Bubye Bill, it couldn't have happened to a sleazier jerk.

Bill O’Reilly Is Forced Out at Fox News


Bill O’Reilly has been forced out of his position as a prime-time host on Fox News, the company said on Wednesday, after the disclosure of multiple settlements involving sexual harassment allegations against him. His ouster brings an abrupt and embarrassing end to his two-decade reign as one of the most popular and influential commentators in television.

“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, Fox News’s parent company, said in a statement.

Mr. O’Reilly’s departure comes two and a half weeks after an investigation by The New York Times revealed how Fox News and 21st Century Fox had repeatedly stood by Mr. O’Reilly even as sexual harassment allegations piled up against him. The Times found that the company and Mr. O’Reilly reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him. The agreements totaled about $13 million.


Apparently he won't be back on the air at Fox at all. Starting Monday, Tucker Carlson will be in O'Reilly's old slot. As a tribute to the deposed former king of right-wing cable media, here's a video (some profanity from Bill O'Reilly) that I've always enjoyed:



Now with Roger Ailes AND Bill O'Reilly out, I could see them looking to start a competitor to Fox News. When's Hannity's contract up?

There'll be a Breitbart News Channel soon enough and he'll be the main anchor.
Either that or he'll write a sh*tty book to sell to his diehards.

Good riddance.

Get ready for a mass exodus of viewers from Fox.

The second O'Reilly is broadcasting from somewhere else, the exodus will take on biblical proportions.

It's funny Liberals think this is a win for them.

I'm glad the uninformed cannabis hater needs to be forced out.

I like Tucker.

I would say it's a big win for all of America.

You know, I try not to laugh at people's downfalls.
Especially when it means they're out of work and lose a wage...

But some people just deserve it.
He's one of them. Creep.

Somehow I doubt that.

Supposedly, they are signing on Tomi Lahren to replace O'Reilly.

Say what you want about the network, but FOX has its fingers on the pulse of media in this country.

His last broadcast gave him one more opportunity to lie to his viewers one last time telling them he's taking a scheduled vacation!

So long Bill! You suck and I hope women you harassed continue to sue YOU now that Fox News isn't flipping YOUR bill!

First Megyn Kelly drops into obscurity and now O'Reilly.

So much winning!

Promotion for Hannity now?


Bill will just retire and write more books. I have a feeling Bill will grow regretful in his final years, realizing that he used his power to do more harm than good in life.

I hope they make Chris Wallace the lead person now.

yay! The only thing I ever liked about that show was Jesse Waters. Replace it with Waters' World!

You may be right. But then again, O'Reilly now has nobody to reign him in.

Yeah I was thinking something along those lines too and I just updated the OP to include a bit about it. I could definitely see Ailes and O'Reilly strying to start a new cable news channel though I'm not sure they could line up the funding or the talent at this point.

The NYT reported about a week ago that O'Reilly lost more than half his advertisers in a week.

I never cared much for him at all.

I read a rundown on his 'Killing Kennedy' book, and he is just another one of the 'step and fetch its' for TPTB.

Typically I am the same way but that man has done a lot of damage. There's a special place in Hell for people who have worked in right wing media.
