Bill O'Reilly, the most popular cable news personality in the country, was dropped by the Fox News Channel today amidst mounting outrage over numerous sexual harassment allegations. 21st Century Fox, Fox News' parent company, said in a statement, "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."

Dozens of advertisers abandoned O'Reilly's signature program, The O'Reilly Factor, after the NY Times revealed that Fox News settled allegations against him from five women for upwards of $13 million. In spite of the pricey settlements, Fox News reportedly renewed O'Reilly's contract; the Wall Street Journal (also owned by 21st Century Fox) wrote, "The recent review of the allegations against Mr. O'Reilly was taken into consideration when the network negotiated a new contract with the anchor, a person familiar with the matter said."

Ultimately, more than 50 advertisers abandoned his show, and various women’s rights groups called for his firing. As recently as yesterday, there were new allegations from women against him (including one African-American Fox News clerical worker who claimed O'Reilly harassed her and called her "hot chocolate"). The growing outcry reportedly led to an internal struggle among the Murdochs, who own Fox. NY Magazine reported, "Sons James and Lachlan have been arguing that O’Reilly needs to go, say these sources, though their father, Rupert, has resisted that outcome."

O'Reilly and his show will be replaced by Tucker Carlson, a man who enjoys bowties and fly fishing in Central Park. (He's also beloved by misogynists and neo-Nazis.)
