Bill O’Reilly is being canned from Fox News. Why?
Not because Rupert Murdoch (who owns Fox) is morally offended that O’Reilly and Fox paid $13 million to five women over the years to settle claims of sexual harassment and inappropriate conduct.
Not because O’Reilly’s ratings have fallen as a result of the revelation (if anything, they’ve risen).
O’Reilly is being fired because advertisers have deserted him. They don’t want to be associated with a sexual predator. It doesn’t matter how many people tune in if companies refuse to book commercials.
Never underestimate the power of enraged consumers.
Fox News has had problems because of the predatory inclinations of several men on its payrolls . When the Republican Party convened in Cleveland in July to nominate Trump for president, Fox News was led by Roger Ailes, and its prime-time lineup was Greta Van Susteren, Bill O’Reilly, Megyn Kelly and Sean Hannity. Nine months later, only Hannity remains.
I can’t say I’m upset by any of this. Fox News was almost singularly responsible for the election of Donald Trump, another sexual predator. Too bad advertisers can’t pull ads for Trump and get him fired, too.

As you may have heard, a senior member of our admin team has been suspended from our FB page, this time for 7 days. The offense was posting an article about Alex Jones from Right-Wing Watch. The post header was simply a quote from the article.
You may remember this happening to us before. It seems like this only happens if people complain about it to Facebook, which leads us to believe we’re being targeted. Facebook has warned if it happens enough the suspension can be permanent and the page could be taken down.
There are two things you can do if we’re ever shut down and you want to stay connected as a community. 1.) Join our e-mail list to stay in touch. 2.) Make a secure emergency donation to our development fund for unplanned events. Links to do both are in the blog post below.
On April 6, Ivanka Trump’s company won provisional approval from the Chinese government for three new trademarks, giving it monopoly rights to sell Ivanka brand jewelry, bags and spa services in the world’s second-largest economy.
That same night, the first daughter and her husband, Jared Kushner, sat next to the president of China and his wife for a steak and Dover sole dinner at Mar-a-Lago.
Do you think that just maybe the Chinese approved the trademarks as a gift to coincide with the steak and sole at Mar-a-Lago?
Of course they did. Which is why the Trumps running their family business out of the White House is fleecing America — using government office to enrich themselves. It’s what a two-bit dictator’s family does in a third-world nation.
