This could be the end for Bill O'Reilly

OCT. 1 2015 FILE

To catch you up on the latest in politically-related sexual harassment scandal: The New York Times recently reported that Bill O'Reilly, host of the The O'Reilly Factor on Fox News, has paid nearly $13 million in sexual harrassment settlements over the past 15 years.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday's show, O'Reilly told viewers that he always take a little R&R around Easter time.

Until now, O'Reilly, Fox News and parent company 21 Century Fox had said nearly nothing about the recent New York Times report that five women received about $13 million from O'Reilly or Fox News' parent company, 21st Century Fox, to settle allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior by O'Reilly.

At the end of his top-rated show The O'Reilly Factor, the host said he scheduled the trip last fall. A Fox News spokesperson confirmed to New York's Gabriel Sherman that he'd be back on April 24, leaving a good solid couple of weeks for them to figure out what to do with this shit sandwich they've been handed.

John Oliver has created a sexual harassment advertisement for beleaguered Fox News host Bill O'Reilly he is encouraging him to watch with President Donald Trump.

The diminution of financial supporters for O'Reilly's show also seems to be having an impact on the format of the program itself. O'Reilly has continually denied these claims.

McMaster said Russian leaders were supporting "a murderous regime" and their actions would dictate the future of U.S. The strike was the first time American forces targeted a Syrian government installation in the course of the war.

In a letter sent Tuesday to the state Division of Human Rights, civil rights lawyer and activist Bloom said Fox News' workplace is a "cesspool of sexual harassment, intimidation and retaliation", and should be investigated by the state. Instead, I'd like to focus on Fox News's response to the allegations, as to why it has so dragged its feet to do anything in response.

Are there any advertisers left supporting accused sexual harasser Bill O'Reilly?

"We have produced an ad to educate Donald Trump, to air during "The O'Reilly Factor" in NY and D.C.", Oliver said.

But Wendy Walsh, a former guest commentator on his show, said she was sacked from her role on the programme after she declined to accompany him to his hotel suite after a meeting.

Others argue this defense is less than compelling, given the fact that O'Reilly was by no means the only - or the most powerful - figure at the network to be hit with sexual harassment complaints. "I think he shouldn't have settled, personally".
