Maxine Waters Calls Out Fox News As A 'Sexual Harassment Enterprise'

21st Century Fox told the Times that O'Reilly "denies the merits of these claims", and Fox News executive vice president of advertising sales Paul Rittenberg said on Tuesday that the network is working with advertisers. Amazingly, O'Reilly's once-certain future at the network is now in doubt.

Walsh said she believed "a small group of men of a certain generation" are teaching the country "that women are sexual objects". "Bill O'Reilly needs to go to jail".

O'Reilly, who recently caught flack for his racist and sexist remarks about Waters' hair, is now fielding deserved scrutiny and criticism after a New York Times report surfaced a number of sexual and verbal harassment suits women have filed against O'Reilly and Fox News.

The Times story said more than 60 people were interviewed, including current and former employees of Fox News or its parent company and people who know the women behind the complaints or are close to O'Reilly.

She said that advertisers that stay on the show could trigger consumers to boycott their products or services. Day by day, the number of companies to distance themselves from O'Reilly has ballooned.

Questions about free college tuition in NY
So now you have to live in NY , which according to smartasset.com, has a cost of living 68.8% higher than the national average. What does it mean, indeed - especially for current, future and prospective State University of NY at Fredonia students.

A company spokesperson confirmed the decision in an email. The few ads that did run didn't come from any big recognizable names such as Mercedes-Benz and Advil, who were among the more than 40 brands that chose to pull their ads earlier in the week. The news has sparked an exodus of advertisers telling Fox they didn't want to be involved in O'Reilly's show. The alleged payouts have prompted at least 38 advertisers to pull spots from "The O'Reilly Factor".

The pair discussed a number of topics such as Steve Bannon's removal from the National Security Council, the White House's lack of credibility - and President Donald Trump's declaration of support for Bill O'Reilly, the Fox News host recently accused of serial sexual harassment.

Stay on topic - This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand.

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.
