I enjoyed the show. A bit formulaic, but Watters' bits and Dennis Miller were entertaining and O'Reilly's memo was on the money way more often than not.

O'Reilly is (likely) guilty of the same charges that probably still haunt most of Hollywood today. His problem is his face was in front of the camera instead of being behind the scenes. I think this was an orchestrated effort to take him out by Media Matters and others. How else can you account for such a quick and decisive move by so many sponsors.

...and that's the memo

I didn't watch the show much. I was never a fan of him or Hannity. I absolutely love Tucker Carlson/Ben Shapiro, who are much younger, sharper and funnier. I also really liked the Dennis Miller Thursday segments (which I watch mainly through his Facebook page) and could actually see him being a good replacement. But not sure he'd do it as O'Reilly and him are good friends and Miller probably doesn't want to have to go through the smear campaign he surely would be put through if he went through with this.

Either way, there are a tonne of people who could replace him. Ben Shapiro, actually, would probably be the left's worst nightmare at this point. I don't think I've ever seen him lose an argument (Bill lost plenty over his career).

I used to listen to his radio show a lot (circa 2004). I was always surprised by how he could disgust and infuriate me one second and then say something so insightful as to change my view on something.

I won't miss him, and I much prefer Tucker anyway (loved him on Bubba).

Tucker is purely the best choice. Great entertainer and highly intelligent.

I'm a big Shapiro fan, but I doubt he'd go for a FN gig. They would want him to say pro-Trump stuff and he'd refuse. He likes to be an independent thinker and have loyalty to no one. I follow him on Twitter, and one minute he's praising Trump and mocking Tucker Carlson at the same time. Then he's slamming Trump the next minute and RTing someone with leftist leanings...he has me scratching my head at times.

Bill's time was up. I have no problem with a changing of the guard. Tucker is brilliant, and constantly makes mincemeat of brain-dead lefties. Ever see his "interview" with Kurt Eichenwald? Dear God, Eichenwald came off as defiantly, mentally ill.
The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword.

Dont know the "details" of what REALLY happened (none of us do) time will tell as to what really happened.


I admit like Bill, i do.. Is he rude at times? condescending?.... A blow hard? ... A Loudmouth? YES YES YES YES but he also does have some good insight at times and makes good talking points



If you watched the show you would know he was more "center right" than others on the network, he was not as conservative as others on the network and i liked that aspect from Bill ------- He also showed the absolute double standard and bias of the media at times as well..


He wasnt perfect and wasnt a full fledge reporter (who is these days?) but he was was a force in the industry and really had a helluva a run, cant deny that at all

If you go by money paid out in court, O'Reilly is over 13x the sexual predator Slick Willy is.

A little context, since the comparison was between two specific people. O'Reilly could have fought them and not paid.

I've literally never watched O'Reilly's show and could give two shits about him. When someone comes in here waving their dick at O'Reilly (because he's on the right) when a former president (on the left) did the exact same shit (or worse), I'm going to chime in.

I liked O Reilly i sometimes thinks he just put up a show for the viewers for nobody could be that bat crazy and just switch to normal as he could

Honestly a guy like O Reilly shouldnt be on a large network in the first place , a few good points here and there arent enough for all the BS

Shapiro i smart and often very prepared in the subjects he debate in and is a super star compared to O Reilly

I think you're missing the point a bit. O'Reilly had a certain demographic locked from an advertising perspective. He was reportedly worth close to $200M in ad buys for the network, That is what being part of a large network is all about - ratings.
