Rep. Waters Thinks O'Reilly Should Be Jailed For Sexual Harassment

Posted April 11, 2017

This comes as more advertisers-around 50, officially-have asked that their ads not air during the most-watched cable news program following a New York Times investigation into payments made to women who'd accused O'Reilly of harassment.

With an avalanche of advertisers pulling out of O'Reilly's program, Waters said, "It's all catching up with Bill O'Reilly and that sexual harassment enterprise that they created over there at Fox".

In a statement posted on his website on Saturday, O'Reilly said he had been unfairly targeted because of his prominence.

Trump, 70, defended the anchor to The New York Times on Wednesday, stating that O'Reilly "shouldn't have settled".

"I wonder why women at the network would take that particularly seriously", he said. "I can not be thought to be afraid of Bill O'Reilly or anybody".

Several other companies, like Trivago and Expedia, have declined to comment on their ad buys related to "The O'Reilly Factor", but none have solicited the same fierce backlash as Angie's List. "And, I can tell you that some of the women that are complaining, I know how much he's helped them". "Mr. O'Reilly is fully committed to supporting our efforts to improve the environment for all our employees at Fox News", the statement continued.

That's important because the biggest broadband companies want to build ad businesses to rival those tech giants. Internet companies like Google don't have to ask users' permission before tracking what sites they visit.

Christians make up roughly 10 percent of Egypt's population, and almost all Christians are Copts, of the Coptic Orthodox Church. The bombings come days after President Donald Trump welcomed el-Sisi to Washington and stressed his support for Cairo .

At the time, Waters was being interviewed on the MSNBC show "All In with Chris Hayes".

U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters says Fox News host Bill O'Reilly "needs to go to jail" over sexual harassment allegations.

"The worst part of my job is being a target for those who would harm me and my employer, the Fox News Channel", O'Reilly said.

Here's the difference: Roger Ailes built Fox News into a monster, so big that it was ultimately bigger than him. TV ad buyer and DirectAvenue CEO Scott Kowalchek is the first TV ad executive to publicly call on the network to fire O'Reilly; he also urges other TV ad execs to take an ethical stand against unethical conduct by the conservative firebrand. Ailes resigned his position in disgrace previous year after several prominent Fox News employees, including Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson, accused their boss of "making unwanted sexual advances" toward them.

More recently, O'Reilly has seemingly sought to re-enforce that strategy of silence over social media by making no mention of his ongoing troubles and only tweeting about unrelated events, as if nothing was going on behind the scenes.

The Jenny Craig defection shows how dire the situation has become for Fox News. The publication reports that over a dozen establishments have mentioned about their plan to withdraw their ads from "The O'Reilly Factor".
