It Gets Worse: More Major Companies Pull Ads From ‘The O’Reilly Factor’

On Wednesday, dozens of companies have announced that they are also pulling their commercials from “The O’Reilly Factor” over reports that the show’s host, Bill O’Reilly, paid $13 million in settlements to five women who accused him of sexual harassment.

So far, more than 30 companies had made the call to pull their ads from the Fox prime-time cable program, according to a report by CNBC.

Automotive giants Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, BMW of North America, Subaru, Mitsubishi Motors and Lexus were among the companies cutting ties with the O’Reilly’s show, according to the report. Jenny Craig, Ancestry, Constant Contact, Bayer, Ainsworth Pet Nutrition, Orkin, Untuckit, Allstate, Esurance, T. Rowe Price, GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi and Credit Karma also pulled their ads.

O’Reilly, 67, did not address the report on his Monday night program, but in a statement over the weekend, he said the settlements were made “to put to rest any controversies to spare my children.”

President Trump defended the Fox News host in an interview with The New York Times earlier Wednesday, calling him “a good person” who “shouldn’t have settled” in the lawsuits made against him.
