It is truly disturbing how the executives who run Fox News are completely out of touch with the wants of their own viewers and are actively sabotaging their own network. It began with the ouster of former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, who provided a strong guiding voice for the network.
Now that 21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch calls the shots, he has since fired both legendary host Bill O’Reilly and close O’Reilly and Sean Hannity Bill Shine, who was the network’s co-president. Murdoch appears to have chosen Fox News contributor Jesse Watters as their next target. Thankfully, he is fighting back.
Bill O’Reilly will be appearing on a political comedy tour called “The Spin Stops Here Tour” together with conservative Saturday Night Live legend Dennis Miller. O’Reilly’s protege Jesse Watters had been scheduled to appear together with O’Reilly on the tour, but Fox News executives are apparently using legal tricks to prevent Watters from joining it.
Announced O’Reilly recently on his podcast, “We’re going to do the tour. The tour stays. Miller and Watters and me.” However, Fox News’ lawyers are attempting to punish O’Reilly by using Watters’ contract with the network against him so that he cannot join the tour.
Liberals and Fox News executives alike pounced on a recent statement Watters made as an excuse to smear him. Watters commented about Ivanka Trump’s appearance at an event in Germany, “I don’t really get what’s going on here but I really liked how she was speaking into the microphone.” They claimed that it was an “oral sex joke.” According to reports, Watters is still planning to do O’Reilly’s tour as a show of support for O’Reilly against Fox News executives. Do you think Jesse Watters should quit Fox News before James Murdoch destroys his career?
