Bill O’Reilly and his top-rated cable news show were targeted by left-wing activists who have long desired to remove his voice and influence from the air after Murdochs have decided Bill O’Reilly’s 21-year run at Fox News will come to an end. O’Reilly and his employers came under intense pressure after an article by The New York Times on April 1 revealed how Fox News and its parent company, 21st Century Fox, had repeatedly stood by him even as he and the company reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him. The agreements totaled about $13 million.
Bill O’Reilly’s lawyer said the embattled Fox News anchor is the target of “far-left organizations” seeking his destruction.
“Bill O’Reilly has been subjected to a brutal campaign of character assassination that is unprecedented in post-McCarthyist America,” Marc E. Kasowitz said in a statement Tuesday.
“This law firm has uncovered evidence that the smear campaign is being orchestrated by far-left organizations bent on destroying O’Reilly for political and financial reasons. The evidence will be put forth shortly and is irrefutable.”
Conservative site conservativefighters.com started petition to bring Bill O’Reilly back to FOX News. The Petition has nearly 50.000 signatures for only 2 days.
Bill O’Reilly literally changed the TV news business forever. Along with Fox News, Bill has reinvented how America gets its news.
Bill has been the highest rated host on cable news for 15 straight years. His astounding numbers even rival and sometimes surpass the network shows like CBS and NBC.
No one has ever done what Bill has done. He has become one of the most recognizable faces in all of the conservative and liberal media.
It’s natural, then, that angry liberals would want to target O’Reilly with smears in order to delegitimize the conservative media to try to convince people on the fence to back their failing liberal agenda.
Bill O’Reilly now needs our help more than ever, invite all you friends to sign the petition. We must collect 100,000 Signatures!
DON’T FORGET TO SHARE THE PETITION WITH YOU FRIENDS ON FACEBOOK AND TWITTER!
