I agree Catherine. Bill was so set up. It looks like the Murdoch sons are the ones that are responsible for it all. They more than likely paid some woman to make these charges. They want not only O'Reilly gone. Mark my words, Hannity will be next and then perhaps Tucker, who knows.
FOX will be competing soon with CNN to see who is more liberal and fake. I think these men should get together and build their own Network and continue the shows the are known for. We need an other conservative News Network.
@Sam you are a liar and a troll. It was 13 million and 5 women. Not 14. You have to be a liberal because you lie to try and make your point. You are disgusting and part of the problem. I dont believe these women. Like many have said. It's cheaper to settle than fight in court
Now you know why Pence has the attitude about being alone with women without his wife. Women you are being used to destroy this country. Liberals had a problem with this because they couldnt set Pence up like they did O'Reilly.
As mentioned above, Graham Ledger, One America News (OAN) is "The Man." When I discovered The Daily Ledger a couple of years ago, I realized there was no comparison in conservative news circles for honest, hard hitting, factual reporting and opinion. Graham Ledger far surpassed O'Reilly as far as journalistic objectivity is concerned but unfortunately, OAN lacked the overall resources to compete with the national exposure of Fox News. In my opinion, for pure news and honest conservative perspective, OAN is number one.
BAD MOVE, NO PROOF , WAS A SET UP, FOX FELL FOR IT, CHECK AND SEE WOW MANY HILLARY SUPPORTERS CALLED FOR THIS , THEY WANTED A PROVEN SEXUAL ABUSER, WIFE CHEATER, ABUSER OF MANY WOMAN , BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE, BY VOTING FOR HILLARY, NOW THIS IS STUPID!!!
When Herman Cain rose in the polls, all of a sudden there were accusations of him being a sexual predator. The same thing happened to Ben Carson. It looks like the lefties have devised a consistent strategy for getting rid of conservatives they don't like. Accuse them of being perverts. Apparently one woman was going to try the tactic on Sean Hannity. However, when he said he'd sue the crap out of her, her story suddenly softened.
The moment Gloria allreds daughter Lisa Bloom said she "had to take him down" says it all. These are manipulated charges made for tv. And the woman who broke her confidentiality agreement should be sued. Along with her lawyer. I don't doubt O'Reilly said some inappropriate things but that is not terminable.
Brad Williams, really? Then how come Slick Willy Clinton as POTUS, used the WH Oval Office for raping female interns, sex orgies, lied about them saying, "I never had sexual relations with that woman", even kept a box of cigars there to use when he couldn't. Good thing Monica Lewinsky kept her DNA stained dress proving Clinton did have sexual relations with her in the Oval Office. He lost nothing and remained the scuzz he was with his enabling wife doing all she could to destroy the women who had accused the creep. One of the reasons we made sure she didn't win was so he would not have access to female interns, especially if he had a box of cigars.
Bye Bye Fox News. The Murdock brothers get their wish. Bill held Fox News to a higher standard and I personally will be following Bill. He was Fox news and I persoanlly hope that your revenue stream becomes a dry and barren land!
Curious, if some was harassed/abused/assalted to the point it caused irreputable harm, wouldnt justice be served in court and not settling for millions of dollars from the perp. Money does not make a victim over come adversity, proving it happened in a court of law and then any restitution granted, that is when the healing begins. Settlement does not always prove guilt, just make someone rich. Disappointed in Fox News, loYal fan no more.
Nice try with the mother/children/spouse ploy. My daughter was stalked and harassed by a fellow employee. It went to court and was settled legally. She did NOT make millions from it. She did not wait years to report it. No she was not an opportunist.
Shame on Fox... shame on all his coworkers for not coming to his defense... cowards all of you... where is Juan... Jesse.. Charles...??? Bill is too smart to have been so careless.. and disrespectful.. FOX has proven to be JUST another Media Outlet .. nothing special ?
Too bad they waited until he was on vacation to break the news to him. I don't know if all that he was accused with is true but I knw that the Liberals will stop short of nothing to bring down a conservative. Just because he was accused does not mean that he is guilty. All he has to do is lower his armour for one minute. One statement or speculation and they pounce on it viciously like a dog on a bone. It is disheartning that Fox News does not stand by their employees over people that are known destructionists.
God bless Bill. I do not believe he is guilty of anything. Someone just wants him silenced. He is the reason I started watching Fox. No one will replace him. As soon as he gets his show up and running on another channel, I will tune in.
Thanks Anonymous. My research says 13 million paid to 5 women, all settled out of court. That's a drop in the bucket for Fox News to pay to make lawsuits go away. Nothing in those lawsuits was revealed. I'm sure your research shows different
Anonymous one, dont be bothered by @banstan. He can't figure out that fox wouldn't have fired their number one rated show for no reason. They already settled 13 mill dollars to quiet the other accusers. In his dictionary that's called being innocent. Hhhhh. What does guilty look like?
Does anyone remember "David Letterman"? He made a condition of employment to numerous women, that they have sex with him. He kept his job and upon retirement he was celebrated and received Kudos, from the forgiving liberals. Who knows the charges alleged against Bill O'Reilly, who knows who accused. Give us all a break, especially Bill O'Reilly. Double, Double Standard.
This is where the left are starting their attack on the conservative view. Remember Fox is the number one staion that the left hates and they figured that if they take over the messaging then can control the information to the people. The Murdock son that is taking over is very liberal and believes that fox needs to change.
If he is innocent of the charges he needs to sue the socks off of FOX. I wondered if his ratings were down, the show the last few times I've watched seemed kinda bland! I've heard so many lies recently I wonder if he got a raw deal. BTW I'm not a fan but he is entertaining at times. I just don't like the cut-throat nonsense that seems to be becoming common!
Blivett / Blather. Sounds like your specialty. One of the many victims refused a settlement to make that point. If he didnt do anything he would be able to sue Fox. So maybe we'll leave that opening for you or your daughter since you havent learned the importance of protecting victims. Im sure your lively made up story was something you saw on murder she wrote. Your obviously as big a hipocrit as you are a liar
Well the end is near...this is just what Bill has been espousing for years...the left will do whatever, say whatever in order to rip apart the Honest, truthful, meaningful news of FOX....the Murdocks are gonna realize they are foolsa nd have been had by the ginned up liberal haters...Bill will survive, you'll see him turn up...maybe the blaze or Brietbart...and for the better...Fox is in a schambles...imploding on itself trying to appease the alt left...screw them...once you start down the path of appeasement your days are numbered just ask France and England.
For all those suggesting that if Bill O'Rielly paid his accusers he must be guilty. Let me say as a business owner, with a fraction of the wealth of O'Rielly and none of the publicity, that I have had my attorneys council me on paying off employees and differnt claims without ever going to court because "it woud be much easier and a whole lot cheaper" for me or my insurance to just settle. Regardless of guilt or false claim. I have been sued by motorists, workmans comp claims, and disgruntled employees. Some I am certain were because of jealousy or just because they want to get even or are malice to me because they feel that because I have worked for over 35 years building my business I owe them more than the agreeable weekly paycheck I am sure of it. Most if not all were compensated and had little to no grounds to defend their accusation or lawsuit. Insurance companies look at exposure risks, throw a low ball number at an individual so it doesn't drag on forever in the court system, and they can put it behind them. Out of the few claims I have faced, it seems as long as something is offered and they get "SOMETHING".....it's all good. This greatly angers me and as a man of prinicpal would rather spend $100,000.00 to defend the principal of right from wrong on a $10,000.00 wronful claim. If I am wrong then I pay and wouldn't contest the claims anyway. My exact experssion to my insurance company and attorney, was that we are just educating society that if those with silly claims cry or whine a little they will get SOMETHING regardless of their position. Our society has turned into one of NO accountability of ones own acrtions, and allot on the other side of entitlement. Why do you think there are so many attorneys in your yellow pages? And what does that say about a scumbag attorney who chases ambulances just so he can become the biggest winner? Yes, there are loser attorneys! Those laws and systems, and insurances are there for a pupose and I soley believe that if a person is injured or has been wronged they deserve compensation. However, truths involving money are often lost on more occassions than the average Joe would care to admit. I don't know if Bill O Rielly is guilty of anything or not. But, his attempt to make settlement with an accuser may be a simple suggetion to him by his legal council, that has turned against him and into a TERRIBLE mistake. Ans last a final I can say Karma is as said...a bitch. Those that have received what I would clasify as an Un-Just settlement have had things happen to them wherein it has in case ruined them, or they have made large mistakes themselves, the monies have negatively effected their lives. So......be careful what you wish for............
I don't know if Bill was guilty or innocent to the charges, but I do feel Fox was chicken S--t to fire him while he was on vacation. My uncle got me hooked on Fox several years ago due to Bill O'Reilly and Greta Van Suskirn. Now both are gone. I can't stomach much more of Sheppard Smith, Meghan McCain is too much her father's daughter, and there is something about Tucker Carlson that just bugs me. Guess its time to find a new channel to watch. As much as it hurts to do so, I may go back to an hour a day with MSNBC to see Greta.
I wish Bill all the luck and I look forward to reading more of his books! Will miss seeing him on my tv each weekday. Thanks for nothing, Fox.
Leftist commies win again! My ankle grabbing father suggested that "this is not political at all". Fox is dead to me. Period. They caved to ankle grabbers, hearsay and inuenedo. Fukcing disgusting. This is how the left will win. Every single company that pulled ads is on a list in my wallet so as to remind me of who else is to blame.
Fukc mob rules and fukc this country for going in this direction where you can destroy a person's career via social media and lies!

It seems to me, from reading about 2 dozen of these comments, that everybody is missing the point. The firing has very little to do with what O'Reilly has done or not done. Most of the alleged bad behaviors are years in the past. Why fire him now? The exodus of the advertising dollars which has occurred in recent weeks due to the leak of the story about the payoffs. No leak; no exodus of dollars; no firing of O'Reilly.
i cried. i've been watching for a decade plus some. i feel so angry as well. the left has been trying to destroy him for a loooong time & sadly, they seem to have won. [weeping now as i type] i think he has been ''herman cained'' i'm sure you know what i mean by that.
If only someone would come along and take the news channel control away from liberal Democrats and socialists. FOX is going down the wrong path now. We already see how dishonest and censor filled CNN and MSNBC are plus a ABC, NBC, and CBS.
All others like Newsmax and The Blaze are being suppressed as the left does not want uncontrolled news.
I don't believe Fox fied him, no matter what he as extremely informative and he will be sorely missed. He influenced a great percent of us and I always watched him. People still pay to hear Clinton speak and his was proven to the whole world. Bad move losing Bill.
The sad part of this is that the charges are false. Fox News carries liability insurance. Judy Laitinen is correct: innocent until proven guilty. Fox should know that anyone in a position such as O'Reilly constitutes a perfect target for all kinds of trash.
The sons did this against the father's advice and counsel. They would have done well to listen to him. But one gets the impression that Lachlan and James Murdoch would have problems even organizing a two-car parade. This seems to clinch that idea, since it has been shown that the Left has had a campaign of lies going flat out meant to feed the advertisers. The advertisers are just dumb enough to swallow all of this crap at face value.
The same thing was done with the Ivanka situation and several big businesses fell right into that trap, having seen their bottom line sag through the floor. Quick-witted competitors, who saw through this scheme, immediately picked up on the Ivanka incident and their sales have skyrocketed according to all of them who have been asked.
But, then, the boys must do just the opposite from what their father suggested. Of course, if the aim is to damage Fox as much as possible, this appears to be an excellent way to begin that project.
Fifteen years ago, my dad introduced me to the O'Reilly Factor, and I look forward to watching the shows every night. BIll O'Reilly was the best, it will be hard to replace him. I have stopped watching the Factor and now tune into Hannity!
To think there is a group of people celebrating this and giggling with glee that they could help wreck what some spent 21 years building. And still no evidence or proof. To bad they don't hold their Presidents or candidates to as a standard as they do TV hosts. To them a President can be a serial molester, while his wife tries to ruin and bury his victims. They are held out as champions of women's rights. O'Reilly accused? They go apeshit and you'll see people coming out of the woodwork trying to cash in. Wrong on a lot of levels to a good man.
Sam. Unfortunately, yes they do sometimes. I was a fairly high level manager for a couple of very large Financial Institutions and one small one. I've seen more than a few men set up and forced out. Either it's one or a few employees who set up someone for personal reasons. Or the company setting a guy up to fire him by falsifing paperwok, audit violations ect. They know a lot of times it's cheaper and radius is not intended
Blah, blah, blah... would you like some cheese with your "whine"?
Put on your big boy/girl panties and move the f*ck on! Stop throwing a tantrum like spoiled brats. Isn't that what you're always accusing the Liberals of doing? Jesus Christ!
I know. I know... You can dislike what I say all you want. It dont mean sh*t to me though. Sometimes the truth hurts folks.
This is so wrong. Is Fox going to now be part of the Fake news as all the other channels apparently are. We had only one channel we could trust that was not part of the lefts agenda, looks like we may now have none. So sad Fox. Bring back Bill . Where is your integrity? I am so sick and tired of all these lying left wing women crying wolf, and you all cower to the B.S. cause you don't want to lose crooked money from companies that are bought off from them. Screw the money and sponserships, and have some truthful honest morals.
I think it was a big mistake and although I find sexual harrassment deplorable I do not believe any of these women. The last one to come forward is mad because wshe was not hired permantly and she should be thankful someone said something nice about she is a real barker wanted her 15 minutes of fame I do not believe it for a minute.
You have rreduced American society even further with this termination of a man who held America to a higher standard. Murdochs you have brought America down with this. Fox is over. you have lessened your network lowering yourselves to the gutter with msnbc
Fox News worked hard, was dedicated to driving down their viewership by 50%. Their dedication to owner Rupert Murdock's N W O - N A U ambitions, their conservative base finally awakened to the hatred. the ownership & management of fox , like Michale Bloombergs ,have for the American citizens. Their belief that all population of the world should be enslavet to their FEW HIGH & MIGHTY, The only ones that know and understand anything and those that feel the masses only get in their way of POWER. >
I a woman. A former victim of sexual abuse. I have also walked thru the nightmare with someone close to me wjo was falsely accused, unjustly charged eitj NO investigation. The dete tive coached a manufactured statement. The prosecutor hid evidence (Brady Violation - criminal act).
We MUST protect all victims including those who r falsely accused. INNOCENT unti PROVEN guilty. Not opion guilt.
This rape culture has more to do with victim claiming than victim blaming. With character disturbed individuals, those who hhhahave watched 50 shades of grey one too many times & Lifetime Television where EVERY movie portrays woman as victims and ALL men as victimizers have fueled this culture. False accusations have bevome an horrific epidemic. We must protevt ALL victims including those who r falsely
Everyone keeps saying that firing Bill was a big mistake. But, for the Murdoch boys it is no mistake. What better way to kill Fox News than to fire its #1 broadcaster? The liberals blame Fox for Hillary losing the election and now this is their retaliation. The Murdoch boys know that if they fire Bill under false pretenses that his loyal followers will boycott the channel and bring an end to a strong conservative voice in the media. We can't let them shut down the conservative view!! Look past the actions and analyze the motives people. It's what O'Reilly would want you to do. Gonna miss Mr. O'Reilly and I'm not sure they have much of anyone able to fill his shoes but I REFUSE to watch CNN or NBC.
I noticed something in Bill's demeanor the week before this story broke. I said to my wife, either on Wednesday or Thursdays show before he went on vacation that Bill seemed to be off his game. I imagine this was swirling around his otherwise impervious brain.
Something else is going on here. Is it possible that Obama, Dems, lefties and Murdock boys finally got their way because O'Reilly wouldn't be controlled? Nothing was proven with regard to O'Reilly...he should of had the benifit of the doubt until proven otherwise. O'Reilly had America's ear and the Dems hated it...Trump elected! I'm done with FOX.
