Following a steady stream of sexual harassment lawsuits, Fox News revealed Wednesday that Bill O’Reilly would not be returning to “The O’Reilly Factor” after his vacation ends later this month.
Due to his longstanding reputation as the king of cable news, the bombshell announcement has left loyal viewers infuriated. O’Reilly ‘Factor’ fans are even “threatening to boycott Fox News as a form of protest,” announced Young Turks guest commentator Hannah Cranston on Thursday.
Fans have now “taken their concerns to Facebook [though] Fox News’ Facebook hasn’t actually addressed the issue yet,” Cranston noted, before reading some of her favorites.
“Sorry, but as a [woman], I know far [too] well what the thought of dollars does to some and face it, men with cash and position will get hit, so get the facts, admit [you’re] wrong, take him back, or sink into the sh*thole CNN is in. Y’all deserve each other,” one respondent advised.
“I wonder if [she] really thought she is pro-women, or is she like, no, women are terrible, I know because as a woman I know there’s a lot of money-grubbing people out there,” “Young Turks” host Cenk Uygur wondered in response.
He connected the sentiment with that of many women he’s interviewed on the campaign trail who were vehemently opposed to Hillary Clinton for one specific reason.
“There were women saying, we can’t have a woman president, that is dangerous,” Uygur pointed out. Therefore, the woman who posted on Facebook “might either be like, ‘yea, that’s awesome, men are better than us’ or she might actually think that she is a champion of women and other women are just looking for cash.”
Before Trump eyed Greenland: Here’s what happened last time the US bought a large chunk of the Arctic
Editor’s note: Reports that President Donald Trump has urged aides to look into buying Greenland make us think of the last time the United States bought a major territory in the Arctic: the purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867. Two years ago, we asked William L. Iggiagruk Hensley, a visiting professor at the University of Alaska Anchorage, to write about that historic sale.
‘That is ridiculous’: Andrew Gillum obliterates Santorum for claiming guns aren’t ‘problem’ in mass shootings
CNN contributor Andrew Gillum called conservative pundit Rick Santorum "ridiculous" on Sunday for suggesting that guns are not the problem in mass shootings.
During a CNN discussion on gun control, Santorum criticized calls from Democratic candidates for the government to buy back assault-style weapons in addition to banning them.
"The truth is something has to give," Gillum said. "The stranglehold that the NRA seems to have over Congress, over Washington, D.C., in my opinion, is insane. How can we put the priorities of one interest group above the safety, the security of the American people?"
CNN’s Jake Tapper confronts Trump adviser Navarro with long list of experts calling him a disaster
In a highly contentious interview on CNN's "State of the Union", host Jake Tapper confronted Donald Trump's top economic adviser, Peter Navarro, with a seemingly endless list of economists, analysts and business publications who believe he and his economic advice have both been a disaster and that he is not being straight with the public.
After refusing multiple times to concede that President Donald Trump's trade war -- and accompanying tariffs -- are having any effect on an economy that many financial prognosticators believe is headed towards a recession, Tapper confronted the White House adviser with the list of his critics -- including the Wall Street Journal.
