Fox News Cans The O'Reilly Factor

Fox News Cans The O'Reilly Factor

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

Bill O'Reilly now has the opportunity to take an extended vacation after 21st Century Fox chose to part ways with the TV host. "He's been the linchpin" of the lineup, said Jane Hall, an American University professor and former Fox contributor, who noted that it will take a while to see whether his loyal audience sticks with O'Reilly's replacement.

"For years, Fox News executives, like Bill Shine, have provided cover for systematic sexual harassment and abuse of Fox New's employees".

O'Reilly's attorney, Marc Kasowitz, charged that his client was being subjected to a "brutal campaign of character assassination" and that there is a smear campaign orchestrated by far-left organizations bent on destroying O'Reilly for political and financial reasons.

But doubts began to emerge soon afterward that not all such armaments or production facilities were declared and destroyed. On Tuesday morning a residential district in Chan Sheikhun in Idlib province was bombed and poison gas was released .

In 2016, Fox News settled another sexual harassment claim against former host Juliet Huddy, who alleged O'Reilly tried to pursue a romantic relationship with her, made inappropriate advances, including masturbating while talking on the phone.

Up to four million viewers watched "The O'Reilly Factor" each evening, making it the most-watched cable TV program in 2016 and generating $446 million in ad revenues for Fox between 2014 and past year, according to a study carried out by Kantar Media. These included Mitsubishi Motors, which spent about $2.1 million for ads on O'Reilly's show in 2016, making it the show's fifth-largest advertiser. She most recently appeared on the Fox News network earlier this week to battle Tucker Carlson over her desire for the "one-percent" to pay taxes rates of 80 percent or more.

"The O'Reilly Factor" has been the most watched programme on Fox News and was coming off the highest-rated first quarter in its history, averaging 4 million viewers, according to Nielsen.

Others figure that O'Reilly's firing won't be a sticking point for most Fox viewers. "The Factor" will continue until then, with guests hosts Dana Perino tonight and Thursday night and Greg Gutfeld on Friday night. While Fox's two biggest rivals, CNN and MSNBC, would not be interested in hiring him, conservative upstarts like Newsmax or One America News (OANN) could be. Carlson's settlement was for $20 million, and Fox News issued a public apology to Carlson.

She told the Times that after she won a beat against O'Reilly and her promised to treat her to dinner, the host said that while she might want to "break his bank" on her meal choice he was more interested in breaking her back.

The National Geographic channel has turned several of O'Reilly's books into TV movies.

His book publishing partner, Henry Holt, said Wednesday that "our plans have not changed".

Vatican spokesman Greg Burke confirmed O'Reilly was in the VIP section for the pope's Wednesday appearance.
