Its sad day for people that like to watch a program that discusses issues.

 

First The McLaughlin Group now the O'Reilly program. 

 

It also shows that it pays to make llegations 


It show that when someone does the disgusting and illegal immoral stuff that O'Reilly has done, it will catch up with you and you may just get what you deserve. It's a sad day that some would think that O'Reilly should keep his job whenever he should actually be jailed.

I am stunned by people would discount this behavior.   Would you want it to happen to the women you care about?  Would you want it to happen to you?   Someone in a higher position of power sexually harassing you?  Why this would be acceptable at any level to any one is mind boggling.

myexper--Now that is the truth. Bill O'Reilly, and only Bill O'Reilly is responsible for his actions.  There is no way around that.  How sad that people would make excuses for such horrible behavior.  But then again, look who said that O'Reilly did nothing wrong. m

Crotch grabber TRUMP.

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

Bill O’Reilly has been forced out of his position as a prime-time host on Fox News, the company said on Wednesday, after the disclosure of settlements involving sexual harassment allegations against him. His abrupt and embarrassing ouster ends his two-decade reign as one of the most popular and influential commentators in television.

“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,” 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, said in a statement.

Mr. O’Reilly is departing two and a half weeks after an investigation by The New York Times revealed how Fox News and 21st Century Fox had repeatedly stood by him even as sexual harassment allegations against him mounted. The Times found that the company and Mr. O’Reilly had reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him. The agreements totaled about $13 million.

No it shows that Fox was tired of spending millions to cover up sexual harassment behavior .... and was not going to loose revenue from advertisers who refused to be associated with O'Reilly.
