Update: Parent company 21st Century Fox has just confirmed

“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.”

As we detailed earlier, amid his sudden ‘vacation’, and following initial rumors of a split within the Murdochs over Bill O’Reilly’s future, is reporting that the Murdochs have decided his 21-year run at Fox News will come to an end.

According to sources briefed on the discussions, network executives are preparing to announce O’Reilly’s departure before he returns from an Italian vacation on April 24. Now the big questions are how the exit will look and who will replace him.

Wednesday morning, according to sources, executives are holding emergency meetings to discuss how they can sever the relationship with the country’s highest-rated cable-news host without causing collateral damage to the network. The board of Fox News’ parent company, 21st Century Fox, is scheduled to meet on Thursday to discuss the matter. Sources briefed on the discussions say O’Reilly’s exit negotiations are moving quickly.

NYMag’s Gabriel Sherman notes that:

the Murdochs’ decision to dump O’Reilly shocked many Fox News staffers I’ve spoken to in recent days. Late last week, the feeling inside the company was that Rupert Murdoch would prevail over his son James, who lobbied to jettison the embattled host.

It’s still unclear exactly how the tide turned.

Spokespersons for 21st Century Fox and Fox News did not respond to requests for comment, nor did O’Reilly’s agent, Carole Cooper.

    It was obvious the claims were true.

    When I first heard about people accusing him of sexual harassment there was audio a girl recorded of him saying he wanted her to use her toys on him, cause he knew she had some.

    This has gotten posted on the internet too.

    Now that audio seems to be scrubbed from the internet, I couldn’t find it anywhere. Why? Cause it was real.

    He’s a big mouthed, hypocritical, liar.

    And a pervert who demeans women.

    All while guiding the good white Christian Americans that line in this country.

    Pro tip: all our presidents, including Trump, are the same way.

    A nominally-conservative venue, which will not discuss radical Reconstruction. :neutral:

    Look at the people, who they have hired. Literally,, or wherever. I sincerely doubt whether they aired an irreproachable person, even once, ever, with no strings to pull.

    Turn it on, but with one pre-condition. We’re going to assume that you have an antebellum kind of morality — generically white, patriarchal, Protestant, not strictly sadistic, but lowered expectations — and, you want to live in a bubble. How long can you last, without turning the channel. :roll:

    If the story comes as a surprise to you, there is nothing more I can do, to help.

    This country has gone through different stages, along the lines of clearing of wildlands and farming, high density housing and the loss of manufacturing. We are entering into a transitional stage, because the noble lie or mainstream narrative has lost all credibility. Every chapter in our story, was first started by some motto or jingoism, and they’re going to have to get a new one. Old Economy Steve, the neocons, and Boomers are jokes — not legends.
