Bill O’Reilly Keeps Losing Advertisers Over Alleged Sexual Misconduct

More than 20 companies have stopped buying advertisements that air during The O’Reilly Factor in response to allegations that show host Bill O’Reilly is guilty of sexual harassment.

The New York Times reported on Saturday (April 1) that five women who had either worked on the program or had appeared as guests brought claims of sexual misconduct against O’Reilly. Fox News, which airs O’Reilly, and O’Reilly, himself, paid the women a collective $13 million in to avoid legal action.

The O’Reilly Factor was the top-rated cable-news program in 2016, and its host has become a major star who has sold millions of books. Fox News says it supports O’Reilly, and maintains claims of misconduct have no merit.

The National Organization for Women has called for O’Reilly to be fired and for a broader investigation into what it calls a “culture of sexual harassment at Fox News”:

Last year, longtime CEO of Fox News, Roger Ailes, was forced out of Fox due to numerous allegations of sexual harassment during his tenure.

Here are all the companies that have so far announced they’ll no longer run ads during The O’Reilly Factor:

  • Ainsworth Pet Nutrition
  • Allstate
  • Bayer
  • BMW of North America
  • Coldwell Banker
  • Constant Contact
  • Credit Karma
  • Esurance
  • GlaxoSmithKline
  • Hyundai
  • Lexus
  • Mercedes-Benz
  • Mitsubishi
  • Rollins, Inc
  • Sanofi
  • Society for Human Resource Management
  • T. Rowe Price
  • The Wonderful Company
  • TrueCar
  • UNTUCKit
  • Wayfair
