Bill Bashes Fox News & 'Unfounded Claims' After Getting Fired

O'Reilly is now on vacation and, barring a decision otherwise by the Murdochs, scheduled to return to his show on April 24. O'Reilly was photographed on Wednesday in Rome shaking Pope Francis' hand.

O'Reilly's departure from Fox News marks a stunning end to a near ideal marriage.

O'Reilly has just released a statement thanking his fans, but adding, "It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. I wish only the best for Fox New Channel".

21st Century Fox stock dropped following the announcement of O'Reilly's departure from Fox News, closing at $30.39 a share, down 0.88 percent for the day. Bill O'Reilly has lost his job at Fox News Channel following reports that five women had been paid millions of doll.

Marc Kasowitz, O'Reilly's lawyer, said in a statement that the television host "has been subjected to a brutal campaign of character assassination that is unprecedented in post-McCarthyist America". "We know that you, his very loyal viewers, will have a lot of feelings about this and we will talk more about it later on in the program". The article prompted 21st Century Fox to investigate the host's behavior.

His ouster came after reports that five women had been paid millions of dollars to keep quiet about harassment allegations.

Sunshine Heart prices $8m offering
Welles Wilder, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a momentum oscillator that measures the speed and change of price movements. Sunshine Heart (NSDQ:SSH) today announced the pricing of an upcoming underwritten public offering, looking to raise $8 million.

"The real subtext to all this is that Roger Ailes, the founding chairman, the creative drive behind the success of Fox, was forced out last summer for sexual harassment".

"Mission accomplished", said Keith Olbermann, who frequently tweaked O'Reilly on an MSNBC show that competed in the same time slot for several years.

Mercedes-Benz USA, one of the first advertisers to acknowledge publicly that it moved its advertising out of the anchor's "O'Reilly Factor" on Fox News in the wake of revelations about sexual-harassment settlements, is now willing to consider returning its commercials to his time slot.

O'Reilly's exit, which was first reported by NY magazine, follows that of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes, who was forced to resign in July after being accused of sexual misconduct by a number of women, including former anchor Gretchen Carlson. One look at the O'Reilly controversy shows how it's clear that no one, including a massive news network, wants to be associated with an individual accused of sexual misconduct, even if he is steadfast in his denial. Apart from Kelly and O'Reilly, he also replaced Greta van Susteren whose departure from the news network was reportedly less than pleasant. Vatican spokesman Greg Burke confirmed O'Reilly was in the VIP section for the pope's Wednesday appearance.

O'Reilly, who made $18 million per year at Fox, denied the merits of the claims, according to 21st Century Fox.
