‘Our New Press Secretary’: Media Reacts on Twitter to Reported Departure of Bill O’Reilly
In light of reports that Fox News has finally made the decision to part ways with Bill O’Reilly, Twitter is, of course, ablaze with reactions.
Some, like Gizmodo Media’s Ashley Feinberg and our own John Ziegler, cracked jokes:

It's such a shame Bill O'Reilly can be targeted like this in our country today. If only he had access to some centers of power to help him! https://t.co/Eb1INAGY41

It is outrageous that Fox News is violating Bill O'Reilly's 1st Amendment rights.

Others spoke glibly while taking a more honest look at the situation:
they wouldn't give the 8 pm to Jesse Watters….would they?

They're bringing back Glenn Beck, right?

Attorney Lisa Bloom, meanwhile was triumphant:
When women speak our truth the old order shatters.
We slayed the dragon.
