Fox fires O'Reilly amid harassment allegations

Fox fires O'Reilly amid harassment allegations

Fox News announced earlier Wednesday it was terminating O'Reilly, who reportedly has had to spend a total of $13 million to settle a number of sexual harassment lawsuits.

His departure is a significant blow to Fox News, which has dominated the prime-time cable news ratings in recent years.

Last summer, 21st Century Fox CEO Roger Ailes resigned in the wake of his own sexual misconduct scandal. We have full confidence that the network will continue to be a powerhouse in cable news.

That certainly could happen, though it probably won't be easy.

"The O'Reilly Factor" lost about 90 advertisers following the report, leading 21 Century Fox to oust the television star Wednesday.

"You need to write and call Fox News Channel today and tell them, you can lose your advertisers or you can lose your viewers", Beck said on his radio show.

But unlike Wiggins, the brief career of Parker has been star-crossed, twice felled by knee injuries. The series can shift in Toronto's favour if Valanciunas plays consistently and efficiently.

"The coverage on network news-the broadcast networks-has been 89 percent negative", Perino said, insisting former President Barack Obama received "glowing reviews" in his first 100 days. According to ad-tracking firm Kantar Media, it brought in $147.13 million in advertising revenue in 2016. With a profit center gone, 21st Century Fox stock fell nearly 1 percent Wednesday in heavy trading.

"I spent over nine years playing a character based largely on him, and then 12 months in therapy to de-bloviate myself", the Late Show host, 52, said, referring to his Comedy Central show that ended in 2014.

Starting Monday, Carlson's show will be followed at 9 p.m. EDT by "The Five", relocating from its afternoon slot.

O'Reilly's show, "The O'Reilly Factor", is the top-rated show on Fox News.

"When we look at data, at what programs people report watching, you just don't find people who watch Bill O'Reilly and nothing else on Fox", Cassino said. It could also have alienated employees.

"I wish only the best for Fox News Channel".

Noting the "dramatic changes", Perino said: "It is the end of the era".

"Mission accomplished", said Keith Olbermann, who frequently tweaked O'Reilly on an MSNBC show that competed in the same time slot for several years.

The U.S. Attorney's office in NY is investigating how 21st Century Fox handled the Roger Ailes scandal. The memo was signed by Rupert, Lachlan and James Murdoch, the company's top executives.

"We want to underscore our consistent commitment to fostering a work environment built on the values of trust and respect", the Murdochs said in a memo to Fox News staff members. During his tenure at Fox News, he was accused of sexual harassment by at least seven women who worked for him or who appeared on his show. She quit the job - and the business - due to her treatment by O'Reilly, he said.

Stephen Colbert has always been an ardent Bill O'Reilly protester, the late night host having mocked the ex-Fox News pundit throughout his long career.
