He's been getting away with this for over 15 years and the only reason Fox fired him was because his advertisers pulled the plug.

It's not personal it's business. They don't care about his actual behavior. They've been renewing his contract up until now fully knowing he's a sleaze

He's probably a total square, not a lecherous sleaze.

Hannity has always struck me as a guy who just says whatever he needs to to make money. O'Reilly seemed more like the type who actually believed his own shit was made of fairies. They're both disgusting though. I'm sure Hannity fucked a few interns. Probably just pays off lawsuits better than bill did.

People I follow who've actually spent some time talking to Hannity say that the guy is for real a dead serious believer in the End Times, specifically Sam Seder of the Majority Report. Hannity will just shamelessly toe the party line with no input from himself, but the guy is more authentic in at least some regards.

The beginning of the end for Fox News. They won't even be relevant for much longer going at their current clip.

Anyway, I'm probably going to get flamed a bunch for saying this, but I like that Tucker Carlson is the rising star on Fox News. I watched Tucker years ago when he was on MSNBC and I thought he provided a good conservative counter-weight to the cable network. Tucker and Willie Giest also had some awesome segments.

Granted, I haven't watched Tucker in recent years and he could have very well became a shill of the Fox News crowd, but he's nothing like the Republican lapdogs like Hannity and others. I thought Tucker's interview with Trump a few weeks ago was surprisingly solid with some pretty direct questions, considering it was Fox. So my hope is Tucker can very slowly pull Fox back into reality where it's still a conservative channel, but not a propagandist channel. But I won't hold my breath.

Go watch the recent clip where he shouts climate change denial over Bill Nye and get back to us about how he's not like the others. And then go watch that 15 year old video of Jon Stewart getting him fired from Crossfire for being an utter tit.

Didn't Fox even pay part of the settlements? That they did this "after reviewing the allegations" is such bullshit

Mike Huckabee on the new and improved Factor...

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/poli...icle-1.3078690

Hours after Bill O'Reilly was fired amid swirling sexual harassment accusations, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee went on the longtime Fox News anchor's old show and made an off-color analogy about not being able to "kiss a woman leaning away from you."

Of course a scumbag like Huckabee would say some scumbag thing like that. How do people watch this pablum. I mean, it's fucking inhuman. Cable news and Fox News in particular is the root cause of a lot of problems in the US, it's beyond garbage.

Yeah. I have a feeling some shit is going to come out about O'Reilly soon, like a more detailed account of some of these cases. Fox tossed him under the bus way more than I thought they would.

They absolutely are. Yet it just feels like another thing that is inevitable that we can do nothing about.

Problem is Hannity at least practices what he preaches, he's also a racist asshole blowhard but he's also an ultra-devout Christian.

Manliness is positively correlated with wit. The fine print on the steroids vials spell this out very clearly.

NYT and WP stating the same. Maximum of up to $25m severance(1 yr. salary). Awful that enough fuckwits in the world opened wide to be fed his garbage that led to such an insane salary.

Oh and for comparison. NYT states that 21st Century Fox has paid $85m in sexual harrassment allegations at this point. Upwards of $65m for severances. Insane.

Reading stories online that there is a strong internal push to change the direction of fox news away from the ultra conservative mouth piece it currently is, but that seems like it would be a monumental task that would face lots of opposition from other sources internally. Is there any truth to this?

I saw that. First she says the women should have just found another job, and then basically confirms that she was harassed herself and only left because her contract wasn't renewed.
