Bill O’Reilly Out at Fox News

Written by  Kemberlee Kaye

Tucker Carlson to move to his time slot

A growing pile of sexual harassment allegations resulted in Bill O’Reilly’s departure from Fox News. Up through Tuesday night, O’Reilly’s spokesperson was assuring reporters he would return to the network April 24th.

In a very brief statement, 21st Century Fox said:

From the New York Times:

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.

Since then, more than 50 advertisers had abandoned his show, and women’s rights groups called for his ouster. Inside the company, women expressed outrage and questioned whether top executives were serious about maintaining a culture based on “trust and respect,” as they had promised last summer when another sexual harassment scandal forced the ouster of Fox News’s chairman, Roger Ailes.

My fear is that like they did to Trump, Obama and all of his Saul Alinsky "Rules for Radicals" (dedicated to Lucifer) evildoers, have concocted a way to start their closing down Fox News as was Obama's goal in order to completely control the media. Since O'Reilley was one of the forces at Fox, it may help to close them down. I understand that since Rupert Murdoch's sons have gotten on board, they are really left leaning, and you can notice it from a year ago(when it happened) that the left guests are getting more time and the last word on most programs. pay very close attention, because the goal to shut down any opposition is still very much happening and Obama, Jarrett, Holder and all of the rest of them are still working against Trump in promoting One World Order!

Gosh, I didn't realize that O'Reilly had been found guilty of any crimes. In fact, I don't remember reading or hearing that he had even been charged with a crime. Interesting that Fox can simply kick him to the curb for...?

I am really sorry to see him leave. He was the most honest reporter on TV and always made thoughtful presentations of the news. I wonder how long it will be before Fox Network News will be extinguished by our Democratic friends. Even though men and women are supposed to be equal, men cannot make a remark or joke or any comment about any woman. I have never heard of a woman losing her job or being sued by any man though I suppose it must have happened, all things being equal.

Yep, but all things are not equal. It's a damn shame that Fox thought so little of him that they did not fight for him.

If this is true, I want be watching at all

Funny they dont seem to b saying exactly what it is he said or did so that we all know the facts and unless he raped or held their job for sex ransome than none of them should have been awarded 11 million dollars . Grow up ! People are sexual. Just tell them ur not interested ... End of problem

Looks like it's time to have Women's channels and men's channels separate. What was done? what was said? who decided he was guilty? I smell a rat!!

You can smell Bill O'Reilly?

This has nothing to do with conservative or not! It has everything to do with being "Stupid" !
I will miss his show as well as many others. This should not be tolerated regardless who the personality might be.
unless your name is ___________ you can fill in the blank.

This is very sad. I'd not heard about all the allegations. I don't know why conservative media men think they can escape from the spot light if they act inappropriately with or toward the opposite sex. Maybe it's because "everyone else is doing it". When I listen to my local conservative radio station, it's the same thing. These are the "good ole boys" who never seem to grow up when it comes to potty humor on the air that is very offensive to lady listeners. Sometimes I really have to turn them off they get so bad. Mr. O'Reilly never really did that kind of thing on the air. I guess it was his behavior behind the scenes. I hate to see Tucker take his place because Tucker is a little green around the ears. They need to put someone in there who is serious about the news and who has a mature perspective. Goodbye Mr. O. Those of us who appreciated your on-air personality will miss you.

Unbelievable ! Where will we get the news that we can trust with no spin? This is all a bunch of bullsh*t! The Clintons can do anything and get away with it, the Left and politically correctness is destroying our country with their lies and half truths. Bill was a patriot and will be truly missed. I believe he represented truth,justice and the American way. I guess their next target
will be Lou Dobbs then Cavuto. Some people do not want to hear the truth,thus find some way to silence it.

Lou Dobbs or Neil Cavuto would be fantastic. So much better than anyone on The Five.

That's their mission! Suppress speech that counters their lies! And remove anyone who disagrees!! Fox will be full of Shepard Smith types in due time! I get all my news and facts from radio now. Or online. They are starting to attack those outlets as well!

Obviously, we can count you among the people that do not want to hear the truth.
