"I can live with that". For two decades O'Reilly has ruled the "no spin zone" with cable news' most popular show, and his ratings had never been higher.
O'Reilly and President Donald Trump are both "crowd-pleasing showmen who know how to signal to loyalists in their audience that they are not taking themselves quite as seriously as their detractors are", said news consultant Andrew Tyndall. The New Day panel wondered if O'Reilly's departure would change anything when his behavior seemed to reflect the "toxic culture" that Roger Ailes created before the Fox CEO was ousted over his alleged sexual harassment.
But that wasn't really a lot compared to money Fox News was making from The O'Reilly Factor, which had been the top rated cable news programme for 15 years, bringing in around $100 million in ad revenues annually.
Perino did not address the reasons for O'Reilly's dismissal. Eric Bolling begins his own show at 5 p.m. and the current late-afternoon panel show, "The Five", moves into the 9 p.m. hour.

Fox plainly hopes that the brand and point of view it has developed is stronger than any single personality, even one as outsized as O'Reilly.

President Trump in February ordered the Treasury and other financial regulators to review the banking and consumer finance rules created under Dodd-Frank.
The network's parent company, entertainment giant 21st Century Fox, insisted that Fox News will weather the current storm, noting in a statement the "strength of its talent bench" and expressing "full confidence that the network will continue to be a powerhouse in cable news". Suddenly sexual harassment's a crime?
The New York Times reports that an African-American woman - who remains anonymous - came forward this week with allegations of her own, saying O'Reilly would at various times grunt like a "wild boar" at her desk, leer at her and refer to her as "hot chocolate".
Huddy claims O'Reilly tried to kiss her and tried to stunt her career once she turned him away.
Another former Fox contributor, Kirsten Powers, described on CNN an on-air segment with O'Reilly she found offensive because of the way the host talked about all the "blondes" who worked there. At the time, O'Reilly said he planned to return to the program on April 24. She said she felt "triumphant" when she heard about O'Reilly's firing.
