You Can’t Fire Bill O’Reilly
American Thinker, by Colin Flaherty

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 4/21/2017 2:03:04 PM

Fox cannot fire Bill O’Reilly because it is not their platform. That belongs to me. And you. And O’Reilly. It certainly does not belong to a couple of trust fund kids and their trophy wives playing dress-up with Daddy’s toys. Nor does it belong to clueless analysts who say no one will notice when O’Reilly does not show up for work this week. "Fox has built a powerful platform that is the go-to place for people with a certain worldview and so to some degree it doesn’t matter who is on,” said Brian Wieser, a senior analyst of advertising, media and internet

"Fox has built a powerful platform that is the go-to place for people with a certain worldview and so to some degree it doesn’t matter who is on...” Considering the lineup of Rivera, Williams, Harf, and Bechel; it is no longer my go-to place.

FTA: Tucker Carlson is a great guy. People like him well enough. But he’s no O’Reilly. I might not watch O’Reilly every night, but when I want something with a bit of a news edge — and yes, something with No Spin — O’Reilly is what I want.

He is so right. Tucker is more of a conservative and a sharp debater, but he is no O´Reilly and not so compelling to watch. Also, I like Dana but she is no Megyn.

Fox has lost its two stars JUST as I re-connect with cable. Bill and Megyn could argue but somehow not generate the palpable tension that turns me off to both Tucker and Hannity sometimes.

That said, there was no choice but to oust BOR. But it´s a shame.

I didn´t watch BOR as he wasn´t my favorite but The Lachlan liberals made a huge mistake. Fox is fading quickly Igor me. Way too many leftovers from the Obama administration and the regular losers, Geraldo, Beckle,Juan Williams, Shep Smith, Dana Perino (who can´t decide whether or not she´s a conservative or a liberal) and lately Abby Huntsman on weekends who gets more obnoxious every time she´s on and finally, Ezekiel Emmanuel the creator of Obamacare. Why waste my time with Fox?

I don´t disagree with the posters but where else does one go for TV news? The MSN are absolute propaganda mills. Does one spend time separating wheat from chaff? You bet! But that is part of being a thinking adult. That being said, if the twerps keep screwing around with a successful format, I may go solely to the internet news sources.

They did fire BOR. He is 67, has hundreds of millions, plenty of fans, and will do just fine. He has been doing this job for 20 years, so a change may be a positive in his life. With his money and following, there are plenty of platforms, and new ones. I hope he starts a new one. I have fired the msm, and Mr. O´Reilly might like to know, I fired Fox 10 years ago.

Seems O´Reilly got caught in his own SPIN Cycle at the Laundromat!

I always hated it when he called his show the ´No Spin Zone´ then sat down with Leftists and let them spout their BS talking points and he would just let them get away with it...barring some inane argument he would toss at them that just made their point stronger.

Don´t let the door hit you in the arse on your way out!

So, that just might be the problem. FNC, according to Forbes, is worth about 12 billion, and they have annual sales of about 14.5 billion. So, what is the vale of FNC to some panty waste kids worth 45 billion when daddy dies? It is the "New York Times Syndrome". The whole network is just a play things to sometimes take out and go speeding up and down the street with. So what if it gets a few dents and scrapes? Then, when they get tired of it, they will toss it aside and go get something else to amuse themselves with. Never mind how much they degrade the neighborhood peace and happiness. It´s not a bother to them at all.

I think we´ve all had that "Neighbor" from time to time.

There seems to be a lot of folks of that ilk going without jobs. I hope that it won’t take too long for something like the Fox of old will spring up. I don’t need to have something that “follows a conservative line”, but I want something that take what conservatives say seriously.

The left-wing media is engaged in attempted character assassination against Sean Hannity as part of their effort to try and destroy the Fox News Channel. Let me speak unequivocally to this point: I stand with Sean Hannity 100%, and these terrible, awful accusations are completely malicious, reprehensible smears by the left-wing media to try and bring down a good and decent man. I have known Sean for 18 years and every situation, whether working with him or watching him with others, I have found him a decent, kind, honest and professional person when dealing with everyone.

The "weekend cops" beat is not the most glorious job in journalism, but it is the easiest. All you have to do is check into the newsroom, grab a portable scanner, go to breakfast, visit the cop shop, ask a few questions, check the police blotter, eat lunch, scribble a few paragraphs about a car accident, then meet your fellow scribes for an after-work libation. (snip)all the weekend cop reporters in the San Francisco Bay area did not hear any police scanner traffic Saturday night at 9:30, when 60 black people rampaged through a BART train, robbing, beating, threatening, and

Racist Obama Caused Dems´ Downfall,

The press is starting to pile on Hillary Clinton for losing to President Trump, but the real cause of the Democrats´ defeat is never discussed. It is Obama himself. According to Gallup, averaging his two terms, Obama was the most unpopular President since President Truman, save only for Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford. Even Nixon was more popular. That poll will never be reported in the liberal press. But Democrats can’t ignore this astounding precinct map, that shows how tiny the blue islands have become in a sea of red voters. Obama thinks Democrats should continue to write off those red voters.

A Stunning School Sex Scandal
the Media Refuse to Notice

On April 15, Jackson County, Missouri, prosecutors charged James R. Green Jr., 52, with six counts of second-degree statutory sodomy. Green was a teacher and coach at a middle school in the suburban North Kansas City School District. Green’s victim was a sixteen-year-old boy. It appears likely that Green was abusing other boys over a period of at least twelve years in at least two different school districts, and Green’s crime is not the half of it. I learned about this crime for one reason. In January, I became editor of a new, nonprofit, online publication -- Sentinelksmo.org -- designed to

The Russians are off the hook. The chattering geniuses have discovered a new villain to blame for the shattering demise of their heroine, Hillary. White guys did it. The same reporters who cheered Hillary’s every misstep and doubted every Trump triumph are now trying to convince us that Hillary would be wearing the presidential pants suits today if only her staffers had not forgotten about white voters. That is what we learned from Shattered, the latest 2016 campaign obituary that crashed into bookstores this week. The pundits were so busy misreporting the election, they did not listen to what was actually happening in the

The University of California, Berkeley, where the modern New Left student movement began with the Free Speech Movement of 1964, has come full circle, and has surrendered to the anti-free speech fascists of the left.

Chelsea Clinton’s desperation

It must be tough being Chelsea Clinton, despite the ten-million-dollar apartment and the series of high paying jobs for which she had no qualifications, in which her tenure was brief. There are hordes of media sycophants desperate for a Clinton dynasty, and the Clinton political machine, bereft of its planned-for president, desperately needs a front-woman. So the pressure to be glamorous, thought-provoking, charismatic and above all, newsworthy is high, while the raw material available to Chelsea to meet these demands is less than impressive. Like the rapidly aging Madonna or the still-rising star Lady Gaga, Chelsea will grab at anything

Call it the tale of two National Security Advisers, Michael Flynn and Susan Rice.

Crime Is the New Black Entitlement

Crime is the new black entitlement. As long as black people are permanent victims of relentless white racism, cops should not chase them, juries should not convict them, judges should not sentence them, schools should not punish them, and white victims should not complain about the black crime and violence so wildly out of proportion. This is what a growing number of lawmakers, professors and, of course, reporters are prescribing as a way to “improve the way our system serves justice.” The latest came on NPR a few days ago when Georgetown Law professor and former federal prosecutor Paul Butler broke it down

As we approach Easter, a number of people -- Christian Ministers and priests included -- have encouraged me to share the backstory of how the content for The Forty Days – A Vision of Christ’s Lost Weeks, came to me. They have done so understanding the risk of doubt, ridicule, or worse I might face in the telling of the story. They believe, that in a nation and world spiraling deeper into chaos and uncertainty, and as more and more people turn their back on their faith, that a story such as this might speak to them on a deeper level.

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,

Former president Obama will speak to a health care conference sponsored by Cantor Fitzgerald in September, Gasparino reports.

Dirty denim is the new black, selling for hundreds of dollars at pricy retailers like Nordstrom. Nordstrom is offering "heavily distressed," muddy jeans for $425 on its web site. Nordstrom says that the jeans "embody rugged, Americana workwear that´s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you´re not afraid to get down and dirty." The mud has a shiny sheen to it, as if the jeans were dragged down a filthy hill and left in a wet ditch.

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said
