Liberal Media Destroys Bill O'Reilly's Career

    This is a sad day.

    The failing New York Times ran a smear campaign against Bill O'Reilly printing baseless claims about him sexually harassing women. After public outrage over nothing, companies started pulling their ads and public pressure mounted leading Fox News to fire him.

    What do you think?

      This is a great day, the frog mouth of the airwaves has finally been silenced. O'Reilly only has himself to blame, do you really think that a rightwing mouthpiece like Fox News would have even considered canning O'Reilly if there were not a compelling reason?

      He is a pompous and arrogant man and to him I say, Good Riddance!

      To the Right: blaming the so called 'liberal media' is proving to be less and less effective over time. And there are yet to be more upheavals in store.

    O'Reilly destroyed his own career by his actions.  He apparently got away with them for far too long, as did others at FOX.  I hope this action starts a chain reaction in other corporations because FOX is surely not the only toxic environment for women out there.

      Kathleen, isn't it odd that Fox and O'Reilly paid out $13 million to settle sexual harrassment claims and avoid multiple trials, but his supporters deny any wrongdoing?

        Only an idiot would deny the possibility of wrongdoing.  But when the spin and claim is that there IS wrongdoing without it ever being proven, well, there's not much difference now is there?

          He does seem to be a victim of his own success.

            Bill will be fine on his own. He is podcasting from his we site. Just wondering where is the other revelations on liberal
            talk show hosts...the selective outrage over sexual harrassment is very telling. Hollywood is the sewer compared to fox.

      +1,000,000,000,000,000!  While O'Reilly is fired from FOX, no need to worry.  His net worth is in the millions w/his books.  He is still a BRAND despite being fired by FOX.  He is definitely not the average Joe Shmoe who was fired from his job.  He still has possibilities of employment because of his brand.  Remember he is a celebrity & celebrities ALWAYS RISE.

    Well now, that's interesting.  Crackalicious says the claims are baseless, Kathleen says they most definitely occurred. 

    Perhaps it could all be settled with a link to a court case finding O'Reilly guilty of sexual harassment?

    Wilderness:  Sometimes actions speak with or without a court case.

      And sometimes (very often in politics) actions are exaggerated and distorted beyond any reasonable "speaking".  They are even made up out of nothing all for reasons from revenge to money to hate and many more.

      So...it seem prudent to require proof of actions before believe they occurred or that they were as described.

    I would say capitalism destroyed his job, he lost the advertisers needed to pay for the program.

    He still has a career and a few billion dollars, so boo hoo.
