According to Radar Online, Fox News is desperately trying to finesse Bill O’Reilly into signing a non-compete agreement for as much as $20 million.
He is reported to have never signed one and can go to any network and compete with Fox.
Extra reports that the TV station is “in a scramble” because of it.
Bill O’Reilly was ousted – allegedly – over sexual harassment suits that caused his advertisers to bolt. However, the NY Times reported a number of [leftist] groups pushed the advertisers to depart with the Soros-funded Media Matters leading the pack.
Fox is now under FBI investigation which also involves the USPS. That also was reportedly prompted by leftist groups and politicians in New York.
According to CNN, “The U.S. Justice Department’s investigation of Fox News has widened to include a second law enforcement agency.”
Bill O’Reilly has been taping daily podcasts on his website, Bill O’Reilly, The Factor, and had 750 thousand listeners on the first day. He’s planning to expand it, conduct interviews, and produce videos.
He won’t sign a non-compete now. From what he says on the podcasts, he was not ready to leave tv.
If he shows up on another network, he will immediately command an audience of millions of Fox viewers.
Radar Online is also reporting that Sean Hannity has called together a rare, staff-wide meeting. It’s no secret he and his friends think he might be following O’Reilly, Ailes, and Bill Shine out the door as the James’ and Lachlan’s Fox News moves left. James is still a member of the UK Labour Party which is full of communists.
Hannity denies he is leaving Fox but the rumors are flying with radar suggesting his departure is imminent. In an update out of Politico, Hannity is said to have told his staff he is not leaving.
We can’t necessarily vouch for Radar Online’s or Extra’s information, but they had more than one source.
