"Sources:" O'Reilly Out at Fox

End of Phase 1 of the Fox Cinematic Universe?

The Murdochs have decided Bill O'Reilly's 21-year run at Fox News will come to an end. According to sources briefed on the discussions, network executives are preparing to announce O'Reilly's departure before he returns from an Italian vacation on April 24. Now the big questions are how the exit will look and who will replace him...

Supposedly they're just working out the details now, namely:

* Will O'Reilly be allowed back for a show or two to say good-bye to his loyal audience? Amazingly, Fox is supposedly "leaning against" that.

* O'Reilly just signed a multiyear $20 mil/year contract. Do they pay that out? Seems like the have to. They just paid out Ailes for the remainder of his contract. I guess maybe they're looking into legal pretexts to not honor the contract.

* Who will replace him? Obviously a big question.

The idea that Shep Smith might be back in the night lineup fills me with dread. (Remember, he used to do the 7pm news report, before being moved to make way for Greta VanSustern (herself bumped to 7pm due to the arrival of MeAgain Kelly).

Matter of fact, I bet Fox is talking to NBC now about buying back MeAgain.
