    2017.04.19 - Bill O'Reilly Fired from Fox News

    "Bill O'Reilly is out at Fox News.

    Rupert Murdoch announced that he was terminating the network's most popular host in a letter on Wednesday afternoon that was signed by himself and his two sons, Lachlan and James.

    Rupert reportedly made this decision to fire O'Reilly after being pressured by his two sons.

    'After a thorough and careful review of the allegations,the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel,' 21st century Fox said in a statement."

    I'm really surprised this has happened but his behaviour is totally unacceptable. His show was the top rated at Fox News but I guess this has more to do with the severe drop in advertising than anything. Hopefully things will improve at the network and no one else will be sexually harassed in the work place which should not be tolerated.

    Bill O'Reilly Ousted at Fox News

    Bill O’Reilly Officially Out at Fox News

    by Ben Popken

    In a stunning fall from the heights of the cable kingdom, Bill O'Reilly is gone from Fox News.

    21st Century Fox, parent company of Fox News, released a statement Wednesday afternoon that read, "After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O'Reilly have agreed that Bill O'Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel."

    The future of Fox's reigning ratings superstar had grown uncertain as reports swirled that the network was preparing to sever its relationship with him, but it appears that Rupert Murdoch, executive co-chairman of Fox News' parent company 21st Century Fox, has greenlighted the axing of the network's biggest on-air asset...

    Goodbye, Bill! Don't let the door hit you in the you-know-what on the way out.

    Oh, and could you please take Shep Smith with you?

    Thanks! Happy trails!

    I'm actually surprised. The ratings have dropped 25% this week while he's been on 'vacation'. Usually this kind of thing blows over with time. I'm wondering if there aren't more women who they know are going to come forward so they're anticipating that the mess is going to get messier.

    I think Megyn Kelly made a big mistake leaving Fox News if she had just hung on she could possibly have taken Bill's slot and a pay bump. I can't see her move to NBC going well for her.

    I am a fan of O'reilly, and liked his show. I will keep this post pithy. There are far worse people on our airwaves than him. Good luck in your next endeavor O'reilly.

    what a mess that place is, they could also be in legal trouble because at least 5 of the settlements they paid out they tried to hide in their accounting as salaries.
