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 .
Don’t for one minute think this past week of Charlottesville-tied mayhem has been over a statue of Robert E. Lee. It’s not. It’s about power, control and the political course our nation will take as we head into the future. Don’t see the connection? Walk with me. The clashes in Charlottesville, disgusting as they were — fatal as they proved — were quickly seized upon by a committed far-left that wants nothing more than to A) remove this president from office and B) change the constitutional nature of America’s society for one that’s ruled by whim and mob voice, rather than law and order. Charlottesville was the perfect confluence of hot
Baghdad - An Iraqi ship sank on Saturday after a collision with another vessel in Iraq´s territorial waters, killing at least four sailors, Iraqi state television reported. Diving support vessel al-Misbar had 21 sailors on board, of which 10 were rescued, the Baghdad-based channel said, citing a statement from the transportation ministry. The search for survivors was continuing in late hours of Saturday, it said, giving no details about the other ship involved in the collision, a bulk carrier registered in Saint Vincent, the Royal Arsenal. Al-Misbar is owned by the Iraq´s state-run ports authority.
President Trump thanked Steve Bannon Saturday, a day after he ousted the White House chief strategist amid internal feuding in the West Wing. “I want to thank Steve Bannon for his service,” the president tweeted. “He came to the campaign during my run against Crooked Hillary Clinton — it was great! Thanks S” Mr. Bannon returned Friday to Breitbart News, the conservative news organization that he led prior to joining the Trump campaign last year. He was pushed out by White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, who was brought on board by the president in late July to restore order to the West Wing. Mr. Bannon told the
Jason Kessler, the alt-right activist and organizer of last weekend’s deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, tweeted that the woman who died protesting his event “was a fat, disgusting Communist” and called her death “payback time” — then walked back the remark and blamed it on drugs and alcohol. “Heather Heyer was a fat, disgusting Communist. Communists have killed 94 million,” he tweeted Friday. “Looks like it was payback time.” The tweet included a link to a now-infamous article published on The Daily Stormer white supremacist website last weekend hours after Heyer, 33, died while protesting
A Knifeman wearing a fake suicide belt has been shot dead by police after stabbing seven people in Russia – with Isis claiming responsibility for the attack. The man, named locally as 23-year-old Bobichel Abdurakhmanov, was gunned down by cops after going on a horrific stabbing spree in Surgut on Saturday. Footage showing the suspect trying to flee the scene has also been caught on CCTV, with the man appearing to throw something away before being shot. Russia´s Investigations Committee have said they launched a probe into the horror that unfolded about 11.20am local time - with ISIS since having claimed that
Kissimmee, FL - Two Kissimmee police officers were shot Friday night, one of them fatally, while they were responding to a suspicious person call in an area known for drug activity, according to Kissimmee Police Chief Jeff O’Dell. Sgt. Sam Howard and Officer Matthew Baxter responded to Palmway and Cypress streets in Kissimmee at 9:27 p.m. and came into contact with four people, police said. At 9:32 p.m., both men were shot, O´Dell said. “It looked like they were surprised,” O´Dell said, adding that the officers did not return fire. One of the officers was shot in the head at close range, a source told News 6.

Most of President Donald Trump´s evangelical advisers have stood by him this week following much criticism over his response to violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, even as several CEOs left business advisory councils and members of his Committee on the Arts and Humanities have announced they are leaving the panel. In a first for his evangelical advisory council, New York City megachurch pastor A.R. Bernard announced Friday that he had stepped down from the unofficial board of evangelical advisers to Trump. Bernard sat at the president´s table on May 3, the night before the National Prayer Breakfast when Trump
(Video) - Isis has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack in Cambrils, Spain, in an official communique. It had already claimed the prior attack in Barcelona but put out an official statement later encompassing both atrocities, which police in Spain had been treating as linked. It came as Spanish authorities announced they believed the cell behind the twin attacks in Cambrils and La Rambla, Barcelona, had been "dismantled". Police had been investigating a cell of between eight and 12 people after a van smashed into pedestrians in the Catalan city on Thursday afternoon, killing 13 and injuring about 100.
Texas added 19,600 jobs in July, a middling number on its own, but it’s one that builds on just over a year straight of employment growth in the Lone Star State, data released Friday shows. Over the year, Texas added 293,400 jobs -- the most of any state -- followed by California, whose economy has grown by 276,400 jobs over the past year and Florida, which added 226,200. That all puts Texas’ annual employment growth at 2.4 percent. According to the Texas Workforce Commission, that’s twice the rate at this time a year ago.

Los Angeles - A Los Angeles judge on Friday rejected a request by the woman who was raped by director Roman Polanski 40 years ago to have the criminal case against him dismissed. Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon ruled that Polanski remained a fugitive from justice and that the court could not dismiss a case "merely because it would be in the victim´s best interest." The ruling follows the first appearance in June in the case by Samantha Geimer, who was 13 years old when Polanski sexually assaulted her in Los Angeles in 1977. The director, who admitted raping Geimer, spent 42 days in pre-trial custody. He then fled
An internal civil war is tearing at the fabric of Fox News. The events of the past week have brought the long-simmering conflict closer to the surface. The legitimacy and viability of President Trump are under constant assault in the mainstream media as never before – and that is saying something. Fox News Channel executives, staff, and on air talent are taking sides. The future direction of the right-of-center, fair and balanced Fox News approach to presenting the news may well be in serious doubt.

Oregonians so far are seeing the brunt of the traffic as revelers have started pouring into central Oregon, clogging roadways and draining gas supplies in rural towns, all in hopes of catching the full splendor of this once in a lifetime celestial event. The nightmare scenario for locals in the state started emerging Wednesday when traffic backed up for 12 miles on US Highway 26 as people began to set
The Republican Party´s collective response to Donald Trump´s handling of the Charlottesville race riots turned uglier on Friday. Mitt Romney, the failed 2012 GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts governor whom Trump has bashed relentlessly for more than two years, lashed out against him on Facebook for what he said was a hamfisted message during Tuesday´s press conference – and demanded a full-throated apology from the president. (Snip) Trump´s remoteness from the rest of the GOP has become so severe that former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, a longtime ally of the president´s, sounded a loud alarm Friday morning.
Durham — The new president of Duke University has ordered the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee after it was vandalized earlier this week. “I took this course of action to protect Duke Chapel, to ensure the vital safety of students and community members who worship there, and above all to express the deep and abiding values of our university,” President Vincent Price said in a statement released Saturday morning. “The removal also presents an opportunity for us to learn and heal,” Price said, adding that the statue will be preserved so students “can study Duke’s complex past
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement today declaring her support for the Congress to pass a resolution censuring President Donald Trump for “the repulsiveness” of his “words and actions.” “Every day, the president gives us further evidence of why such a censure is necessary,” said Pelosi. The censure resolution was introduced in the House of Representatives today by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D.-N.Y.), Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D.-N.J.) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D.-Wash.). The resolution immediately gathered 77 co-sponsors, all of whom are Democrats. “The President’s remarks following the violence in Charlottesville over the weekend are a moral outrage,”
A House Democrat introduced a resolution on Friday suggesting that President Trump undergo a physical and mental health exam to help determine whether he is fit for office. Rep. Zoe Lofgren’s (D-Calif.) resolution specifically calls on Vice President Pence and Trump’s Cabinet members to “quickly secure the services of medical and psychiatric professionals” to “assist in their deliberations” invoking the 25th Amendment, which outlines presidential removal procedures. It posits that such an examination by doctors would “determine whether the president suffers from mental disorder or other injury that impairs his abilities and prevents him from discharging his Constitutional duties.

I just did something fascinating. I just watched the President’s entire 14-minute impromptu news conference at Trump Tower on Monday that sparked all the latest barrage of anti-Trump screeds from the left media that will criticize him every day, no matter what he does, augmented by the “Never Trump” Republicans and neo-conservatives who will not rest until they can re-conquer the political party they lost because of three terms of two failed Bush presidencies, followed by the two failed Presidential candidacies of Sen. John McCain and of Gov. Mitt Romney. Not the reportage about the conference, but the entire 14 minutes
