Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Bill O’Reilly is Reportedly Out at Fox News

Various reports say that Fox News has decided to break ties with one of its most famous anchors and the linchpin to their evening lineup, Bill O’Reilly.

In a report by New York Magazine, sources familiar with the situation say the only decision left is that of logistics: how and when O’Reilly will depart.

The Murdochs have decided Bill O’Reilly’s 21-year run at Fox News will come to an end. According to sources briefed on the discussions, network executives are preparing to announce O’Reilly’s departure before he returns from an Italian vacation on April 24. Now the big questions are how the exit will look and who will replace him.

Wednesday morning, according to sources, executives are holding emergency meetings to discuss how they can sever the relationship with the country’s highest-rated cable-news host without causing collateral damage to the network.

This bolsters the report in Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal that the decision had already been made.

This would be the capstone to an unfortunate era of scandal and shakeup at Fox News. Over the course of the past year, the network has been assaulted by sexual harassment charges the led to the downfall of its CEO Roger Ailes and the departure of talents like Greta Van Susteren and Megyn Kelly.

In recent weeks, O’Reilly seems to have added fuel to the sexual harassment fire at Fox as well.

This bolsters the report in Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal that the decision had already been made.

Early in April, The New York Times reported that O’Reilly had paid $13 million in settlements of sexual harassment charges claimed by female coworkers and guests of his show.

The revelation caused an advertiser boycott, which included many name brand advertisers and was followed by protests outside of the News Corp. headquarters in New York.

In the wake of another sexual harassment accusation to surface against O’Reilly, Matt Drudge tolled the bell for the Fox News mainstay in a rather ominous tweet Tuesday:

The Murdoch family, who owns Fox News, has faced its own turmoil in the decision. According to NYMag, the fight to save O’Reilly erupted into an intergenerational battle, pitting father Rupert against his two sons, Lachlan and James, who advocated for ending O’Reilly’s more than two-decade relationship with the company.

The move would be the end of an era for cable news, which has seen “The O’Reilly Factor” as one of the network’s highest-rated programs.

In the event of this shakeup, the future of the Fox News lineup would be somewhat uncertain. According to NYMag, Eric Bolling, Dana Perino, and Tucker Carlson are being considered as heirs to the coveted time slot.
