Fox News parent Twenty-First Century Fox (FOX) said on Sunday it will investigate a sexual harassment claim against TV anchor Bill O'Reilly, who has seen several companies pull their ads from his top-rated news show in the past week. In response to O'Reilly's recent negative publicity, Fox assured the media that they thoroughly investigate every complaint made to their anonymous hotline, but both Fox and O'Reilly were quick to note that no current or former Fox employee had used the hotline to raise a complaint about O'Reilly.

Frog Mucus Might Help Cure Flu Viruses
Urumin is welcome news for doctors and researchers seeking alternative methods to combat antibiotic-resistant viruses. Hydrophylax bahuvistara , a frog from the South Indian peninsula has an odd quirk - it doesn't get viral infections.

So, Wendy Walsh, a former O'Reilly Factor commentator, called the hotline to file an official complaint against O'Reilly last Wednesday.

Walsh said that O'Reilly offered to make her a contributor on his show, but rescinded the offer after he denied her sexual advances.

In wake of Trump defending Fox News host Bill O'Reilly as "a good person" after a slew of sexual harassment allegations against him, Oliver announced he was once again deploying the widely recognized "Catheter Cowboy" to teach Trump another lesson. He also said that there were no official complaints at Fox News' Human Resources department against him.

The accusations of Walsh and others against O'Reilly have wiped out most of the advertising on "The O'Reilly Factor, which attracts more viewers nightly than any other program on cable news". So far he has not heard back from the FOX News sales team. As a reminder, Trump also blindly defended his long-time friend Roger Ailes last summer when over two dozen women came forward to report that Ailes had sexually harassed them when he headed Fox News. Nobody, that is, apart from the president of the United States", Oliver said, playing quotes where Trump recently told a New York Times reporter: "Personally, I think he shouldn't have settled.

Spicer apologises for Hitler 'didn't use chemical arms' claim
During the daily White House press briefing, Spicer incorrectly claimed on Tuesday that Hitler didn't use chemical weapons during World War II.

Even so, over 40 companies have pulled their advertisements from The O'Reilly Factor, according to Fortune Magazine. This time the cowboy urges President Trump to think before publicly supporting his Bill O'Reilly, who is now being investigated for sexual harassment.

"And I do hope they don't reject this ad".

Fox News said it had implemented sensitivity training to ensure these claims were not repeated.
