The popular US show “O’Reilly Factor” is losing steam in the absence of its popular anchor Bill O’Reilly as the sexual harassment cases looms at Fox News.
Although it has been only four days since Bill O’Reilly’s vacation, his show’s viewership declined by 23 percent in the hands of substitutes Dana Perino, Eric Bolling and Greg Gutfeld.
Bill is reportedly on a nearly two-week vacation at the same time Fox News Channel’s parent company looks into a woman’s accusation that her career was slowed when she spurned his advances.
Despite the vacation, the pressure is staying on O’Reilly and 21st Century Fox, which is looking into at least one complaint about his behavior.
An African-American woman has claimed that O’Reilly referred her “hot chocolate” when they were together alone, made grunting noises and leered at her cleavage and legs.
The woman said she never had a direct conversation with O’Reilly. The woman, who is not contemplating any legal action, reported being “very stressed and disillusioned” about her job and believed she would be fired if she complained to anyone.
