Amid controversy, Bill O'Reilly announces Baltimore tour date in September

Major advertisers have pulled out of The O'Reilly Factor, a Fox News broadcast, following sexual harassment claims against host Bill O'Reilly, says the New York Times.

The Times reported over the weekend that Fox and O'Reilly paid $13 million to five women who accused him of sexual harassment.

O'Reilly has largely stayed silent on the issue so far this week, except for a short statement on his website dismissing the allegations. "I don't think Bill did anything wrong".

Online TV company Hulu, which is part-owned by Fox's parent company 21st Century Fox, pulled its ads from "The O'Reilly Factor" earlier this week without comment.

As of Wednesday, 35 advertisers have distanced themselves from "The O'Reilly Factor", most asking Fox News to move their commercials into other programs on the channel, which has the highest ratings in cable. O'Reilly has denied wrongdoing and said he supported the settlements so his family wouldn't be hurt.

"They are two of a kind", Waters said.

That makes it a potentially attractive offering for the 70% of customers that Nielsen reports consume less than 5GB per month. Users will be able to switch between plans whenever they want without a penalty. "You're going to become a loyal customer".

During a segment on Fox & Friends, O'Reilly and several other Fox News pundits viewed video footage of Waters speaking on the House floor, where the congresswoman proceeded to question the patriotism of Donald Trump's supporters.

On Monday, Fox News contributor Julie Roginsky filed a lawsuit against Ailes and current Fox News President Bill Shine.

Even if O'Reilly is suspended from Fox, he will be more than fine due to his popularity as an author. "They have complained about a wide range of behavior, including verbal abuse, lewd comments, unwanted advances and phone calls in which it sounded as if Mr. O'Reilly was masturbating, according to documents and interviews".

Fox News aside, Waters had one final target, aiming her pointed remarks at the woman charged with advising her father on women-friendly policy, who told CBS Tuesday not to "conflate lack of public denouncement" of her father's misogynist words "with silence".

The president is a loyal Fox viewer, frequently tweeting out comments about its programming. The Murdochs aren't afraid to act quickly and without sentimentality: Gretchen Carlson filed her sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News chief executive Roger Ailes on July 6, and he was out of a job by July 21.

Separately, the securities fraud division of U.S. Attorney's office in NY is investigating how 21st Century Fox handled the scandal.
