This is Going to Get Good; The Factor Ed.

For help [in finding charges of sexual harassment and keeping his job], Mr. O’Reilly has turned to none other than a man who took a leading role in defending Mr. Clinton from the likes of Mr. O’Reilly in the 1990s, the former White House aide and Democratic strategist Mark Fabiani.
Oh, yeah, this is going to be good.

The ratings for his show are up, he pulls in over $200 million a year in ad revenue and Fox News is a vital profit engine for the Murdoch Empire. As long as O'Reilly can keep himself under some semblance of control, he's not going anywhere.

But, as soon as he costs Fox New more than he's worth, he'll be given a hefty payout and he'll be gone.

What I heard is that the first time he was in deep shit at Fox, they told him that if his ratings tanked, he was gone. What happened was that his ratings went up for a while because people were curious as to what he was going to say about it. There seems to be a similar situation this time, but his advertisers don't seem to be as sanguine about it.
