Bill O'Reilly Leaves Fox News, Tucker Carlson Takes His Slot

22 April 2017, 01:00 | Anna Nguyen

"Fox News' problem with sexual harassment and assault is way bigger than just Bill O'Reilly", said Ultraviolet co-founder Shaunna Thomas.

O'Reilly's departure puts an end to cable's highest rated program and a $20 million-a-year job for the host. 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.

Off-camera unseen forces raged against him, culminating in Fox News Channel's admission today that O'Reilly is getting the boot.

The New York Times reported April 1 that five women had been paid a total of $13 million to keep quiet about unpleasant encounters with O'Reilly, who has denied any wrongdoing.

Fox News announced Wednesday in a statement that the now-former "O'Reilly Factor" host would not be returning from vacation in the wake of numerous sexual harassment allegations coming to light.

The announcement comes at hard time for Fox News, whose former chairman Roger Ailes resigned past year after a sexual harassment lawsuit by former anchor Gretchen Carlson.

The move came after reports of sexual harassment, which began earlier this month with a New York Times story.

He warned the president to be very careful not to explicitly or even implicitly draw a red line when it comes to North Korea. The release of a Security Council press statement requires the consent of all 15 member countries.


In the internal memo, the Murdochs praised O'Reilly, saying, "By ratings standards, Bill O'Reilly is one of the most accomplished TV personalities in the history of cable news". It also said the decision "follows an extensive review done in collaboration with outside counsel".

President Donald Trump, an avid Fox News watcher, had leapt to O'Reilly's defense following the New York Times report, calling him "a good person".

As far as O'Reilly's future beyond Fox News, Earnheardt said he expects his voice will still be heard, "on the radio, probably through some syndication, and through his books". So he went to Bill, came back, and said, 'No, he's not going to apologize.' So I went to my boss. If O'Reilly's viewership craters, it could hurt audiences in the 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. slots, sapping revenue from O'Reilly's former slot and those around it.

The National Organization for Women said Fox News should be investigated by authorities.

O'Reilly's departure is the second big blow for conservatives' favorite news network in nine months. Concern over whether Fox broke the law by failing to disclose its settlements to investors is more likely to impact approval than whether the company is mired in sexual misconduct allegations, said Claire Enders of Enders Analysis, who has studied the Murdoch empire for years.

She said she was prepared to deal with the backlash from speaking out against O'Reilly order to make work "less toxic for our children".

O'Reilly and co-author Martin Dugard are due to release another book in the "Killing" series in September, and a spokeswoman for publisher Henry Holt and Co. said that plans had not changed.
