If any of you are feeling sorry for Bill O'Reilly...don't. First of all, the guy has racked up hundreds of millions in his nearly twenty year run. Secondly, I guarantee you he'll get a slot on another cable network if he chooses. The media outlets are no less "corporate whore" than Exxon or IBM....they will hire anyone who they believe will boost their ratings.
Let me be a bit prophetic here. O'Reilly, if he doesn't retire, will sign a multi-million dollar deal with one of those mega radio companies who either own, or are affiliated with 500 radio stations across the nation. Then he and Limbaugh can fight it out for whose the biggest fish in the pond.
Then, following a die-down in the din of liberal outrageousness, some cable company will sign old Bill to a rich contract....and he'll haul in millions of viewers and viewer dollars for the corporate whores who sponsor him.
Incidentally, if you've ever labored under the illusion that corporations have either heart, or ethics, you'd be horribly wrong. Any one of them would contract out a hit on their mothers if it meant an extra 1 percent of profit margin.
I'm almost sure that the only loser in the Fox-O'Reilly matter will be Fox News. Not many conservative viewers have left O'Reilly, despite the massive assault on his character, and the long line of females who cried sexism. Slick Willie is no less popular for dropping his zipper in the Oval Office and you have to realize we just elected a guy who harbored an urge for "pussy grabbing", so don't get caught up in the morality of this thing, kiddies.
So, if you've been thinking of setting up a Go Fund Me page for Mr. O'Reilly, I urge instead that you send any money you can spare to this "Modest Scribbler". In return I promise to keep my groping to the minimum.
