Fox News will investigate Bill O'Reilly harassment claims, lawyer says

Fox News will investigate Bill O'Reilly harassment claims, lawyer says

Alec Baldwin gave fans a double dose of topical comedy on this weekend's Saturday Night Live, reprising his Donald Trump impersonation, along with a spot-on spoof of embattled Fox News host Bill O'Reilly's sexual abuse allegations.

Asked about Bloom's comments Sunday, a 21st Century Fox spokesman told CNNMoney that the company "investigates all complaints and we have asked the law firm Paul Weiss to continue assisting the company in these serious matters". Fortunately, the investigation by 21st Century Fox may be divided in some way from the bias of their child network.

Bill O'Reilly faced a massive advertiser boycott this week after the New York Times reported his $13 million in harassment and retaliation settlements.

China envoy in South Korea amid talk of US action against North
North Korea will bolster its capacity to protect itself from "reckless moves", the spokesman was quoted as saying. During the conversation, Trump briefed Abe on his just-concluded meeting with Xi.

The O'Reilly Factor is the most popular cable news TV program in the first quarter of 2017.

The O'Reilly uproar has reignited a problem Fox had hoped to contain after forcing out Fox News' founding boss Roger Ailes last summer in the wake of allegations of sexual harassment against him. So this is - it's one thing - you may hear more cases where the employer turns a blind eye and tries to deny it - but this is such, I hate to say the word, but sort of proactive bad work, bad activities by Fox News.

Walsh told The New York Times that O'Reilly had promised to get her a job at Fox News, but he had changed his mind after she rejected his advances. He said people like him are "vulnerable to lawsuits" from individuals who wants him to pay them to avoid negative publicity.

Did you tune into tonight's O'Reilly Factor on Fox News?

"I'm told that they are taking it seriously, and they are going to do the investigation that's legally required of them", Bloom told CNN's Brian Stelter.

So, Oliver said "Bill O'Reilly needs advertisers and Donald Trump needs to understand sexual harassment". So it's really about a larger culture, and I think its something that we're trying to interrogate as well - is that it's important to know that workplace harassment is endemic and underreporting, it happens across the board.
