The trouble at Fox News continues as advertisers have begun to pull ads from Bill O’Reilly's show amid sexual harassment allegations. Currently about 50 companies have boycotted "The O'Reilly Factor," including Mercedes-Benz, Advil and Allstate.

NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik (@davidfolkenflik) talks with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson about what this means for Fox News, as well as President Trump's response to the allegations.

This segment aired on April 6, 2017.
