Bit from http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/b ... dal-994675

By the time O’Reilly signed off on April 11 for a pre-planned two-week vacation, the advertiser exodus - including blue chip brands Mercedes-Benz, Allstate, BMW, Bayer and Lexus - had reached more than 50. Many buyers were re-allocating their ad dollars to other Fox News programs. There was also external pressure from advocacy and women’s groups including Color of Change and the National Organization for Women.

Fox News Picks Tucker Carlson for 8 p.m. Slot

But many media insiders predicted O’Reilly would survive because of his towering presence as the face of Fox News and also because the company recently renewed his deal – which was set to expire later this year – while it was aware that revelations of the payments were going to be disclosed by the New York Times.

“He’s too important to the bottom line,” said one rival TV news executives prior to today’s announcement. “In some ways he’s more important to them now than Ailes was.”
It's beyond me, dump him and keep him around?

I believe that he is accused of sexual harassment.

Are any of us in possession of the evidence being used in the incident, though? I thought most of the investigation was going on relatively "hush, hush" behind closed boardroom doors. I do find it a little hard to believe that the Murdochs would can O'Reilly if they didn't have pretty damning evidence that his conduct warranted it. The Murdochs are pretty "conservative".

The "evidence" is, as usual, overrated. O'Reilly was let go because of a stunning loss of advertising. It's always about the money.

O'reilly has been a target for years. Advertisers were pressured and threatened with boycotts and PR campaigns so he is gone.

He was also a Trump supporter so this is in an indirect attack on Trump. The advertiser boycott tactic was tried on Limbaugh and it partly worked but other advertizers stepped in.

He'll be fine. He still has the auto parts thing going. ;)
Yeah, understand he has more money then you ... is that true?


Yes, pretty sure of that.

"Sexual harassment" means Billo might have hit on some women, just like every other straight man in America. Liberals have wanted his head for years and were willing to pay for it.

Funny how few liberals have this problem. Maybe because they're gay?

Most "civil rights leaders" including the sainted MLK, had a passion for being the dark meat in a white chick sammich.
Never heard any complaints. That has to be because those women really wanted it, right?

I'm hoping Shempf Smiff gets on the sexual harassment is career death bandwagon....although it'd be embarrassing for the guys to come forward...
