Almost 60 companies have dropped ads on the "Factor".
Fox News has already been hit in the pocketbook by this Bill O'Reilly sexual harassment scandal.
CNN's Van Jones has called on first daughter Ivanka Trump to speak out against Bill O'Reilly and his sexual harassment settlements, arguing that President Trump's defense of the Fox News host is spitting in the eye of the conservative women who voted for him. The news has sparked an exodus of advertisers telling Fox they didn't want to be involved in O'Reilly's show.
"The O'Reilly Factor" is losing advertisers after it was revealed five women have collectively received $13 million in settlements after accusing Bill O'Reilly of sexual harassment or inappropriate conduct. But for now, the network said Thursday that companies pulling ads from The O'Reilly Factor would have their dollars allocated to other Fox shows. "As soon as we learned about the accusations against Bill O'Reilly, we instructed our media buyer to cancel our advertising on 'The O'Reilly Factor.' Unfortunately, our media buyer was unable to impact show".
"It would be easy to make fun of all the hoops college administrators expect their students to jump through today before they engage in any kind of intimacy", he writes.
Just days prior to that, Trump's lawyers claimed immunity from a defamation lawsuit brought by Summer Zervos, a former contestant on Trump's reality show, "The Apprentice", who said Trump made unwanted sexual contact with her. Zervos was one of several women who came forward during the 2016 presidential campaign saying that Trump had behaved inappropriately toward them.
Fox News did not immediately respond to TheWrap's requests for comment.
Fox News aside, Waters had one final target, aiming her pointed remarks at the woman charged with advising her father on women-friendly policy, who told CBS Tuesday not to "conflate lack of public denouncement" of her father's misogynist words "with silence". As Waters pointed out, the network is now the subject of a federal investigation.
Still, neither Fox News or O'Reilly have addressed the matter on the air and the latter is still largely seen as the face of the entire right-leaning network. Since the report, more than 30 companies have yanked commercials from "The O'Reilly Factor".
