months years decades of being a bigoted piece of sh*t, Bill O'Reilly has finally been fired by Fox News. Is it because of his remarks about slaves being "well-fed?" No, nor is it because Fox News finally decided to do something about him lying on air. O'Reilly's been kicked to the curb because of the multiple sexual harassment allegations that date back as far as 2004 (which was settled for $9 million), although the New York Times says Fox News has known about issues of harassment from O'Reilly since 2002.
In a statement from 20th Century Fox, the company says that “[a]fter 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."
For those who weren't up on it, the New York Times released their investigation on these allegations almost three weeks ago, finding that roughly $13 million has been paid out by Fox, with five women lobbing allegations of sexual harassment or some other kind of f*cked up conduct from O'Reilly.
In the time since this information was released, The O'Reilly Factor lost more than half of its advertisers, while women's rights groups called for O'Reilly to be removed.
Hopefully this is good riddance to O'Reilly, but don't be surprised if O'Reilly hops over to TheBlaze or whatever trash organization will be sh*tty enough to foot the bill for his garbage. For now, it looks like Tucker Carlson's Tucker Carlson Tonight program is being moved to O'Reilly's 8 PM timeslot. Trash news watchers, your new savior has arrived.
