The revelations sparked outrage among various women’s groups and over 50 sponsors pulled out of advertising on O’Reilly’s show.  The network released a statement “ After a thorough review of the allegations, the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly would not be returning to the Fox News Channel.”

O’Reilly has maintained his innocence of all charges and allegations and released a statement today in response to the firing. The statement read in part “Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history. It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today.” O’Reilly is currently vacationing in Italy and according to the network will not appear on Fox News anymore.
