Fox News' Bill O'Reilly scandal over sex harrassment payouts deepens

Fox News' Bill O'Reilly scandal over sex harrassment payouts deepens

The Times reported that O'Reilly and Fox News have reached settlements with five women totaling at least $13 million.

AllState: The insurance company said "Inclusivity and support for women are important Allstate values".

"We value our partners and are working with them to address their current concerns about The O'Reilly Factor", Paul Rittenberg, Fox News executive VP advertising sales, said in a statement regarding the advertisers.

T. Rowe Price said in a statement, "We regularly evaluate our media buys to ensure alignment with our corporate values, and in light of the recent allegations we have made a decision to pull our upcoming ads from 'The O'Reilly Factor'". Assuming the New York Times report is accurate, it's understandable that automakers wouldn't want to appear supportive of a man who habitually harasses and disrespects women.

Wieser noted some advertisers had already chose to stay way following the sexual harassment scandals of the network's departed head, Roger Ailes, and newly concerned companies will wind up on other Fox News programs.

Fox News is ultimately a business and it makes money primarily from selling advertising spots during its programming.

Lugo made three appearances in the WBC for Team Puerto Rico and even started in the championship game against the United States. He logged another 11.1 frames for the Mets in Spring Training , managing a 5.56 ERA and 1.50 WHIP.

Fox News has what's being called a "major advertising revolt" on its hands in the wake of reports of sexual harassment settlements by the cable channel's star, Bill O'Reilly.

The financial fallout is growing as the sexual harassment scandal at Fox News spreads. Her lawsuit claims that Ailes - who O'Reilly has defended - would insist upon hello kisses before meetings and require her to bend over so he could look down her dress, reported the Associated Press. In July, then-network president Roger Ailes was forced out after multiple allegations of harassment were lodged against him. Wendy Walsh, a California-based psychologist and former television news reporter and anchor, auditioned on the air for a paid slot with a recurring role - "a very big opportunity", in her words. "Said no. I was sacked the next day with no explanation".

On Tuesday afternoon, Lemon responded to an O'Reilly Twitter post by saying, among other things, "False".

Fox News typically denigrates those who file suit or criticize its stars and executives, but it is now uncharacteristically subdued, in keeping with a promise made last summer that the culture of the network would change. "I don't think they connect the two of them at all". Those of us in the arena are constantly at risk, as are our families and children.

"Particularly in light of some of the accounts published over the last few days", the email reportedly said, "I wanted to re-emphasize the message we have been conveying at our training sessions for several months ..." O'Reilly has denied all allegations against him.
