Multiple Reports Indicate Bill O’Reilly Is Done At Fox News

Bill O'Reilly

Fox News will sever ties with Bill O’Reilly in light of numerous sexual harassment charges. The Washington Examiner, CNN, and the Wall Street Journal (among others) are reporting that the announcement will be made soon:

“Fox News is preparing to cut ties with star anchor Bill O’Reilly, according to people close to the situation, after revelations that he and Fox parent 21st Century Fox settled multiple sexual harassment complaints led to an exodus of advertisers from his show and mounting pressure on the network.

“A final resolution on the fate of Mr. O’Reilly, host of the “The O’Reilly Factor,” could come as early as the next several days, the people said.

“21st Century Fox, which will hold a board meeting Thursday, hasn’t finalized an exit agreement with Mr. O’Reilly, the people close to the situation said.”

The scandal began on April 1 when a New York Times Article revealed O’Reilly has paid $13 million in five settlements for sexual harassment. Advertisers have been leaving the show in droves and O’Reilly has been on ‘vacation’ since April 11. O’Reilly has defended himself and calls the attacks “character assassination:”

“On Tuesday, an attorney for Mr. O’Reilly said the host has ‘been subjected to a brutal campaign of character assassination that is unprecedented in post-McCarthyist America’ and added that he has ‘evidence that the smear campaign is being orchestrated by far-left organizations bent on destroying O’Reilly and Fox News for political and financial reasons.’

The O’Reilly factor has ruled cable news for years. He draws nearly 4 million viewers every night and makes $20 million a year. At 67 years old, he hasn’t shown signs of slowing down. He recently renewed his contract with Fox News.

The final announcement was made today in a memo distributed to colleagues at Fox News:

    He didn’t rape any of those women, did he? For any woman to sit there and let a man say
    unsavory things without a comment, is like allowing it to keep happening. If he didn’t touch these women it’s a no-nothing……..But, with good lawyers, they can sue for comments………funny, on TV * Radio I hear worse all the time….Speak up if you want to stop it.

    “According to people close to the situation…” Who are those people? Soros funded liars flooding the media market with this diatribe? First they were saying he was gay! Now they’re saying this. It’s all bull!

  • Dennis McMurtrey

    Tomi Lahren would be a great replacement!

    I believe that the Democrats and their fake news organizations arebehind this. The man has not been given any time to defend himself. These are allegations.
    Fox did not settle, their insurance carrier settled. When we had a business, we got sued for something we were not guilty of….we WANTED our day in court to prove our innocence, but the insurance company settled out of court because it was cheaper than a trial. This happens every day to lots of innocent people….accusations may not be truthful accounts. Just because he is accused, does not make him guilty. If I were O’Reilly, I definitely would go after this woman for defamation of character and sue her for millions….take a lesson from Melania Trump and the Daily Mall …. she settled for over a Million. If it is a lie, I would definitely work to expose the lie. The Democrats and lamestream media want to destroy Fox because it is still the only halfway non-biased news on the TV. If Fox goes, so goes the truth.

      notice since the Boys, have begun running the show, the libs like sheppard are getting bigger and the conservatives are getting smaller?

      • wandamurline

        Yes, not to mention that the homosexuals are increasing in the networks…

  • MERIDUS

    The only shows I will watch now are Watters,Tucker and Hanity,the rest suck

  • AbleAmerican1

    Since Bill’s “History” @ Fox..Maybe He & Glenn Beck should join up as “Fox News Alumni”..If that happens I’d really consider becoming a paid member participant in their “Conservative” presentations.
    Beck’s recent Radio program talked about Bill’s termination as a possible strong left wing movement to Totally Break Fox News.. & that with Bill’s demise look for others, ie. Hannity, Carlson. etal to be NEXT on the “ATTACK” list. Rupert’s two (2) sons apparently don’t care for Bill at all..even tho’ he’s been their TOP Revenue producer for years & apparently have a majority ‘vote’ in making such decisions.

    The far left has done it again. Silenced a voice for the people. I am very disappointed in Fox News and will most likely stop watching all but Hannity for now. I just subscribed to Rush Limbaugh’s radio program because I am afraid that those of us on the right will have no other place to go to get the truth. Sad day for America….

      we need a new network maybe msnbc we could send their ratings soaring and their ad money.

  • ch

    My posts keeps getting censored with the information that Soros was behind the accusations of woman against Bill O’Reilly and that the leftist son James Murdoch’s wife Claudia hates Trump and O’Reilly. Search for the information and pass it on.
