Fox News Execs Just Got Brutal News For Firing O’Reilly

5316

Despite Fox News’ tremendous popularity, all of the shake-ups at the network have put it in a place of real vulnerability. The executives at Fox News took a big gamble by removing former chairman Roger Ailes, the man whose vision for the network made it the success story that it is.

These executives just took what is arguably an even bigger risk by firing the network’s biggest star Bill O’Reilly. With the wildly popular O’Reilly gone, the business decision-makers at Fox News just got hit with some very harsh news.

Without O’Reilly, these executives are now looking at a rating freefall and the potential that conservative viewers will abandon Fox News in favor of more up-to-date conservative news outlets, particularly those on the web.

Wrote New York Times writer Jim Rutenberg about O’Reilly’s viewers, “First there is Mr. O’Reilly’s own audience, which steadfastly stuck with him — and then some — as the revelations about sexual harassment first emerged in The New York Times. For as long as he has been ‘looking out for’ them — as he puts it — he has sworn to beat back the ‘secular progressive’ forces of political correctness.

He added, “His fans told interviewers they doubted the allegations against him, describing him as an ‘easy target’ for liberal groups and the same mainstream media he has made a career of lambasting.” Chris Ruddy, CEO of Fox News’ conservative rival Newsmax Media, agreed that Fox News is now in trouble. He said, “Generally, the Fox audience is not going to be happy the network fired him. They’re going to think it was unfair.”

Do you think Fox News executives made a big mistake firing O’Reilly?

  1. Big mistake Fox News made in firing Bill O’Reilly. He is highly respected by millions of Americans for his honest, fair news casting. It’s sad, in a working environment,that a person either male or female, can’t give their coworkers compliments without them being taken out of contest. Being Mr. O’Reilly showed respect for our president, I’ll wager his accusers are organized democrats. My family is looking forward to seeing him on a daily basis in mainstream media, wherever he goes on his next assignment. He was accused, abused, screwed and tattooed all in one setting without giving him the opportunity to legally defending himself.

  5. I am through the with fox.the only show I will watch is Hannity. I feel like the next one they will hatch a fake story on is Hannity I don’t care and don’t believe bill did anything wrong. Look who was making the circuit accusing him! It would take a blind man to come on to Her! Look who was representing her. The ambulance chaser that reprints all these women wanting to get attention and a pay off. Sicken8ng!

  6. FOX was the only channel I trusted. Now that is gone. They can and have done whatever they like (obviously) do I am done with them. Those advertisers are hypocrites. Won’t use them or their products either. So sad. However, we will survive without FOX the same as we have survived without the other MSM.

  7. When O’Reilly returns I might be back, stupid mistake you make influenced by your more stupid wife. I loved your station but what do you have left?

  8. They sure made a mistake. I am sure the females on the network would not object to a comment here and there or they wouldn’t be wearing the sHort, tight, mostly sleeveless (?) dresses that most of them wear and the crossed bare legs they show clear to their hips . They should use Judge Jeanine or the ex Greta(still miss her) as example of how a professional dresses. Anyone know of another conservative or at least fair and balanced networ? Please let me know. Thanks.

  9. Fox News is going to fall flat on their faces. They deserve to have this happen. George Soros paid the Murdochs to do this as it is Conservative. All of them are dirty rotten snakes in the grass and belong in prison to never see the light of day again. Mr. Trump, please get these people that are doing this to O’Reilly and whom ever is next. They all deserve to lose their jobs.

  10. You can tell that somebody liberal is the cause of this. Never figured when I was being taught not to cheat that the smart business and political world would lie so much to get what they want. This is the proof our Americas left wing greed will be the U.S. downfall.
