O'Reilly done at Fox

O'Reilly done at Fox

by ArgoT » Wed Apr 19, 2017 6:12 pm

My favorite Billy O fired by Fox news amid reports of sexual harassment payments over the years.
Is this more of the PC crowd getting to the many advertisers who pulled out after a NY Times story on April 1, how 5 accusers were paid $13M by Fox over the years.
Bill has denied all allegations and I for one believe him.

I doubt the "PC crowd" would advertise on Fox in the first place.

You think the women are lying?
you think there were not payouts to "victims" of his harassment?
Or do you believe that it doesn't matter if he was harassing women

You think Fox bowed to the "PC crowd" who believed the women and advertisers?

Why do you think they fired him and Ailes?

Of course there have been lies in these matter in the past...So you believe Fox/O'Reilly caved to public opinion and should have fought this then? He's their biggest star. Wonder why they are not doing fighting it after doing their own investigation on Ailes and O'Reilly. Couldn't hurt them anymore could it after all this?

This is not a criminal case re innocent until proven guilty. Fox /O'Reilly have plenty of options.

Absolutely, how about the Duke lacrosse team which is only one example of many lies perpetrated by the accuser(s).

That's fair. And you make a good point. It just makes it difficult to empathize with him.

A couple of the accusers didn't want a settlement. They wanted to make things right when it came to O'Reilly the douche.

Fux is fake news anyway. CNN is not too far behind.
