NOTE TO FOX “NEWS” SUITS
We saved you the trouble of writing a news release. You can change or add to it.
In light of the serious allegations against Bill O’Reilly, we at Fox News Channel and O’Reilly decided it would be in the best interest of both parties to part ways. O’Reilly believes the on-going legal battles facing him and Fox News would be a distraction to the network and his staff. So we accept his decision to resign. We recently renewed his contract to continue his show on our network. We will honor his contract by paying his salary in full. O’Reilly thanks Fox News, his colleagues, staff and viewers for the success of “The O’Reilly Factor.” We wish O’Reilly success in the future.
Except for that one time! Damn Steve Doocy’s butt cheeks!!!
