Much like Megyn Kelly and Greta moving from FNC to MSNBC, this is yet another big blow to the network for sure.

I was going to put this in the funny image thread, but I might as well save myself a walk:

It does not indicate any higher standards from fox news.

The difference is keeping him can lead to people boycotting FNC. Lower rating, less money, etc, etc. You can't do the same with the US government.

Rest assured if they could keep this piece of crap there without any fear of repercussions, they would.

So the argument is that the standards aren't higher, but that the level of the public accountability is stricter?

The "L" stands for "Value".

 

Nobody can hear the sarcasm in your voice when you type. Which is why they invented teal.

Maybe the standards and public accountability are the same, but the FOX executives kept hearing Bill's name and thinking "What do you mean, "Oh really!"? Take this more seriously!".

Imagine how poorly some regular people would do their job if they knew they could only be readily replaced once every four years and only by one other candidate.

They are taking it more seriously, he's getting +$20 million in his severance package.

says a lot for his salary.

 

I read that his contract's severance was equivalent to 1 year of salary.

 

He will be fine, he makes plenty off of books anyway, would be interesting to see if his future sales do as well without a show to plug his new books.

 

If I had his money, I would totally retire at 69 and just enjoy the rest of my life.

He'll either go to talk radio to continue spewing his bullshit or he'll make like Glen Beck and start his own news channel.

A whole lot of this, really.

 

It's worth noting that Fox didn't give a damn until they started losing money from advertisers pulling their ads from O'Reilly's segment.


It matters not how strait the gate, how charged with punishments the scroll. I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.

Maybe we should make a universal rule that teal is now the sarcasm colour.
