Just What IS Considered Sexual Harassment Now?

My guess, whatever can be put into a specious lawsuit. What is harassment today was just sexual humor in mixed company ten years ago.
Fox is now the prime target after the lawsuit against Roger Ailes. There appeared to a basis for it. 
Some of this may just borish behavior, but some maybe true and some false and mercenary. Should these be lies, they are the kind that can be impossible to disprove. 
I am not fan of O'Reilly, but he has not been a afraid to stand up for himself in the past. 
But should the charges be true, he show lose his ads and viewers alike.  m/r

Only seven ads run on Thursday's 'O'Reilly Factor'

Just seven advertisements ran on Thursday’s "The O'Reilly Factor" on Fox News after nearly 60 companies this week reportedly dropped their sponsorships of the highly rated prime-time program.
The hourlong series can run as many as 40 commercials during a typical night.
The increasing ad pulls follow a Saturday New York Times report that host Bill O'Reilly paid $13 million to five women to settle sexual harassment allegations.
