21st Century Fox released a statement Saturday in which it said it "takes matters of workplace behavior very seriously" and stood behind O'Reilly's denial of the merits of the claims. At one point host Bill O'Reilly threw to a commercial break only to return after a single one-minute ad.
Despite the fact that it ironically happens to be National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, there will clearly be no real protection for women from the Oval Office.

The Jenny Craig defection shows how dire the situation has become for Fox News.
The congresswoman also wanted to know where Ivanka Trump was when the president was defending O'Reilly.
Rep. Maxine Waters may have come up with the most appropriate title to describe the environment at Fox News.
"She's supposed to be the one that's standing up for women", Waters forcefully said.
On Wednesday, Trump told the New York Times that he thought that O'Reilly was a "good person" and that "personally, I think he shouldn't have settled". The Fox News anchor whose O'Reilly experience yielded a $1 million payout.
During the United States election campaign, Trump had defended then Fox News chief Roger Ailes, who also was accused of sexual harassment. They're not wanting to do business with them anymore because of the way that they have created this record of sexual harassment. O'Reilly hasn't admitted any wrongdoing.
"I didn't hear a word she said", O'Reilly had said of Waters. The Times reports complaints ranged from verbal abuse, inappropriate comments, romantic advances and "phone calls in which it sounded as if Mr. O'Reilly was masturbating".
