    Same difference these days. Local news channels cover white house politics more and more now. I guess it was Gretta that went to MSNBC.

    Brett Bair minus his panel is the only slot not on a weekend that even remotely resembles a news show on FOX. And even then, it's just White House politics.

    The cable shows are good for entertainment a one or two conversation topics but they cover such a miniscule range of news it's self-defeating to spend more than 30min a day listening to it. Thank god for NPR, POTUS, Bloomberg, and BBC. I'd blow my brains out if my only choices were FOX, CNN, MSNBC, and their parent networks.

    I don't see that at all. He is way fast, but he barely stutters at all. He clearly sharpened his skills on debate team or something.

    How can you claim the allegations have no foundation?

    Does he call his female co-workers and masturbates on the phone while saying weird shit to them?

    If not, he's an improvement.

    I would infer that he is talking about material evidence, not mere testimony. After all, the latter can be fabricated, entirely, so it isn't a stable foundation for investigation.

    ^^^^^ Thanks. That's pretty much it.

    Again... no fan of the guy. He can go and I could give a shit. I just am not a fan of how they have gone about it. Give me some evidence.

    hullo Whippy McGee,

    the Murdoch family has seen all the evidence they want to see via their own, internal investigations.

    what they don't want is for their advertisers to see it.

    There won't be much evidence in a case like this. Certainly not anything to satisfy the public. It's hearsay and witnesses I'd assume. I have heard some accusers submitted e-mails as evidence as well though.

    In the end, this is all about PR. He might've gotten off, if they hadn't already had a similar incident with Roger Ailes not too long ago. They don't want to have a reputation of being the sexual harassment network.

    I agree.

    The two Murdoch sons have wanted O'Reilly gone for years. I don't like rolling a guy that has worked at a job for years without something conclusive.

    I have been a manager where a woman claimed sexual harassment from a guy. What she didn't know is that I knew the guy for years way before the work. She also didn't expect another woman to come forward and confirm she was full of shit. I fired the accuser after I reached out to 3 of her former employers who all told the same story. She had done it before.

    I am not saying the women are lying, but I don't like to see a "he said" / "she said" end a career and hurt a reputation.

    It's not as simple as that in O'Reilly's case though. He has already settled multiple cases. Now, of course there are many reasons why one might choose to do that instead of fighting it, but the optics are that you did it, and paid people to shut up.

    It's not like one woman accused him, and they just fired him. He had quite a lot baggage that piled up real fast.

    Just give Ann Coulter a show already and throw Hannity in Bill's time slot.

    It's not "he said, she said." Andrea Mackris, the one who got the original settlement, recorded his harassing phone calls. That's why they paid her so much compared to the other women, so she wouldn't release them. He's lucky that TMZ wasn't around in 2004.

    The transcripts of the calls were also the source for this delightful opera:

    There are also several more coming out now who aren't even asking for money.

    Not to mention the employees at Fox who are suing for racial discrimination.

    Basically, after Ailes got kicked out, all of the dirty laundry started getting aired.

    I was reading Facebook fake news sites about O'Reily and holy shit the right O'Reily supporters are fucking delusional. Talking about how God is giving him a better path, how it's a conspiracy against him, how Fox is pushing a liberal agenda. They like ignored totally Alies sex harassment and that ole Bill is no better than former POTUS Slick Wilie
