O'Reilly's ratings weren't really a problem.

That is exactly what I said.

Still nothing official from the network.

Sources briefed on the discussions say O’Reilly’s exit negotiations are moving quickly. Right now, a key issue on the table is whether he would be allowed to say good-bye to his audience, perhaps the most loyal in all of cable (O’Reilly’s ratings have ticked up during the sexual-harassment allegations). Fox executives are leaning against allowing him to have a sign-off, sources say. The other main issue on the table is money. O’Reilly recently signed a new multiyear contract worth more than $20 million per year. When Roger Ailes left Fox News last summer, the Murdochs paid out $40 million, the remainder of his contract.


According to sources, Fox News wants the transition to be seamless. Executives are currently debating possible replacement hosts. Names that have been discussed include Eric Bolling, Dana Perino, and Tucker Carlson, who would move from his successful 9 p.m. slot and create a need for a new host at that time. One source said Sean Hannity is happy at 10 p.m. and would not want to move.

The Murdochs’ decision to dump O’Reilly shocked many Fox News staffers I’ve spoken to in recent days. Late last week, the feeling inside the company was that Rupert Murdoch would prevail over his son James, who lobbied to jettison the embattled host. It’s still unclear exactly how the tide turned. According to one source, Lachlan Murdoch’s wife helped convince her husband that O’Reilly needed to go, which moved Lachlan into James’s corner. The source added that senior executives at other divisions within the Murdoch empire have complained that if O’Reilly’s allegations had happened to anyone else at their companies, that person would be gone already.

No, You made a point that viewers are dying off, and something needed to be done to maintain ratings.
Fox can plan for the future all they want. But it would be a bad idea for them to act as though that future has already arrived.

Best guess. Carlson at 8, Dobbs at 9 and Hannity stays at 10.

I think the 24/7 cable news have jumped the shark.  Internet news is the future.  Glenn Beck and a couple of others have tried subscription internet TV (eg: the Blaze).  When they have found a way to make it free to viewers, cable news will go the way of the VCR and the Dodo Bird!

Don't know yet, but the NY Times and others are who helped put the pressure on to push him out.
This will not stop with O'reilly. The left's next target will likely be Hannity or Carlson.

They will target anyone who leaves themselves vulnerable!  Nobody who lives in a glass house can throw stones and those Conservatives who have the stones to do just that, are the natural enemy of the Democrat Shadow Party (in this case Media Matters).

Papa Bear ought not have been messing with Goldilocks.  He left himself open and the Left have killt and gutted him.  Now they are trying to obscure his message; it's an old game!
