    Default Bill O'Reilly, you're fired!

    http://www.latimes.com/business/holl...419-story.html

    This is a Fox News alert! Good to see this. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    Fox News has officially cut ties with its biggest prime time star, Bill O’Reilly, following sexual harassment claims lodged against him.

    “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.

    Really, you lost in space or what. Multiple sexual abuse history and going strong. Bill Clinton is a psychopath.

    Interesting is the comment at the end that there will be more revelations of harassment to come. I suspect that's true.

Like I've said before, this whole thing is about money. LOTS of money.
    But leaving like this, he might see a drop in sales for his "No Spin Zone" t-shirts and coffee mugs.

    Does he own the copyright to that slogan?

    I ask not because I really care about his ability to sell merch, but because I would laugh my ass off if they replaced him and continued to call it "The No-Spin Zone"

    Own the copyright? Don't know.

    I will say though that he will have an argument to continue to use it since it is an integral part of the title for one of his books.

    Which in turn will hurt contributions to the charities that he funds with the profits.

    I haven't seen as much hullabaloo about a firing since Truman fired MacArthur.
    They were both blow-hards but Mac was several notches above O'Reilly, to say the least.

    Except that Bill was better at his job than Mac was.

    Yes, O'Reilly is far better at lying his ass off and harassing every woman in sight.

    That was not his job. His job was to put on a news commentary show that brought tons of money into the FOX network.

    Referring to her "blondness" was a remark about her stupidity. Nothing sexual about it. And she is somewhat of an idiot. I'd like to know, when the hell did women become such whiny weaklings?? If she was offended, why didn't she get in his face and call him the Jolly Green Giant? Why didn't she snark right back at him?? But oh no, she tucks her cowardly behind and goes and tells on him, like some child would do. Seriously, it sickens me that women have become such wimps.

    I'm sure you must have solid evidence of that, so please post it. Thanks!

    Why do you wonder about that? Was he fired for sexual harassment too?
    Trump supporters have space bugs in their heads. It is the only explanation.

    Apparently, sexual harassment is not something that you've had to deal with.
