Fox News has already been hit in the pocketbook by this Bill O'Reilly sexual harassment scandal. Now they're getting kicked while they're down.

With at least 52 companies pulling their ads from The O'Reilly Factor, the network has had a hard time keeping the hour's commercial break time fair and balanced.

They've been airing a lot of local ads during the show but also moved some nonspecific Fox News advertisers to the time slot. See, two of the companies didn't like finding out their ads were aired during Wednesday night's show, especially because they NEVER advertise during O'Reilly.

A Crowne Plaza hotels spokesman told The Wrap:

"We have a very explicit do not advertise list, which includes The O'Reilly Factor. Unfortunately, there was a breakdown between the media buying agency and Fox News that led to this inadvertent airing. Since we learned of this, we addressed this issue immediately with the agency and are suspending advertising on Fox News until we understand how this occurred and can be assured this will not happen again."
