JUST IN: Bill O’Reilly ALL Smiles After Everyone Finds Out What Just Happened To FOX News

Like this article?


After foolishly firing their biggest star and money maker, Bill O’Reilly, FOX News is finding out that they made a HUGE mistake. FOX has dominated the cable news wars for 15 years but that’s all about to change. 

On Monday FOX dropped to last place, behind both MSNBC and CNN in the primetime 25-54 age bracket, the one most coveted by advertisers. In total primetime viewers, Fox beat CNN but lost to MSNBC.

Other than beating CNN in the primetime demo, pretty much the same thing happened Friday. The left-wing MSNBC slaughtered Fox with 503,000 demo viewers compared to just 371,000.

John Nolte at The Daily Wire has more:

While it is fair to argue to wait and see how things shake out, it is also fair to draw a straight line from the firing of Bill O’Reilly and a Fox News that, for the first time in more than a decade, looks vulnerable.

Whatever you might think of O’Reilly, by firing him, Fox broke the First Rule of Scandals, which goes something like this… If you are a big corporation that relies heavily on public goodwill, you leave it up to the customers to render the verdict on a scandal, or you risk an existential crisis against your brand.    

In this case, the scandal involved a number of disputed allegations of sexual harassment against O’Reilly, allegations that involved millions paid out in settlements. At the height of the scandal, O’Reilly’s ratings shot up. In the days leading up to his termination, and even though O’Reilly was on vacation, The Factor held on to its audience, the highest in all of cable news.

Choosing to ignore this glaringly obvious public verdict, James and Lachlan Murdoch dropped the hammer on O’Reilly. There are reports that the left-leaning Murdochs are embarrassed by Fox News (probably at cocktail parties) and therefore eager to change the network’s political culture. If that’s the case, the firing makes sense. But if the Brothers Murdoch are at all interested in being, you know, a success, the firing could hobble the long-time cable news leader for years to come.

FOX dropped its top personality, Bill O’Reilly amid mere allegations of him making inappropriate comments, and the actual truth behind the ordeal has Americans stunned.

Many people have speculated that O’Reilly was the target of a carefully crafted campaign to get him removed from the network, and when all aspects leading up to his termination are considered that appears to be the case. But one major factor in it all apparently came from the wives of Rupert Murdoch’s sons, who are hard core progressives and one of whom actually works with the Clinton Foundation.

These are the people taking over the Murdoch Empire…

From the New York Daily News [emphasis mine]:

Sarah and Kathryn Murdoch — the wives of the ousted talk show host’s young bosses — are at least partially responsible for his humiliating exit from Fox News Wednesday.

Sarah, 44, is a progressive-minded, British-born Australian model, former host of “Australia’s Next Top Model” — and wife of Lachlan Murdoch, co-chairman of Fox News Channel parent, 21st Century Fox. She was also instrumental in convincing her husband to boot the controversial O’Reilly, company sources told MediaBlast. “These woman have unique access and complete trust (of Lachlan and James),” a Fox News executive said.

They’re very progressive and the O’Reilly situation has infuriated them.”

So the wives of them men taking over the only conservative network out there are far-left progressives. Lovely. As Rush Limbaugh has noted many times in the past, people like that devote their entire lives to activism, so why would we believe they didn’t have ulterior motives in pushing for O’Reilly to be gone?

It gets better, or worse, depending on how you look at it. Kathryn Murdoch has a direct connection to someone we all wish would just go away forever.

Politico reports [emphasis mine]:

I thought I’d begin this thing on comfortable terrain, with a small advance on a reportorial obsession of mine: Rupert Murdoch’s relationship with Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Here’s how close they’ve grown: Murdoch’s daughter-in-law, Kathryn (center, above), is currently employed by none other than the Clinton Foundation (!), working with old-time Clintonite Ira Magaziner (!!) on climate change issues (!!!). Kathryn Murdoch is married to the London-based James Murdoch, who’s now the heir apparent to the family empire; she’s described in print as a model and marketing executive.

So far, by the looks of it, firing O’Reilly will bring only downside for Fox News and not just in O’Reilly’s long-held timeslot. This move has damaged the overall Fox News brand with the people it needs most — its core audience of loyal viewers. And if the Murdoch brothers believe they can appease the Left by doing anything other than turning Fox News into another left-wing propaganda ministry like CNN, they are in for a nasty surprise.

Is there any question as to which direction Fox is headed after this?

Yeah, I’m not sure what in the hell is going on over there.

If they think Tucker Carlson is going to save their butts they’re in for a rude awakening.
