Bill O’Reilly is in hot water.
There is a growing scandal surrounding the top rated Fox News host.
And it could take down O’Reilly and the network.
Bill O’Reilly has become embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal.
The allegations resulted in $13 million in settlements.
Then, on April 11th, Fox announced O’Reilly would take a two week vacation.
Liberal media members pounced and proclaimed it the end of O’Reilly.
New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman reported that James Murdoch wanted O’Reilly off the air for good:
“But according to four network sources, there’s talk inside Fox News that tonight’s show could be his last. Lawyers for the law firm Paul, Weiss, hired last summer by 21st Century Fox to investigate Roger Ailes, are currently doing a “deep dive” investigation into O’Reilly’s behavior. They’re focused now on sexual harassment claims by O’Reilly guest Wendy Walsh after she reported her claims via the company’s anonymous hotline.
Fox News co-president Bill Shine has been working hard to keep O’Reilly, sources said. But O’Reilly’s future is in the hands of the Murdochs. “It’s up to the family,” the senior Fox News staffer said. The Murdochs are presently divided over how to handle it. Two highly placed Fox News sources say 21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch would like O’Reilly to be permanently taken off the air, while his father, Rupert, and older brother, Lachlan, are more inclined to keep him. (A spokesperson for the Murdochs declined to comment.)”
Fox pushed back on the report and noted that O’Reilly’s vacation was planned and booked last fall.
O’Reilly rep: The arrangements, including airline and hotel reservations, for this vacation were made last October

The liberal media is celebrating this development.
They despise O’Reilly and Fox News for bringing balance to their slanted coverage.
In fact, CNN has turned into a 24/7 anti-Fox operation.
Their media reporters breathlessly cover every development in this story while ignoring the growing racial discrimination crisis surrounding CNN.
Fox is the top rated cable news network.
And in January, they surpassed ESPN as the top cable news network for total day viewers.
So it’s not surprising that the left-wing media has launched a crusade to take them down.
And the prime target was O’Reilly.
He has been the number one rated cable news host for years.
Now this scandal threatens his career.
Should he be taken off the air?
Should Fox stand by their host?
