Default Bill O’Reilly Out At Fox News

More at the source:

Quote:
The Murdochs have decided Bill O’Reilly’s 21-year run at Fox News will come to an end. According to sources briefed on the discussions, network executives are preparing to announce O’Reilly’s departure before he returns from an Italian vacation on April 24. Now the big questions are how the exit will look and who will replace him.

Wednesday morning, according to sources, executives are holding emergency meetings to discuss how they can sever the relationship with the country’s highest-rated cable-news host without causing collateral damage to the network. The board of Fox News’ parent company, 21st Century Fox, is scheduled to meet on Thursday to discuss the matter.

Good. I lost respect for O'Reilly when George Will called him out for lying about the Ronald Reagan and the Reagan White House to sell his stupid book.

I never understood what the masses found so appealing about the loud mouthed ignorant SOB. The broadcast industry will be better off without him.

...absolute power corrupts absolutely.

If the allegations are HALF true (and paying out 13,000,000) is a pretty good indication that they are, then he got PART of what he deserved. He should probably get some criminal charges..,

When he first hit the network way back when, I was able to more or less stomach him as a background drone as I'd be fixing dinner.

Even then, he came off as abrasive, rude and simply unpleasant.
