    I didn't say he was the angry one; I said his audience was FFS.

    If you think a forty-something carpet muncher has an audience of angry old white men, I think you're pissing to the wind.

    So, we agree:

    O'Reilly isn't angry and Maddow is.

    He is gone.

    Bill O’Reilly Is Forced Out at Fox News

    Bill O’Reilly has been forced out of his position as a prime-time host at Fox News, the company said on Wednesday, after the disclosure of settlements involving sexual harassment allegations against him. His abrupt and embarrassing ouster ends his two-decade reign as one of the most popular and influential commentators in television.

    “After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel,” 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, said in a statement.

    One difference is Trump threatened to sue all of his accusers whereas O'Reilly settled.
    One is a disingenuous and showy claim of innocence, the other is an admission.

    Get Bill. Ok got him. A good start. Now let's get rid of a bunch more useless media talking heads. Not just at Fox but across the entire biased political media.

    Nothing wrong with commentary expressing a point of view. Really have no idea who you are referring to Norts or why you think they are useless.

    I really just stay away from cable news in general it is mostly just commentary and very little hard news.

    Apparently, Tucker Carlson will take O'Reilly's time slot.

    I watch Carlson from time to time just to see how obnoxious he can be to his guests. Can't believe he can still get anyone to be on his show. Don't reckon he will last long with what he is doing now.

    I see no reason left for cable to exist, and have been choosing my own news via the 'net for a decade now. It seems particularly skewed if you don't happen to be from the US.

    I particularly appreciate ten years without Richard Quest and Larry King, and completely missing the rise and fall of that utter arsehole Piers Morgan.

    I find it condesending. Tell me what's going on. I am perfectly capable of "analysing" the implications myself.

    including one on Wednesday by a current Fox News contributor who said Mr. O’Reilly had made inappropriate comments to her, urging her to show more cleavage at work.
    Well. Boo-Hoo.

    Of course he will, he's O'Reilly in waiting.

    Smugly agree with anyone that backs up your nonsense, or shout them down if they don't.

    OK. Dopes like me like to hear the opinions of people like David Gergen, Carl Bernstein, Peter Bergen and others.

    Being a bit tongue in cheek. Not all are useless.

    I'm not saying CNN are rubbing it in or anything, but you'd think he'd died.
