I wonder if he has a non-compete clause in the settlement. Not meaning that he couldn't work for another outlet - that would never be enforced in court, but that he couldn't start his own network.

The reason FOX does so well vs the others is because they are the only thing on TV of size that isn't decidedly Liberal. The country is pretty split between a Liberal and Conservative BIAS.

MSNBC, CNN and all the Net work news from more traditional CBS, ABC and NBC are fighting for that 50% that identifies as LIBERAL and watches cable......a shrinking group of younger potential viewers makes this even tougher for them. An awful lot of young people today don't even bother with cable.

Meanwhile FOX is just about your only choice if you lean to the right........it's certainly just about all you've got on Cable. Then there is the demographic picture of Conservatives who tend to be older and more likely to be a cable or satellite subscriber....

It all adds up to FOX dominating with or without Bill.
Can not disagree more. My main exposure to Fox was O'Reilly and, sometimes the Five. Others are too far right, and consequently, somewhat predictable, re. boring. And I consider myself to be more of a traditionalist rather than right or left.
With O'Reilly gone and the changes at the Five I will no longer tune in to FNC. It will be interesting to see what happens.

Bill didn't let guests blabber on, though -- it was the No Spin zone. He kept bringing them back to the question, instead of letting them sell their agenda.

With so many people cutting the cord, Bill may show up on another media outlet. Sirius? Netflix?

I know Dana Perino is like watching paint dry (nothing against paint).

Its well worth is... Here is a great example of how Graham disembowels Obummer for all his nonsense and lies.

It's hard to imagine someone paying $13 million to settle alleged "discrimination" lawsuits over sexual harassment that doesn't involve touching or asking for sexual favors.

I can understand Fox firing him for being a jerk... I think that's provable in court. But I just don't get the sexual harassment angle. There just HAS to be more to this than has been made public.

Same here. Only time we watched FNC was on the DVR to catch O'Reilly. Now we watch "Diner's, Drive-Ins and Dives," "House Hunters," "Property Brothers" or "Love-it or List-it."

That is my exact viewing habit. Tucker is OK, but I can only take a little bit of the liberal BS spouted out by his guests.

Default The full (alleged) story

http://www.rollingstone.com/politics...leness-w477663

I know this is a liberal source, but the accounting squares with other on-line sources I found.

The meat of the $13 million in past settlements is the $9 - $10 million paid to his former producer in 2004. Her allegations were supposedly backed up with recordings of his obscene phone calls. I don't know why she didn't just hang up on him. She argued that she feared for her future at FOX.

If you intentionally or unintentionally flirted or made a comment to a woman at work...

And she is as going to blow it up and wast a lot of your time and money. But will walk away for 1300 bucks...I bet you'd write the check.

Your $1300 = BillO's $13million

Without OReilly, I turn the station after 5 minutes. Big mistake in judging the American people - AGAIN.
