But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today."Bill O'Reilly is officially out at Fox News Channel".

Even 21st Century Fox executive chairman Rupert Murdoch, who has stood by O'Reilly amid recent revelations about sexual harassment allegations, does not have a close personal relationship with his star primetime host, several of these sources said.

The embattled news anchor and longtime pillar of Fox News was dropped on Wednesday by the network he helped build amid a steady stream of allegations that he engaged in sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour toward women over the years.

Southland attorney Lisa Bloom, who represents three women accusing O'Reilly of sexual harassment, called the announcement by Fox News a victory for victims who were fearless enough to come forward - and hopes more will now do the same.

O'Reilly's exit, which was first reported by NY magazine, follows that of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes, who was forced to resign in July after being accused of sexual misconduct by a number of women, including former anchor Gretchen Carlson.

The Times reports that Greene first shared her allegations about O'Reilly last fall, but only now agreed to go on the record.

At least now maybe things will have a friendlier air with Carlson sandwiched between Martha McCallum at 7 p.m. and "The Five" at 9 p.m. O'Reilly never passed the baton to Carlson at the close of his show.
