Thread: Bill O'Reilly out at Fox News

  1. #1

    Default Bill O'Reilly out at Fox News

    http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/19/medi...ews/index.html

    "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.""



    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL. So long, shill!

    Long overdue. I would have put O'Reilly up there with Keith Olbermann as the two most-arrogant TV media personas deserving of being canned.

    I wish I was a major advertiser though. It'd be nice to call up an MSM outlet from time to time and tell them to cut the bull$#@! or else. The most I can manage is to cut cable TV and as far as I can tell, they haven't even flinched, lol

    I'm pretty happy Tucker Carlson is taking his spot, and I'm not sad to see Bill O go.. but it's too bad that some bull$#@! fraudulent claims of sexual harassment are what did him in.

    Good. I'm so tired of him. I'm tired of Fox in general. Nothing new, just warmed over mainstream garbage and non-news.

    I am a libertarian. I am advocating everyone enjoy maximum freedom on both personal and economic issues as long as they do not bring violence unto others.

    Taken down by Progressive organizations with what looks to be really out there false accusations. Whether you love or hate him this is very bad for the Conservatives and white males in general.

    O'Reilly is not even close to being conservative. And I'm struggling to see how my situation as a white male has worsened. Do the Bill Cosby allegations make bad days for African-American males?

    His real political positions do not matter. The MSM has sold him and FOXNews to the people as the patriarchal voice of Conservatism and by large the people seem to agree with that. They gave him by far the highest rated news show for the last 20+ years and it made unprecedented amount of money for FOXNews/News corp.

    Yet for the first time a few radical Progressive organizations that have some pretty far out feminist views were able to take even O'Reilly down with bogus accusations. A man who appeared to be untouchable.

    By caving in they just gave those organizations and their message a tremendous amount of power. They will use it to silence anyone on the right they disagree with and it could significantly move the overton window in the direction of these people that have some really far out views.

    This could potentially indirectly effect liberty candidates and males in the work place by women looking for a pay off.

    What's Fox News?
    “…I believe that at this point in history, the greatest danger to our freedom and way of life comes from the reasonable fear of omniscient State powers kept in check by nothing more than policy documents.”

    It doesn't matter, he is viewed as conservative and so the leftists took him out using baseless lies.

    Like I said, I won't miss him even for a single second, this is a great move - Fox should have done it on their own. But the fact that he was taken out using baseless accusations and lies is bad for everybody, not just white men.

    When women lie about rape too often, then rape accusations become less believable. That is bad for WOMEN.

    Do you think the Cosby allegations were false?

    O'Reilly is an idiot if he didn't see this coming. It is 2017, for crying out loud. If he didn't understand about harrassment in the workplace by now, he is too stupid to be in the media.

    Exactly. They should have just not renewed his contract or settled it behind the scenes, then let him say his goodbye into retirement. There was no need to do this the way they handled it. It even looks as if they knew these bogus allegations were going to come out when they renewed his contract with the new clause in it a few weeks ago.

    I have no idea. But neither the allegations nor any acquittal, conviction, or mistrial would cause me to view the population of black men any differently. And I appreciate your comment that false accusations affect anyone badly, not just persons of a certain race. If I may add, I don't believe that bouncing a phony right cover media "conservative" hurts the conservative movement. It just cleans it up a bit.
