Following a steady stream of sexual harassment lawsuits, Fox News revealed Wednesday that Bill O’Reilly would not be returning to “The O’Reilly Factor” after his vacation ends later this month.

Due to his longstanding reputation as the king of cable news, the bombshell announcement has left loyal viewers infuriated. O’Reilly ‘Factor’ fans are even “threatening to boycott Fox News as a form of protest,” announced Young Turks guest commentator Hannah Cranston on Thursday.

Fans have now “taken their concerns to Facebook [though] Fox News’ Facebook hasn’t actually addressed the issue yet,” Cranston noted, before reading some of her favorites.

“Sorry, but as a [woman], I know far [too] well what the thought of dollars does to some and face it, men with cash and position will get hit, so get the facts, admit [you’re] wrong, take him back, or sink into the sh*thole CNN is in. Y’all deserve each other,” one respondent advised.

“I wonder if [she] really thought she is pro-women, or is she like, no, women are terrible, I know because as a woman I know there’s a lot of money-grubbing people out there,” “Young Turks” host Cenk Uygur wondered in response.

He connected the sentiment with that of many women he’s interviewed on the campaign trail who were vehemently opposed to Hillary Clinton for one specific reason.

“There were women saying, we can’t have a woman president, that is dangerous,” Uygur pointed out. Therefore, the woman who posted on Facebook “might either be like, ‘yea, that’s awesome, men are better than us’ or she might actually think that she is a champion of women and other women are just looking for cash.”

13 Responses to Diehard O’Reilly Fans Are Boycotting Fox News For Letting The Embattled Host Go

  1. To all our FOX friends, look at this as a win-win situation.

    Those of you who are rabid and mentally inert fans of FOX, you will find a joyful release from the deadening influences of FOX-on-the-Brain, and will discover the thrill and exhilaration of being free to think for yourselves, discover the wonders of science and nature, learn to appreciate the arts and literature—the list goes on and on. It will be like a resurrection of souls that have lain dormant in the crypt of Conservatism, no longer having to be draculas feeding off of false information after sunset, no longer burdened by gossip, innuendos, and slander by dim-witted sex-starved male FOX associates as they pontificate in a sanctimonious manner on the set, and afterwards resort to stalking and harassing female employees.

    And the other side of the win-win coin is that FOX will, hopefully, suffer a death it should have met years ago, since its inception.

    I’ll be so happy for your release from the mental and satanic bondage of FOX.

  3. And on another note, the outrage of diehard FOX fans underscores the enormous degree of depravity which defines FOX & its legions of Friends.
    When the Bible spoke of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead, this was an allegory describing the death-like state of mind and the diminishing of the souls, of which Lazarus was chosen as a symbol. When Jesus “raised” Lazarus from the dead, obviously this is a metaphor. Raising Lazarus literally from the dead was never the intent of the story, but an equivalent of the FOX Effect caused many clergy and lay to interpret the story literally. What good would it be to raise someone from the dead physically, when they’re already destined to die, as is the purpose God set forth? To think otherwise, is to assume that Jesus was just intent on parlor tricks—something utterly beneath His Station.
    (If I were to say I literally walked across the pond nearby, and someone saw it, what proof is that if you yourself were not there to witness me walking on water?? Miracles like that, if they occur in that manner, are good ONLY for those who’re there to see it with their own eyes—and even that isn’t a guarantee!)

    So, the point is that FOX/O’Reilly/Trump/GOP fans are in a death-like existence, and to have FOX go away, and the fans to get a new life in the process, will be like a “resurrection” so to speak, which Lazarus underwent.

    Don’t fight the chance to be “resurrected”, FOX fans!! No longer will you have to waste your lives away, sitting like ghouls and zombies watching FOX!!!

      • I’ll go with that. What a strange phenomenon—FOX and its allure for so many. Something worth extensive psychological/physiological study, and
        I would wager that the average FOX viewer’s neurocircuitry has undergone detrimental rewiring/atrophy.

        • There has been stuff written on the appeal of Fox. There is the consistent use of leggy women as anchors and the consistent focus on their legs. There was one that showed how a set was revamped by removing the front cover of the desk so that the incoming woman’s legs would show. Sex and the news.

          Fox contrasting istself with the Liberal Media was a good advertising point.

          The simpler language and the glitzy visuals is also important.

          But to my mind, the mandatory talking points, constantly repeated, is the most effective.

          • One thing about us humans is our ability to adapt and change our environment to benefit us. In the case of FOX, some clever individuals, along with Murdoch and Aliles, recognized the seductive and alluring double-effect of using women and a drumbeat of the same message daily to induce a hypnotic effect on the more weak-minded viewers.
            Apparently, this has been a winning formula, and equally clever and opportunistic humans in the advertisement business sensed this as a goldmine. And the rest is history now.

  5. I’m glad they’re boycotting FOX Noise. I’ve been boycotting the channel for years, not because they fired Bill O’Reilly, but because they allowed Bill O’Reilly and people like him to spout their hatred and bigotry day after day.
