O'Reilly out over harassment allegations

It wasn't clear when those stories would end, with a group of women demonstrating in front of Fox's headquarters Tuesday and another woman, a former clerical worker at Fox, calling a harassment hotline and accusing the host of boorish behavior.

Bill O'Reilly may be officially leaving Fox News, but he is not departing the network quietly after many allegations against him. O'Reilly has lost his job at Fo. Sources close to the Fox News drama claim "a final decision on Mr. O'Reilly's fate could come as early as the next several days". O'Reilly has lost his job at Fox News Channel following reports that fi.

O'Reilly has been off the air since last Wednesday, part of what was billed a planned vacation around the Easter holiday.

Fox News addressed the departure of Bill O'Reilly Wednesday night, as the show that used to bear his name debuted as simply "The Factor".

"After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the company and Bill O'Reilly have agreed that Bill O'Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel", 21st Century Fox said in a one-sentence statement on the matter.

O'Reilly's departure is the second major blow for the right-leaning news network in nine months. Fox's longtime CEO Roger Ailes resigned abruptly amid similar sexual harassment charges last July. Its leading female star, Megyn Kelly, decamped for NBC in January. The channel's majority owner is Fox News Channel parent company 21st Century Fox.

That certainly could happen, though it probably won't be easy.

Star cable news anchor Bill O'Reilly will not be resuming his position as host of Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor", announced 21st Century Fox on Wednesday.

First Potomac Realty Trust (NYSE:FPO) Valuation According To Analysts
California Public Employees Retirement System increased its stake in shares of QTS Realty Trust by 1.6% in the third quarter. Digital Realty Trust Inc.'s growth estimate for the current quarter is 40.7 percent, and 105.3 percent for the next quarter.

"Getting rid of the old guard is a way to do that", said Dan Cassino, a professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University and the author of "Fox News & American Politics: How One Channel Shapes American Politics & Society". "Cable news is someone standing on a mountain top shouting, and Bill O'Reilly was on the highest peak so he echoed across the landscape". Dozens of his show's advertisers fled, even though O'Reilly's viewership increased. "The Five", a talk show with five rotating hosts that regularly airs at 5 p.m. ET, will move into the 9 p.m. time slot. He thanked his viewers and noted the success Fox had achieved. "When we look at data, at what programs people report watching, you just don't find people who watch Bill O'Reilly and nothing else on Fox", Cassino said.

His show generated $178 million in advertising revenue in 2015, according to Kantar Media. Advertisers may have been reluctant to return if there were continuing harassment complaints.

O'Reilly and President Donald Trump are both "crowd-pleasing showmen who know how to signal to loyalists in their audience that they are not taking themselves quite as seriously as their detractors are", said news consultant Andrew Tyndall.

The U.S. Attorney's office in NY is investigating how 21st Century Fox handled the Roger Ailes scandal. Olbermann said that when he was working at Fox Sports in 1999, he helped a friend get a job at Fox News.

The five women who received settlements either worked for O'Reilly or appeared as guests on his program, according to 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".

O'Reilly said in an April 1 statement that he had been unfairly targeted because of his public prominence.

O'Reilly's attorney, Marc Kasowitz, charged that his client was being subjected to a "brutal campaign of character assassination" and that there is a smear campaign orchestrated by far-left organizations bent on destroying O'Reilly for political and financial reasons.

Noting the "dramatic changes", Perino said: "It is the end of the era".
