Fox News is preparing to axe Bill O'Reilly, host of the wildly popular “O’Reilly Factor,” according to published reports.

O'Reilly's audience remained staunchly loyal to the 67-year-old journalist amid reports that he sexually harassed female anchors and other female employees at Fox.

Former Fox anchorwoman Megyn Kelly, who departed for NBC News after 13 years, claims she left because of O'Reilly's constant harassment.

O'Reilly, who is currently on vacation, vigorously denied the allegations through his counsel.

But according to the New York Times, O'Reilly quietly paid out $13 million in cash settlements to women who accused the divorcee of sexual harassment.

The father-of-2 claimed he paid the settlements to “put to rest any controversies to spare my children.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, a board meeting will be held at 21st Century Fox on Thursday to finalize O'Reilly's exit agreement.

O'Reilly was paid a $20 million annual salary to host The O'Reilly Factor which draws 4 million viewers a night, and is among the highest rated news programs on cable television.

    Fox has known for years that Bill has "sticky fingers" when it comes to touching things that don't belong to him. But, of course, its all about the money and the eyeballs--O'Reilly is one of the network's very biggest draws.

    But its time for Bill to go. He's probably a sex addict/predator, but besides that, his show is not interesting and he's really just a relic.

    It'll be interesting to see how Fox replaces O'Reilly in order to keep those big ad dollars coming.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Interesting that his latest book, titled "Old School", is about family values.

    How ironic.

  • SunRiseBlossom

  • SunRiseBlossom

    They havent pushed him off the cliff yet. He's still trying to hang on by his fingernails... but it looks like its a wrap for Mr. Bill.

  • rayne215

    Bill is leaving with millions. tragic

  • PrettyBrown28

    My sentiments exactly.

  • Scromes1212

    It was time. He is a repeat offender. Plus his time on Fox had ran its course. Same thing happened to Lue Dobbs and Glenn Beck. He will land on his feet but his voice will never be what it was to conservatives from around 2000 til 2010.

  • goat

    Fcuk HO'Reilly

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Sandra, are you applying for the job?

    I am sure they would love to have a self-hating black lesbian to replace O'Reilly and trash black people at least five times a week.

  • Mel

    Shoulda never messed with Maxine chile all this wouldn't have came back up had he not insult her wig. Good for his ass

  • freelancepimp .

    Oh how the mighty has fallen. It's good to know those far left liberal elites re not just using there powers against black men that they disagreed with. Now they are going after those white guys too.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Just like Roger Ailes left Fox last year with a $40 million severance package and landed on Trump's campaign.
    I want to be punished like that.

  • ThisIsWhat40LooksLike

    Vanilla you crazy girl! ?
    I feel like crap today and I needed that chuckle!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    O'Reilly is the typical white male holier than thou hypocrite.

    They believe that their white skin and anatomy make them morally superior.

  • ThisIsWhat40LooksLike

    ???

  • SuperScooper1
  • We Can Do This

    They do and I just can't see how?

  • Scorpio

    I agree he got slick talking about Maxine's hair and now he's on blast!...LOL

  • nick c

    Bill you was so loyal to Fox running around talking about how great they were 24/7. You can never be so blindly loyal to your employer like that anymore, they will always boot your azz if you mess up or make a mistake. Fortunately you have enough side projects to recover.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    *Faints*

  • Mel

    It happens to Bill Cosby after that comedian made a joke about it so Billy Goat ain't no different

  • Mel

    Lmaooo what the hell im done ?????. Maxine put ah hex on his ass ?

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Couldn't happen to a more deserving person. Good riddance.

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    HA!!!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    No problem !!!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Yes she gets her fiber!!!

  • Guess Who

    To spare his children? Did he give a fvck about them when he was beating his wife's azz? ANYWAYS...

  • Guess Who

    Well, he messed up royally and apparently for years they protected him. It's not Feaux News' fault. He brought this shyt on himself. He's been a lowbrow, idiotic, racist, hateful TROLL for YEARS and he's never been reprimanded. They had his back during his most controversial times but I guess enough is enough.

  • Guess Who

    LMFAO!

  • Guess Who

    DAMN!
    Fox News typically does hire blacks who love talking shyt about blacks...
    ..she might stand a chance. IJS.

  • hottlanta

    Dump supports him. I can only imagine the outrage from the public with President Obama said he supports Bill. Gotta give it to Dump he publically said it an didn't try to hide it. He is gonna get paid and will have another job already lined up. Black folks don't get fired like that. If a black man did that nobody BEDDA not give him another job or the company will have hell to pay. Fox is in trouble because they listed the settlements as income. The stockholder's knew because ain't no way a file clerk is making 10 million dollars a year.

  • Guess Who

    I believe it. Never would talk to her..but would grunt like a wild boar. Seems TOTALLY plausible.

  • hottlanta

    Sarah who.

  • Guess Who

    LMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAO.

  • Guess Who

    Lawd Maxine Water's wig done took on a life of its own in this thread....

  • ActuallyReally

    O'Reilly is a lech. He's been sexually harassing women for years. Typical white male behavior. This won't hurt or stop him at all. He'll have a new TV deal or satellite radio show by the end of the year.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Maybe so, but revolving debt looks good on no one. Aint no telling how many suits/debt are up against these folks.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Should have taken his meds & committed to therapy.
    He would still have his gig.

  • Luv Pitties

    This clown won't be able to handle not being in the limelight spewing his ignorance; also I believe he pissed off some of the men behind the curtain and this is their way of showing they're done with him. He'll probably be found dead from a self inflicted gun shot wound.

  • Luv Pitties

    Didn't he also push his wife down the stairs?

  • stacee

    He'll get a job with the Trump administration.

  • SuperScooper1

    If it's someone who dehumanizes people of color and can't reconcile their attraction...The grunts do indeed sound plausible.

  • jazzysmith12

    Well Sandra, one your massas is out of the door and Dump is next.lol

  • Ryan

    "Journalist"? That's like calling Miley Cyrus a "singer". Anyway he'll get a job with the WH or on the radio. Weak-minded right-wingers can't function without being told how to think and who to blame for their miserable lives.

  • reddfoxxy16

    I'll...believe....it....when...I....see...it.....

  • IamAllnatural

    He's fired!

  • dontgetblocked

    I like Bill O'Reilly overall. I just didn't like the way he degraded the black lives matter movement or Trayvon Martin. He was fair to Obama and on most topics. He'll land somewhere new and people will watch because he's entertaining.

  • dontgetblocked

    He already has offers. His viewership is tremendous.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I'm not applying for the job. No one can fill Bill O'Reilly's shoes.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You mean you don't want to harass some pretty white women or spout racist nonsense about black and browns?
