'SNL' gets Trump and O'Reilly just right

Don't act like the president at Fox except at Fox News Don't act like the president at Fox except at Fox

The decisions come after a New York Times report that five women received about $13 million from O'Reilly or Fox News' parent company, 21st Century Fox, to settle accusations of sexual harassment and other inappropriate behavior by O'Reilly.

Attorneys of Fox News told Bloom they would investigate Walsh's complaint against O'Reilly after she placed a call to the hotline, Bloom told CNN's Brian Stelter.

"I told them I really appreciate that and let's get going as soon as possible". She said on the tip line that that she and O'Reilly discussed her future in television at dinner in a hotel restaurant, and that after she rejected his suggestion that they go to his hotel suite, he became hostile, saying, "Forget about any career advice I gave you".

Representatives for 21st Century Fox told the Times that O'Reilly denies the "merits of these claims" but that he "has resolved those he regarded as his personal responsibility".

Alec Baldwin gave fans a double dose of topical comedy on this weekend's Saturday Night Live, reprising his Donald Trump impersonation, along with a spot-on spoof of embattled Fox News host Bill O'Reilly's sexual abuse allegations.

O'Reilly "is a despicable human being who has been exceedingly rude to me, and who has hurt many women", Bloom said in an interview wth Swaay. Bloom said on Sunday that Walsh has not sued or sought a settlement from O'Reilly.

Bloom said O'Reilly had told Walsh he would recommend her for a paid contributor role on the network. But most importantly, I'm a father who cares deeply for my children and who would do anything to avoid hurting them in any way.

The 21st Century Fox investigation would pile on yet another major scandal for the right-wing news channel.

The accusations of Walsh and others against O'Reilly have wiped out most of the advertising on "The O'Reilly Factor, which attracts more viewers nightly than any other program on cable news".

Fox News and its star host Bill O'Reilly are on the defensive after becoming embroiled in new allegations of sexual misconduct and racial discrimination.

The scandal has led to an advertiser exodus for Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor", which the variety show made fun of by showing which sponsors had stuck around.

But in the past week, dozens of brands have said they're pulling ads from "The O'Reilly Factor" because of the allegations.
