Do you even have an inkling at how partisan you are revealing yourself right now?
Bill O'Reilly? There are statements explicitly documenting what I said.
Clinton? There was an investigation and not once did Monica claim any sort of coercion.
She even wrote a book.

But you want to assume the best of the Repub and the worst of the Dem.
Not one iota of effort to figure out the truth.
That much is clear.
Lol, It's still just about words though, isn't it? Maybe women should start standing up to men when they say something that offends them. Maybe something like "Fu*k you, you old lecherous creep, go pick on someone your own age" I guess society has taught women AND men to not stand up for themselves. Just run away and tell, then sue for millions because you were mentally destroyed by those comments.

So true and this is what is killing the news media, select people with opinions they want to share as if this is the real news.

When once it was plain news casters repeating the news as the real news.

Or maybe he was accused of a lot more than that and you just haven't bothered to look...
, really foundit 66, with the amount of profits Bill made for Fox they did what was thought to be the best for the company, as Bill was saying it was a lie.
Just as any business would do.

Yet when sponsors started to drop away and Bill admitted the truth they did as any other business would do, what is best for the company. And let him go.

You people on the Left have something to about. Yet in time each of you will be trying to defend some Leftist for doing what amounts to this very same thing.

People who gain so much power eventually screw it up. That is the nature of things when you start thinking like your a God!

I don't watch Fox much. I put Fox and Friends on in the morning when I am getting ready for work, then alternate between it and Brietbart news on the satellite radio on my way to work.

When I am at the gym I watch The Five while on cardio machines. That will not be happening anymore since they will now be on at nine.

I never cared for O Reilly. Especially since his stand on Second Amendment issues is not good.

We think much the same here. I had issues with Bill as well . He was more of a centrist but frankly his bully approach to many guests became annoying over time. And his abruptness with many Fox female personalities was often perceivable as almost sexist.

Still I think less of FOX for not standing behind their guy over "Allegations." Either there is more to the story than we are being told, or the Murdock family has lost it's spine. They most certainly lost my support.

And they threw the commentator, who made them number one in Cable, under the bus.

Just like you want to assume the best of the Dem F66, that much is also clear.

My own view (for what it is worth) is that just one accuser would appear like a mere crank; but numerous accusers add weight to the proposition that these things actually occurred.

And it is indeed possible that Bill O'Reilly might gain a spot with another network--Greta van Sustern did--but that network would be taking on a liability. So that seems uncertain, at best.

Oops. Sucks when you forget which lies ya told.

Kirsten Powers accused Bill O?Reilly of sexism Wednesday, but in 2014 she sang a different tune – TheBlaze

Political pundit Kirsten Powers appeared on CNN late Wednesday to discuss Bill O’Reilly’s departure from the Fox News network amid sexual harassment claims levied against him.

Powers told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that she had her own personal experience with O’Reilly, in which O’Reilly made remarks that many would have considered to be overtly sexist.

“I was thinking about an incident that had happened early on in my career there where I was on-air there with Margaret Hoover, who’s at CNN now, on a regular segment, we were on every Monday,” Powers said. “And he got Margaret’s name wrong, and Margaret said, ‘Hey, get my name right,’ and he said, ‘Oh, I’m sorry, there’s a lot of blondes in this operation, I can’t keep you all straight. Megyn Kelly’s coming up,’ starts throwing all these blondes’ names.”

“And at the end of the segment, says, ‘Thank you for your blondeness,’ to both of us,”
Powers said.

She then told Cooper that she complained to O’Reilly’s executive producer and demanded an apology, threatening to stop appearing on his show if she did not receive one. According to Powers, O’Reilly’s behavior was excused by a long list of network employees at Fox News, all the way up to former network chief Roger Ailes.

But in 2014, Powers herself was a staunch defender of O’Reilly after former State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf accused him of being sexist, even going so far as to pen a USA Today op-ed titled, “Bill O’Reilly is not sexist.”

“Sexism is a serious problem and a serious accusation. It’s true there are many people who dismiss women as unserious and out of their depth not because they are, but because they are women. Bill O’Reilly isn’t one of them,” she wrote in September 2014.

“I know. As a Fox News contributor, I’ve worked with him for eight years, including weekly segments where we often disagree heatedly. O’Reilly does not discriminate when it comes to expressing tough judgments. Anyone with a passing familiarity with his work knows this, which is what makes Harf’s accusation so irresponsible.” Powers wrote.

Powers clearly stated that O’Reilly’s character was being assassinated because of “trigger happy” Democrats who purposely look for sexism in everything.


Powers did not immediately respond to a request for comment on her change in stance.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand the race-baiters crawl outta the mud to take advantage of this.
