A federal judge on Tuesday dismissed a defamation lawsuit from a former Fox News producer whose allegations contributed to Bill O'Reilly's ouster in 2017. Rachel Witlieb Bernstein left the network in 2002, following an incident in which O'Reilly allegedly screamed at her. Bernstein received a confidential settlement, and her case was among several that were […]
The video culminates with a little girl proclaiming: “Thank you, President Trump, for letting us say ‘Merry Christmas’ again.” The sentiment is uncalled for at this time of year: It divides the country into opposing camps.
Fox News finished out 2017 as the most-watched basic cable channel for the second year in a row — and as the most influential purveyor of fake news.
Fox News's revamped nightly lineup will do little to stabilize its wobbling, increasingly directionless schedule, says Ken Tucker.
Getting rid of “Fair & Balanced” coincides with a new hardening of Fox News’s arteries. Its lifeblood — getting viewers riled about perceived persecution by liberals — has become its primary reason to exist.
Tim Allen's comedy 'Last Man Standing,' now canceled, could be said to be a victim of its conservative-in-every-sense image.
While savaging Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey and Trump’s health care bill, Colbert and his guests — Jon Stewart, John Oliver, Samantha Bee, Rob Corddry, and Ed Helms — sat around swapping war stories.
One of the more inexplicable stars of the Fox News channel is Eric Bolling, once one-fifth of “The Five” and now one-fifth of “The Fox News Specialists,” the show that has replaced “The Five” at 5 p.m. Confused? Not as much as Bolling is, routinely. A beefy former commodities trader who always looks as though he’s shaking off a brain-rattling tackle on the football field, Bolling somehow gained the confidence of Fox News executives a few years ago.
'Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner' felt like a relief after watching the president spew more venom than Samantha Bee could manufacture with a roomful of staff writers.
Everyone else is weighing in on President Trump’s first hundred days — why not The Simpsons? In a new clip, we see what’s going on in the White House, and the Simpsons‘ writers are pretty grim. Press secretary Sean Spicer has hanged himself, with a sign on his corpse saying, “I quit.” Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon are squeezing each other’s throats the way Homer usually throttles Bart. Ivanka Trump has replaced Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.
Bill O’Reilly came back from that Italy vacation during which Fox News fired him, and on Monday evening he launched a podcast called the “No-Spin News."
During the past few weeks’ media coverage of Bill O’Reilly’s sexual harassment scandal, Stephen Colbert declined to say much about it, noting on the air one night that he’d spent too much of his life engaging with O’Reilly to start bringing him up again. With O’Reilly’s ouster from Fox News official and television’s biggest news story of the day, Colbert dove back into his O’Reilly obsession with lusty gusto.
Already, Bill O’Reilly’s famous war cry — the full-throated yell that began every edition of The O’Reilly Factor: “Caution! You are about to enter the No-Spin Zone!” — sounds as old-fashioned and corny as Rod Serling’s “You’ve just crossed over into… The Twilight Zone!” Now it’s O’Reilly, the biggest ratings magnet for Fox News, who’s entered the twilight zone: Parent company 21st Century Fox has decided to cut him loose after multiple accusations of sexual harassment. It’s a distinct possibility that O’Reilly will never have a regular perch on TV ever again. Fox says the company and O’Reilly have “agreed” that the anchor will not return, making it unlikely he’ll do a farewell broadcast.
Bill O'Reilly announces that he's taking a vacation. With no return date mentioned, many are speculating whether the embattled host will ever return.
In yet another example of how cellphones and social media create viral media moments, the video of a passenger being dragged off a United Airlines flight Sunday turned the luckless passenger into a kind of TV star. It was the perfect Monday-morning news story, a welcome contrast for harried TV news producers looking to provide information other than discussions about President Trump’s Syrian airstrikes and the Republican trick confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.
If ever there was a time for “Saturday Night Live” to have a go at Bill O’Reilly, this was the week to start snarking. With 60-plus advertisers yanking their ads from “The O’Reilly Factor” after the New York Times piece on charges of sexual harassment by O’Reilly — and with O’Reilly topping the bestseller lists with a brand-new book, “Old School” — the topic could not be more timely. The show presented two awful sketches that featured Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump.
