Is That Bill O'Reilly or Donald Trump You're Talking About?

Is That Bill O'Reilly or Donald Trump You're Talking About?

O'Reilly Versus Trump

Saturday Night Live observes that Bill O'Reilly sure has a lot in common with Donald Trump.

Those missing advertisers on Bill O'Reilly's show are in part thanks to out crusader Angelo Carusone.

The president of Media Matters for America first made headlines when he took advertisers for Glenn Beck, who lost his show on Fox News. Carsone tried the same tactic with Rush Limbaugh, but the right-wing talking head still is on the air despite losing advertisers.

Carusone, named to the most recent "40 Under 40" list by The Advocate, was profiled by Politico for his ongoing effort to target advertisers of right-wingers. Carusone is also the founder of the "Dump Trump" movement, which he formed back before Trump ran for president. It's since been greatly expanded by the founder of Grab Your Wallet.

Now it's O'Reilly losing advertisers (find the most updated list here), with Carusone keeping pressure on after The New York Timesreported that multiple women were paid settlements totaling more than $13 million for alleged sexual harassment. On Saturday Night Live last night, actor Alec Baldwin played both O'Reilly and Trump to help drive home a point.

"I actually see a lot of myself in you Bill," said the president, as also played by Baldwin.

Trump was accused by more than a dozen women of inappropriate sexual contact during a campaign that included the shocking Access Hollywood tape, in which Trump is heard bragging that he grabs women without permission.
