Bill O’Reilly Finally Fired From Fox News

(via Variety)

Bill O’ Reilly has a long history with Fox News. He also has a long history of being rude, inappropriate, and racist.

Bill O’ Reilly seem to fit right in with Fox News Channel but once they actually started losing money, the decision was made to finally let him go. This decision was made after The New York Times reported the fact that O’Reilly had paid millions of dollars to settle multiple harassment lawsuits.

This led to over 50 advertisers pulling from The O’Reilly Factor Show. Over the years, the 67-year-old has rubbed many the wrong way, so O’Reilly being fired comes as a relief to quite a few people.

“It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today. I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers. I wish only the best for Fox News Channel”, O’Reilly said in a reported statement.

Outside of O’Reilly’s issues, Fox News has been given the side eye for being bias towards Republicans.

So O’Reilly being fired probably won’t add more viewers but it is good to see him go.
