Alec Baldwin plays Bill O'Reilly on SNL, interviews himself as Trump

LOS ANGELES 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, will investigate sexual harassment claims levelled at USA host Bill O'Reilly, the lawyer of one of his accusers says.

The investigation comes after Bloom and her client, Wendy Walsh, called Fox's workplace misconduct hotline, and placed an official complaint against O'Reilly on Wednesday. "And so I am told that they are taking it seriously and they are going to do the investigation that's legally required of them".

"This is not blowing over", she said.

The former accused O'Reilly of revoking an offer to secure her as a contributor on the network after she refused to follow him back to his hotel room after dinner in 2013.

Paul Weiss is the same law firm hired by 21st Century Fox to look into sexual harassment claims against former Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes following a lawsuit filed by former host Gretchen Carlson.

Walsh is not one of the women to receive settlements from O'Reilly or Fox News over alleged harassment from the star host.

The statement also welcomed global efforts to find a "peaceful and comprehensive solution through dialogue". South Korean news agency Yonhap quoted an unnamed South Korean government source as saying that the U.S.

Case in point: Donald Trump defended Bill O'Reilly after the New York Times revealed that he had settled as many as five sexual harassment suits for $13 million. "It's about having great morals and values, and it couldn't have come at a better time".

The O'Reilly Factor had just seven advertisers still on board as Thursday (6 April), following which the HBO show tried to buy of one of the many vacant spaces with the following ad to air in NY and DC.

Curmudgeonly Fox News golden boy, Bill O'Reilly, reportedly was off the hook for several sexual harassment claims lodged against him over the years. Most have moved their advertisements to Fox News' other programming, meaning that the network still gets to keep most of the ad dollars. Advocacy groups such as the National Organization for Women have called for the dismissal of the combative commentator, who is paid $18 million annually by Fox News.

In a nod to advertisers fleeing The O'Reilly Factor, the advertisers during the sketch were "Dog Cocaine", "Cialis for horses", and the movie, CHIPS.

"Can I just say, I also see a lot of myself in you, Bill", Baldwin, as Trump, told Baldwin, as O'Reilly, in a statement that carried a few levels of meaning.
