When FOX News terminated Bill O'Reilly it surprised a lot of people as Bill had the top rated News broadcast program on FOX and any of any network but after an internal FOX investigation it was deemed best to terminate their relationship with O'Reilly who has been attempting to make a self made comeback using the Internet, Podcast, and his own subscription service.
I used to watch Bill and I enjoyed "The Factor" but even though Bill is screaming like a Pig now claiming it was a mistake for him to settle and that he's innocent of all charges I just can't believe that. If Bill had settled for some measly amount or an amount to offset what sure litigation would have cost him might have made his case stronger but he settled for 32 Million dollars. I don't care what the charges are you don't settle for 32 Million Dollars unless there is real evidence there and you stand a real chance of losing that much or more.
I liked Bill but I think he's guilty as Harvey Weinstein and he needs to accept that his behavior has cost him his platform and his job. I can't watch Bill any more and see a man that I truly believe is innocent of all charges because I believe he has done what he's accused of doing. If someone wants to hire Bill and if he can garner advertisers then good for him but if he's guilty, which I believe he is, then he should retire gracefully and be satisfied that he's not going to jail where he may should be depending on what he is accused of.
In Bill's case I don't think he's accused of rape but I do think he was trying to use his position, at FOX ,to take advantage of some of his coworkers and convince them into a consensual relationship but I believe what Bill did wrong was that got a woman that refused his forward advances and then he got her fired for refusing them. I don't know if that's enough to make a person go to jail but it should be enough to cause him to lose his job, which he now has done. I, even though I liked Bill, do not believe he should be reinstated and believe he's guilty as charged. You just don't make a settlement of that value , 32 Million Dollars, unless there is some real evidence there to back up the charges.
