Who Is Hosting 'Saturday Night Live' Tonight? Host Musical Guest Information For April 8 Episode

The Times reported that five women over a period of more than a decade have been paid a total of $13 million by either O'Reilly, Fox News or parent company 21st Century Fox.

O'Reilly has denied all allegations, and the network has stood by him, even after a New York Times report on the settlements last week started an advertising exodus from his show. Now, at least 60 sponsors have announced they will not support "The O'Reilly Factor", according to CNN.

The investigation comes after Bloom and her client, Wendy Walsh, called Fox's workplace misconduct hotline, and placed an official complaint against O'Reilly on Wednesday.

O'Reilly himself has not spoken about the matter on his show thus far. He said that he was an easy target to litigation because of his wealth and visibility. "Fox News and O'Reilly have said no one has complained about him on their complaint line".

Said Bloom: "On Friday, we received a return phone call from a couple of attorneys who represent Fox News, and they said that they are indeed going to do an investigation based on Wendy's complaint".

21st Century Fox issued a statement on Sunday saying it's instructed a law firm to look into the claim.

Also last week, in light of the New York Times article, several women steppe forward to say that they too were sexually harassed by Bill O'Reilly. Ailes resigned from his post in July two weeks after Gretchen Carlson filed suit over his habitually sexist and inappropriate behavior.

In a nod to advertisers fleeing The O'Reilly Factor, the advertisers during the sketch were "Dog Cocaine", "Cialis for horses", and the movie, CHIPS. "We have produced an ad to educate Donald Trump to air during The O'Reilly Factor in NY and D.C. We submitted it to stations on Friday, but weirdly, we haven't heard back from them since". When O'Reilly began to make her uncomfortable with sexual assault hints, the reporter had her voice distorted and face blurred out. It is reported that in two years he has earned Fox News nearly $466 million, making his annual salary of $18 million a sound investment.

Those missing advertisers on Bill O'Reilly's show are in part thanks to out crusader Angelo Carusone.
