Viewership of 'O'Reilly Factor' drops without Bill O'Reilly

A well-placed source said Tuesday afternoon that representatives for Fox and O'Reilly have begun talking about an exit.

If the rumors of O'Reilly's departure hold true, it may have been fueled by the Murdochs' $14 billion takeover plans of Sky, a European media company, where a media regulator was assigned to determine whether the Murdochs were "fit and proper" to stake their claim.

Bill O'Reilly's fate at Fox (FOXA) may be in jeopardy according to a multiple reports.

Independent Journal Review reported that O'Reilly's show was circling the drain because of various sexual harassment claims, but Fox News told IJR that O'Reilly would be back on set on April 24 after his pre-planned vacation.

But a person familiar with the matter who was not authorized to discuss it publicly confirmed that O'Reilly's status will be discussed at a previously scheduled board meeting of 21st Century Fox.

A NY court is being asked to unseal details about Bill O'Reilly's contentious 2011 divorce and multi-million dollar legal feud with his ex-wife, which the cable news host has been battling to keep from the public.

Andrea Tantaros, former Fox News host, filed a lawsuit against O'Reilly and former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes for alleged sexual harassment, in summer a year ago.

Kings XI demolish Royal Challengers by 8 wickets in IPL
For the home side, Aaron returned with figures of 2/21 while Axar Patel and Sandeep Sharma took one wicket apiece. The bowlers of Punjab like Sandeep, Mohit, Swapnil, and Axar didn't allow the opposition to go past the 165 runs.

Less than a year ago, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Roger Ailes was let go after a number of women charged him with sexual harassment and other similar charges. "What I hear inside Fox News, the word is they do not want to be told what to do by The New York Times".

A month later, O'Reilly added the Syracuse Post-Standard to his boycott list, after an editorial in the paper ran a quiz that referenced O'Reilly's sexual harassment settlement.

All of this is a reaction to a New York Times story about the settlement payments that O'Reilly, Fox and 21st Century Fox paid to women who accused O'Reilly of sexual harassment and verbal abuse.

"Fox News has a problem with sexual assault - and it's bigger than just Bill O'Reilly. He wouldn't speak to her, other than to say things like, 'Mmm Hmm, ' make grunting noises like an animal, she alleges, leering at her, looking at her cleavage and her legs, and he would call her 'hot chocolate, ' which she found to be very offensive". The network dropped Beck because we hit Fox News where it hurts - Rupert Murdoch's bank account - by pressuring hundreds of advertisers to pull their sponsorship of Beck's show.

Public advocate Letitia James led a demonstration of 50 protesters outside the network's offices Tuesday demanding the television host's dismissal.

Bloom announced via Twitter that the woman called the Fox News hotline for sexual complaints Tuesday with her allegations.
