As you know by now, Bill O’Reilly was fired from Fox News this week after several women accused him of sexual harassment. His O’Reilly Factor is largely responsible for Fox having become the cable juggernaut that it’s evolved into over the past 20 years.
All of this nastiness went down while he was on vacation and O’Reilly didn’t even have a chance to sign off and say goodbye. Yesterday evening he broke his silence with a heartfelt goodbye to his fans. Here it is:
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.
What do you think? Was Fox wrong to let Bill go? Is he the victim of a left-wing takedown?
