Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is out of his job, according to a statement from the cable channel’s corporate parent Wednesday. The host of the top-rated cable TV news show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” was let go amid allegations of sexual harassment and other inappropriate behavior, sources said. “After a thorough and careful review of allegations against him, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Mr. O’Reilly will not return to the Fox News Channel,” said a statement from 21st Century Fox Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch and his sons, Lachlan and James Murdoch. “This decision follows an extensive review done in
Comments: Glad to see the pompous ass go. Whatever happened to the morality clause? Networks just pay out till too much?
"Sentence first — verdict afterwards", said the Red Queen...
I don´t know what, if anything, O´Reilly did. Actual facts are scarce. But apparently all that is necessary these days to take out a white, male, non-liberal target is for a bunch of women to get lawyers and CLAIM things. The latest is a woman who claimed O´Reilly harassed her and then went on his show 13 times after that.
Tucker Carlson does a better job of teeing-up and destroying leftwingers, and he does not have to rely on talking over them or interrupting. I do hope however that he has fewer of them on the show & more opportunities for non-leftists to contribute.
Bill O´Reilly made Fox what is is today and has earned the respect of his peers as a journalist and commentator over many decades. He will be missed by those who are fair and balanced. That said, the lesson to all old and powerful men is this: DO NOT MIX BUSINESS WITH PERSONAL MATTERS! Women are NOT interested in you except for your power and what it can do for them whatever you think they are telling you over dinner. Lisa Bloom and her mom are now going to move on to the next hunting ground and take another rich slob´s scalp for their trophy room. I´m reminded of Tommy Lee Jones´ line from the movie of the same name. "This is no country for old men".
#10, I think this feels unsettling not because many have a fondness for O´Reilly or are die-hard fans of him or of his program.
To me, it feels unsettling because I worry that FOX News is moving increasingly leftward as Rupert grows older and his privileged, less conservative children take over more of the network´s leadership.
We don´t need another lefty network--we have plenty of them already.
Let´s see now. A former President of the United States committed sexual acts with a subordinate young woman in the nation´s premier work place. We were lectured continually by the press that one´s personal behaviors, no matter how abhorrent, were separate from one´s ability to do one´s job. This President was disbarred, fined, and impeached but continued to hold his job with continued adulation from the media.
But it seems where Mr. O´Reilly is concerned, all of those forgiving opinions have been reversed.
Personally, I thank Mr. O´Reilly for his fair reportage and for his dedication to his work and to his network.
It is hoped that Mr. O´Reilly finds comfort from his supportive audience - he is wished well.
They were great back in the day, but politics have greatly changed, and younger and educated people are far more engaged than they were prior to President Trump, as evidenced by Tucker Carlson´s unbelievable ratings.
The information regarding the new schedule is below from another article on our site:
Starting Monday, Fox will air Tucker Carlson’s show an hour earlier, in O’Reilly’s 8 p.m. ET slot, and move the popular ensemble show “The Five” from 5 to 9 p.m. On May 1, “Five” member Eric Bolling will debut a one-hour program at 5 p.m., and Martha MacCallum will make her “First 100 Days” show permanent at 7 p.m.
At least Perino wasn´t considered for a show. I guess I will now read at 9pm. Nothing about The Five is enjoyable, especially if they keep the odious Beckle and Williams.
I think O´Reilly really got hosed by Fox News when he got number one ratings for them for 20 years. They could have at least let him say goodbye to his viewers. That´s low. It´s even worse when all of these allegations haven´t been proven and are being posited by Lisa Bloom, the daughter of the leftist hack Gloria Allred. It didn´t seem to bother them for the last 19 years.
Those on the left are probably gleefully doing high fives. They got a real trophy this time. Now it´s time to move on to their next victim. Who will that unfortunate person be?
Fox News is run by hypocrites. Are they going to remove everyone that does something inappropriate? If they did, in a short time they would have nobody to put on the air. Bill O´Reilly is getting axed because he did not do a hatchet job on Trump.
Yes, he was pompous, interruptive, hard to take, often insufferable. Details will come out. I trust the evidence is solid. If not FoxNews has made a huge error against this man. He used his considerable power for a lot of good, innumerable times. Vets will always remember him, in particular for those life-expanding $15K wheelchairs and other efforts. He was on our side. When you need allies, be careful about using ´´liking´´ as criteria, it´s petty and shortsighted. His books are special and are History the left is removing from our schools and shared collective knowledge. But for me his greatest contribution was his assist to President Trump. I was slow to Trump but increasingly view him as human, a flawed man, but nothing short of Divine Intervention for our great nation, considering the awful alternative available last Nov 8.
The left will be gunning for Hannity and Tucker Carlson next. None of the accusers of O´Reilly complained to the H.R. dept. of Fox News. No one even called into the anonymous harassment tip line. This is why Trump is trying to get lawsuit reform passed. Anyone can claim something happened and sue. If they lose it´s not any money out of their pocket. If the person being sued, doesn´t want to fight, for whatever reason and settles out of court, the person suing cleans up. If the person suing doesn´t have to pay if they lose, this will continue to happen.
I liked #7, but must add that BOR did not solely make FOX what it is today (spiraling downward, truth be told.) And he has a long history of lack of sexual restraint. I don´t respect, idolize, or affirm him at all. Just another rich guy who thought he knew more than everybody else in the world, who got caught with his pants down. I pity his children.
O´Reilly is responsible for making FNC a ratings champion. It is unfortunate that he was a flawed man. Before he went on vacation, he had Charles Krauthammer on continued to talk over him. You could tell Krauthammer wanted to tell him to shup up. O´Reilly will end up somewhere, but I am delighted Tucker Carlson is getting the time slot. He´s FNC´s new up and commer.
The Five at 9(8 central) just ain´t gonna work. That bunch is NOT prime time, at least in its current lineup. There just too much goofery and too little substance to spend an hour of prime time with them. They are okay at 4/5, when you´re making dinner or feeding the dogs or just half listening to them in your background. But to sit still and pay attention to them at 8/9??? No way no how.
They´re not useful either following the earlier time slot or as a lead in to the late one. Bolling and Guilfoyle are the only ones I can take seriously and they just can´t carry the load every night. Whoever is doing the scheduling at Fox News doesn´t give a dayum about their audience...
Carlson is great, but I think they are fools to dismiss O´Reilly---they have no clue who their base audience is, and in terms of news he was very fair. If "they" cared about harassment, why not care about Clinton with his rapes and bitten lips and cats killed, etc. This is the Soros group once again, and the Murdoch boys are clueless and so desperate to be friends with the NEWS people that they will be throwing away what makes Fox special---going for 20 something Dems? As to The Five, I could barely stand it at 5 p.m., so 9????? Why not someone like Ben Styne? Someone decent. This will be Eyewitness News for the witless.
Ailes built the network, featuring attractive ´beauty queens´ (and several actually were beauty queens) to deliver the news. While the ´eye candy´ made the network more ´watchable´ (for me, too), it is not too surprising that the ´temptation´ was there and had a consequence. While we still do not know who did or did not do what, the harassment allegations should have surprised no one.
While not particularly a BOR fan, I can understand his vulnerability to the temptations and suspicions. (All men are ´pigs´, afterall. Those hormones that the Creator provided for procreation purposes do have a down side. /s) Add in the power and arrogance, and you have a dangerous mix.
While we can engage in gratuitous ´clucking´, the more substantive problem is the drift of FNC to the left. That will ultimately determine the fate of FNC.
Bill´s not my cup of tea (although his visits with Dennis Miller and Bernie Goldberg are worth a quick watch) ... but I was listening to a local talk show and the host mentioned although he didn´t know O´Reilly, he pointed out that CBS stood by David Letterman after he admitted (and paid out for) his on-the-job affairs and Letterman´s advertisers didn´t bail on him when that happened ... and he continued on for 3 or 4 more years until he quit on his own terms.
Big Fox under the newbies has now gotten rid of two people who made them the crown jewel of cable news. What a bunch of jerks. Kill the golden geese... Say what you will, about the brains that built the place and the one who sustained it and filled the stockholders´ pockets. Being slayed in the public square is no way to run a place. Meanwhile, the likes of Maddow dithers on elsewhere! I don´t think they could plan a third grader´s birthday party. It was fun and lucrative while it lasted, Boys!
And that my friends is why VP Pence will not have lunch or dinner alone with another woman. Too many Anita Hills out there.. I don´t believe it all...I am not a big fan of BOR but..pockets are deep and book deals to be had by his accusers..
Big mistake and for all the reasons stated above. LDotters are an astute bunch who never fail to get to the heart of an issue while bringing more info into the conversation than was contained in the article. The decision made by Fox News will not end well. Fox was successful because of its Fair and Balanced stance which admittedly has been beginning to slide to the left. People initially flocked there to finally hear another side of the story. They will not stay to hear leftist propaganda. Apparently, the Murdoch boys are willing to trade the top rated cable network for a seat at the liberal table. However, someone will step up and fill the void. The audience is already there.
This isn’t about O’Reilly and his accusers. It’s about Murdoch’s kids making a move on the franchise and dragging it left so that they can expiate their guilt at being so rich and ingratiate themselves with their leftist peers. Don’t look for Tucker Carlson or any other conservative to last long, and look elsewhere for your news.
Just read a big Michael Wolff article on O´Reilly, Fox and the Murdoch young en´s and it is clear that they plan on moving Fox in a "new direction": to the Left. Apparently Rupert is saying "I told you so" but did not stop them from dismissing O´Reilly without any REAL court charges being filed against him or complaints to Fox Human Relations, etc. Rupert wanted to fight, the sons not so much. What a bunch of total idiots!!!!!! If they remotely think they will keep their lead, their audiences with these movements they are total fools, and their putting "The Five" in at prime 9 o´clock just proves the point. As one poster said, wisely, cocktail chatter suitable for feeding the dog and preparing dinner but.......I can´t even handle them for that anymore! You have to wonder if the sons aren´t just REACTING to a very remarkable father, trying to prove their own worth.
O´Reilly never really clicked with me, but I wonder about the allegations. Why do you think Pence never goes anywhere without his wife?
Everyone touching Washington DC is watched and recorded. Their histories are exhumed and any proclivities are noted and exploited. If there is dirt, it will be noted. If there isn´t anything scandalous found, they will do there best to manufacture it.
Another Bill, ie. Cosby went on for years with nothing affecting his career, until he spoke out against the culture that keeps African Americans enslaved to the Elites.
O´Reilly may have done nothing wrong, but if it could be made to LOOK wrong, he became vulnerable.
Many good men and women have gone to Washington, ready to change the world.
But they were not careful in who they trusted, or gave in to temptation and we´re trapped by the ruthless manipulators who control and corrupt everyone they can to protect their illicit power.
I think they got Ailes the same way. When you´ve got company lawyers saying "Don´t worry, we got this." All it does is set the sword to your neck for their chosen moment.
BOR was my hero in the early 2000´s. Over time it became clear he would arrive at these strange positions on issues that were neither mainstream nor conservative. Don´t agree with him? Oooh hoo he will cut off any dissenters and say, "That´s a bunch of bunk!". He became unwatchable. He´s just too arrogant. This sexual harassment issue is not new...walks like a duck, talks like a duck. It happened back in 2004 and got swept under the rug. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/oreilly-sued-for-sex-harassment/

What the heck is wrong with people who get so famous? I just doubt that he´d have gotten dumped if there wasn´t something to all this. So many of these people have it all ... and for some reason think they can get away with it all. I liked O´Reilly in the beginning, but it was always about him. I haven´t watched regularly in years. He runs people over. Frankly, I don´t care if he´s on the air or not. I like Special Report and watch Hannity sometimes and like Tucker Carlson. Politicians and swelled-headed opinion talking heads ought to take this as a lesson. Sooner or later, Karma gets you.
His style has run the gamut. I thank him for being there when he was. Lest we forget, nearly everyone loved him at the beginning. Now it´s over. No biggy. A foundational presence he WAS. We have strength in numbers, vis a vis, the 2016 election. Stay the course and above all, stay vigilant. We are winning. MAGA!
Why are they keeping Beckle on The Five? He is a rude, obnoxious, ignorant old fool. He adds nothing to the show except a bit of sleaze factor. Does he have pictures of someone - there is no possible other reason to have him on. He has never added anything of note to any conversation.
#5 and #7 - I understand your points but Fox News paid out $13 million with the full consent of Bill O´Reilly to shut these women up. That implies guilt whether the accusations were true or not. Maybe a lesson learned here is for businesses to stop letting themselves be rolled.
One of the accusers was on TV this morning squawking about equality for women and women´s rights. How about equality for women who aren´t young or are average in looks? With few exceptions, you won´t see them on Fox.
I believe this is a huge blow to conservatism. I get the he is a blowhard and an arrogant mindset but I also truly believe he loves the United States of America and was truly looking out for people. Who now is going to take up the mantle for Kate’s Law and other such wonderful causes? We had the number one program on cable news on our side and I think this is really leaving a hole there. Who is number one now, Rachel Maddow? Good Lord. But – I understand, he did this himself. I really feel let down by Bill. His empire is now gone, and so am I. This is just unthinkable…
Hubris is never accorded the blame it deserves for toppling the mighty. With Hillary, the arrogance came from hubris. Same with O´Reilly. People get too big for their britches - a simple old saying, but it describes hubris perfectly. Hubris may topple Trump - time will tell.
Just listened to Limbaugh "explaining" a lot of this (besides the very left wing wife of the Murdoch "boys" who were for O"Reeilly´s head), The Times publishes how much O´Reilly makes and how large his audience is. Then they mention the women "harassed". Then the sponsors get up to 10,000 e-mails calling for them to dump him----usually generated by Botts and maybe ten people in all sending them, but the sponsors don´t understand this. Then O"Reilly is dumped, so Fox can become just like all the other network and CNN/MSNBC stations---and eventually just disappear. Let´s hope some other smart people start a NEW Net to take its place.
A lotta´ bullpucky here. O´Reilly´s firing by Fox is just one more move by the left to limit conservatives access to news about real conservative issues.
I don´t like the WattersWorld and Comedian crap on "The Factor", but O´Reilly´s reporting on real conservative issues is the best on TV. The lib***ds shut him down, so we now get only "I don´t want to offend" Baier and "Lightweight Debate" Carlsen!
Between barring conservative speakers like Coulter and getting rid of conservative reporters like O´Reilly, I´d say Soros and his gang are winning (while we write comments on the Internet)!
If you haven´t heard about it, there is another network that has been on now since 2013. And it was created to be specifically a conservative news institution. It´s called One American News Network, known as OAN or OANN. It was created by Robert Herring who also owns the Washington Times. He created the network to give Fox some competition in the conservative news broadcasting. I know that it´s fairly new but my cable company carries it and it´s well worth the watch. If your cable network doesn´t have it, try to get them to carry it.
What about all the criminals at the other networks that openly support the DNC and anything that band of evildoers does? It seems far more egregious to me that his transgressions. They should be before ethical boards if not grand juries.
Unfortunately, I don´t doubt for one minute that he engaged in the accused behavior but we all know that´s what powerful men do and ambitious women are drawn to them like a moth to the flame. It´s most unfortunate that in the end they are rewarded with money because their behavior was really no better than his .
David Brooks and media matters are the scum bags running this scam. Why are we not doing opposition research on them ? It´s all very disturbing .
Insurance companies know that if you settle, you invite more claims. That is why they hold out for trials. Fox is learning this lesson th hard way. How did the amount of Gretchen Carlson´s settlement become public? That is what started it all.
Yes, OAN is quite good. Definitely worth watching. If you didn´t know Herring and his daughters were eXTREMELY pivotal in Trump´s election – – financially and in many other ways. Google the family it´s very interesting. better yet, there was actually an article about them on Lucianne. See if you can´t find it in the archives .
On what could be a record-hot day, tens of thousands of demonstrators assembled in Washington on Saturday for the latest installment of the regular protests that punctuate the Trump era. This large-scale climate march marks President Trump’s first 100 days in office, which have been punctuated by multiple rollbacks of environmental protections and Obama climate policies. The Peoples Climate March, which originated with a massive demonstration in New York in September 2014, picked a symbolically striking day for its 2017 event. Temperatures could exceed 90 degrees and possibly set a record for April 29 in the District,
New york - Two conservative journalists have sparked outcry on social media by making what some have interpreted as a white supremacist hand symbol at a recent visit to the White House. Freelance journalist Mike Cernovich and Cassandra Fairbanks, a reporter for Russian news outlet Sputnik, posed for a picture behind the podium in the White House briefing room. In the photo, they are making a hand sign that can be used to signify “white power.” “Just two people doing a white power hand gesture in the White House,” Fusion senior reporter Emma Roller tweeted, alongside a screenshot of the picture.
Mexico City - Mexico´s lower house overwhelmingly passed a bill Friday approving the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes, the latest in a series of legal changes and court rulings that have somewhat relaxed cannabis laws in Mexico. The measure does not allow smoking marijuana, but directs the Health Department to "design public policies to regulate the medicinal use of this plant and its derivatives." The bill passed Friday by a 374-7 vote with 11 abstentions allows growing marijuana for medicinal or scientific purposes. The legislation now goes to President Enrique Pena Nieto to be signed into law.
President Donald Trump has racked up an historic amount of travel expenses in his first 100 days in office, by far surpassing the president who came before him. Mr Trump has made a point of repeatedly visiting his private Mar-a-Lago resort and golf course, which he and his administration have referred to as the “winter White House,” on the weekends. Those Florida trips require a nearly 1,000 mile flight aboard Air Force One south from Washington. Joining the president on that journey are cargo planes carrying motorcade limousines, aircraft transporting staff for security sweeps, and the deployment of the Coast Guard in the waters
Tom Hanks has gifted coffee machines to the White House press corps three times since President George W. Bush took office, and the Academy Award-winning actor has a simple explanation why. “I’ve done that for Democrats and Republican administrations because those poor bastards need coffee,” Mr. Hanks told television host Stephen Colbert on Friday. “It’s as simple as that.” “I think this president might be keeping them up anyway,” Mr. Colbert responded. Mr. Hanks, 60, made his initial offering in 2004 after he toured the White House and was baffled by the absence of a decent coffeemaker inside the corps’ break room.
The website of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA.gov, is getting a makeover to reflect the views of President Donald Trump and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, the agency said on Friday. “As EPA renews its commitment to human health and clean air, land and water, our website needs to reflect the views of the leadership of the agency,” it said in a statement. Trump, a climate change doubter, campaigned on a pledge to boost the U.S. oil and gas drilling and coal mining industries by slashing regulation. He also promised to pull Washington out of a global pact to fight climate change.
Lockheed Martin Corp is being awarded a $1.38 billion (1.07 billion pounds) defence contract for 130 F-35 Lightning II aircraft, the Pentagon said on Friday. The advance acquisition contract covers long-lead time materials, parts, components and work for low-rate initial production of the fighter jets for the Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, non-U.S. Department of Defence participants and foreign military sales customers, the Pentagon said in a statement.
The argument that even an "immaterial" error on official paperwork can justify deportation, put forward by the Trump administration in a recent Supreme Court case, would be sufficient to deport the President´s wife, Melania. The First Lady of the United States reportedly failed to disclose earnings from nearly two months of illegal work in the USA on a visitor´s visa, and subsequently failed to mention the offence on immigration documents. A Serbian woman was recently deported for failing to disclose her husband´s history in the military, thus setting a technical precedent for deporting Ms Trump, as Slate reports.
Sasebo - As tension spikes on the Korean peninsula, a French amphibious assault carrier sailed into Japan´s naval base of Sasebo on Saturday ahead of drills that risk upsetting China, which faces U.S. pressure to rein in North Korea´s arms programs. The Mistral will lead exercises next month near Guam, along with forces from Japan, the United States and Britain, practicing amphibious landings around Tinian, an island about 2,500 km (1,553 miles) south of the Japanese capital of Tokyo.

(Video) Washington - Surrounded by members of Alaska´s congressional delegation, President Donald Trump on Friday signed an executive order that directs the Interior Department to rethink some of President Barack Obama´s regulations and decrees that put large swaths of the Arctic Ocean off limits to oil drilling. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said the order will require him to review previously issued five-year development plans for offshore oil and natural gas leases and regulations governing oil, gas and renewable energy leasing in waters of the Arctic and Atlantic.

Central Islip, NY - The attorney general of the United States, Jeff Sessions, on Friday came to this Long Island area besieged by the transnational gang known as MS-13, and in a 20-minute speech to local police commissioners and sheriffs vowed to eradicate the gang by, above all, cracking down on illegal immigration. He likened the gang, which has links to El Salvador, to the Colombian cartel and the mafia, and said that it smuggled gang members across the United States border and recruited young immigrants to its ranks. His message was a familiar one, and it bore the blessing of President Trump, who Mr. Sessions said was aware
The German government says it is “leaving no stone unturned” in a probe into how a soldier falsely registered as a Syrian refugee for an alleged terror plot. Franco A led a double life for more than a year, remaining in his post as a Bundeswehr lieutenant while receiving state benefits under a fabricated identity as a supposed asylum seeker. Joachim Herrmann, the Bavarian interior minister, said the astonishing case provided “grim proof” that migrants had been registered in Germany “without proper examination of their identity”.

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.

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.

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.

Muslim reformer Zuhdi Jasser has recently attacked leaders of the anti-Jihad movement in America.

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.

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
