I am so devastated by the recent events that occurred with O’Reilly that I really am at a loss for words. O’Reilly’s attorney released a statement that included this quote:
Bill O’Reilly has been subjected to a brutal campaign of character assassination that is unprecedented in post-McCarthyist America. This law firm has uncovered evidence that the smear campaign is being orchestrated by far-left organization bent on destroying O’Reilly for political and financial reasons.
That evidence will be put forth shortly and is irrefutable.
O’Reilly also wrote a short statement on his own website:
Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant news network in television. It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today. I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers. I wish only the best for Fox News Channel.
It’s absolutely sick that people on social media are celebrating the destruction of a great, intelligent man’s career.
O’Reilly is also one of my heroes (in my top three with Reagan and Pence) because I first got interested into politics by watching his show. Hopefully O’Reilly can eventually get a job somewhere else. Thanks for all of the great memories Mr. O, I’ll certainly miss you.
