Bill O’Reilly better start looking for a new gig!
According to the Wall Street Journal, Fox News is planning to “cut ties” with The O’Reilly Factor host after he was hit with SEVERAL allegations of sexual harassment. 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.” Well, well!
Not to mention, an insider told CNN that the political commentator and reps for the news channel have already “begun talking about an exit.” About damn time!
Still, nothing appears to be final yet, as The New York Times reported on Tuesday:
“O’Reilly’s fate at the network is expected to be discussed on Thursday at a board meeting for Fox News’s parent company, 21st Century Fox.”
Huh. Regardless, things aren’t looking good for Bill!
This update comes only a week after O’Reilly announced he would be going on “vacation.” Despite claiming he’d return to his show on April 24, tongues at Fox wagged that the journalist wouldn’t actually be back as dozens of advertisers had pulled their commercials from The O’Reilly Factor. It’ll be inneresting to see if O’Reilly pops back up on our TV screens at the end of April.
We guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
