    Of course I'm assuming any of these allegations are true.
    They let the little head do the thinking for them.
    The list of men who have let the little head do their thinking for them is long and many notable people are on it.

    MSNBC is having a field day tonight with the demise of O'Reilly.

    On another note, Dana Perino is easy on the eyes. I wouldn't mind seeing her take the 8pm slot. With her and Martha before her at 7pm, the ending to my weekdays would be just wonderful!

    No way. It's certainly true or Fox would never cut their top dog loose.

    O'Reilly fascinates me now. Why do people do that, shoot themselves and engage in self-destruction? Do they really get so wrapped around themselves that they think they're untouchable?

    I will miss his show - he was the only one of the three (four if you count Megyn Kelly) prime time talking heads that was interesting and intelligent.

    I'm sure, but O'Reilly did that to himself. He's the Aaron Hernandez of political talk show hosts. I'm super disappointed.

    Yay! I love The Five and am glad to see Eric Bolling have his own show. We usually had to catch O'Reilly the second time around because we don't think about TV until later. Now I can miss Tucker and see The Five.

    while I generally agree in the principle of money and ratings ....

    No evidence of the smear campaign was offered directly in the statement, but, oddly, conservative media platform TheBlaze founder Glenn Beck may have provided some proof Wednesday morning via Twitter. Beck posted an email from the Bonner Group, a Left-wing fundraising activist group that works under Media Matters For America.

    "The Bonner group/A Super PAC and fundraiser for Hillary & DNC. The Campaign against Bill OReily [sic] is orchestrated by [Media Matters] & [Boner Group]," Beck caption the email, adding a #smearcampaign hashtag.

    "Due to our advertiser education campaign, over 80 advertisers have currently dropped O'Reilly's show and the momentum continues to build," boasts the Left-wing group. "We are currently at a critical juncture in this campaign I hope you can join Media Matters President Angelo Carusone to hear about the success of the campaign so far, and our plans moving forward."

    Bonner then offers an invitation for an upcoming group phone call seemingly concerning the campaign against O'Reilly.

    Of course, this is not evidence that O'Reilly is innocent and the claims are bunk, but it does show a coordinated effort from the Left to oust O'Reilly for his political views.

    Me too. People were *AFRAID* of O'Reilly. It was a liberal rite of passage to claim you'd been on O'Reilly.
    Heck, I'M a little afraid of him.

    No one else I know has that, although Tucker Carlson, with his baby face and bow ties is coming close.

    Oh, come on. FOX is going to abandon their #1 star because of un-founded allegations? Or, they're getting out in front of something they knew was gonna blow up sooner or later?
