    rupert may want to consider beefing up security...

    While you may know that O’Reilly has penned the historical Killing series, his first book was a fictional thriller titled Those Who Trespass: A Novel of Television and Murder. The book is a suspenseful psychodrama that chronicles the life of a newsman named Shannon Michaels at the “Global News Network” who begins murdering his former colleagues when he’s fired from the network. Here’s the plot description:

    One by one, high-level executives and correspondents are being murdered. Soon it becomes clear that the killings are linked, the work of a bitter former newsman exacting revenge on those who derailed his career. Tommy O’Malley, a tough but warmhearted New York City detective, is assigned to crack the widening, high-profile murder cases, but encounters competition from a beautiful and tenacious tabloid reporter, Ashley Van Buren. As the story unfolds, Tommy and Ashley quickly discover they’ve got much more in common than a knack for solving crimes.

    Per a New Yorker feature about O’Reilly in 2006, the novel is described as a “revenge fantasy” that displays “extraordinarily violent impulses” against women and men that also threads in elements of O’Reilly’s real-life Falklands War experience when he worked at CBS News. (He left CBS in the ‘90s after he and his team’s exclusive footage of a riot was allegedly not properly credited in a news report.) Here’s how the magazine also describes some of the book’s murders:

    Michaels stalks the woman who forced his resignation from the network and throws her off a balcony. He next murders a television research consultant who had advised the local station to dismiss him: he buries the guy in beach sand up to his neck and lets him slowly drown. Finally, during a break in the Radio and Television News Directors Association convention, he slits the throat of the station manager. O’Reilly describes each of these killings—the careful planning, the suffering of the victim, the act itself—in loving detail.

    Sad for who? Why would anyone possibly feel sad for some ultra-rich jerk? The guy can go home and swim around in a giant silo of money Scrooge McDuck style. Who cares...
    Apparently his contract says they pay him his annual salary if they fire him... $25 million.

    To go with the other $25 millions he's trousered over the years.

    I don't think he's particularly fucking sad, a tad embarrassed maybe.

    Doesn't it stand to reason then that some people might be saddened if their finances are looked after by daddy and they're jerks?

    I don't understand. Is the dad the jerk in that scenario, or the kid?

    I'm picturing both being jerks for some reason...

    it's a "class thing" with brits like cyrille.

    i was sitting in red robin last night (stop in a couple times a month on the way home) enjoying a guinness pint, reading a u.k. tabloid, while waiting for my fish/chips to go.

    a couple of chavs sitting next to me were pissed out of their head, saying i look like a posh cnt.

    whether one is rich or not, the powers-that-be take people down when it suits their purpose.

    what should the fact he's rich have to do with it?

    money can soothe his mind and repair the damage to his reputation?

    Some people just look like what they are. Their behaviors and hateful thoughts somehow seem to actually physically shape how they look. Bill O'Reilly is one of these people.

    No amount of money will ever change who he is. A bitter, hateful little bitch.

    Sure I gave my opinion on the 'issue', such as it is, and I also enjoyed your amusing little anecdote.

    Best regards.

    Yes, it's sad. Sad for all the blue-haired trailer trash across United States who actually believe that the bullshit he spews every night, constitutes real journalism.

    O'Reilly, Hannity, Carlson, and those fuckwits on The Five, are the reason dimwitted Faux Noise viewers like yourself are the most misinformed people on the planet.

    John Oliver is a good starting point.
