In a shocking reversal of fortune for one of the most prominent voices in TV news, Bill O’Reilly has been ousted from Fox News Channel amid the firestorm over sexual harassment allegations leveled against the host in recent years.
The official statement from 21st Century Fox:
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.
The new Murdochs are cleaning house. Good for them. Fox News was very close to being a state sponsored and supported media operation along the lines of Pravda in the last century.
