Not In Defense Of Bill O’Reilly--But Against Calls For Advertiser Boycotts.
By Politico,April 05, 2017
Whenever a mob forms—even a righteous mob whose cause seems just—I get the willies. This week, a mob has arisen to punish Bill O’Reilly for his alleged sexual harassing ways by sapping his Fox News Channel show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” of its sponsors. So far, at least 47 advertisers, including Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, BMW, Mitsubishi, Lexus, Orkin and Allstate, have dumped their buys on his show, according to CNN; more are sure to follow.
