    Touting His New Book, Bill O'Reillly says His Fireing From Fox News Was A Hit Job

    Former Fox Television Commentator Bill O'Reilly being interviewed on the TODAY Show by Matt Lauer claims his firing from Fox News Channel was a political and financial "hit job". O'Reilly was a guest on TODAY to plug his newly published book "Killing England".

    http://deadline.com/2017/09/bill-ore...ob-1202172961/

    O'Reilly further maintains his innocence in regards to the numerous complaints of Sexual Harassment made against him by several former and current staffers.

    Please discuss if you are so inclined.

    I read he and his team of lawyers are preparing to go after all of them.

    Fox News is wanting to be as accepted by the political establishment as the rest of the mainstream media. They'll do what they need to do in order to make that happen.

    Well I can see the accusations being genuine, at the same time I can see a motive for someone to blackmail him with false allegations given his huge net worth, so who's to say?

    Im inclined to believe all the allegations were not lies. If they came from other outlets I would say Ok, but these are his coworkers at foxnews.

    Who set him up at fox ? ailes was already gone

    I think it's appropriate that if a complaint is not immediately lodged by a woman -- say within a week or two of a sexual impropriety by a male colleague or co-worker, she should be penalized legally for making the allegation.

    What do you think?
