Advertisers flee Bill O'Reilly's show but impact unclear

He also said that in his more than 20 years at Fox News, "no one has ever filed a complaint about me with the Human Resources Department, even on the anonymous hotline".

"The idea that Donald Trump has any understanding of the cases against Bill O'Reilly-there is no "there" there", Cillizza said.

The feud started on Monday when Lemon said that he would not "aid and abet" Donald Trump in his claims that he had been spied on by the Obama administration and also defended Rice against claims that she had asked for the names of Trump campaign members who had contact with Russian Federation for political reasons.

"I think he shouldn't have settled; personally I think he shouldn't have settled", the president added.

"There's background here. We all remember the "Access Hollywood" tape and the things he was saying on that tape, and some of the accusations leveled at him", the senior political reporter said of Trump.

Last week, Trump declared April 2017 National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, pledging that his administration "will do everything in its power to protect women, children, and men from sexual violence".




None of the 11 companies have withdrawn their money from Fox News.

Two of these settlements came after former Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes resigned from the company after a former Fox anchor, Gretchen Carlson, sued him for sexual harassment.

Lisa Bloom, the lawyer for one of O'Reilly's accusers, has called for an independent investigation of Fox News.

Asked by AFP, US carmaker Ford said it was not an advertiser for the Fox News channel.

The New York Times reported on Saturday that settlements of $13m (£10.4m) were reached with five women who accused Mr O'Reilly of inappropriate behaviour.

Henry Holt, the publisher of O'Reilly's new book "Old School", has said it has "no comment at this time" on the allegations against its author. The combination of investigative journalism and the good ol' free market has done what the legal system was helpless to do - hold a celebrity with a massive platform accountable for allegations of rampant sexual harassment.
