While America is still recovering from the shock of learning that Barry Manilow is gay, we shouldn’t forget another “stunning” recent revelation. Bill O’Reilly’s show on Fox News is in big trouble: Advertisers are fleeing due to news that the network has had to reportedly pay at least $13 million to protect him from sexual harassment lawsuits, mostly from women who worked with him.

As of this writing, dozens of major companies have pulled advertising from the show in some form. Ironically, or perhaps relatedly, reports indicate that Fox renewed O’Reilly’s contract in the midst of all of this, which may have actually helped provoke more outrage.
