Let them Fall!! Bill O'Riley Gone for Channa!

Bill O'Reilly is done at Fox News, its parent company 21st Century Fox said Wednesday.

"After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O'Reilly have agreed that Bill O'Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel," the company said in a statement.

 

O'Reilly was notified Wednesday that his run at Fox News would be coming to an end, according to a source with knowledge of the proceedings.

O'Reilly's departure was precipitated by a New York Times report earlier this month that O'Reilly, Fox and 21st Century Fox had reached settlements totaling $13 million with five women who had accused O'Reilly of sexual harassment or verbal abuse. In the wake of the Times' report, at least 60 advertisers told Fox to remove their commercials from "The O'Reilly Factor."

Still, this is a turn of events that was unthinkable even three weeks ago, and it is unknown how O'Reilly will respond to Fox's decision. His representatives have not yet commented, but his lawyer indicated that a statement would be forthcoming.

In a letter to employees obtained by CNN, 21st Century Fox patriarch Rupert Murdoch said the decision "follows an extensive review done in collaboration with outside counsel."

"By ratings standards, Bill O'Reilly is one of the most accomplished TV personalities in the history of cable news," the three wrote. "In fact, his success by any measure is indisputable. Fox News has demonstrated again and again the strength of its talent bench. We have full confidence that the network will continue to be a powerhouse in cable news.

"Lastly, and most importantly, we want to underscore our consistent commitment to fostering a work environment built on the values of trust and respect."

The letter concluded with an apparent nod to morale problems within Fox News recently.

"I understand how difficult this has been for many of you," it said. "Thank you for your hard work, patience, and for the great job you all do delivering news and opinion to millions of Americans whose trust you earn every day. I look forward to even more success in the coming years."

Almost immediately after the announcement of O'Reilly's departure, Fox released its new, O'Reilly-less lineup, which will start Monday, the day O'Reilly had been scheduled to return from vacation.

Tucker Carlson will be moving from 9 p.m. to take over O'Reilly's 8 p.m. slot, while "The Five" will move to 9 p.m. with new co-host Jesse Watters. Eric Bolling, who had been a co-host of "The Five," is taking the 5 p.m. hour by himself, though his new show will not debut until May 1.

Liberal groups which had long opposed O'Reilly, and had been pushing advertisers to join the boycott, celebrated the news Wednesday.

"Advertisers fled because they immediately recognized what Fox News has ignored for over a decade: that serial sexual harassment is not only wrong, but bad for business. Without advertisers, Bill O'Reilly's show was no longer commercially viable. Fox News had no choice but to fire O'Reilly. Accountability came from the outside, not from within," Media Matters for America president Angelo Carusone said in a statement.

At the end of the day. It is capitalism.  All it is about is how much products you sell. That amount of advertisers pulling their products means that he had to go. If OReilly had the face of Rajesh khanna instead of an ugly face like Keffer then would those women have said sexual harassment.

I agree that it is about capitalism because Fox have been paying off sexual harassment lawsuits against O'Reilly since the '90s but this time, they are faced with the loss some 70 something advertisers the likes of Mercedes Benz and BMW to name a couple.

Fox does have attractive women but man it is difficult listening to them. I am at the point where I mute the tv and just look at their legs.

Whenever nothing seems to interest me, I turn to FOX. The wife always ask me why I watch FOX? I say, I am just channel surfing.

Mine doesn't mind. She herself points out the bitches at the basketball games to me. Back in the days when the Heat was a winning team, bitches went to the arena specifically to be seen.

Leonora gyal, me always tell me wife: "Not because a man is on a diet, he cannot look at the menu". What makes you think we are "dirty" spouses? How do you define "dirty spouses"? There is nothing wrong with looking; just don't touch.

Matthew 5:28:  But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.  

Don't worry with Matthew. Billy O did all this and went and met the pope. What makes you think every time a man looks at a woman, he is committing adultery? I am sure you heard "a thing of beauty is a joy forever". I always admire beautiful women.

No harm done. Sometimes when I am driving, I look cross-eyed, especially in the summer.
