Departing 'O'Reilly Factor' Advertisers Now In Other Fox Shows

"Nobody can silence me because my voice is not for sale", Walsh said, according to the Associated Press. Walsh says she headed left, toward the bar.

Walsh appeared on his show only a few more times.

However, the allegations and defection hit hard on the shares of the 21st Century Fox because they fell 1.2% to $31.75 at the close in NY.

Fox News was also at the centre of a sexual-harassment scandal a year ago.

But last summer's forced departure of Ailes, who has vigorously denied the charges against him, was a step into the unknown for Fox.

Fox News, one of the most-watched cable news networks has been making headlines in the recent past for the wrong reasons.

"What makes her statement so powerful is that she's not looking for a payout", said ABC News Chief Legal Analyst Dan Abrams.

Over the weekend, the New York Times reported that Fox and Mr. O'Reilly agreed on the settle the sexual harassment allegations filed against him by five women for $13 million. ABC News has not independently verified these claims. Both parties agreed in the settlement that no wrongdoing whatsoever had occurred. O'Reilly, in a statement posted on his website on Saturday, said he had been unfairly targeted because of his prominence. "Fox News apparently doesn't get that basic concept".

"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".

Together, they've kept O'Reilly front and center on the network, despite all the payments that O'Reilly, Fox and parent company 21st Century Fox have made over the past dozen years to quell such accusations.

Apparently, the company has stood by O'Reilly who claims that the allegations are as a result of his prominence.

The new lawsuit against Ailes was brought by Fox's Julie Roginsky and is notable because it accuses Fox's current management of trying to cover up for Ailes.

On April 3, the network's head of human resources sent an email to staff stating that any employee who had concerns with behavior in the workplace should raise their concerns. Ailes has denied the charges. Fox settled the lawsuit back in September issuing an apology for Carlson's treatment while employed under Ailes. Corporate America is speaking to them in the language they understand: money.

"He tried to kiss me three times", Kelly said. The company is simply moving its ads to other Fox News content.

In a statement emailed to NPR, Ailes' lawyer Susan Estrich called Roginsky's descriptions of meetings with her client "total hogwash". Many question the truth of the stories or see them as payback for Fox's success, he said. A Fox executive recently was sacked for trying to force a woman to perform oral sex. Claims have to address activity that happened in NY and must be filed within a year of an alleged infraction. "The stories she is telling now are fabrications built on half-truths and outright lies, and I can only assume are opportunistically meant to thrust her back into the limelight at my expense". The network's No. 1 star, Bill O'Reilly, has been accused of crude and vindictive behavior toward women.
