Emails show O´Reilly lawyers´
last-ditch effort to save his job

Politico, by Joe Pompeo

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 4/21/2017 6:09:28 AM

The day before Bill O´Reilly was cut loose from Fox News after 20 years with the network, his handlers appeared to believe they had at least one more card to pull that might help save his job in the midst of a sexual harassment scandal engulfing the top-rated prime time host.On Tuesday, O´Reilly and his legal team debated whether to share with the leadership of parent company 21st Century Fox an April 13 email from Mary Pat Bonner, a Democratic fundraiser and ally of the liberal watchdog group Media Matters, which had spearheaded what she called an "advertiser education campaign"

This article isn´t so much about O´Reilly´s last ditch effort to save his job, as it is about Media Matters´ all-out war to destroy him with a targeted blitz of advertisers to cancel their ads for his show. This should be a lesson to all other conservative commentators and producers on exactly how the war against them will be conducted from now on.

FTA: “This is not based off of an outrage moment, but rather, it’s responsive to a deep pattern of sexual harassment,”

Bullshiite. If true, where was this outrage and blitz when Bill Clinton was having his bimbo eruptions? Or ANY other Democrat for that matter.

They don´t realize that O´Reilly was harmless.
Tucker Carlson will destroy them. He´s young, whip-smart, and draws blood on every single libiot who comes on his show.
They can´t touch him.

Further proof the MSM and the Dims have nothing to bolster their party... only to try to destroy anyone that is perceived as either powerful or possibly effective at exposing them for what they are. (Flynn, Sessions, Nunes to name a few that come to mind recently)

The notches in the belt are mounting. When are we going to start to fight back? FNC needs O´Reilly more than O´Reilly needs FNC. Im not a huge fan, but I hate liberal groups that get away with these destructive tactics.

I´s a shame O´Reilly should have learned his lesson from the first scandal. Better to shut it down now because the media would continue picking and picking. Hard to defend. My fear is the two liberal sons of FOX Rupert Murdoch Heckle & Jeckle are going to morph FOX into another liberal TV Station. Hannity watch your back.

In my opinion, If you´re a high profile conservative you best be squeaky clean. The unethical left will always be going through your garbage. They, of course, ignore the nastiness of their own people. Their world is near the bottom rung of decency.

I like how you called the Murdoch brothers Heckle and Jeckle #5. Too me those two morons are like Yakko and Wakko from the old Animaniacs cartoon. They will definitely try to steer Fox News into becoming more like CNN. As for O´Reilly it is truly a shame when something like messing with the women that work for you with you or are in the same building as you. You should´ve had more self control than that. We all know that the rabid leftist dirt bags will stop at nothing to destroy FNC, talk radio and websites like Lucianne.com. Why give them ammo. This is another reason why I like VP Pence as he will not be in the company of a woman who isn´t his wife without someone else present. That may be a little old fashioned thinking to the "enlightened crowd" i.e. the libtards but I can attest to his point. At my job we get yearly sexual harassment training. Maybe other workplaces should follow suit.

Last night I realized what a void has been created with OReilly´s exit. I turned on FOX as usual and could listen to the mindless Perrino for about 2 minutes, tops. "The Factor" logo sans O´Reilly´s name underscored that not only is he gone, but his No-Spin Zone vanished as well. {{{ POOF! }}} Just like that, done in by a targeted smear campaign of old news, suddenly revived. I felt isolated.
I could not find news about the Paris attack on ANY of the other so-called news channels. I KNOW O´Reilly would´ve mentioned it. Anderson Cooper was blathering on about Trump´s inability to keep his promises. And that idiot on MSNBC whose claim to fame is that his father COULD be Frank Sinatra was carrying on about how there MUST be a Chafetz scandal about to break.
There´s a huge danger here and it has nothing to do with whether or not you liked O´Reilly. This was an orchestrated campaign to remove him by reviving harassment stories from 6-11 YEARS ago. They resurfaced NOW for a reason. Rush, Hannity, Levin, Savage and even Tucker Carlson will be next. We will have no place to go, and that is the point of it all. Until WE learn to organize, until we learn to aggressively participate in "advertiser education campaigns" we will continue to enable the radical left. They will take down what little network we have and spoon feed us only the news THEY determine we should know. This is scary stuff.

Whether it was an orchestrated campaign by Media Matters to bring him down or not, O´Reilly gave them the fuel for the fire. There´s a saying out there, "I don´t play where I work, I don´t work where I play". ´ guess he never heard that. Yes, the temptations are certainly present with all the hot Fox babes but O´Reilly should have restrained himself. To pursue women at work, at such a controversial news outlet, known to be under assault by socialists, is akin to praising or drinking Pepsi at Coke, praising or drinking Coke at Pepsi, meeting with mistresses at lunch while working at CIA, etc. This could be called self inflicted wounds. One question, Bill, did you know Lisa Bloom was Gloria Allred´s daughter?! Big mistake to hit on her, that´s a landmine and you stepped on it.

BOR is 67. Doubt he had that much gas left in the tank. Hope he goes to work for CNN and replaces The Lemon Lemon. I´m upset with Fox for dropping Red Eye. Now the only thing I watch on that network is the Greg Gutfield show. Can´t watch The Five however as long as Beckel is there.

I posted this a few days ago, but I think it needs to be posted again. And that is there is another, fairly new (started in 2013) conservative network in place. It´s the One American News Network, known as OANN of just OAN. I have it one my cable system and it´s pretty good. It was founded by Herring Networks, Inc. whose CEO is Robert Herring. And it used to own the Washington Times. On that part, I don´t know if they still do. Currently, it´s only on a few cable systems. I get it thru AT&T Uverse. And you can reach it at www.oann.com. You should give it a try.

I don´t care to debate "BJC did it why can´t BOR?" I held BOR to a higher standard but then I´ve always been naive.

BOR is smart enough to know better. It´s not the 1950´s any more. Surely he´s not naive, too.

#15 reportedly Ailes required female journalist to wear low necked, short hemmed dresses. It was obvious the majority started wearing higher necklines and longer hemmed dresses when he was gone. I for one believe the allegations against him. I questioned all along how Megyn Kelly skyrocketed to the top with ability to screech and wear high dollar call girl clothes.

Regarding BOR in the emails in this article he doesn´t deny the allegations but perhaps that wasn´t germaine. Yes, it was a "run Bill out of town campaign" but that doesn´t change the fact he was guilty. You don´t pay hush money when innocent.

As conservatives, right or wrong, we claim the moral high ground. It is impossible to take anyone serious knowing they paid a woman to keep quiet not just about casual flirtation but sexual deviant behavior over the telephone. There are women will to put up with that for pay. He should have utilized their services anonymously not for free a subordinate he could make or break in their career.

Maybe FOX, Ailes and BOR needed to be called to heel.

Orchids and Kudos to Poster #20. We should be able to pay attention to the news even if the reader isn´t exposing 10" of cleavage.

Also thanks to Poster #17 for the reminder of OANN - I watch very little tv news (only what I can get online) but I like what I´ve seen of One America.

BOR was brought down via bis growing extreme arrogance just like M. Kelly.
Kelly seemed to remodel herself into the ultra female for the first primary debate and win a position in the for certain Hillary white house. Meanwhile BOR decided to treat DJT as a bumbling outsider he could reshape into a star thereby becoming the force behind the throne.
When both failed it was a war to see which one would control the top spot.
Now both are gone.
Will Fox survive --who cares?
A family member lived by the word of BOR and sneers at the internet news that I prefer. Read it and form your own concepts-- who needs talking egos to tell you what is happening!

Pretty good article on what really happened:

News brings word that the SJW’s have bagged their biggest trophy to date. Bill O’Reilly is the most popular cable news talker in the business and he was just fired for making the girls cry. It is all part of what is looking like a well orchestrated effort to break Fox News on the wheel of political correctness. The screeching harpies knocked out Roger Ailes and now they have taken out the top star, all via the same method – powerskirts claiming to have been done wrong by the knuckle-dragging misogynists running the network.

The claim will be that the advertisers demanded Fox fire O’Reilly, but that is complete nonsense. Cable channels, like Fox News, exist on subscription revenues, not advertising dollars.FNC gets $1.50 from every cable home each month. That’s roughly $1.8 billion a year whether people watch or not. Their ad revenue is less than a third of that number. In the case of ESPN, for example, ad revenue is around one billion, and they have an audience about ten times the size of a cable news operation, even Fox News.


Goes on to say that this would dent Fox’s bottomline, but would not be compelling enough to cause them to drop an O’Reilly. No, Rupert was never a conservative and his kids are what this writer calls “prog loonies”. Good read on “The Demise of Fox News”.

Like poster #9 I too feel a void without the O´Reilly show. Of late, I found he was too in love with himself and of course, there were times I vehemently disagreed with him. Certainly I didn´t like when it appeared he was going light on Obama or Hillary in an attempt to get them on his show.

But, for 20 years we watched him and noted the many issues that other FOX programs and certainly other channels did not pick up and he did. We will miss that very much.

The Murdoch boys are libs, pure and simple. They are fashioning FOX into CNN and I believe that Hannity will be their next target. I hear that one of their wives works for the Clinton Global Initiative. If that´s true then we can really understand why the NY Times resurrected and featured these accusations against O´Reilly and also why Media Matters pursued advertisers as viciously as they did.

You may hate O´Reilly, but this orchestrated assassination will not end with him. Hannity, Levin and yes even Tucker, will be in their cross hairs.

Beck tried to start his own network but then got sidetracked. We need a real, gutsy and focused network that at least will attempt to present the other side of the Democrat media´s indoctrination. Rush, are you listening? Time to start a network with your pal, Ailes.

As a conservative gentleman I was always annoyed at the smarmy way OReilly interviewed women particularly Lis Weal ( or whatever her name is). Yes he may have taken on the left wing media but he was no role model.

Comey Tried to Shield the F.B.I. From Politics.

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed

Before there was Trump, there was O’Reilly’s populism infused with a New York sensibility. Dear Reader (I said “reader.” This will not be the venue for Caitlyn Jenner’s nude debut.), Bill O’Reilly is leaving Fox, and I can’t say I’ll miss him. I don’t mean that to sound too harsh (not that he much cared about sounding too harsh). The truth is I almost never watched his show, unless it was on someplace where I didn’t have control of the remote. That’s not quite the slight it may seem to be either.

A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,

The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed

The September 2016 article in Politico championing Hillary Clinton’s use of "data analytics" now looks—how shall we put it?—rather premature. Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables. "Clintonites saw it as their secret weapon in building an insurmountable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders," Politico reported. And come the general election the Clintonistas were downright giddy about the edge Big Data

This week’s edition of Time Magazine named former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to its list of the 100 Most Influential People. The list breaks down the chosen 100 into five categories: Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Titans, and Icons. Kaepernick appears in the Icons group. In the Time Magazine profile, former SF 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh praised the controversial quarterback’s protest last year of the Star Spangled Banner, “when he boldly and courageously confronted perceived inequalities in our social-justice system by refusing to stand for the national anthem.” Harbaugh made no mention of Kaepernick’s penchant for wearing socks denigrating law

Former President Barack Obama may not be making an endorsement in France´s upcoming presidential election, but his former deputy national security adviser is warning that a win for right-wing leader Marine Le Pen would be "devastating." "A Le Pen victory would be devastating to any mainstream definition of US interests and values since WWII," Ben Rhodes said in a tweet Saturday. (Tweet) Rhodes´ warning is quite a bit more drastic than the measured statement former President Barack Obama´s spokesman put out last week about his conversation with another French candidate, Emmanuel Macron. While Obama did not endorse Macron, spokesman Kevin

The Trump administration put nine of the country’s top sanctuary cities on notice Friday that they could soon have to give up some federal funds unless they can prove they are no longer thwarting Homeland Security’s efforts to deport illegal immigrants. The entire state of California is being targeted, as are the cities of New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Las Vegas, New Orleans and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Cook County in Illinois and Miami-Dade County in Florida round out the list. In letters to each of the nine jurisdictions the Justice Department said they signed documents last year, when they applied for Byrne

Fox News may have sent former CEO Roger Ailes packing in July of last year, but that has not slowed down the female employees at the network who have come forward alleging that they were sexually harassed by the disgraced executive. Another woman´s name was added to that list on Sunday, when CNN host Alisyn Camerota decided to break her silence and speak out, claiming that she too was one of Ailes´ victims. ´Yes, Roger Ailes did sexually harass me,´ Camerota announced during an appearance in ´Reliable Sources.´ Camerota, 50, worked at Fox News for 16 years before moving over
