Bill O'Reilly announces he's taking a vacation amid sexual harassment scandal

He said he would return on April 24.

But a new report indicates that this may become a permanent vacation for the serial sexual harasser.

Fox News windbag Bill O'Reilly is now embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal wherein at least five women have allegedly received payouts totaling $13 million over the past five years in exchange for their silence. The nastiness summons memories of O'Reilly's colleague Martha MacCallum cracking up about a wheelchair user tumbling down an escalator.

Mr O'Reilly is one of the chanel's best-known presenters, and has worked with the organisation for over twenty years. An investigation by the state agency, Bloom contends, is the only probe that "can remedy the continued illegal conduct at Fox News".

No one has filed a complaint about O'Reilly with the company's human resources department over the more than 20 years he has been at Fox News Channel, the host said in an April 1 statement.

She says she is not seeking any monetary amount for going public with this accusation. "I use catheters and there's two things I know: I don't like pain when I cath, and repeated unwanted sexual advances or obscene remarks in the workplace constitutes sexual harassment".

Advertisers have flocked away from The O'Reilly Factor over the scandal, led by high-profile brands such as Allstate, Hyundai, and Mercedes-Benz.

Trump told The Times that O'Reilly "didn't do anything wrong" and that his only mistake was settling the lawsuits against him.

But New York Magazine writes that O'Reilly may never return to his desk.

On Sunday, reported on attorney Lisa Bloom's revelation that Fox News is investigating her client Wendy Walsh's sexual harassment claim against Bill O'Reilly. "The worst part of my job is being a target for those who would harm me and my employer, the Fox News Channel". Two highly placed Fox News sources say 21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch would like O'Reilly to be permanently removed from the air, while his father, Rupert, and older brother, Lachlan, are more inclined to keep him. "And there's a cynicism about the degree of sincerity with which the Murdoch family and the top executives are operating".

Presumably, said Deadline, while O'Reilly is vacationing, President Donald Trump will continue to stand by his longtime friend.

Brands subsequently pulled advertising from The O'Reilly Factor and Trump subsequently defended O'Reilly, telling the New York Times he was a good person and should not have settled.
