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
... I won´t miss BOR´s bloviating .... he´s a pandering opportunist... no real core values... plus, he appears to be a sexual socio-path... BILL clinton...BILL cosby...BILL o´reilly ...anyone else seeing a pattern here??
...now he has time to work on his new book : Killing My Career.
Well, that´s it for me and cable. Fox News and Turner Classic Movies is all I watch anyway. TCM is not what it was since Robert Osborne has been gone, and with O´Reilly out then there´s no reason to watch Fox anymore. What a craven bunch of weasels.
Never could understand why anyone would listen to him day in, day out! Full of himself and his stupid opinions....good riddance to bad rubbish....that´s how Bill Clinton should have been gotten rid of. Now he has all the credentials for running for a Dem office!
FTA: "Executives are currently debating possible replacement hosts. Names that have been discussed include Eric Bolling, Dana Perino, and Tucker Carlson, who would move from his successful 9 p.m. slot and create a need for a new host at that time. One source said Sean Hannity is happy at 10 p.m. and would not want to move."
"Late last week, the feeling inside the company was that Rupert Murdoch would prevail over his son James, who lobbied to jettison the embattled host. It’s still unclear exactly how the tide turned. According to one source, Lachlan Murdoch’s wife helped convince her husband that O’Reilly needed to go, which moved Lachlan into James’s corner."
The Murdoch sons are going to kill the goose that laid the golden egg. You can already see their imprint on FNC and it is NOT good. I see more and more individuals from Politico than I have ever seen before.
I´m no longer a fan of O´Reilly, that changed years ago when he totally caved to the vile Obama and covered for his transgressions. That said, what happened here is evidence of how powerful those on the left are, including the Murdoch sons. We should all be horrified and very afraid. If they can get rid of Bill O´Reilly, a powerful man and the cash cow of FNC, they can and will destroy anyone. The Democrats are the first to scream about McCarthyism. This is it on steroids. The Democrats specialize in it. They are doing the same with Trump.
Dana Perino should NEVER be allowed to fill that slot. She is weak, irritating and could never carry that show. Tucker should take that slot and move Martha McCallum to 90.
Marie Harf, Ezekial, Shep, Beckel, Juan Williams, Megyn McCain, Geraldo, Dana Perino stay... O´Reilly goes???? Fox is losing their mind. They changed when Trump ran for president & they will never be he same. They are better than abccbsnbccnn but they have room for improvement. I miss the old Fox! Hey Fox beware the left is out to get you & political correctness will destroy you!
#14 - yes he is entertaining, it´s fun to watch him dance around on both sides of an issue in order not to offend his no info viewers he says he is not an ideologue and has no values and I believe him with Tucker on now I rarely watch him anymore
I´ve never been a fan, but it´s not a good business move for Fox. On the other hand, I´ve always wondered why Hannity has never ever referenced O´Reilly, never been on his show, never mentioned his name over decades of his radio show. I suspect he knows O´Reilly is a slime.
FOX has certainly gone down the tubes with the younger Murdoch´s, I´ve had it with Fox when they put on that lying Marie Harf and Rom Emanual´s brother......Fox is turning into CNN & MSNBC combines....and NO to Dana Perino..in any spot....
#17, actually, the entertainment factor with BOR is his pomposity and bloviating, not to mention his relentless hawking of his books.I first starting watching his show because I was fascinated how he got away with his endless self-promotion. I also agree with him on some of his causes, like the war on Christmas. He is pretty good on illegal immigration, too. The ratings don´t lie. A lot of other people find him entertaining, too.
Don´t have to agree with everything anybody says, including O´Reilly. This is bad news, and no doubt lefties are celebrating their victory. Lately O´Reilly has been riding hard on the leaks, wiretapping, etc., and to shut him up it´s no surprise lefties crawled out from under their rocks. That the Murdoch boys want him out shows what their end game is for FOX -- just another alphabet no-news network. Once FOX´s makeover is done, then what? Tucker is okay, but there´s so much crosstalk and arguing. Perino´s whiny voice grates like fingernails on a chalkboard...
I agree...bad move for FOX and another victory for the Left who will try to ruin anyone they feel has too much power or success. Although I am disheartened by the direction of FOX under the "leadership" of the Murdoch brothers, in some ways it´s a deliberate suicide choice and I won´t be too upset to see their ratings go into the tank. Why is it the Liberals always point the finger towards the Trump children but you don´t hear one word against the Murdochs, who obviously are in the same situation...grew up and inherited a vast international empire. Then there´s adorable Chelsea, but that´s another story. As far as 0´Reilly, time will tell regarding the accusations (again, note how the media refused to cover Bill Clinton´s rape charges and are rabid about these allegations?)
I have to wonder if Bill´s contract has run it´s course. I would think it has or Fox would be stupid to fire him prior to the contract end. A big NO to Perino. No, no no! I don´t think she could carry an hour show night in and night out. I hope Bill can fight some legal wars with Gloria Allred´s spawn, Lisa Bloom. Those two play dirty and certainly not a good image to their already dubious profession.
The first time BOR was accused of sexual harassment it was settled out of court. You know the one that introduced loufah to American children. I didn´t know if there was anything to it or if it was a move for money. But, another time - and it´s looking like when the floodgates opened up on Tiger Woods - come on. I´m not going to give it a pass. I actually believe he became more emboldened because he got off the first time.
I´m so glad my life doesn´t revolve around TV and Fox like it used to. Except for watching Cavuto and Bair occasionally, I enjoy reading excellent books like the just finished A Man Called Ove. Fox has been slipping for a long time.
I note with sadness that there is the usual rush of Republicans to get in on the latest Dimmi kill. This is akin to zebras hanging back and watching the slaughter after the lions have brought down one of the herd.
Meanwhile far worse is protected and applauded by Dimmis and many Republicans. We are a herd species and stoopid but organized beats intelligent but fractured every time.
Why has nobody here questioned the truth of the accusers? What proof have they produced that anything happened? Do they have a recording or anything other than their verbal accusations? Are they just a bunch of gold diggers looking for Gloria Allred to make them (and herself) rich?
They always seem to accept the females verbal accusations as true without any regard to ruining peoples lives.
I´m not trying to defend OR. He can do that himself but lets get real here !!!
O´Reilly has been phoning it in for several months. He´s been acting like a smug substitute high-school teacher, interrupting his "guests" even more than usual and lecturing them like you´d speak to a child. It´s gotten downright embarrassing. He needs to go.
These allegations have been piling up for quite a while, just as his performance has plummeted. Fox News will do fine without him. No one is indispensable, no one.
Personally, I don´t care about the accusations and whether/not he did them and/or whomever is trying to be Killing O´Reilly. I have wanted him out of there for a long time, ever since he accused the oil industry of conspiring to raise the price of oil. Such a stupid liberal talking point that is, and he was all-in for that pov.
There are several really god possible replacements. Let´s just hope Fox see it my way.
Can we include the insufferable Abby Huntsman along with the aforementioned Fox people who should be eliminated from that station. I refuse to watch Fox with the exception of Bret Baier and a Fox &Friends in the am. It´s all downhill with the Murdoch´s.
Two of the women accusing BOR of boorish behavior have extremely weak cases. The black secretary said BOR ´leered´ at her, and on one occasion, gave a compliment calling her ´hot chocolate.´ He leers at everyone, and is an imposing figure, tall, gruff, and in charge. As for the precious flower of a girl psychologist, I say ´pshaw´ to her complaint that he invited her up to his room.
I´m probably the only one here that liked the Bill O´Reilly show..even with his bloviating. FOX news just wrote themselves into the ratings cellar for that time slot. Good by Fox News.
Actually, I hope BOR fights this frivolous and concocted case and wins a settlement from her and her sleazy attorney Lisa Bloom. Then uses the settlement to buy more wheel chairs for wounded warriors. Followed with him joining a new upcoming cable channel.
Former Disney star Michael Mantenuto, who was found dead this week after committing suicide, may have been troubled by his time with the Special Forces, his family said. The Miracle actor shot himself in the head in his car in Des Moines, Washington, on Monday. A coroner confirmed that the father-of-two intentionally took his own life. He left Hollywood in 2010 to join the US Army Special Forces, and became a decorated officer during his time there. During his most recent deployment, he was sent on Operation Inherent Resolve, with the mission of combating ISIS in Syria and Iraq, according

WASHINGTON — Former President Barack Obama will return to Chicago, the Sun-Times has learned, to deliver a speech Wednesday night to the Civic Committee of the Commercial Club of Chicago, where he will reflect on his two terms and his Obama Presidential Center. This comes days after Obama’s visit last Monday to his adopted hometown. According to an invitation obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times, Obama plans to “share his thoughts and vision for the Obama Presidential Center as well as some reflections on his administration.” The dinner will take place at The Chicago Club, 81 E. Van Buren. Obama’s tentative
Washington -Chuck Schumer is not only the leader of Democrats in the Senate. He´s also the smartest political mind of that group. Which makes what the New York Senator told MSNBC on Friday sort of perplexing. "If the President continues this way, there is a chance we could take back the Senate," Schumer said. I´m assuming that Schumer was referring to the 2018 midterms. And if he was, then man oh man was he being optimistic. Wildly so, even. Start here: Republicans control 52 seats to 48 for Democrats and Democratic-caucusing independents Angus King (Maine) and Bernie Sanders (Vermont). To retake
Thousands of people across the U.S. are marking President Donald Trump´s hundredth day in office by marching in protest of his environmental policies. In Washington, D.C., large crowds on Saturday were making their way down Pennsylvania Avenue, where they planned to encircle the White House. Organizers say about 300 other protest marches are expected around the country. Participants in the Peoples Climate March say they´re objecting to Trump´s rollback of restrictions on mining, oil drilling and greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants, among other things. In Augusta, Maine, protesters outside the statehouse said they wanted to draw attention to the
Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter’s Friday evening speech at Modesto Centre Plaza drew hundreds of GOP faithful as well as dozens of demonstrators who lined the sidewalk and lawn outside the downtown convention center to show their support and disgust for Coulter. The demonstrators appeared evenly split into two camps. The protest — which appeared to reach about 100 people at its peak — also brought out the news media, with TV stations from Sacramento, San Francisco and Fox News sending crews. There also were lots of Modesto officers in the crowd and nearby on horseback, motorcycles and bicycles. Police Chief
The respected leader, founder of the ‘Arise France’ movement, would serve as French Prime Minister in a national government, Marine Le Pen confirmed this morning at a joint press conference. The founder of the eurosceptic and sovereigntist party, ‘Arise France’, who won 4.7% of last week’s first round vote in the French presidential election, last night endorsed Marine Le Pen and announced an alliance to save the country from ‘’financial and media interests’’ seeking to install their preferred candidate, Emmanuel Macron, to the Elysée Palace. Globalist Emmanuel Macron would be ‘’ten times worse’’ than François Hollande, Dupont-Aignan told French television,
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says he hasn’t returned to his New York City home because “going back is very expensive for the country.” Trump tells Fox News in an interview Friday that he feels “guilty” when he returns to Trump Tower because authorities close surrounding streets and “I hate to see the New Yorkers with streets closed.” He says he goes to his clubs instead because they have “hundreds of acres” and streets stay open. But Trump says he’s always accused of “having fun” or playing golf at his clubs; he says he’s always working. The White House rarely
In 1945 a man named Todd Webb was discharged from the Navy and moved to New York City to begin his career as a professional photographer. The Museum of the City of New York has showcased some of his photos in New York to highlight his exploration of the city that enthralled him. Beautiful images show the city in the years immediately following the Second World War. These photos, paired next to pictures taken by a DailyMail.com photographer, show the striking difference between New York City following the war and the way that it appears today. New York City has
As President Trump reaches his 100-day mark in office, an unfriendly news media has done much to undermine his efforts. Trump voters appear to be ignoring it all, says Ford O´Connell, a political strategist and an adjunct professor at the George Washington University Graduate School of Political Management. “Employing a blitzkrieg-style deluge of misleading headlines, both online and in print, coupled with a heavy diet of 89 percent negative broadcast network news coverage of Trump, the groupthink of the liberal media bubble has tried mightily to portray President Trump’s first 100 days in office as the worst political disaster of
Only a day before journalists are set to meet at their annual self-congratulatory dinner, a new poll finds that their intended customers, the American people, don’t trust them. Indeed, the poll finds Americans trust the Trump White House to tell the truth more than they do the media. The poll taken of 2,006 adults between April 23 and 26 is certainly bad news for the political media as 37 percent of respondents said they trust the Trump White House, while only 29 percent said they trust the media. Worse for the media, the day before their April 29 dinner, the
President Donald Trump pledged to never infringe on the 2nd Amendment during a speech at the National Rifle Association’s meeting in Atlanta, Ga., on Friday. “We all took an oath to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States, and that means defending the 2nd Amendment. So let me make a simple to every one of the freedom-loving Americans in the audience today: as your president, I will never, ever infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms – never, ever,” Trump said. (Video) “Freedom is not a gift from government. Freedom is a gift
After a leisurely three month vacation, Michelle Obama has made her first public appearance since the inauguration. Looking refreshed and relaxed after her three-month vacation, the former first lady greeted the audience with a smile and a wave at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017 in Florida on Thursday. Obama was the keynote speaker at the event, organized by the American Institute of Architects, where she spoke about her time as Chicago´s assistant commissioner of planning and development. The former first lady wore a long black, white and beige dress which showed off her toned arms at the event as she also
Saturday marks President Trump’s 100th day in office, and to celebrate the occasion he got a bit too candid in an Oval Office interview with Reuters. Obviously certain elements of being president are pretty fun, but President Trump has discovered that it isn’t all playing with trucks and pressing a button that makes Cokes appear. Sometimes there’s work to be done, and as it turns out being leader of the free world is a lot harder than running a fake university and playing a caricature of a rich person on TV.“I loved my previous life. I had so many things
So how much of our money did Obama ship to the terrorist regime in Iran? We hear $150 billion. We are not sure. Could be a dollar less, a dollar more. We’ll never know for sure. That’s because his entire administration operated in the dark. That’s how he governed and that’s how he got himself elected, in lies and in stealth, and the news media did the rest. They covered for him. They let him get away with murder – and in this case, that is not a cliché, it’s fact. Today, in eye-popping news, we learn, from the New York Post via
He has floated some conspiracy theories for years, but now President Donald Trump will get to play a crucial role in the long-running saga over the government´s Kennedy assassination records. The 1992 JFK Assassination Records Collection Act, signed by President George H.W. Bush, set a 25-year timetable for declassification of assassination records dealing with President Kennedy. The law set up a single collection of records at the National Archives, and set up a process for declassification. The law required the release of all government records dealing with the assassination within 25 years – with the exception of those the president certifies for
Baltimore’s mayor asked the FBI to send in reinforcements Wednesday to help the city get its murders under control. Mayor Catherine Pugh, speaking at a news conference, explained she went to the FBI’s Baltimore office for extra agents to join with police officers in combating a skyrocketing murder count, reports CNN. “Murder is out of control. There are too many guns on the streets. We’re looking for all the help we can get,” Pugh said. The city already has 101 murders for the year, a number not seen in almost 20 years. The mayor’s spokesperson warned the violence could rise
Muslim reformer Zuhdi Jasser has recently attacked leaders of the anti-Jihad movement in America. He equated them with jihadists when he called them the derogatory word, alt-jihadists, meaning that Americans who speak and write against the evils of Islamic jihad and sharia are just as bad as jihadists. (snip)I have always respected what Zuhdi Jasser was trying to do and avoided contradicting him in public, even though I do not believe that Islam is reformable. I have kept my opinion to myself regarding the false hope Muslim reformers are giving to the Americans regarding Islam. But when Jasser attacked leaders
The many versions of Caitlyn Jenner, chronicled in her new book, The Secrets of My Life, have passed through a dizzying series of variations, from a Wheaties box-ready, gold medal-winning Olympian in her former identity as Bruce, to the henpecked husband and paterfamilias of the Kardashian clan and featured player in their reality-television juggernaut, to—at age 65, when she announced her biggest secret to the world—the planet’s most famous transgender woman. (Video)The now 67-year-old Jenner, who has been a celebrity for most of her time on earth and spent the past two years as the nation’s highest-profile activist for LGBTQ
Governor of Ohio John Kasich urged Donald Trump to “take out” the top leadership in North Korea in order to solve the looming nuclear weapon problem. “We are getting very serious that they cannot have an ICBM. There’s a point at which saber-rattling is not effective, and you have to be very careful on how you approach that,” Kasich said at the Monitor Breakfast in Washington Friday. “I think you have to be careful that you get to a certain point. What do I think is going to happen there? I think the THAAD is the first big leverage I’ve
When someone is honestly 55 percent right, that’s very good and there’s no use wrangling. And if someone is 60 percent right, it’s wonderful, it’s great luck, and let him thank God. But what’s to be said about 75 percent right? Wise people say this is suspicious. Well, and what about 100 percent right? Whoever says he’s 100 percent right is a fanatic, a thug, and the worst kind of rascal. — An old Jew of Galicia In the final stretch of last year’s presidential race, Hillary Clinton and her team thought they were, if not 100 percent right, then very close.
(Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch today released new State Department documents including a declaration from FBI Special Agent E.W. Priestap, the supervisor of the agency’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email activities, stating that the former secretary of state was the subject of a grand jury investigation related to her BlackBerry email accounts. (Snip) In the filing Priestap declares under penalty of perjury that the FBI “obtained Grand Jury subpoenas related to the Blackberry e-mail accounts, which produced no responsive materials, as the requested data was outside the retention time utilized by those providers.” On April 30, 2015, Judicial Watch sued
Sergio Canavero, a controversial professor and neurosurgeon, wants to perform the first human head transplant in December. He told German magazine OOOM that the procedure will take place in China. According to the Observer, it will take 80 surgeons, 36 hours and $10 million to execute. Like a sci-fi tale come to life, Canavero, who’s also the former director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, claims that people whose brains have been cryogenically frozen could be revived within three years. “At the moment, I can only disclose that there has been massive progress in medical experiments that would have seemed
Britain’s largest national student union has told attendees of its annual conference they would face “consequences” for cheering and clapping because these forms of expression exclude deaf people. The National Union of Students (NUS), which includes most university student unions, held a two-day conference on Tuesday. During the conference, audience members were repeatedly warned that they must stop whooping and expressing support for a speaker because it has “serious impact” on the accessibility of the conference, The Daily Telegraph reported. Instead of clapping, the students were advised to use “jazz hands” – a gesture when people wave their hands in
