O'Reilly is OUT!

Bill O’Reilly has been forced out of his position as a prime-time host on Fox News, the company said on Wednesday, after the disclosure of multiple settlements involving sexual harassment allegations against him. His ouster brings an abrupt and embarrassing end to his two-decade reign as one of the most popular and influential commentators in television.

“After 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,” 21st Century Fox, Fox News’s parent company, said in a statement.

Mr. O’Reilly’s departure comes two and a half weeks after an investigation by The New York Times revealed how Fox News and 21st Century Fox had repeatedly stood by Mr. O’Reilly even as sexual harassment allegations piled up against him. The Times found that the company and Mr. O’Reilly reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him. The agreements totalled about $13 million.

Amazing how a TV can have such effects on a person, I just turn the channel or turn it off.

I cannot believe in this day an age people still watch network news. Though I do like that tucker spot when he argues w/ people, but I just watch/listen to the clips. Not for "news" but because I think it is funny.

OH YEAH YEAH YEAH. Catch this. O'Reilly's comment about the allegations:
But most importantly, Im a father who cares deeply for my children and who would do anything to avoid hurting them in any way. And so I have put to rest any controversies to spare my children."

I feel a little teary, don't you?? Sniff sniff.
