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

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

A spokesperson for Hyundai told CNN that while it does not now have any spots on O'Reilly's show, following the "recent and disturbing allegations", it has reversed its decision to run any commercials in the near future.

"I think he's a person I know well - he is a good person", said Mr. Trump, who during the interview was surrounded at his desk by a half-dozen of his highest-ranking aides, including the economic adviser Gary Cohn and the chief of staff, Reince Priebus, along with Vice President Mike Pence.

Trump had his own run-in with sexual harassment accusations in October, after an "Access Hollywood" tape surfaced in which he said he grabbed women by their genitals. He told the Times: "You should have taken it all the way". In his conversation with The Times, the president praised Fox News' Bill O'Reilly for his coverage of the Susan Rice unmasking story. "I don't think Bill did anything wrong".

When Fox CEO Roger Ailes was under scrutiny and later forced to resign, Trump continued to maintain his innocence and stand by the aggressor, even as it threatened his presidential ambitions.

Nine months after Ailes' departure, Fox News is facing mounting public pressure from accusers, advertisers and women's rights groups to go further in addressing the allegations against O'Reilly.

The company did not suggest it has pulled its advertising buy from Fox News Channel in general. The National Organization for Women has called for him to be fired. So which Fox News show is the most popular?

The worst part of my job is being a target for those who would harm me and my employer, the Fox News Channel. A New York Times article published over the weekend outlined the $13 million Fox has paid to settle sexual harassment allegations against the host.

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.

Seated alongside Bash, CNN's Nia-Malika Henderson added some context to the topic of alleged sexual harassment.
