Bill O'Reilly left and Stephen Colbert host of"The Colbert Report. on the Fox News show"The O'Reilly Factor in 2007
Speaking with Anderson Cooper on "AC360", Powers - a CNN political analyst - described an incident in which she appeared on "The O'Reilly Factor" along with fellow analyst, and current CNN commentator, Margaret Hoover.
O'Reilly's "Killing" historical series, including "Killing Lincoln" and "Killing Reagan", have consistently sold 1 million or more copies in hardcover, a rare achievement in publishing, and his platform on Fox enabled him to promote his work. His spokesperson says the trip had been planned since October, and Fox News says he will return to "The O'Reilly Factor" on April 24. Colbert acknowledged that he owed a chunk of his career to that walking landfill of angry garbage: "I owe a lot to Bill O'Reilly", the host said on The Late Show.
Yet the allegations against O'Reilly fit into an uncomfortable narrative for the cable news network. "The men there and Roger Ailes, this was a way of life for them".
Fox News has already announced the new schedules of the show.

The New York Times said Fox defended O'Reilly even as he and the company reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him. So Bill, I invite you to come live in the mountain cabin with me and Jon Stewart. Other accusations followed and Ailes was gone two weeks later.

"21st Century Fox investigates all complaints, and we have asked the law firm Paul, Weiss to continue assisting the company in these serious matters", a 21st Century Fox spokesman said at the time. Paul Rittenberg, executive vp of advertising sales at Fox News, said in a recent statement: "We value our partners and are working with them to address their current concerns about The O'Reilly Factor".
