Bill O'Reilly left and Stephen Colbert host of"The Colbert Report. on the Fox News show"The O'Reilly Factor in 2007

"Bill O'Reilly, who hosted this program for 20 years, is leaving the Fox News Channel", she said. Thus, Fox News, which is first and foremost devoted to maintaining market share (a.k.a. advertising revenues), had to fold their hand.

Representative Maxine Waters is glad to see that Bill O'Reilly is now gone from Fox News in the wake of the tide of sexual harassment allegations against him.

Ailes, the network's former CEO, resigned last summer after a series of sexual harassment allegations were leveled against him.

Colbert also took a moment to offer consolation to O'Reilly's fans. O'Reilly was photographed this week meeting Pope Francis.

"Fox News' dominance stems from the consistency of its messaging and the loyalty of its broader audience more than the success of star anchors", the analyst says.

Police have also issued an arrest warrant for a second suspect in the shooting, according to a document obtained by Reuters. He was shot to death after opening fire on a police van. "Police officers were deliberately targeted", Henry-Brandet added.

"Fox News made a decision to extend Bill's vacation to forever", Kimmel said on his show. The O'Reilly Factor host was set to return on Monday, but Fox chose to end his era before that happened, much to the delight of those who wanted Fox News to fire O'Reilly over his many years of allegedly predatory behavior toward women. "I owe a lot to Bill O'Reilly", Colbert said.

He was sacked following an independent investigation by the law firm Paul, Weiss into claims that he harassed several women.

"Journalism has died in this country, there isn't any", Huckabee said during the interview on the show introduced Wednesday as "The Factor", leaving out mention of O'Reilly". "Shame on you: You failed Bill O'Reilly", he declared. Palin said, "You can ask them why I'm no longer with Fox".

Fox News had apparently renewed its contract with O'Reilly recently, in spite of settling sexual harassment allegations from five women for $13 million.

O'Reilly issued a statement on Wednesday after the news of his departure was announced, saying, "It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims".
