Bill O'Reilly goes on vacation amid sponsor backlash

Nearly two weeks ago The New York Times broke the news O'Reilly and Fox News had paid five women about $13 million after they accused him of sexual harassment and related issues.

O'Reilly will return to the Factor on April 24th, maybe.

Toward the end of the segment, O'Reilly seemed to take a more serious tone.

O'Reilly's future now is in the hands of the Murdochs, Sherman reported.

A broadcast news show reached an important milestone last week.

White Sox Game Notes For Friday @ Minnesota
With a man that strong, you put a good swing on a ball, you attack it and you click it, it has a chance to go". We're entering the third season of the annual South Point-lined Play of the Day competition, effective July 1.

O'Reilly spokesperson Mark Fabiani told CNNMoney that O'Reilly would return to the program on April 24, and in his absence, a series of rotating hosts would anchor the show. His father, Rupert, and older brother, Lachlan, also reportedly back O'Reilly and want him to remain on the network.

Walsh said in the video that she declined O'Reilly's invitation and that soon after, he became "hostile" and told her she could forget about any career advice he had given previously, and that she was on her own.

Other women who made allegations against O'Reilly either worked for him or appeared on his show and have complained about behavior such as verbal abuse, lewd comments, unwanted advances and phone calls in which it sounded as if O'Reilly was masturbating, the New York Times reported.

Meanwhile, Fox has asked the law firm Paul, Weiss to conduct an internal investigation into O'Reilly's treatment of Wendy Walsh, a former guest on "The O'Reilly Factor" who alleges that the host sexually harassed her.

"I should be laughing, but it's just so freaky", Bill said to Fox News correspondent Rob Schmidtt, per Business Insider.

Chris Sutton believes Arsenal must replace Arsene Wenger
Hopefully we haven't been dragged straight back into it, but judging on that performance tonight, it looks like we have. It's a big worry. "I have managed over 1100 games for Arsenal Football Club and we are not used to losing like that".

His vacation announcement comes as about 60 companies said they wont advertise on his show.

He made the point that the time off was voluntary.

"The O'Reilly Factor" averaged 3.71 million viewers over five nights last week, the Nielsen company said Tuesday.

But O'Reilly, cable TV news' most popular personality, hasn't been abandoned by his audience.

21st Century Fox responded to the Times report earlier this month, saying in a statement it "denies the merits of these claims". "Put it to good use". Why in the world did Mr. O'Reilly announce that he was taking a vacation on Tuesday night?

US vows to keep up pressure on Syria after missile strikes
He also said that the USA missile airstrikes were an effort to dispirit the Syrian people and Army and to embolden the terrorists. Neutral countries should investigate whether a chemical weapon was used , and if used, its source should be found, Rouhani said.

Although New York Magazine's sources say network co-president Bill Shine was attempting to save O'Reilly, the matter rests exclusively on the shoulders of the Murdoch family, which includes Rupert Murdoch, the chairman of Fox News, and James Murdoch, 21st Century Fox CEO.
