Bill O'Reilly Officially Departs From Fox News Amid Sexual Harassment Scandal!

no title

Bye bye, Billy!!!

Fox News has spent several months — and several MILLION dollars — trying to keep Bill O'Reilly's sexual harassment scandal at bay.

But with dozens of accusers coming forth with harassment accusations, and the only public support of The O'Reilly Factor host coming from self-admitted pussy-grabber President Trump, the cable news network is finally wising up!

That's right, it's the dawn of a new age for the conservative news network. The political pundit has officially gone the way of Roger Ailes and departed from Fox News for good!

In fact, it was Fox News Chairman Rupert Murdoch who made the news official as he noted in a statement:

"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."

We guess Bill's vacation just got extended! This news isn't a complete surprise as there have been murmurings that this firing was likely to happen this week.

You know what?? Good riddance!

Bill O'Reilly better start looking for a new gig!

Report: Bill O'Reilly's Behavior Helped Push Megyn Kelly Away From Fox News

no title

Leave it to Bill O'Reilly to fuck up his entire network as his career swirls in the toilet.

A new report out yesterday evening in the New York Times indicates that O'Reilly's behavior specifically may have been the final straw that pushed Megyn Kelly from Fox News and into her new role at NBC News, according to insiders.

Related: Baldwin's Impersonation Of O'Reilly Is EVERYTHING!

It all stems back to last year, when Kelly came out against then-Fox News head Roger Ailes, and on TV one morning as a guest of another network, O'Reilly roundly dismissed the accusations, belittled Kelly, and came in the defense of Fox as opposed to helping a fellow on-air anchor.

Sounds like Bill.

Megyn was allegedly so fed up from that exact moment that O'Reilly created, she used it as a final factor in her decision to leave Fox for NBC — and she apparently felt that, because of O'Reilly's words, the culture at Fox News was never going to change, Ailes or not.

O'Reilly's lawyer, Marc E. Kasowitz, responded to the NYT and this new report in a statement (below):

Bill O'Reilly Is Going On 'Vacation' Amid His Sexual Harassment Scandal — But Will His Show Actually Return?

bill oreilly vacation announcement

Bill O'Reilly is taking a vacation amid his recent sexual harassment scandal… but will he be back??

On Tuesday evening, The O'Reilly Factor host announced he'd be taking some time away from the cameras for a little rest and relaxation. While this vacation may seem like the A-lister has been suspended from his popular show, the journalist was vehement that he booked the trip "last fall."

Sooooo, this awkwardly timed vacation has NOTHING to do with the fact that The New York Times reported he paid $13 million to settle harassment claims?? Huh.

In fact, a Fox News spokesperson even confirmed O'Reilly would be back on April 24. Bummer.

Nonetheless, things still aren't looking great for the TV personality. According to NYMag, there's talk inside Fox News that Bill's most recent show will be his last. It's said the news organization has hired

Fox Reporter Claims Her Hostile Workplace Lawsuit Led To Retaliation & Harassment

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersBill O'Reilly

Lidia Curanaj amends original lawsuit against Fox.

Things just keep getting worse for Fox!

A reporter named Lidia Curanaj has amended a previous complaint against 21st Century Fox, bringing up the Bill O'Reilly controversy and claiming superiors retaliated against her after she filed a lawsuit citing a "misogynistic culture" at the company.

In new court papers filed Monday, and reported on by The Hollywood Reporter, the woman, who works as a reporter at Fox affiliate Fox 5 in New York, stated that her station's managing editor became overly concerned with her every move in an attempt to portray her as a bad employee after she filed the original suit.

For example, Curanaj claimed she was given permission to get her cell phone repaired after it stopped working during work hours, but then was admonished for doing so by Peter Facini, the station's managing editor. In another instance, she was using the restroom (while pregnant and in her third trimester) when Facini began frantically looking for her and paged her over the intercom. However, when Curanaj returned to the newsroom she found that there was no breaking news and that another reporter had already been dispatched to the scene.

In her original lawsuit, Curanaj also complained of Roger Ailes, claiming

The number of advertisers who have fled from Fox News over Bill O'Reilly's sexual harassment scandal continues to grow.

Over 50 companies have now pulled their ads from The O'Reilly Factor — even a couple who had already refused to advertise on his show!
