No more O'reilley Factor
« on: April 20, 2017, 06:07:50 PM »
For the Fox News/O'Reilley followers (including me), it appears that Bill will be no more on Fox. The additional folks that are coming forward confirm the 21st Fox Board decision to not let him return after his vacation in Italy.

They announced it was Tucker Carlson, not my favorite. Just a different style I guess.

I kinda like him. He's not afraid to ask any questions. The one's that many other journalists would not ask.

I just read that Tucker will be moving to 8:00 PM, the Five are moving to 9:00, Eric Bolling will have his own show at 5:00 and Martha is staying on at 7:00.

I would guess that's less than one years salary for Bill.

What disturbs me, with the state of today's news media and social media, are the number of people who's lives have been ruined by accusations that are never proven. But with our legal system it's cheaper to pay off the accuser than fight it for years in the courts. We need to change the legal system where the loser pays any penalty and the losing attorney pays the wining attorney's fees. If an attorney loses a case he shouldn't get a dime. The plaintiff or defendant should not have to pay legal fees. This would put a stop to most of the frivolous law suits. As it is now the lawyers don't have any skin in the game. They get paid whether they win or lose.

It's sad it took this long, He has had numerous court cases for sexual misconduct and spousal abuse for almost 20 years. As a father of 3 daughters, I am happy that the public is starting to demand retribution for this type of behavior it is no longer acceptable.

I don't know what this world is coming to.  A man pays 13 million ($13,000,000) to 5, obviously lying, women to make false accusations go away and then he still looses his job. 

Oh this horrible liberal media taking down such a wonderful person.  NOT! 

Oh, wait, it is not the liberal media!  It was the multitude of corporations pulling the advertising from the show, and maybe lots of other shows on Fox, costing the corporation to start loosing lots of money. 

This not to say the liberal "talking heads" are wonderful people.  They are as one sided as the conservatives.

I do my best to keep away from BLINDLY watching, reading, or listening to either the right or the left side who jabber about how wrong and horrible the other side is. 

No wonder this county is so horribly divided.  So many people only want to listen to the right side or the left side. 

What ever happened to the middle of the road and moderates!  In this day and age Ronald Regan was a moderate!

I always liked O'Reilly, even though we sometimes disagreed.  Since his employer (Fox) shares his political views and certainly is aware of his tremendous popularity, I have to assume there was simply too much evidence to continue defending him. Ditto for the sponsors who footed the bill for his paycheck.   The whim of public attention made him a wealthy man but now that whimsy has shifted. Sic transit gloria mundi.

My thoughts, exactly.
I pray daily that I never have time to spend watching all the big network news programs on the Eternal News Networks and listen to the pundits pontificate over the demise of civilization as we know it.  :o :'(

Besides. I get all my important news from Facebook.  :o

We "unplugged" about five years ago and ended our cable TV. Dish on the coach has been off the roof once and that was during pre delivery testing. Netflix or DVDs.

Not sure what was going on at Fox News under Roger Ailes, but seems something was amiss. That's too bad as a few careers have been ruined and others involved, Kelley, Carlson, VanSusteren no longer a part of FNC.

Society today demands everyone be very careful what you say and to whom you say it. Funny, over the past few days I have had two different women visit our campsite and incorporate the P word into their vocab! Not offended but though it inappropriate for sure.

The O/P says the women were lying..

People accused of sexual misconduct have two standard replies

1: She wanted it
2: She lied

Of course she did not want it and she had evidence to prove the charges so she clearly did not lie.

at least in most cases.. I do not have the specifics in O'Riley's case but  I do in many other cases (As an observer) and the above is the standard response to such a charge.

EVEN when the evidence is overwhelming.

The thing that makes this outrageous for me is it was all orchestrated by Media Matters.  The left routinely uses programs to generate fake tweets and Facebook posts.  They inundate advertisers with 100 of thousands of these fake posts to convince them that they will lose substantial revenue if (fill in the blank) is not done immediately.  The companies cave in and do what they thing the people demand.  That entire get rid of O'rielly campaign could have been done by 10 to 15 people sitting i their parents basements in their underwear.

You can ignore a message board or a category of boards, and individual forum members, but I'm not aware of ignoring a topic, or maybe I just forgot. If someone finds a way, I'll add it to the Help file linked in the menu above.

So, Fox & O'Rilley paid 13 million dollars based on fake posts.  And the fake posts even fooled the outside law firm brought in to assess the situation.

If you read my post instead of just quoting it, you would have see the part about "They inundate advertisers with 100 of thousands of these fake posts to convince them that they will lose substantial revenue if (fill in the blank) is not done immediately." is was the loss of advertising revenue that got FOX to act."  I would suspect the law firm didn't really analyze every tweet ad Facebook post that was sent to the companies advertising on FOX. And yes this tactic has been analyzed and uncovered in other high profile social media attacks on  companies and high profile individuals.  In the grand scheme of things, overall a 13 million dollar payout to make lawsuits go away is pretty inexpensive compared to years of litigation.  As a post earlier noted, if we had tort reform and loser pays, most of these would not be filed in the first place.

RIGHT ON. It's ALL about the money.

There are NO Reporters or Journalist anymore. They are [News Personalities], Talking Heads. When they get to popular, for to long, in the Ratings (money).. They Have To Go. Just destroy their Persona, Pay them a hefty severance, and make them Fade Away... to write a book or two.... or three

Several others have suffered the same demise. Nothing New here. The smart ones Retire.

If the Media Lawyers can't find anything else that works.. A conjured up Sexual Harassment suit, is the Wild Card of the times. Guaranteed to work. (Tort Reform fits in here)

I am for that this is pointless and would seem to go against the forums policy on political posts as this could become inflammatory in a hurry.
