Fox News was pressured to fire Bill O’Reilly after left-wing activists targeted advertisers.
Once the advertisers quit paying to run ads during “The Factor” the writing was on the wall.
But now that liberal activists have tasted blood over at Fox, it appears they only want more.
New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters suggested that Sean Hannity could be the next target.
The Washington Examiner highlighted his comments from a recent MSNBC appearance:
“I think you have to look at somebody like Sean Hannity,” Peters said, “and question whether or not his almost propaganda-like attitude and programming every night is going to be acceptable in the minds of the family which is clearly trying to shift the network in another direction.”
The Washington Examiner then opined:
“Hannity is widely viewed as President Trump’s biggest champion in TV news, and rarely has anything critical to say about the White House. He is also now the longest running host in Fox’s prime-time lineup now that O’Reilly was ousted this week.
“The fallout and reorganizing of Fox is reportedly being led by Lachlan and James Murdoch, who are said to be attempting a repositioning of the highest-rated cable news channel, well known for its conservative bent.”
If it’s true Rupert Murdoch’s two liberal sons are trying to “reposition” Fox News, things could get ugly.
Mark Levin, who is certainly no fan of O’Reilly, said this week:
“The left works as a cabal. They target people and they try to take them out.”
So the question is, now that the left succeeded in strong-arming Fox News into firing O’Reilly, will O’Reilly be the last one to go?
Or, is this just foreshadowing of things to come?
If Fox News is “repositioned” will it become indistinguishable from the rest of the mainstream media?
Let us know what you think is going on over at Fox News in the comments.
I watch my nightly news now at Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) and the Catholic channel (EWTN). They tell the news as it is, good or bad but it is real (not fake).
shame shame that the Murdoch family capitulates to liberal sponsors and let go Bill O’Reilly from Fox. It is shows like his that we tune in to Fox for “Real News” not that bull crap the Liberals and Democrats want us to hear. There are other sponsors they could have gotten in place of those that were pulling out. Those sponsors do not control what or how we feel or think. We want the lists of sponsors that threatened or did pull out. I for one will not participate in any purchases from these sponsors and if this continues I will no longer watch Fox.
TIME TO BOYCOTT ALL THE SPONSORS THAT DROPPED FOX NEWS AS THE RESULT OF THE LIBERALS WHO HAVE TRIED TO GET FOX OFF THE AIR FOR QUIT SOME TIME. FOX SHOULD AIR THE LIST OF SPONSORS THAT WENT AGAINST O REILLY SO ALL OF THE LISTENERS WHO SUPPORTED FOX NEWS FOR STARAGHT HONEST NEWS CAN BOYCOTT THEM. LETS MAKE THE LIST AVAILABLE ON FACE BOOK.
I use to be an avid viewer of FOX News. Now with the liberal sons of, Mr. Rubert Murdoch’s trying to realine the format of FOX, I’m going elswhere for news. Rubert better get back in control of his business. I am 76 and have worked with and in several large companies i.e. TRW, Motorola, IBM, Texas Instr. and so on. Women can go to personnel and wage a sexual complaint against their boss or supervisor for the most insignificant remark like “Oh that’s a very nice dress your waring today”, or “I like the way you’re doing your hair” If your a male your on the carpet before upper mgt. The other thing women like to use to get out of work is PMS. This happens all the time in the manufacturing areas. It’s a giveaway when they come back to work two days later with nice tan.ba
Shame on FOX NEWS for firing Bill O’Reilly! FOX NEWS will really suffer as a result for millions and millions of people looked forward to watching his program every night! No other program will ever take its place! Those two liberal sons had no idea the harm they caused! If so many women complained of his remarks to them…you can bet most of them jumped on the bandwagon in order to get some of the payout! Shame on FOX NEWS!!!
I hope Fox allows us to know the advertisers that told them they were pulling their ads off the Factor. I plan on boycotting them. Same if they threaten do the same for any other shows on Fox. Two can play this game.
Amen, AMEN, me and my friends have felt that Fox was the only conservative channel out there and they were. We can only hope O’Rielly or someone can start or find a network and let the Murdoch boys go suck air
Thanks to the Murdoch’s sons for handling this is a stupid manor…..oh, my bad, they are liberals and soon FOX will be liberal……It’s still stupid!!! They should have rounded up all lawyers possible and said go get the accusers!!
Fox is a fool for letting liberal sponsors run the show SAD
Shepherd Smith is now the big liberal show on Fox News. If you watch the show, boycott his advertisers or call the advertisers like the liberals did to O’Reilly. Better yet, do not watch his show. His ratings will fall. The liberals are now going to target Hannity. Fox was the only station that put both liberals and conservatives on the same program. Example, The Five. That is the way it should be.
please, please post my comment!
O, how i hope you will post my comments! If so, thank you very very much! The only publicly revealed comments by an O’reilly accusor were so rediculous1 1 I quote, “O, hot chocolate”. If a highly successfull man could be fired for a merely flirtatious comment, what is the country coming to ? ? ?I hope and pray Hannity’s speech and demeanor have always been pristine! He is now all we have left to rely upon on Fox! !
So tired of liberals running this country into the ground!!! Why do they think they lost the election??? The American people across this country put Trump in the presidency?? Because of the liberal views of the people on both coasts!!!!! Fox will lose their viewers if they continue culling out the conservatives!!!! The two sons and daughter in law of Murdoch are a plague on the network that will see the end of Fox!!
Bill O’Reilly is such an asset to Fox and I pray to God that Fox News Conservative will survive with all the Professional and Serial EVIL DOERS and SICK MIND. Fox News is the only reliable NEWS AMONG ANY OTHERS.
With the money he will get from Fox, he could create his own show and call it “THE SPIN”.
Its a witch hunt and makes me very uncomfortable that 2 men can have so much power over the news that we are able to receive. Fox is the only conservative network on TV now and if it goes, the conservative crowd will be hard bent to hear real news. Makes me super angry..
