21st Century Fox investigating O'Reilly harassment claims

Fox says that it will be looking into the claims made by former "O'Reilly Factor" guest Wendy Walsh who confirmed the allegations made by so many other women when she made a complaint of her own to Fox's misconduct hotline last week.

"I told them I really appreciate that and let's get going as soon as possible", said the attorney.

O'Reilly then addresses Zimmerman (played by Cecily Strong), "Malia, you spoke to former Obama security adviser Susan Rice and you told her I believe she illegally leaked the names of Trump's media to the people, correct?"

But when he asked if she still loves him, the woman said, "You're my president!"

The probe comes after Lisa Bloom, a civil rights attorney and advocate, called the network's corporate hotline last week with her client, Wendy Walsh, to make a complaint against O'Reilly.

"Apparently several women have come forward and accused me of offering them exciting opportunities here at Fox News", he says. He has denied all the allegations.

The connections O'Reilly has also put his accusers in a tough position; O'Reilly is known friends with President Donald Trump, who said on Wednesday, "I don't think Bill did anything wrong". The New York Times has reported O'Reilly and Fox News have paid out $13 million to settle cases against the conservative pundit.

O'Reilly himself recently said that he had never been the subject of human resources complaints at Fox News, and a spokesperson later said that the firm was already on retainer with the network.

President Trump is coming to the defense of Bill O'Reilly, even as the list of companies pulling ads from his Fox News show is growing.

More than 60 advertisers have pulled their advertisements from O'Reilly's program.

The statement also suggested that O'Reilly is a target of harassment claims because of his prominence and the revenue he rakes in for the network helming the top-rated cable news show in the country.

While corporations have made a stand against the Fox News' host, it is unclear if O'Reilly will face the same repercussions as Ailes.

She said she had been hearing from even more women about O'Reilly in the past, and there might be more claims to come.
