Bill O'Reilly Gets $25 Million From Fox News As Final Payout

Tyler Durden's picture

With Bill O’Reilly officially ousted by Fox News, there was speculation whether the former Fox anchorman would receive a lump sump payout as a parting settlement considering that O'Reilly signed a new 4 year contract just before being ousted. It has now been confirmed by FT and CNN that indeed, O'Reilly will get a payout of $25 million, equivalent to one year’s salary, as part of his exit settlement with 21st Century Fox.

“The amended contract provides for Bill to receive a maximum of one year’s salary,” said a person with knowledge of the terms quoted by the FT.

O'Reilly's payout, following the presenter’s dismissal from Fox News this week after a 22-year career with the network, is less than the $40m Roger Ailes, the network’s former chairman, received when he was fired in similar circumstances last year.

At an event in New York on Wednesday night, James Murdoch, the company's CEO, was asked by a New York Times reporter about the abrupt exit.

Murdoch said "we did a thorough investigation, a thorough review, and we reached a conclusion. Everything that we said in our statement is all you need to know."

O'Reilly issued a statement that reaffirmed his innocence, saying "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."

So $25,000,000 is the price of the soul for sale in the MSM self serving whore business ???
Good riddance to this lying statist cover providing POS.

I care zero for O'Reilly or Fox News ... but, that the NYT, Media Matters, Politico, CNN and the rest of the Liberal Cabal would extort his advertisers to force him out is the criminal act surrounding this  event

... and not his groping of young white women that continually get paraded down Fox halls? 


Who are there anchors now? Anyone ever heard of them? Have they any accomplishments? Fear we'll be saying that about the network soon

What a dick, am amazed so many fucking idiots love his stupid show

Fox requires women have great legs and/or ample cleavage before they let them in front of a camera, and yet they have the cheek to be the morality police? Time to unionize the MSM soft porn industry?

ne-tiger's picture

That's now. When fox started, they only had cheap ugly bitches with stupid shows like "married with children". Bill Oreilly was that legacy.  

Now they have all the pretty dummy blondes there. I can keep TV silent and watch their faces if bored.

Total smear campaign against another conservative sponsored by the Far Left terrorists with ties to the DNC.

Reports Suggest That O’Reilly’s Firing Was Influenced By Organized Far Left Smear Campaign

Internet search Amanda Mackris.....................................


O'Reilly - with his ZEPPELIN SIZED EGO - brought this on himself.

Waggy fingered Bill MADE himself a target by settling for big dough with Mackris - and the strumpet parade followed.

"I want to protect my children" - HORSE SHIT

Problems with O'Reilly are numerous. Hot head. Know it all. Ego. Full of himself. 

and.........his "I'm above the law" idiocy. 

IF.....he was such a "good guy" - where are his defenders? 



25 million is a nice "fuck off "package for a projectioning blowhard.

Whenever I see her face, she reminds me of a female version of John Elway, at least when he was younger.


MANvsMACHINE's picture

I agree with most of what you said and the money is nice but I think he'd prefer to keep things as they were.

Why would anyone defend him?  He is, as you say, a "Hot head. Know it all. Ego. Full of himself."

Will that be enough for him to retire on at age 67, or will he have to be supplemented with Social Security?

was there no morals clause in his contract?

Morals? Like the 10 Commandments or those in the Talmud? The pay out is a hint.

That's why men will keep losing power: 

A. Their big head just can't control the little head

B. They just can't figure out that NO pussy is worth that kind of money. The list of rich guys getting screwed by the women's lawyers is a mile long.

Go ahead, be a Tiger, O'Reilly! See if it works out better than for Tiger Woods.

Word of advice to all these horny super egos: Get a call girl or masturbate, if you can't have the one you want. Pretend that you're with the one you want. Women do it all the time, you damn schmucks!

UselessEater's picture

Good men do not fall for this shite. The system is rigged to find the weakest men, then they are elevated.

Get a new meme and promote the quiet guys, the list of rich guys promomted by the jews is long.

that'll show those women who got him fired.  What a deflating bitch cry that turned out to be...."Let's get Bill fired, get him a $25 mill payout, and let some other network pick him up in 3 months to do another O'reilly factor"  The sloppy snatch crying has got to the fuck up bitches!

Evan Wilson's picture

I do wonder if it was some kind of set up or not. I especially wonder since it was only after he signed a new contract that 'all of a sudden there are problems.'

One scenario, is what if he didn't want to work anymore? If he just didn't sign a new contract, the existing contract ends and he gets nothing BUT if he signs a new contract and then get dismissed, he gets a payout of one year for doing nothing. (And the amount of the payout is so large that anyone would be able to live a reasonably good lifestlye for the rest of thier life.)

For 99% of the people, when they get fired from a job, it is devastating and a big financial hit. Here, it was a big payday for doing nothing in return.

MSNBC host wonders if Fox has a “responsibility” to pick a non-White male to replace O’Reilly


The fanatic lefties are chopping off any effective conservative one by one.

Insurrector's picture

The only true and respectable conservative on Fox was George Will.  O'Reilly didn't like that Will panned his "Killing Reagan" charade-for-a-book. And Will rightly saw that Trump was no conservative. 

Fox fired the most effective conservative they had.  Rumor has it that Bill was behind that self-inflicted wound.

Your statement is what my 11th grade teacher called a 'glittering generality.'  No doubt you also form all of your opinions and filter facts to support it.  You lazy scut!

I can't believe clowns like this get paid 25 mil.
