Bye Bye, Bill O’Reilly

Bill O’Reilly can go infect some other news channel besides Fox. Word is that they plan to give him the boot. Hopefully up the arsehole.

Ever since reports of his $13 million payouts for sexual harassment and verbal abuse claims, Fox has wondered what to do with the guy. During this time, O’Reilly has gone on vacation. Now that vacation looks permanent.

The head of Fox, old man Rupert Murdoch, doesn’t want to can O’Reilly. Of course, Murdoch grew up in a time when pinching your secretary’s ass was a sign of camaraderie. His kids, James and Lachlan, have other ideas. James wants to remove O’Reilly while Lachlan sits on the fence. Such a hard decision. Do we want a sexual predator on our television set or not?

It hasn’t helped that advertisers have fled The O’Reilly Factor. You can’t pay off sexual abuse claims without ad money.

While Fox decides, a new victim stepped forward today. She chose to remain anonymous, but gave her story to Fox’s anonymous tip line.

Lisa Bloom, the victim’s lawyer, claims O’Reilly called her client “hot chocolate.”

“He would never talk to her, not even hello, except to grunt at her like a wild boar,” Bloom tells The Hollywood Reporter. “He would leer at her. He would always do this when no one else was around and she was scared.”

Well, it’s O’Reilly. Grunting is expected.

“She was afraid if she told him to knock it off she’d get fired,” Bloom says. “Now that’s she’s aware this is all in the news, she’s decided to phone in a complaint to the Fox News hotline.”

I bet O’Reilly answers the tip line and gets off on these victims’ stories of helplessness. Makes him feel real powerful.

This is the same guy who allegedly beat his ex-wife and dragged her down the stairs by the neck.

How he lasted this long is a mystery, but it reflects so well on Fox.
