How does Bill O'Reilly still have a job?

20 April 2017, 10:32 | Winston Chapman

O'Reilly recently found himself defended by Trump, with no apparent intel on the subject, after it came to light the anchor has faced numerous accusations of sexual harassment from female colleagues over the years.

Overall for the week of April 3-7, Fox News placed five programs in the basic cable Top-10 ratings rankings for total viewers, with "The O'Reilly Factor", "Hannity", "Tucker Carlson Tonight", "The Five", and "Special Report with Bret Baier" making the cut. Paul Weiss is the same firm that investigated former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, who was ousted from the company over harassment allegations. And when I say best "political comedy", it's not which sketch elicited the biggest laughs.

"This week, several women have come forward and accused me of offering them exciting opportunities here at Fox News", Baldwin, as O'Reilly, said.

When she declined, O'Reilly allegedly became hostile and told her "forget about any career advice I gave you, you're on your own", the Times said.

Bloom told Stelter that after learning of the investigation Friday, "I told them we really appreciate that and let's get going as soon as possible". O'Reilly seemed to be protected by the network, but that was when they were able to keep the allegations against him private.

Although he is uninformed about the situation O'Reilly is in, he says he just had a "loose hunch", adding that "I'm more familiar with this case than, say ... health care". Shortly thereafter her appearances ended.

"So you asked her point blank and she said ...", O'Reilly asks. Cable news executives often use minute-by-minute Nielsen ratings to determine the appeal of segments and guests. Notwithstanding the fact that no current or former Fox News employee ever took advantage of the 21st Century Fox hotline to raise a concern about Bill O'Reilly, even anonymously, we have looked into these matters over the last few months and discussed them with Mr. O'Reilly. So far, 60 sponsors have said they would stop advertising on the program.

But the Fox's response has not calmed the situation. Six of them were "per inquiry" ads, which means payment for them is usually based on how many people call a toll-free number to purchase the product or service being advertised.
