To Bill O'Reilly: You will not be missed. I hope your life from here on out is one sexual harassment lawsuit after another. I hope you go broke.

Must be tough being a woman at Fox News with all of the sexual harassers there.

There have been abuse allegations against O'Reilly for what, over a decade? What made them suddenly matter now?

When advertisers started pulling their ads.

He won't have FOX Lawyers protecting him anymore so I hope more people sue him

That happened after a real news organization like the NYT outed him.

Which is a ironic since Fox (so-called) News supported his behavior and supported his calling the NYT fake news or main stream media. Fox could have broken the story, but it isn't really a news organization. It is just a right-wing opinion factory and truth distortion machine.

O'Reilly rates 67% of evaluated statements being "Half True", "Mostly False", "False", or "Pants on Fire." Only 34% rate as "True" or "Mostly True". Any organization that supports him can't honestly call itself "news".

But the fact remains that both O'Reilly's deceitfulness and his penchant for sexual harassment have been documented for years, even by real news organizations. It was the public demanding advertisers not pay for his BS that finally brought him down.

Naw, he won't go broke, he's got too much money to last him to lifetime is over, so he'll be OK. Personally, I was always a fan of his but not everybody is happy about his departure, so you can't speak for everyone. however, having said that, it goes without saying if you are alleged to do something unprofessional as what he has been accused of doing, then it was the right decision to make and he shouldn't work any longer for the network. You can't go around making lewd comments towards women or trying to make passes or touched him inappropriately, that is just completely uncalled for and reflects poorly on his character.

The king of B/S Mountain out on his butt.....adios poppa bear.

Maybe he shouldn't have called out Don Putin as a "killer" recently the timing seems right. Who knows who has what on who....

See him on the White House staff soon as a replacement for Spicer?

We could watch FOX News long time ago in Japan but no more. I was not a fan of O'Reilly though. I liked Rush Limbaugh on AFN. I liked him a lot more than O'Reilly. Unfortunately we cannot enjoy Rush Limbaugh on AFN as well.

Please, please, PLEASE let the door hit you on your way out, Bill. Let it hit you extremely hard. It'll never be enough of a jolt to concuss you back into reality and to show what an absolute racist, sexist scumbag you are, but hopefully it'll be a concussion all the same. You will NOT be missed. In fact, you will be forgotten very soon except as an example of what NOT to do.

Prove that he's a racist, don't just float it and claim it if you don't have facts to back it up?

You will NOT be missed.

By most liberals, I believe that.

In fact, you will be forgotten very soon except as an example of what NOT to do.

Be forgotten, doubt it.

Prove that he's a racist

It's interesting how you expect people to prove things when they say things you don't like, but how you casually say things that are unproven when it's about someone you don't like.

And then you call Liberals hypocrites. Hmm.

Not really, I don't accuse anyone of being racist. I am just saying, you guys call the man racist, so I am just saying, it is irrelevant how you personally feel, but when a person makes that kind of allegation, you better back it up?

And then you call Liberals hypocrites.

Hey, if the shoe fits....

I never said you do. I said you tell people to prove things that they say, when you often say things that aren't proven.

Can you not see the disconnect between these two things, and how it comes across as hypocritical?

Most people need to get away from this notion of racism being a core identity as opposed to an action people choose to take because it allows them to repeatedly perform racist actions and support racists systems and justify themselves by saying, "I can't be racist because I'm a good person!"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nIlIPjUsuA

But about 5:00 - 6:00 presents a pretty convincing set of O'Reilly moments proving pretty clearly that he repeatedly engages in racism and has no problem fanning hatred and using racist stereotypes to hurt people they don't even apply to. He might not have a klan-like burning hatred of black people like we see in many members of the alt-right, but he has absolutely no problem using the most hateful stereotypes of black people to put innocent people he talks with at a disadvantage. Which pretty much amounts to the same thing, just with added cynicism.

O'Reilly had become a cancer that Fox needed to be cut out.

In the famous words of Malcom X: chickens coming home to roost. And as a farmboy, I never had a problem with chickens coming home to roost.

I believe the official GOP position on racism is that unless you have a picture of someone in a white hood burning a cross, then you can't really claim with 100% certainty that he's racist.

If I were being hypocritical l probably would, but I don't, I never back up facts by injecting my emotions into an argument.

Does that analogy apply only to White people?

How? I think you want to see something that is not there or as in most cases these days claim there is something when in actuality there is nothing.

He worked closely with Al Sharpton before he turned out to be a charlatan. He helped Juan William's get a job on FNC after he was unjustly fired from NPR. Personally, I have never knew of a racist that would help Blacks like this, but I am sure liberals will make some excuse for this.

It's not an analogy, and I never said it only applied to white people, so your asking the question appears to be an attempt at distraction.

No. When Bill claims that a person looks like a drug dealer for no reason other than that they are a black man in a suit, that is objectively racist. When he expresses amazement that a "black" restaurant operates just like any other restaurant, that's objectively racist. When he asks if "reaching out" to the black community involves appearing on Soul Train, that's not just objectively racist, but staggeringly out of touch with current pop culture.

Ah, the old "I have a black friend, so nothing I ever did can be racist" defense.

This is why we need to get away from the notion of racist as a person's core identity and focus on the quality of individual actions themselves. Otherwise, we're left with people like you trying to pretend that one or two actions that are positive toward individual black people (and which also benefit the person doing them) outweigh a lifetime of hateful racist actions toward the entire black community.

Your attempt to pretend O'Reilly's racist behavior (which we have video evidence for) isn't racism is a defense of racism. Your attempt to portray O'Reilly's friendly behavior toward two black individuals as a counter to the repeated racist actions against blacks in general we saw on this video is a defense of racism. And to defend racism is to engage in racism. Just something you should (but probably won't) think about.

The biggest problem all of the networks have is "old age." They continually have the same "guests" on to either support or provide opposition to people like Mr. O'Reilly. Maybe this happens in Japan, but the people in the USA who watch these programs need "new blood" to present the new pro/con ideas. On the Factor today, an older gentleman from the O'Reilly era was invited to voice his ideas. Although they were as important as new views, it was a polite way to show him the door. It is time to forget O'Reilly's program and move forward whether or not readers agree or disagree.

Sorry, but if he were an all out racist, he wouldn't have given either of these men the time of day.

We do know that the Conservatives blame Hillary and the Liberals for O'Reilly going down.

But don't worry because companies still advertise on Fox such as catheter makers and medicine for erectile dysfunction since 99% of FOX's fan base are at the age where they need such products and/or their poor lifestyles since their version of exercise is lifting ham and cheese sandwiches by the many.

He's called White people worse, you're just trying to make it a racial issue for the sake of making it a racial issue. The funny thing with liberals is that anything you say can be perceived as racists, so the best way to combat that is, don't talk to ANY liberals since they love making an issue about anything and everything.

When he expresses amazement that a "black" restaurant operates just like any other restaurant, that's objectively racist.

I don't think so, go to Compton, go to Watts or Chicago, if you stay there for a few hours, anyone would get the same impression, that's not racist pointing out the high crime rate, that's a fact, has nothing to do with being racist, go to Little Tokyo or to Koreatown and you'll see a very different lifestyle, safe to walk the streets, No gangs, no drug dealers, this is NOT about race, the color of the skin doesn't matter, the culture and the climate does.

When he asks if "reaching out" to the black community involves appearing on Soul Train, that's not just objectively racist, but staggeringly out of touch with current pop culture.

The man is 67 , so if you are socially or don't have a clue about the current generation and make dumb statements, it all of a sudden makes you a racist?? Please don't make me laugh. If you want to look at a real racist how about someone like Tom Metzger, David Duke or Alec Baldwin?

You think they're racist? Prove it.

Sure thing...

I drive a lot and listen to NPR much of the day, a network that leans left. The NPR folks are decidedly giddy about his downfall. Several bits on the story I've heard on NPR came complete with celebratory music. Let's face it: Most of the professionally outraged crowd's happiness is not for the removal of a sexist abuser of women, but for the removal of a conservative voice that they don't want influencing the same unwashed masses they hope to influence.
