The New York Times revealed last week that Bill O'Reilly and Fox News have settled five sexual harassment lawsuits since 2004, paying a total of about $13m. Since the allegations came to light, Fox News has faced growing pressure to fire their star host, with over 60 companies now saying they won’t advertise on the network’s most popular programs.
In fact, the one person not condemning Bill O'Reilly seems to be President Donald Trump. In an interview with The New York Times, Trump defended O'Reilly:
"I think he's a person I know well — he is a good person. I think he shouldn't have settled; personally I think he shouldn't have settled. Because you should have taken it all the way. I don't think Bill did anything wrong."
