Bill O’Reilly’s Out at Fox | It Had Nothing to Do With Sexual Harassment | It Was Sponsors and Money - Lionel

He could have killed that cute baby giraffe live on TV and would still have his gig had not the sponsors bailed. That simple.

Bill O’Reilly has been tossed out as THE prime-time host at Fox News after the disclosure of settlements involving sexual harassment allegations against him and sponsors bailing put an end to it. His ouster ends his two-decade reign as the most popular and influential commentator on Fox News. Period.

“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,” Rupert Murdoch, said in a statement.

And it had nothing to do with lawsuits or behavior. It’s money.

In the corporate USA it's almost always about the money (although losing ventures can still be supported by the military industrial complex for propaganda reasons).
