BREAKING: Bill O’Reilly May Soon Be Out At Fox News

Good news for all who are sick and tired of the Chief Blowhard on Fox News, Bill O’Reilly: He may be on his way out, and it could happen as soon as next year.

O’Reilly’s show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” is currently the top-rated show on cable news, and has been for the past ten years, proving that there truly is no accounting for taste among the brainless zombies who watch Fox News religiously.

In an interview with AdWeek magazine, O’Reilly, who is now 66, said he’s not sure he wants to continue working. He was directly asked:

“How much longer do you want to do a nightly TV show?”

O’Reilly replied:

“I don’t know. I go day to day. I don’t want to work this hard much longer. I know that. Because I work hard. I earn my money.”

O’Reilly’s contract is up for renewal in late 2017. He reportedly makes $15 million a year in his current position with Fox News.

In the interview with AdWeek, O’Reilly couldn’t resist tooting his own horn when it came to his ratings:

“But the shocking thing to me is nobody beats me. These young gunslingers, they should be kind of beating me — but they’re not.”

Should O’Reilly leave, Fox News will have to decide who they get to replace him. Would they move up Megyn Kelly’s show into the 8 p.m. timeslot? Or would another host be brought in and attempt to build on O’Reilly’s ratings?

One thing is certain: If O’Reilly does retire from Fox, the airwaves will be filled with a great deal less bullshit.

Rob Reiner Blasts The Media For Coddling Trump, And It’s ON POINT (Video)

Appearing on the MSNBC show “Morning Joe” earlier today, director Rob Reiner lit into MSNBC, along with the hosts of “Morning Joe,” Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, for their complicity in helping allow Trump’s rise to power:

“The words that have been flung out from his mouth are insane. If he was not a celebrity, if Donald Trump was not a celebrity, the words that come out of his mouth, you’d see a guy in a park. A lunatic in a park on a soap box, and you’d walk right by him.”

Reiner also said that moderators of debates must be more forceful and hold Trump accountable for the hateful things he says:

“What we have to care about is: what does this man say?”

Scarborough weakly tried to defend his network by claiming:

“Which we do.”

But Reiner wasn’t buying it for a moment, telling Scarborough:

“He’s not pinned down. I want to hear how he’s going to deport twelve million people.”

Apparently the hosts got their feelings hurt, and they turned defensive, which is often the fallback position for those who know they are guilty and have been caught. Scarborough whined:

“I would bet you your proceeds from your next twenty films that I could find you any question that you bring up. About the wall, which Mika tried to nail him down on, the Muslim ban — we gave Bob Woodward twenty minutes!”

Once more Reiner dismissed Scarborough’s defense of himself and it became clear that Brzezinski was on the verge of having a hissy fit. She did not disappoint, cuttingly telling Reiner:

“You act like you’ve got some special sauce! Maybe I should stick my heel down [Trump’s] throat and tell him he’s not answering my question. Would that make you feel good? What planet am I on?”

Face it Mika: You’re a lightweight hack pretending to have some credibility, but you lost whatever traces you had months ago when you began fawning all over Trump. And as for Scarborough, he’s a GOP sycophant who wets himself anytime a Republican gives him a compliment. Both of them are so in the bag for Trump it’s not even funny.

Bill O’Reilly Says There Is Only One Person Trump Should Consider As Veep (Video)

Bill O’Reilly has this whole 2016 election deal all figured out. On his show last night, discussing the GOP race with former Bush press secretary Dana Perino, O’Reilly said he’s now convinced Trump will win the delegates he needs to secure a first ballot victory at the Republican convention in July. Now all that’s left to decide is who will run with him as his Vice President. According to O’Reilly, there is only one person Trump should consider if he wants to beat Hillary Clinton in the general election: New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez.

Perino put some other names on the table, including Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, but O’Reilly would hear none of it, making you wonder why he even bothered to ask for her opinion. O’Reilly declared:

“There is only one choice if he wants to win the White House, only one person. That is the only choice — with all due respect — if Mr. Trump wants to be President. [Martinez] cuts across all the ethnic boundaries. She’s very bright. She is a Republican conservative.”


Martinez seems like an odd choice when you consider that earlier this week Governor Martinez harshly criticized Trump for his inflammatory language on the issue of immigration. Does that sound like someone who would even consider running with a xenophobic asshat like Trump? Hardly.

The Washington Post reported that Martinez was speaking at an event held at GOP megadonor David Koch’s house:

“She told the crowd of about 60 wealthy GOP backers that, as a Latina, she was offended by Trump’s language about immigrants. Noting her years working as a prosecutor on the Mexican border and now as a border-state governor, Martinez said Trump’s plan to build a wall and force Mexico to pay for it was unrealistic and irresponsible, according to multiple people in attendance.”

As usual, Bill O’Reilly knows as much about real world political strategy as he does about nuclear physics, and once again he has proven that he’s a complete and total idiot.

Bill O’Reilly REFUSES To Accept Fox’s Own Poll Showing Sanders Beating All Republicans (Video)

As this campaign has developed over the past few months, hundreds of polls have been conducted and released, and with the sudden rise of Donald Trump, the vast majority of them have shown the Democratic nominee — whoever that winds up being — beating Trump in a head-to-head matchup. Other polls show the same thing if Texas Senator Ted Cruz happens to win the GOP bid for the White House. Only John Kasich manages to fare better among the Republicans.

On the Democratic side, most polls have indicated that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would do well against the Republican nominee, but not as well as Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. Sanders consistently beats whoever wins the GOP nomination by double digits. The website 270towin.com breaks down the numbers into Electoral College votes, and it also indicates that Sanders would perform in a winning fashion against whoever the Republicans manage to select at their July convention in Cleveland.

Recently, a poll conducted by Fox News was released showing yet again that Sanders would win a general election no matter the GOP contender he faces. The Fox poll showed Sanders beating Ohio Governor John Kasich by 4 points, Ted Cruz by 12 points, and front-runner Donald Trump by a whopping 14 points. Landslides are made of such numbers.

But despite the numbers, and despite the fact that they came from Fox News, Fox host Bill O’Reilly said last night on “The O’Reilly Factor” the he isn’t buying that Sanders would win in such a scenario:

“I don’t believe it. And I have to say, with all due respect––the Fox News poll has been good––I don’t believe this. I just don’t.”

While O’Reilly may not believe what appears in black and white — and has been repeated dozens of times in numerous polls — the facts remain. It appears O’Reilly and others at Fox simply cannot stomach the notion of a man who calls himself a Democratic socialist winning the highest office in the land. It does not comport with their own view of the nation and the American electorate. But times change, and so do voters.

Here’s O’Reilly discussing the Fox poll last night on his show:

WATCH: Ted Cruz Smacks Down Bill O’Reilly For Constantly Defending Trump

The GOP is in quite a quandary. They have a front-runner for the 2016 nomination whom they realize will lose by a historic, overwhelming margin should be the eventual nominee, a Texas Senator no one can tolerate because he’s such a massive douchebag, and a Governor from Ohio who is far behind in the delegate count. And now their Presidential candidates are aiming their fire on Fox News.

Last night on “The O’Reilly Factor,” Ted Cruz took Bill O’Reilly to task for always pitching softballs to Donald Trump during interviews. Cruz began with an oft-repeated charge he has used against Trump on numerous occasions: That the Donald has, over the years, donated thousands of dollars in campaign contributions to Democrats. O’Reilly rose to Trump’s defense, telling Cruz Trump didn’t “make those as a politician.”

Cruz responded to O’Reilly by noting that Trump didn’t have to contribute to Hillary Clinton, who may well wind up being the Democratic nominee. Again, O’Reilly tried to play defense attorney for Trump, saying:

“You know how they play the game.”

But, Cruz told O’Reilly, such campaign contributions make Trump a part of the corrupt campaign finance system he loves to say he is no part of. This seemed to get O’Reilly’s goat big time, and he fired back that he’s “not buying it.”

That was when Cruz perfectly destroyed O’Reilly with this one line:

“I know, you defend him a lot, Bill!”

Make no mistake, both Cruz and Trump are dillholes who would destroy this country in more ways than we can possibly count. But for O’Reilly or anyone at Fox News to deny they had a hand in the rise of Donald Trump is disingenuous at best, and blatant, unpardonable hypocrisy at worst. They created the monster and now they want to disown him. How convenient!
