Like him or not (and most of us do), Bill O’Reilly changed the entire face and flow of cable news when he launched his Fox News show way back in 1996.
Amid news of his termination, which immediately dominated headlines Wednesday, millions expressed their anger at Fox News brass throughout social media.
Knowing O’Reilly, it wasn’t long before he issued a statement to his faithful followers and left them with a respectful and kind departure message.
He will certainly be missed by millions of fans across the world. Godspeed, Billy boy.
Official Bill O’Reilly statement after his termination:
“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, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant news network in television.
“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. I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers.
“I wish only the best for Fox News Channel,” O’Reilly concluded.
