O’Reilly out at fox, but probably with a big payout

Since Bill just signed a new contract I would bet that Mr. O, will get a nice severance payout.

"It is a staggering amount," said a source personally involved in the exit maneuverings.

Fox is only on the hook for one years’ salary, according to one of the sources. That’s why the payout totals $25 million.

Please someone buy me out. I won’t say a word……

More seriously, I don’t know if O’Reilly is guilty of anything. The public version of the accusations are pretty weak. But in these times it doesn’t take anything for sexual harassment claim. While I’m not a great O’Reilly fan, I watched his show now and then and was given “killing the Rising Sun” as a gift. It turned out to be a very good book. (Martin Dugard is a very good writer).

Every day I watch less and less cable news. There just isn’t much news there. Nearly all opinion and conjecture.
