FOX News will reportedly sever its relationship with Bill O'Reilly.

Sources told Gabriel Sherman of the Daily Intelligencer that the Murdoch-run cable news network is preparing to announce O'Reilly's departure from FOX News after 21 years. The biggest question for executives now is how the announcement will be made and whether or not O'Reilly will get the chance to return to air to announce the news himself.

Seldom watched his show and I don't care.  O'Reilly will continue to write books, and I have read a few of them.
 

Sad part is, Bill O'Reilly isn't being fired because he harassed women, it's because we weren't supposed to find out about it.

O'Reilly's lawyeres issued a couple of blustery statements yesterday blaming his problems on "far-left activists"out to get him, who were being paid for their efforts.
It appears that he isn't going to go quietly.

MSNBC just announced a little while ago that BillO will NOT be returning to Fox News. He's reportedly still 'on vacation' in Italy. Maybe he should seek 'political asylum' there...

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.

-- CNNMoney's Tom Kludt contributed reporting.

Donald Trump says that Bill O'Reilly is "a good man", and that his only mistake was settling all of the sexual harassment cases instead of fighting them.

Aside from O'Reilly's disgusting personal behavior, he apparently figured in Megyn Kelly's decision to turn down Fox's big offer, and to take a smaller salary at NBC.

Side note - O'Reilly lost custody of his kids last year after his daughter testified that she witnessed her father drag her mother down the stairs by the hair.  Because he's a good man.  Just ask Trump.

Don't forget that good Christian man,  we all know as Bill O'Reilly wrote a  porno novel in 1998. 
 Including deep literary phrases such as,, "Say baby, put down that pipe and get my pipe up," 
and  "Cup your hands under your breasts and hold them for ten seconds,"  and   "Cunnilingus involves the lips and tongue."

,,,, Such a "good man"

as career cameraman for bill o'really let me remind everyone that i was there every perilous step of the way, from the blood and guts of lavish hotels in argentina, to the numerous sexual harrasment complaints levied against us throughout our glorious careers. armed at times only with loofah sponges and a battery of top corporate attorneys we fought the good fight to bring you the unvarnished truth as the super rich paid us so handsomely to see it. it is with a heavy heart that i bear the news that o'really has finally been laid low, felled not by some treacherous and imagined foreign foe, but by some domestic feminazi like gloria allred or gloria steinam for that matter

old fox noise soldiers never die...

they just get replaced
