Samantha Bee Viciously Revises Bill O'Reilly's Exit Statement

But O'Reilly has been on Fox News for more than two decades.

And he keeps echoing in the broader media landscape. And then he said, you know, "what am I going to do?"

She said she was prepared to deal with the backlash from speaking out against O'Reilly order to make work "less toxic for our children". "The O'Reilly Factor" has generated a huge ad bonanza for Fox, one that yielded more than $178 million in 2015. There was the prospect of even more, with his audience larger in the first three months of 2017 than it has ever been.

Hours after Bill O'Reilly was sacked amid swirling sexual harassment accusations, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee went on the longtime Fox News anchor's old show and made an off-color analogy about not being able to "kiss a woman leaning away from you".

O'Reilly said in the statement at the time that he had settled only to spare his children from the controversy.

Vanity Fair notes that some people in the Fox News newsroom cried over O'Reilly's departure, while other folks were overjoyed, which seemed to mirror the reaction Twitter.

"I understand how hard this has been for many of you", Rupert Murdoch said in the memo. Carlson received a $20 million settlement from 21st Century Fox in September.

O'Reilly was on vacation in Italy at the time, and early Wednesday briefly met Pope Francis in St. Peter's Square in Vatican City.

O'Reilly's exit came nine months after his former boss, Fox News chief executive Roger Ailes, was ousted following sexual harassment claims.

O'Reilly left his show The O'Reilly Factor yesterday (19th April) which he has hosted since 1996, amid sexual harassment allegations.

While O'Reilly insisted he was independent - he described his program as the "No-Spin Zone" - he was more critical of progressive-leaning ideas and often decried the loss of what he called traditional American values that he believed in while growing up in a modest household in the Long Island suburbs during the 1950s and '60s.

Don't expect O'Reilly to slip quietly away, said Annenberg's Hollihan. "He's a brand on his own, as you can tell from all the best-selling books he's got", he said. Calling the situation "disheartening", O'Reilly barely acknowledged the severe accusations against him, dismissing them as "unfounded claims".

Henry Holt also has an untitled O'Reilly book scheduled for release in September.

'The Pope. I would very much like to speak with him.

"Hello, Nation, and shame on you".

He also gave a special blessing to English-speaking pilgrims, saying: 'I invoke upon you and your families the loving mercy of God our Father'.

Stephen Colbert and "Stephen Colbert" took some time Wednesday night to say goodbye to the man they referred to as "Papa Bear": Bill O'Reilly.

Women rights activists declared his dismissal a victory and said they hoped it would encourage victims of sexual harassment to speak out.
