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

Trump's defense of O'Reilly sends a strong signal to women that the man at the top of our government is not particularly concerned with issues of corporate misconduct, sexual harassment, or sexual assault against women.

Um, no. Bill O'Reilly is doing his best to try to change the subject from his sexual harassment allegations - which have even drawn the attention of the president of the United States - by tweeting about other things.

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday (April 5) defended TV anchor Bill O'Reilly after a report that the conservative commentator and his employer, 21st Century Fox, paid five women to settle claims he sexually harassed them. "Because you should have taken it all the way. I think not. But as you point out, he was with Roger Ailes all the way, and he's going to be with Bill O'Reilly all the way, and he may feel that in his own way, he himself has been wrong, with the "Access Hollywood" tape". "Totally unfounded, based on what I read".

Marshawn Lynch reportedly visits Raiders, tells them he plans to un-retire
Last week, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that he recently met with Lynch and talked about the idea of him returning to the NFL. The Raiders are in need of a running back after losing Latavius Murray to the Minnesota Vikings in free agency.

That story has resulted in a mass exodus of advertisers that now stands at twenty, and in an unusual twist, these companies are explicitly citing O'Reilly's misconduct allegations in their statements. The National Organization for Women has called for him to be fired.

Ailes, who has denied all of the allegations against him, was forced to resign from Fox News just one week after that interview.

From January 2015 to September 2016, the program raised $ 297 million in advertising revenue to Fox News, according to figures provided by Kantar Media.

Henry Holt, the publisher of O'Reilly's new book "Old School", has said it has "no comment at this time" on the allegations against its author. But neither the company nor O'Reilly have addressed the matter since Saturday, when the New York Times first revealed the extent of settlements paid to O'Reilly's accusers.
