Fox to investigate sexual harassment claim against O'Reilly

The actors of "Saturday Night Live" found a way to brutally mock Fox News host Bill O'Reilly and President Donald Trump in the same sketch over the weekend, taking the duo to task for the sexual assault allegations waged against them.

"I told them I really appreciate that and let's get going as soon as possible", she said. After being told she no longer works at Fox, Baldwin asked, "Did she get the check?"

Bloom's announcement comes days after she and the accuser, Wendy Walsh, recorded themselves reporting O'Reilly to Fox News' corporate complaint hotline.

Walsh was one of the women featured in a recent New York Times exposé regarding allegations of sexual harassment made against O'Reilly as well as the almost $13 million that O'Reilly and Fox had paid to settle the claims out of court.

O'Reilly has denied all allegations, and the network has stood by him, even after a New York Times report on the settlements last week started an advertising exodus from his show.

Summary: Attorney Lisa Bloom said 21st Century Fox will investigate the sexual harassment claims against Bill O'Reilly.

"Gathering evidence is just crucial if you find yourself in this type of a situation", she said, "because we still live in a he-said, she-said culture, unfortunately, and they're not going to believe you".

Omaha will be the volleyball championship site for the fourth time since 2006, the most of any host location. A pair of NCAA championship events previously hosted at the CenturyLink Center are coming back in 2020.

"Nobody can silence me, because my voice is not for sale", she said.

Before he went to commercial, O'Reilly made sure to thank his remaining sponsors, "dog cocaine" and "prescription-strength Eliquis", after several advertisers dropped him this week because of the allegations.

But O'Reilly isn't the first member of Fox who received Trump's support.

When compared to the same week in 2016, O'Reilly's primetime program was up 28 percent in total viewers and 42 percent in the key demographic that advertisers covet most, according to Nielsen Research.

The statement also suggested that O'Reilly is a target of harassment claims because of his prominence and the revenue he rakes in for the network helming the top-rated cable news show in the country.

So much so, in fact, that they asked the actor to tag in to play another despised figure on the show at the exact same time, as Baldwin delivered his very best impersonation of Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly as he interviewed himself as Trump.
