Fox News ends relationship with Bill O'Reilly, O'Reilly responds

Tonight: Mad Lib Theater With Kevin Spacey

Fox News had no choice but to fire O'Reilly.

"Advertisers fled because they immediately recognized what Fox News has ignored for over a decade: that serial sexual harassment is not only wrong, but bad for business".

Stephen Colbert, who mercilessly parodied O'Reilly on "The Colbert Report", paid tongue-in-cheek homage to the deposed host Wednesday on Colbert's late-night CBS show.

And, more than that, about 21st Century Fox's $14 billion bid for the British satellite service Sky TV, which depends on the British government finding the corporation to be a "fit" steward.

Powers said that after the incident she went to O'Reilly's executive producer and said, "He needs to apologize and he needs to never do that again, or I am not doing his show anymore".

NPR reported that "Tucker Carlson Tonight" host Tucker Carlson will replace O'Reilly's 8 p.m. show slot.

Dana Perino, who had been subbing for O'Reilly who had been on vacation for the past few days, acknowledged his departure at the top of "The Factor".

Some of O'Reilly's critics were happy with the news.

The National Geographic channel says it has made no decision about its development of Bill O'Reilly's book "Killing Patton" following O'Reilly's exit from Fox News. Even if there's some disruption in ad rates or spots, he said, there's a "massive backstop" in those payments, which are long-term deals.

Ossoff into runoff with Handel
But Democratic Party supporters were fired up, said University of Georgia professor Charles S. Senator Lindsey Graham of SC said the race showed how the South was changing.

There was also a crucial phone call from an O'Reilly accuser to Fox. Advertisers may have been reluctant to return if there were continuing harassment complaints.

Speaking with Anderson Cooper on "AC360", Powers - a CNN political analyst - described an incident in which she appeared on "The O'Reilly Factor" along with fellow analyst, and current CNN commentator, Margaret Hoover. Fox owns 39 percent of European TV giant Sky, and has long wanted to take over the whole company. O'Reilly has denied wrongdoing.

As the news rolled into Twitter, users reacted accordingly.

"I understand how hard this has been for many of you", Rupert Murdoch said in the memo.

What changed? An investigation by The New York Times.

In a Wednesday memo to employees signed by all three Murdochs and provided to The Associated Press, Fox again emphasized its commitment to a workplace culture of "trust and respect".

"He helped shape the kind of very polarized discourse that has come to define politics over the past few years in America", Hollihan said. "Please see attached for our new programming line-up".

O'Reilly has largely remained quiet in the face of these accusations, though he has rejected them and said he agreed to the settlements only to protect his family. "We actually ended up having quite a good relationship".
