Fox News fans outraged over ouster of Bill O’Reilly

Viewers of Fox News are taking to social media to express outrage over the announced ouster of their most popular host.

In a surprising move from the network it was revealed today that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning as host of the ratings machine that has been The O’Reilly Factor. The statement read, “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 news, which comes after the New York Times revealed that O’Reilly and Fox had reached settlements totaling $13 million with five women who had accused O’Reilly of sexual harassment or verbal abuse, is not being received well by the host’s legions of fans.

Supporters of O’Reilly are chiming in on any stories shared by the fair and balanced network to express their frustration with the decision:

Over 60 advertisers removed their spots from the show in the wake of the settlements report from the the Times.

While the host has been silent so far, one of his attorneys indicated that a statement is forthcoming.

UPDATE: O’Reilly released the following statement:

“Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history… It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today. I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers. I wish only the best for Fox News Channel.”

    on a woman’s answering machine!!!! but, yeah, the allegations are
    totally “unfounded”. I hope Bill chokes on a d-ck and dies.

      “Dies”. That’s taking it a bit far. I can dislike or hate someone but I don’t wish death on them.

        okay, thanks for sharing

    I’m glad that people are starting to take stuff like this seriously. For far too long people have gotten away with this because of the celebrity status. It still bothers the sh*t out of me that somebody like Lena Dunham is on television and everyody defends her. She is just as gross.

      And, Bill Maher and Chelsea Handler and Rachel Maddow and Don Lemon and Chris Matthews and Wolf and his sidekick -_____. the list goes on and on. If you are the Commie side you basically get away with murder. Rules of professional journalism and behavior do not apply to them. Double standard is startling apparent.

      • DeeDeDee

        Did all of those people actually sexually assault somebody and get away with it… or are you just naming them because you clearly don’t agree with their politics?

        • disqus_LQmjCZP25F

          My point in mentioning those names is to say that each one of them has knowingly delivers fake news – a crime when you consider that they are in the news delivery business and have a responsibility to their viewers. Crimes come in many varieties, so it seems, that O”Reilly has paid a big price for what he did, allegedly. Remember, also, that if this same standard was applied to Bill Clinton when he was PRESIDENT, would have given him the death penalty as punishment. O’Reilly’s accusers waited so long to complain and it reeks of greed in trying to now cash in on the big bucks they can extort from him. Bottom line, his punishment was not commensurate with his “crime.”

          • DeeDeDee

            There is actual physical proof that this guy has sexually assaulted/harassed women. This isn’t a new thing, there just happened to be enough proof to get him to settle this time, otherwise the judge would have granted a much heftier settlement.

            And for the love of Christ, stay on subject. There was no point in bringing up other people other than the fact that they were liberal and you don’t like them. If this would have been about fake news and him getting fired for twisting the truth, then fine. But it’s hard to take anybody seriously when their arguments aren’t even on topic.

            • disqus_LQmjCZP25F

              I hear you on this as to straying off of topic – it’s just that, IMO, there is an equivalency here for the reasons so stated. Also, I’m happy that you capitalized “Christ” as it does lessen the taking of the Lord’s name in vain. Not that I am guiltless here, to be honest. So, we can agree to our respective opinions. I do, however, appreciate your taking the time to critique my blog.
