Are the allegations true?
Fox News is under fire. Founder and former Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes was forced to resign in 2016 after numerous allegations surfaced accusing the high-powered media executive of sexually harassing female colleagues.
Recently, it came out that Fox superstar Bill O’Reilly has also had to settle millions of dollars in sexual harassment lawsuits over the years himself — Today (April 19th), it was announced that he, too, had been dropped from his longtime role at Fox News Channel. But is the damage to the network already done?
Throughout the controversy, a number of Fox’s advertisers pulled ads from the network and the public has expressed outrage over the Fox’s handling of the situation. What happens now is anyone’s guess.
