Bill O'Reilly Accuser Criticizes Trump for Comments Defending Fox News Host

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.

Even though he denies the claims (which we suppose is better than blaming the alleged victims because of what they were wearing), many are calling for O'Reilly's ousting.

"Old School", published last week and in the top 10 on Amazon.com's best-seller list, includes a section titled "No means no" and urged those on dates to abide "the Old School tenets of respect and responsibility".

Advertisers were reacting to a report in the New York Times that revealed that five women received settlements from Fox News or O'Reilly after making accusations against him.

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".
