Bill O'Reilly and ex-Fox chief are hit with more allegations

Apr 05, 2017, 00:51

"The allegations are disturbing and, given the importance of women in every aspect of our business, we don't feel this is a good environment in which to advertise our products right now", says Ms Boland.

T. Rowe Price:"We regularly evaluate our media buys to ensure alignment with our corporate values, and in light of the recent allegations we have made a decision to pull our upcoming ads from The O'Reilly Factor", the global financial firm said.

In addition to the five women who have reportedly received settlements from either O'Reilly or Fox News totaling $13 million, two others have accused the conservative commentator of unwanted advances.

According to the suit, Shine retaliated against Roginsky "because of her complaints of harassment and ... because (she) refused to malign Gretchen Carlson and join "Team Roger" when Carlson sued Ailes for sexual harassment".

As fans may already know, yesterday, her lawyer slammed the man by claiming low ratings on O'Reilly factor were a result of the fact that Walsh was asked to stop appearing.

"If you dress beautifully, if you smile a lot, if you stroke the ego of the big dog, the one who feeds your family or could offer you a dream job - it is not your fault if you are sexually harassed", she said.

Ailes has denied those past allegations. Bloom said she wanted an investigation by New York City's Commission on Human Rights "into the culture of sexual harassment at Fox News".

There are women at Fox News who want to speak up.

The last few days have been pretty brutal for Fox News from a public relations standpoint, as the disgusting, rotten core of the news organization is becoming clearer and clearer.

"Nobody can silence me because my voice is not for sale", Walsh said.

But there is also hope: Some staff believe the ongoing federal investigation into Fox News - which centers on whether 21st Century Fox misled investors by hiding payments to Ailes' accusers - may force the company to take greater steps to combat sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior. "Nobody can buy my voice".

Earlier Monday, a Fox News contributor filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Ailes, saying she was denied opportunities after she rebuffed Ailes' advances and that current management sought to keep her complaints quiet.

A Fox News spokeswoman did not respond to several requests for comment. He said he had "put to rest any controversies" to spare his children. Through Monday, the stock had been up 12 percent over the past year, thanks in part to the large audience for Fox News, its most profitable network, and O'Reilly, its most popular host.
