waiting for his turn.

Waters said Trump and O'Reilly "are two of a kind". "Factor" was the most-watched show in cable news both Monday and Tuesday this week. But television is a different animal and, at 67 years old, it is not like there is any real long-term benefit for advertisers to hang in there with O'Reilly or jump back on the bandwagon after the dust settles (which, in this short-attention span universe, might be as soon as next week). Angie's List spokeswoman Cheryl Reed said the company has a contract with Fox that doesn't specify which Fox program its ads will air on, but the company, which offers crowd-sourced reviews of local businesses, has no plans to change its ad buy. The increase comes just days after O'Reilly wrapped up a quarter in which he broke the record for total viewership on a cable news show.

Fox has "treated women very badly", Waters said, adding that she supported a criminal investigation of the matter.

Separately, the securities fraud division of U.S. Attorney's office in NY is investigating how 21st Century Fox handled the scandal.

The president is a loyal Fox viewer, frequently tweeting out comments about its programming. Other Fox male executives have been accused of inappropriate behavior, as well, in a corporate culture former female employees say tolerates sexual harassment and other sexual offenses and intimidates claimants.
