Amid Backlash From Advertisers, Bill O'Reilly Takes A Spring Break

Amid Backlash From Advertisers, Bill O'Reilly Takes A Spring Break

After Fox News host Bill O'Reilly ended his Tuesday night show with a mysterious vacation announcement, MSNBC's "Last Word" host Lawrence O'Donnell gave an overview of next steps for the program now plagued with scandal. "Put it to good use", O'Reilly told viewers of The O'Reilly Factor at the end of his program. "Last fall I booked a trip that should be terrific, not going to tell you where it is, but we have a contest on billoreilly.com..."

In the year 2015, Bill O'Reilly's show on Fox News pulled in $178 million in ad revenue.

One source close to the matter told CNN that Rupert Murdoch, the executive chairman, might keep O'Reilly on air, but Murdoch's son James, 21st Century Fox CEO, is not keen to do that.

O'Donnell, who pronounced Fox News a "cesspool of sexual harassment and abuse of women", would love to be the beneficiary of such relevancy, should O'Reilly take him up on the dare... but don't hold your breath.

Paul Weiss also led the investigation of allegations against former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. The popular Fox News pundit announced his break from broadcasting at the end of The O'Reilly Factor on Tuesday night, pointedly noting that the family trip has always been in the works.

These lawyers are reportedly focused on harassment claims against O'Reilly by Walsh after she reported her allegations via the company's anonymous hotline.

But the journalist kept taunting and probing and it was then that Sushant lost his cool completely. From fairness cream row to the nepotism issue, the team answered nearly everything.

The British comedian bought ad space on The O'Reilly Factor to submit his widely recognized "Catheter Cowboy" in hopes of schooling Trump on sexual harassment. Just ask Fox News (which, according to The New York Times, has settled the claims of five women for $13 million) how that strategy has worked out for it.

"Because you should have taken it all the way; I don't think Bill did anything wrong", the President said, mere days after announcing April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

No one has filed a complaint about O'Reilly with the company's human resources department over the more than 20 years he has been at Fox News Channel, the host said in an 1 April statement.

But O'Reilly has not been abandoned by his audience.

Each night last week week, "The O'Reilly Factor" featured fewer minutes of paid advertising than it did the evening prior.
