Bill O'Reilly won't return to Fox News

21 Avril, 2017, 17:06 | Author: Cyril Hebras

21st Century Fox issued a statement Wednesday, April 19, 2017, .

"I understand how hard this has been for many of you", Rupert Murdoch said in a memo to Fox staff. In the fallout, The Associated Press reported that about 60 sponsors had withdrawn advertisements for "The O'Reilly Factor". It could also have alienated employees.

O'Reilly is on a almost two-week vacation at the same time Fox News Channel's parent company investigated a woman's accusation that her career was slowed when she spurned his advances.

Following the Times story, 21st Century Fox said it had asked the same law firm that investigated Ailes to look into O'Reilly's behaviour.

O'Reilly's departure will not affect Twenty-First Century Fox's overall profitability, said Brian Wieser, an analyst at Pivotal Research. (Ailes received a $40 million payout when he left).

The former top-rated cable news host said in a statement, "It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims". But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today.

"I was told the same exact thing".

As for her allegations against O'Reilly, they are quite vague so far but, her attorney, Lisa Bloom, who is also representing two other accusers, claims Heldman was also harassed by O'Reilly and retaliated against by the network. And why did all the advertiser that pulled off his show now, stick with his show this long?

On Tuesday, protesters gathered outside the New York City offices of Fox to demand the cable network fire O'Reilly, whose career has been dogged by scandal. Caroline Heldman, a professor at Occidental College, and guest on the O'Reilly Factor reportedly called the Fox News hotline on Wednesday to make her allegations official against the former network ratings star. Carlson, a veteran who has hosted shows on CNN, MSNBC and PBS, had taken over for Megyn Kelly in January when she announced she was moving to NBC News.

"The Five", a talk show with five rotating hosts that regularly airs at 5 p.m., will move into the 9 p.m. time slot.

His exit came nine months after his former boss, Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, was ousted following allegations of sexual harassment.

As to what his departure means for the future of Fox News, Binning said he's not sure.

Sunderland 2-2 West Ham highlights

"Fox News is a strong brand and the only game in town for millions of loyalists", Peyronnin said. O'Reilly has lost his job at Fox News Channel following reports that fi.

"First of all, I think that right now, the world's oldest profession is getting a great deal more respect among the American people than the so-called profession of journalism", Huckabee replied.

O'Reilly has been enmeshed in controversy since the start of this month after The New York Times reported five women were paid about $US13 million ($A17 million) in exchange for agreeing not to pursue litigation or speak about the accusations.

Fox News sets the agenda for the Republican Party, Binning said, and losing one of their most iconic voices could affect that.

The crisis has also threatened other aspects of the business at 21st Century Fox. We have full confidence that the network will continue to be a powerhouse in cable news.

The allegations against the blustery showman go back to at least 2002.

"CNN always said 'the news is the star, '" recalled Shapiro. "They watched to find out what Bill thought was important and why it was happening". O'Reilly's success at appealing to like-minded viewers made him and Fox into cable news leaders.

But O'Reilly's program showed that a single compelling host with a consistent approach could draw a loyal and large audience. His viewers could count on him each night to attack the so-called mainstream media's perceived bias, proponents of political correctness and the actions of Hollywood liberals.

O'Reilly had ruled the "no spin zone" on television with a quick smile and an even quicker temper.

O'Reilly's program often became as much about the host as it was the news.

This decision follows an extensive review done in collaboration with outside counsel.

The money was paid sometimes by O'Reilly, other times by Fox.
