Bill O’Reilly is gone, fired from Fox News. The master of conservative propaganda has been defeated. This happened after he was accused of sexual harassment by at least seven women who worked for him or who appeared on his show. By April 2017, 21st Century Fox and O’Reilly had paid out more than $13 million to settle lawsuits brought by five of these women. Although Fox always defended their rich white male chauvinists, they were now in a corner. Faced with another harassment scandal, Rupert Murdoch’s right-wing network choose to play it save. Bill will not return after his ”holiday”. His program ”The O’Reilly Factor” was renamed ”The Factor” with a blond woman replacing Bill O’Reilly, on 19 April 2017 as host!
This date will be remembered for a long time. Bill O’Reilly has been brought down by woman, the very people he always believed he could control and own. A white male chauvinist, O’Reilly even used racial language against a black worker. She was called ”hot chocolate” by the now ex-host. 13 million U.S dollars were paid to seven woman who had brought charges against Bill. Although he never appeared in court, it is now more then clear that Bill O’Reilly behaved like a true sexist. He saw himself as invincible as he was protected by Roger Ailes, the former chairman of Fox News. Both Bill and Roger are dirty old males, who see females as something they can own. Although they are millionaires and supported by chauvinists like Donald Trump, Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly lost the fight. Both are now fired and removed from Fox News!
