O'Reilly: Archived In Shame

Today  21st Century Fox announced permanent separation via "firing" from its flagship Fox News evening TV host: Bill O'Reilly.

We Must Have A New Fox News Leader
You know O'Reilly as I know O'Reilly. You may even know the Fox News demagogue much better than me as I never once watched his evening show. O'Reilly has for over a decade was representative of that which is socially wrong with conservative America: elitist, insensitive, white nationalist (and for some Fox News viewers, the perfect racist).

Even the Fox News nonviewer must have harbored a sense of fatality regrading O'Reilly and his top of the perched position at Fox News. Certainly dedicated Viewers of the O'Reilly Factor must have found moments when the "bloviating" demagogue also induced instant crawling skin. Nonetheless, O'Reilly's became the perfect example of giving me an inch and I will talk my way through a mile (and with over-the-top levels of pay).  He was a true entertainer for the less rational among us. 

Tie run through the recent past of one Bill O'Reilly.

O'Reilly uses Ph.D. Professor and Cable news contributor and personality Marc Lamont Hill as a racist prop for his viewers.

The long version: link.

In March, O'Reilly  entertained Fox News Fox & Friends bigoted viewers with a not-so-funny quip about a hair price worn by California's US Representative Maxine Waters. 

Now, take a moment to see a well-known conservative yard boy" adopted a facilitate position for the Fox News host who wears his racist ever so proudly.

In early April, United Airlines exercise unmitigated abuse of a passenger for the word to see and feel.  Fox News's O'Reilly felt the physical abuse of a paying passenger was funny.  He laughed at a heinous and ugly example of US corporatism against a customer.

If you can find anything funny about what follows, you should click off this age and consider never returning.  

Let's step back for classic O'Reilly, It is important to remind ourselves Fox News follows the same basic premise of business followed by all successful organizations. "Give the customer (viewer) what they want."

O'Reilly on "White Privilege"

For some reason even for a non-viewer US broadcast media seems a tiny bit cleaner (for the time being).

UPDATE: O"Reilly ouster statement:
"Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant news network in television. It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today. I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers. I wish only the best for Fox News Channel."
"His dedicated viewers" who watched 20 years of what you saw and read above...and more. One has to wonder if those viewers really believe this guy was headed off to a vacation.

O'Reilly To Vacation? (We Smell A Suspension)

We believe this is really BREAKING NEWS.  We don't do the Breaking News thing on this page as it is used far too frequently used by US broadcast media.  But, these embeds from the Media Matter For Ameican Facebook page warrant the moniker; "BREAKING NEWS".

Before Media Matters, we remind of a piece we posted on yesterday.

A few minutes later Media Matters posted the following embed to Facebook.

A timeline depicting the reports of sexual harassment many women with professional careers at Fox News have made about powerful network figures over the years shows a pattern of corporate retaliation, victim-blaming, and million-dollar payouts for silence.
