Popular Guesses: Bill O'Reilly and Fox / JBL and WWE / Arsene Wenger and Arsenal FC
Amidst accusations of sexual harassment and abuse of power, Fox News has "parted ways" with their longtime star Bill O'Reilly, 21st Century Fox has announced today in a statement to the press.
“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel,” 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, said in the statement.
O'Reilly departs just two weeks after an investigation by the New York Times revealed Fox had repeatedly reached million dollar settlements with women who had accused the anchorman of sexual harassment and the network of a cover-up.
The O'Reilly Factor star denies the accusations.
O'Reilly's departure is a bitter blow for Fox News as his long running show is the highest rated, highest grossing cable news show. It is the second star departure Fox has faced this year with Megyn Kelly leaving in January.
Thanks to my Fox source for letting me know ahead of time. They may be high up on the corporate scale, but we here at the Gossip Life are incredibly grateful they're not above salacious gossip!
PS: Bill was fired. You know that, right? Don't buy into the mutual decision spin. He was ready to go back on the air and wait for the storm to blow over.
