What to know about the Fox News and Bill O'Reilly controversies

Walsh never pursued litigation as part of her settlement terms, but she did hire Bloom, who recorded her phone call to 21st Century Fox and uploaded the footage to Youtube.

"I told them I really appreciate that and let's get going as soon as possible". In exchange, the women agreed not to pursue litigation or go public with their accusations, according to the newspaper. So, while Fox may theoretically frown upon sexual harassment in the workplace, this does not appear to match its handling of major scandals within the company at all (the one through line is Fox trying to cover its own ass). Wendy Walsh is not one of the five women who have received a settlement. When O'Reilly began to make her uncomfortable with sexual assault hints, the reporter had her voice distorted and face blurred out.

Bloom told the Los Angeles Times that 21st Century Fox is required by law to look into the claim.

Fox has taken its time investigating the accusations, but now the company is reportedly prepared to follow protocol.

However, it is not clear if the United would like to choose a settlement or go to court. Dao suffered concussion, broke his nose, and lost two front teeth.

Bloom's announcement comes days after she and the accuser, Wendy Walsh, recorded themselves reporting O'Reilly to Fox News' corporate complaint hotline. O'Reilly denies this charge. Over a course of ten years, Fox News and O'Reilly had paid a total of $13 million to 5 women, including Walsh. "When she said no, did her eyes say yes?" he asked Zimmerman, played in the sketch by Cecily Strong.

"21st Century Fox investigates all complaints and we have asked the law firm Paul Weiss to continue assisting the company in these serious matters", it read.

"Can I just say, I also see a lot of myself in you, Bill", Baldwin, as Trump, told Baldwin, as O'Reilly, in a statement that carried a few levels of meaning. No advertiser has announced plans to remove its entire ad budget from the Fox News Channel in response to the O'Reilly controversy.

Last Week Tonight host John Oliver is no stranger to using advertising to get a point across, indeed he previously bought up ads to help brief president Donald Trump who is an avid viewer of the broadcaster. Among them are BMW, T. Rowe Price, GlaxoSmithKline, and Mitsubishi Motors. Those allegations incited a federal investigation of Fox News.
