Bill O’Reilly has cancelled his promotional tour for his new book, O’Reilly Factor for Kids. Millions of children around the country will be forced to learn how to yell “Shut-up!” at their playmates all by themselves.
Fox News Channel’s star host Bill O’Reilly has canceled a series of TV interviews to promote his new children’s book days after a former producer accused him in a lawsuit of sexual harassment, his publisher said on Monday.
The normally outspoken conservative commentator scrapped appearances that had been scheduled for Friday on ABC’s “The View” and HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” and for Monday on CBS’ “The Early Show,” Harper Entertainment spokesman Seale Ballenger told Reuters.
“Because of the intense media scrutiny Mr. O’Reilly is currently facing, he and HarperCollins have jointly decided to postpone the final media interviews planned to promote ‘The O’Reilly Factor for Kids,”‘ the publisher said in a statement.
