Roginsky said that a misogynistic culture at Fox News had not changed since Ailes left the network.

Baldwin portrayed Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, interviewing himself as Trump in a "SNL" skit Saturday.

"I'm told we do have Fox News analyst Malia Zimmerman in studio who is now reporting live via satellite from exactly 500 yards away".

"Thanks for coming to my defense last week even though no one asked you to", O'Reilly says.

The recent news has caused over two-dozen advertisers, starting with Mercedes-Benz, to pull their ads from The O'Reilly Factor on Fox News.

The investigation comes after Bloom and her client, Wendy Walsh, called Fox's workplace misconduct hotline, and placed an official complaint against O'Reilly on Wednesday. Bloom then posted a clip of their call on YouTube.

Paul Weiss is the same firm that conducted the investigation into former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. The company confirmed that it will probe the matter.

Syrian TV says dozens killed in blast near evacuation buses
The buses were carrying almost 5,000 people from Foua and Kfraya, villages in northern Syria that have been besieged by rebels. The deal to evacuate the towns is the latest in a string of such agreements through Syria's six-year civil war.

Last week, Wendy Walsh, a psychologist and a former regular guest on The O'Reilly Factor filed a case against Mr. O'Reilly. "Fox News and O'Reilly have said no one has complained about him on their complaint line".

"We're going to get rid of it", Baldwin as Trump said.

In the aftermath of a major report by the New York Times last week, detailing multiple sexual harassment allegations against O'Reilly, the host put out an official statement denying wrongdoing. When Day's character says they just want any good jobs, they don't have to be in coal, the "President" says, "Sorry, hombre, it's all coal".

"I told them I really appreciate that and let's get going as soon as possible", said the attorney.

The fake O'Reilly kicked off the segment by promising to talk about "the scandal everyone's been talking about all week, the shocking allegations of abuse of power that have been leveled against. the Obama administration". That left products like "dog cocaine" - "because you can teach a dog new tricks" and "Eliquis" - "it's Cialis for horses" - to sponsor O'Reilly's show. "I actually see a lot of myself in you, Bill", Trump-Baldwin said approvingly.

Fox News has stood by O'Reilly, as it can financially withstand the impact of the advertiser defections by placing the commercials in other programs on the channel.
