Bill O’Reilly (Finally)
Fired From Fox News!
Ding-Dong The Witch Is Dead!
After years of sexual improprieties and racist rantings, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is FINALLY out of a job.
Top News Today
He was the host of the popular conservative talkfest “The O’Reilly Factor.” He was also the biggest money-maker on the Fox Network or any cable network for that matter. However, his years as a known sexual predator have now given him the distinction of being just another name on today’s unemployment rolls.
Literally, no one believed the network would rid itself of their thriving cash cow. However, Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of 21st Century Fox (Fox News’ parent company), surprised everyone when on Wednesday, he pulled the plug on “The O’Reilly Factor” and gave Bill O’Reilly his permanent walking papers.
“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 said in a statement.
So what exactly led to the dismissal of Bill O’Reilly?
According to a recent expose’ in The New York Times, several women who either worked for O’Reilly or appeared on his show, “complained about a wide range of behavior, including verbal abuse, lewd comments, unwanted advances and phone calls in which it sounded as if Mr. O’Reilly was masturbating.” At least 5 women were collectively paid $13 million dollars by O’Reilly and 21st Century Fox to keep their mouths shut about the inappropriate behavior and simply go away. However, plenty of women went public with their claims against the conservative host, prompting dozens of companies to freeze him out by refusing to advertise on his show.
For years, Fox and even Rupert Murdoch himself turned a blind eye to O’Reilly’s unwelcome sexual advances because he was such a huge money-maker for Fox. However, it was Mr. Murdoch’s sons and successors, James and Lachlan, who wanted to go in a different direction and argued for O’Reilly to go.
In an internal memo to Fox employees on Wednesday that was signed by all 3 Murdochs, a statement read:
“By ratings standards, Bill O’Reilly is one of the most accomplished TV personalities in the history of cable news. In fact, his success by any measure is indisputable. … We have full confidence that the network will continue to be a powerhouse in cable news. Lastly, and most importantly, we want to underscore our consistent commitment to fostering a work environment built on the values of trust and respect.”
O’Reilly is so unpopular at Fox, news of his dismissal was reportedly met with impromptu jubilation. Social media also had a veritable field day celebrating his demise.

Realizing that his days at Fox were likely numbered, Bill O’Reilly conveniently took a vacation this week so as to spare himself the embarrassment of a public termination. Once the gauntlet came down on him, O’Reilly issued this statement:
“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.”
Aside from (allegedly) feeling up women, Bill O’Reilly spent 20 years at Fox spewing hate, spreading racist rants and mentalities, as well as giving birth to the movement that handed Donald Trump the presidency while providing a safe haven for the very type of white segregationists who actually voted for him.
Well, today, all that is done. Bill O’Reilly is no more. Ding-Dong, the witch is indeed dead. We never have to turn on the TV and see his smug face again!
