21st Century Fox investigating O'Reilly harassment claims

21st Century Fox investigating O'Reilly harassment claims

In a statement, 21st Century Fox said it is looking into all complaints against Mr. O'Reilly and "asked the law firm, Paul, Weiss to continue assisting the company in these serious matters".

"I'm told that they are taking it seriously, and they are going to do the investigation that's legally required of them", Bloom told CNN's Brian Stelter.

"This is not blowing over", she said.

Last Monday, Bloom held a news conference with Walsh, who told her story of how rejecting romantic gestures from O'Reilly cost her a paid job at Fox News.

A claim of sexual harassment against Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly is under investigation, parent company 21st Century Fox said. According to the New York Times, O'Reilly rude behavior and verbal abuse directed at Walsh were mentioned in the sexual harassment suits against him. Walsh has not sued O'Reilly or Fox for damages nor sought a settlement.

O'Reilly of course denies the claims.

The O'Reilly character answered, "That's based upon?" with the Trump character replying: "A hunch, just a loose hunch."I'm more familiar with this case than I am with, say, health care". In response to O'Reilly's recent negative publicity, Fox assured the media that they thoroughly investigate every complaint made to their anonymous hotline, but both Fox and O'Reilly were quick to note that no current or former Fox employee had used the hotline to raise a complaint about O'Reilly.

Former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, resigned from his post in July, after being accused of serial sexual misconduct.

"I actually see a lot of myself in you, Bill", the Trump character said.

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

According to USA Today, around 3.8 million people watched The O'Reilly Factor last Tuesday night, far surpassing the same time the week before when only 2.3 million watched the show.

More than a dozen women came forward afterward to detail their own unwanted sexual encounters with the business mogul.

After his female correspondents have either quit or only appear on the show via satellite "and exactly 500 yards away", O'Reilly admits that 60 of his sponsors had pulled their ads from his show, but he still had no idea why.

Advertisers who chose to abandon O'Reilly include Mercedes, H&R Block, Constant Contact, and Allstate Insurance.
