Samantha Bee 'Fixes' Bill O'Reilly's Non-Apology

21 Avril, 2017, 19:40 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

Gabriel Sherman, a long-time O'Reilly-watcher at NY magazine, reported Wednesday that the Murdochs - Rupert and sons Lachlan and James - have decided the veteran host must go and were negotiating issues such as the timing of an announcement and whether O'Reilly would be allowed to say good-bye to his audience. Joe Pollak of the right wing Breitbart.com web site wrote a column on Thursday headlined, "Bill O'Reilly's secret: he was a centrist, not a conservative". Thus, Fox News, which is first and foremost devoted to maintaining market share (a.k.a. advertising revenues), had to fold their hand. 21st Century Fox leaders Rupert Murdoch and his sons Lachlan and James said in a memo to Fox staff that their decision to ax O'Reilly came following an "extensive review" into the charges. It's the top-rated show on the No. 1 cable network - one that, according to the investment bank Nomura's estimates, accounts for fully 20 per cent of profits at 21st Century Fox.

Amid the advertiser boycott, O'Reilly announces he is taking a two-week vacation.

"Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the loudest "news" programs in history, which has constantly lied to and entertained millions of dads and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant "news" network in television. At this time, the ad buys of those clients have been re-expressed into other Fox News Channel programs".

His ratings made him Fox's most lucrative personality, with his show generating $178 million in advertising revenue in 2015, according to Kantar Media.

Carlson scored the highest ratings ever for Fox in the 9 p.m. time slot early for the first three months of 2017, but there remains some question about how much that was a result of following O'Reilly in the lineup. She said she felt "triumphant" when she heard about O'Reilly's firing. Bill O'Reilly has lost his job at Fox News Channel following reports that five women had been paid millions of doll. Even if there's some disruption in ad rates or spots, he said, there's a "massive backstop" in those payments, which are long-term deals.

Fox occupies a unique and powerful, if controversial, position in America - watched by a deep and committed conservative fan base that to a large extent includes many of those who voted Trump into office. Otherwise, the network risked developing "a reputation as unfriendly to women, potentially turning off a lot of people", said Charles Taylor, a marketing professor at Villanova University. It could also have alienated employees. Fox owns 39 per cent of European TV giant Sky, and has long wanted to take over the whole company. It's now trying again, although a United Kingdom media regulator must certify that the combined company would be a "fit and proper" owner of the broadcaster.

O'Reilly said in the statement at the time that he had settled only to spare his children from the controversy.

The U.S. Attorney's office in NY is investigating how 21st Century Fox handled the Roger Ailes scandal. Concern over whether Fox broke the law by failing to disclose its settlements to investors is more likely to impact approval than whether the company is mired in sexual misconduct allegations, said Claire Enders of Enders Analysis, who has studied the Murdoch empire for years.

"Lastly, and most importantly, we want to underscore our consistent commitment to fostering a work environment built on the values of trust and respect". But the New York Times reported that two of the O'Reilly settlements were reached after Ailes left.

O'Reilly and co-author Martin Dugard are due to release another book in the "Killing" series in September, and a spokeswoman for publisher Henry Holt and Co. said that plans had not changed.
