Today is a day when the world loses one of the true kings of television. Bill O’Reilly, after nearly 21 years on television, will be going off the air.
According to a report from New York Magazine,
FOX NEWS HAS DECIDED TO TERMINATE BILL O’REILLY’S CONTRACT!
And NY Magazine is not the only ones reporting this. Oliver Darcy, Politics editor at Business Insider, tweeted an internal memo from FOX themselves confirming his removal.

Wow. And that was DIRECTLY from FOX News. That seems like a real nail-in-the-coffin to me.
Supposedly the decision was made after Rupert Murdoch’s sons, Lachlan and James, pressured their dad to remove O’Reilly following the sexaul assault charges that were made public.
So who is gonna take over the coveted O’Reilly Factor spot on FOX? Well, the final candidates are:
Personally, I am cheering for Perino to get the spot and I’ll tell you why. Tucker Carlson is one of my favorites, however, he has a GREAT spot already. FOX News could use more female stars after Megyn Kelly left, and Dana Perino is great.
Who do you think FOX should choose? Share your answer with everyone!
