Bill O'Reilly Leaving Fox News Network-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

This is a forwarded email that alleged that the host of one of the top rated cable news/political commentary programs, Bill O’Reilly, is leaving Fox News and moving to CNN.

The Truth:

We have found no evidence that Bill O’Reilly is leaving Fox News.

Fox News Corporation (FNC), in a July 2, 2013 article by Washington Post, announced that they plan to install Megan Kelly in their prime time line up when she returns from maternity leave. The article also said that other Fox News hosts Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren “appear to be locked down on contracts.”

The Weekly World News did publish an article on January 8, 2013 that said, “Bill O’Reilly is done with the ‘No Spin Zone.’ CNN has made him the largest offer in the history of cable news.”  Since that article, O’Reilly continues to host The O’Reilly Factor on the Fox News Channel.
The accuracy of the reporting by Weekly World News may not be up to the caliber of other media sources.  It is a publication found near the super market check out counters and has recently reported that dinosaurs have been discovered on the planet Mars.  Weekly World News also writes about flying saucers, space aliens, “Bat Boy” and “Big Foot” on a regular basis.
