|A tired and depressed Bill O'Reilly is spotted in New York buying orthopaedic shoes.|
CAUTION: YOU ARE ABOUT TO ENTER THE UNEMPLOYMENT LINE!
Well maybe not. Bill O'Reilly can retire comfortably with the $25 million dollar payout he got from 21st Century Fox. He was unceremoniously fired out the cannon at Fox News. For over 20 years, the controversial conservative agitator was calling himself the "culture warrior" against the "secular PC" culture that ruins "traditional values."
He still might face lawsuits from the women, the family of George Tiller and of course the ridicule from all the people O'Reilly targeted throughout his 20 plus years on Fox News.
He picked fights with liberals, cable news competitors, rappers, entertainers, abortion doctors, and politicians.
|The final nail in O'Reilly's coffin. They stripped his namesake from the title card.|
"Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant news network in television. 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 will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers. I wish only the best for Fox News Channel."
Well here's a man who continues to blame the victim and believes that "the left" was responsible for his downfall. He and his former boss Roger Ailes flatly deny the accusations.
The New York Daily News got a picture of the old fart. He was spotted in his Long Island neighborhood shopping for some orthopedic shoes. That vacation in Italy was cut short when he got the call from the Murdochs telling him that his job is gone.
|The woman who O'Reilly called "hot chocolate" speaks to The View.|
O'Reilly became a focus of an investigation of sexual harassment. His company paid out $13 million to women who accused him of this. Sleeping Giants, The Color Of Change, National Organization of Women and Media Matters for America pushed an advertising boycott on the program.
By the time O'Reilly was going on "vacation" after he had lost over 80 sponsors to the program.
Also the woman who he called "Hot Chocolate" came forth to explain why she is relieved that O'Reilly is fired out the cannon.
Perquita Burgess and Lisa Bloom appear on The View to speak out on the firing.
By the way, there's no love lost over at Fox News. Besides the name being dropped to The Factor, Dana Perino and Greg Gutfeld conclude O'Reilly's program. Fox News didn't even allow O'Reilly to do a formal goodbye. Sean "Softball" Hannity who had a feud with O'Reilly said on radio, "he never met the guy" and never care much for his way of programming.
Tucker Carlson, the founder of The Daily Caller is now going to occupy the spot. He is notorious for saying sexist, racist, and ignorant things on television. He was fired out the cannon at CNN and MSNBC.
Carlson was promoted to replace Greta Van Susteren when she was fired out the cannon. He would replace Megyn Kelly when she decided to usurp Tamron Hall and Al Roker from their Today spot.
Carlson will have to prove to angered O'Reilly viewers that he can fill the void.
Many of O'Reilly's fans already blame the liberal media, Obama, and these "lying ass bitches" for getting him fired out the cannon. Mind you I've read some of this shit on Reddit.
So the primetime lineup will now be as followed.
5PM Eric Bolling
6PM Special Report with Bret Baier
7PM The First 100 Days with Martha MacCallum
8PM Tucker Carlson Tonight
9PM The Five (includes former O'Reilly producer Jesse Watters)
