Fox is firing host and commentator Bill O’Reilly after a string of sexual harassment allegations. Fox News and parent company 21 Century Fox have supported O'Reilly in five sexual harassment settlements with five women totaling in $13 million. Over 50 advertisers pulled ads from his show following an investigative report from the New York Times. Last summer, Fox News's chairman Roger Ailes was ousted after a sexual harassment scandal. Two sexual harassments claims against O'Reilly were settled since the time Ailes was fired.
