Watch Brian Williams Cover O’Reilly’s Departure, Wondering If People Could Have Foreseen This

Written by  Curtis Houck

The awkwardness for viewers of MSNBC’s The 11th Hour on Wednesday had to have been through the roof as host Brian Williams tried to tiptoe his way through covering Bill O’Reilly’s axing from the Fox News Channel.

This, of course, wass in light of Williams’s separate scandal from 2015 that led to his own disgrace and downfall from NBC Nightly News.

Williams turned to the O’Reilly sexual harassment matter just past the 11:30 p.m. Eastern mark, reporting that O’Reilly was “gone from Fox News” and read statements from both 21st Century Fox and O’Reilly.

After introducing MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle and Los Angeles Times writer Steve Battalgio, Williams hilariously wondered what would people say if he had told them a few years ago that both O’Reilly and Roger Ailes would be gone:

Welcome to you both and, Steve, our goal here is not to relitigate the Bill O’Reilly case but rather to talk about the impact, the stuff you cover on a daily basis. Would you have believed if I'd told you two, three years guy that Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly would exit Fox News months apart and, oh by the way, it would during a Trump presidency?

Ann, just a little confused are you. Rupert Murdock is father to the Murdock boys, not Roger Ailes.

Hell, this had been going on for years. The Network is partly to blame imo as well, thus the time frame and the $13M in hush monies. Questionable lawyers in there too don't help matters.
