Fox News Has Decided Bill O’Reilly Has to Go

Love him, hate him, or be indifferent about him, Bill O’Reilly had a great run while at FOX news.

 

He may decide to lay low for awhile and then come back with his own cable news program.

It’s also possible he might kick back on live on the $20-million per year contract he just signed with FOX as they will likely be required to pay him.

His escapades have been known at FOX for years while they picked up the tab for making lawsuits go away.

Mr. O’Reilly lost custody of his children in a  court battle with his x-wife, Maureen McPhilmy.

Bill O’Reilly’s ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy has been fined $310,000 by a Long Island judge for not following through on visitation rights.

Nassau County Supreme Court granted full residential custody to ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy, 50, last year.O’Reilly, 67, was supposed to have visitation rights as he shares legal custody with the couple’s son, 13, and daughter, 17.A judge found that on at least one occasion, McPhilmy ignored the court order blaming the wishes of her eldest daughter.

The Murdochs have decided Bill O’Reilly’s 21-year run at Fox News will come to an end. According to sources briefed on the discussions, network executives are preparing to announce O’Reilly’s departure before he returns from an Italian vacation on April 24. Now the big questions are how the exit will look and who will replace him.

Wednesday morning, according to sources, executives are holding emergency meetings to discuss how they can sever the relationship with the country’s highest-rated cable-news host without causing collateral damage to the network. The board of Fox News’ parent company, 21st Century Fox, is scheduled to meet on Thursday to discuss the matter.

Sources briefed on the discussions say O’Reilly’s exit negotiations are moving quickly.

Right now, a key issue on the table is whether he would be allowed to say goodbye to his audience, perhaps the most loyal in all of cable (O’Reilly’s ratings have ticked up during the sexual-harassment allegations).

Fox executives are leaning against allowing him to have a sign-off, sources say.

The other main issue on the table is money. O’Reilly recently signed a new multiyear contract worth more than $20 million per year. When Roger Ailes left Fox News last summer, the Murdochs paid out $40 million, the remainder of his contract.

The Murdochs’ decision to dump O’Reilly shocked many Fox News staffers I’ve spoken to in recent days. Late last week, the feeling inside the company was that Rupert Murdoch would prevail over his son James, who lobbied to jettison the embattled host.

It’s still unclear exactly how the tide turned. According to one source, Lachlan Murdoch’s wife helped convince her husband that O’Reilly needed to go, which moved Lachlan into James’s corner.

The source added that senior executives at other divisions within the Murdoch empire have complained that if O’Reilly’s allegations had happened to anyone else at their companies, that person would be gone already.

Spokespersons for 21st Century Fox and Fox News did not respond to requests for comment, nor did O’Reilly’s agent, Carole Cooper.

THE END

  1. According to media outlets: Tucker moves to 8, The Five moves to 9. Bolling is getting his own show at 5. I’m telling you, sick of the liberal cry babies…Shep Smith is gleefully happy about this.
