Fox News executives caved to liberal pressure and fired Bill O’Reilly and then did the same to Eric Bolling.
And overreaction to a series of liberal hit pieces if ever there was.
Which was not surprising because Rupert Murdoch’s sons took over the network and folks they aren’t conservative.
In fact, they are well known to be pretty liberal.
Bill weighed his options carefully so as not to rush his comeback and now that it appears certain, you can bet Rupert’s liberal sons are freaking.
From Page Six:
Bill O’Reilly is in talks to head back to cable news in his old 8 p.m. slot, but this time at Newsmax TV, sources exclusively tell Page Six.
Newsmax is also chasing other former Fox News talent — Greta Van Susteren and Eric Bolling have been approached to join as hosts of hourlong shows in prime time.
An insider told Page Six, “The deals are not done yet, but talks are in the advanced stages, certainly with O’Reilly. The thinking is, following a 6 p.m. news show, Greta would anchor the 7 p.m. hour, O’Reilly would be back at 8 p.m., and Bolling could smoothly continue on at 9 p.m. Spicer and his cohorts would go on at 10 p.m., with the later slot allowing the show to be looser. But the deals are not yet signed and sealed.”
The O’Reilly talks progressed as veteran news exec Michael Clemente, Fox News’ former executive vice president of news, joined Newsmax Broadcasting as CEO in April.
Newsmax Media CEO Christopher Ruddy — a close friend of President Trump’s — has said his goal is to bill Newsmax TV as “a kinder, gentler” version of Fox News.
That is a strong lineup – Greta, Eric Bolling and Bill O’Reilly – Fox News favorites…
MSNBC and CNN don’t frighten Fox executives because they get terrible ratings.
Bill, Greta, and Eric?
Good luck with that Fox.
