More than 40 companies that advertise with Fox News have announced they’re splitting from the show.

In 2016 O'Reilly Factor generated nearly 500 Million $ in revenue.

Two dirty birds of a feather...

Trump defends Bill O'Reilly: 'I don't think Bill did anything wrong'

President Donald Trump on Wednesday weighed in on the recent controversy surrounding Fox News host Bill O'Reilly.

In an interview with The New York Times, Trump defended O'Reilly against new revelations that he, Fox News and parent company 21st Century Fox had paid a total of $13 million in settlements to five women who accused him of sexual harassment or verbal abuse.

"I think he's a person I know well — he is a good person," Trump told the Times. "I think he shouldn't have settled; personally I think he shouldn't have settled. Because you should have taken it all the way. I don't think Bill did anything wrong."

Most hardcore Trump supporters are faithful FOX listeners. With some many troubles with Fox, I would think these listeners would be disillusioned and it would translate to lower levels of support for Trump? Or are these hardcore supporters so blind nothing makes any difference to them?

"Most hardcore Trump supporters are faithful FOX listeners."

No they aren't! That's what the left wants you to think.

Hypocrisy in the Anti-O'Reilly Army
Brent Bozell


Fox News took Bill O'Reilly off the air after a heavy campaign to fire him led by CNN's media unit and The New York Times. If all the charges of sexual harassment are true, his case is indefensible. That said, it's time for his media critics to stand down. They are guilty of rank hypocrisy.

These same media outlets despised the idea that Donald Trump would drag Bill Clinton's sexual harassment lawsuits into the presidential campaign. On Jan. 8, 2016, the Times editorial staff sneered: "It is also a tired subject that few Americans want to hear more about. If Mr. Trump has not read enough, he can curl up with a copy of the Starr report."

Bizarrely, the editorial noted that Hillary Clinton had told a New Hampshire town hall questioner a month earlier that Juanita Broaddrick's tale of rape was not to be believed. Yet it was Trump who was denounced as sexist and beyond the pale. The Times said: "His aim is to dredge up an ancient scandal and tar Mrs. Clinton with it in a clearly sexist fashion. There should be no place for that kind of politics in this country." That is, unless it's the top draw at Fox News, in which case it's suddenly America's greatest concern.

On April 2, 2017, the Times published a 3,148-word front-page article lamenting "O'Reilly Thrives as Settlements Add Up." Reporters Emily Steel and Michael Schmidt declared that their investigation found five women who received payouts from either O'Reilly or Fox "in exchange for agreeing to not pursue litigation or speak about their accusations against him. The agreements totaled about $13 million."


As they noted, the lion's share of that total came in a $9 million settlement from 2004. That was 13 years ago, but it didn't qualify as a "tired subject" or some "ancient scandal."

CNN relentlessly pushed for O'Reilly's dismissal, calling up advertisers and pressuring them to take commercials off their competition. Bashing O'Reilly dominated their Sunday show "Reliable Sources" for weeks and their "news" programming after their victory.

But two days after the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke in 1998, CNN aired a town hall meeting titled "Investigating the President: Media Madness?" Host Jeff Greenfield insisted that millions of Americans were "asking the press one question fraught with significance: What the hell are you people doing trying to find out what kind of sex the President of the United States might or might not be having?"

Back then, it was "media madness" to investigate whether then-President Bill Clinton might be assaulting women in the workplace -- the Oval Office. There was zero concern about a "culture of abuse" inside the White House. For good measure, CNN moved on to specials attacking special prosecutor Ken Starr for prudishly investigating where CNN and the rest of the press never wanted to go.

It's not only CNN and the Times that are displaying a different moral standard. Does no one find it just a wee bit ironic that disgraced Brian Williams is still doing a weeknight show on MSNBC, where he can lecture that O'Reilly was dispatched by "the power of the female consumer"?

Women deserve a workplace where men don't harass them for sex. But that's what these sanctimonious liberal journalists care about. It just doesn't matter how brutal the alleged rape of Juanita Broaddrick was. What matters is that Bill O'Reilly had to go.

Bill Clinton is laughing.

--------------------------------------------------------------

The hypocrisy of the left has no bounds.

Trump Supporting Ex-Judge Arrested for Child Sex Crime
A local chairman for the president’s campaign in Kentucky has been charged with several crimes related to a minor.

04.24.17 2:46 PM ET

A former Kentucky judge who served as a local chair for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign was arrested Friday on sex trafficking charges.

Tim Nolan, 70, was charged with human trafficking and unlawful transaction with a minor, according to a press release from Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear. Nolan allegedly provided a minor with alcohol—and subjected a minor to commercial sexual activity, according to court papers first obtained by the River City News.

The alleged trafficking occurred between July and August 2016 when he was serving as Campbell County chairman for Trump’s campaign.

It is just one more example of sex abuse by another big time Trump supporter.

"It is just one more example of sex abuse by another big time Trump supporter."

Okay!

The former President, Mr. William J. Clinton was convicted of a sex crime, is he required to register as a sex offended in NY state?

ok. I will agree with that. But we have a current president who has been accused of sexual harassment by a dozen or more women. He said he was would sue them but he won't because he is too busy golfing. Just another Trump lie. Locker room talk. Right.
