Bill O'Reilly has already been wiped away as the face of FOX News! Network bosses fired their top-rated host after a flood of new sexual harassment claims. Then they took the disgraced star's name off his own show! Angry executives scrambled to turn "The O'Reilly Factor" into just "The Factor" after former FOX star Kirsten Powers agreed to blast O'Reilly on CNN. The FOX veteran even implicated ousted CEO Roger Ailes, claiming he once confessed that Bill "likes to put up dirty pictures and ask pretty girls to talk about them."
Sources tell The National ENQUIRER that Kristen's accusations forced FOX to reveal that Tucker Carlson is taking over O'Reilly's time slot. "The original plan was to use Bill's old time slot to showcase some new talent," said a source. "But when they learned Kirsten was about to make an appearance on CNN to blast Bill, they decided to immediately announce that Tucker had been given the 8 pm hour!"
Meanwhile, news insiders are gloating over O'Reilly's big downfall — saying that he's now an untouchable. "No matter how popular he is," said one TV veteran, "Bill won't be hired by any major network. He's already been in touch with one start-up, but there's no way they can afford him. Bill was making $18 million a year. It's hard to believe he can get back in front of the cameras without taking an 80% pay cut!"
