What do you think about Fox News dropping Bill O'Rielly?

 

Bill O’Reilly’s reign as the top-rated host in cable news came to an abrupt and embarrassing end on Wednesday as Fox News forced him out after the disclosure of a series of sexual harassment allegations against him and an internal investigation that turned up even more.https://www.nytimes....tions.html?_r=0

If he plays his cards right this could be a big boon to his career.  He can now come across as the outsider that got screwed by Faux News and all those 'liberal' advertisers and probably get a new show on Glenn Beck's channel The Blaze. I seriously doubt we're rid of him yet.

I don't know the details about this, but it doesn't seem right to fire someone simply because there are allegations against someone.  You can make allegations against anyone.

 

Not saying that you have to have court conviction, but there has to be some substance

 

I'm not going to bother to research this

Advertisers were pulling out because of the allegations. I think the loss of revenue is probably the real reason he was fired.

I think it’s disgusting that Bill O’Reilly will be receiving a $25 Million dollar payout, equivalent to one year’s salary.

What kind of message does it send that you can sexually harass dozens of women, cover it up,  and still receive compensation

You need arch support ! Why to make my arches weak so that way I really do ?

Will wearing a neck brace all day make my neck stronger too ?

Maybe keeping my arm in a sling will strengthen my biceps.

Apr 1, 2017 - About $13 million has been paid out over the years to address complaints ... Bill O'Reilly, Fox News's top-rated host, has faced a series of sexual ... Mr. Ailes, who has denied the allegations against him, received $40 million as part of ... with at least six women who accused Mr. Ailes of sexual harassment

 

 

Meanwhile people get crippled in car accidents  loose arms and legs stuff like that and get less money.  World is crazy.

My first thought was...."What took so long...and GOOD!"

 

I never watched him anyway. I did not agree with anything he ever said....so I won't miss him....and like hotwater said, that amount of money is a disgusting pay off.
