Bill O’Reilly was forced to leave Fox News after it was reported that Fox News was paying millions upon millions of hush money to all of the women that O’Reilly had been sexual harassing. Essentially, O’Reilly seemed to comment on literally every woman’s looks and he pressured the younger women into thinking they owed him sexual favors in exchange for potential career advancements.
I’m glad that a proudly stubborn 68-year old white man who still denies any wrongdoing, can get a second chance. This is America. Everyone knows a man over the age of 60 whose entire brand is making wild stands and holding his ground even after being wrong, can change.
Fortunately, Newsmax has dropped from the clouds to give Bill O’Reilly their 8pm spot so he can pretty much do exactly what he was doing on Fox News and when I say ‘do exactly what he was doing on Fox News’ I’m not even talking about his TV show. Pray for the cute interns over at Newsmax.
Newsmax is also chasing other former Fox News talent — Greta Van Susteren and Eric Bolling have been approached to join as hosts of hourlong shows in prime time. Bolling already has a deal with CRTV for a digital show.
Adding to the Newsmax mix could be former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, who we’re told is set to star on a politically focused late-night panel show.
An insider told Page Six, “The deals are not done yet, but talks are in the advanced stages, certainly with O’Reilly. The thinking is, following a 6 p.m. news show, Greta would anchor the 7 p.m. hour, O’Reilly would be back at 8 p.m., and Bolling could smoothly continue on at 9 p.m. Spicer and his cohorts would go on at 10 p.m., with the later slot allowing the show to be looser. But the deals are not yet signed and sealed.”
Wow, what a star-studded lineup full of people who would literally get egged on most streets they walked on right now. It’s bold strategy for Newsmax, a TV channel then I guess I apparently have(??).
Can’t wait for the least charming man in American history, Sean Spicer, to get his own wacky late night TV show. Might as well cancel Conan right now. All eyes on Late Night With The Spice Man. Newsmax has all of the answers to the questions we haven’t even asked yet.
