Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

British regulators found Fox "fit and proper" to buy the rest of BSkyB. This is why the Bill O'Reilly scandal mattered.

Quote:
Meanwhile Fox just scraped through Britain's fit and proper test for media owners, due to its handling of sexual and racial harassment cases at Fox News in the US.

"The behaviours alleged at Fox News amount to significant corporate failure, however the overall evidence available to date does not provide a reasonable basis to conclude that if Sky were 100 per cent owned and controlled by Fox, it would not be fit and proper to hold broadcast licences."
Chiefly, the report had serious reservations about Fox controlling a large percentage of the British media market.

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

And from that article:

Quote:
"If you have got someone who owns the media in total [or] in general, they can actually sway the public in how to vote in this country," Senator Hanson told Fairfax Media.
Most certainly. We saw Election 2016, where the majority of the media told potential voters...they didn't need to vote because their candidate was going to win...

Huh. I never heard that. Maybe you watch different channels.

...or not needing to vote because their candidate had no chance whatsoever of winning, as the case my be.

No. You're right.
The winners supporters just felt too strongly about their candidate and his vision of America, that they just had to go out and make their statement- to hell with the odds and what the media thought!

...while at the same time, making sure not to tell any pollsters because of how ashamed they actually were.

Is Hannity the dude on the left or the right?

Touché, and I'm also now embarrassed at my misogynistic attempt at a joke, too.

CNN and MSNBC never predicted Hillary Clinton to win the election (purposely ignoring evidence to the contrary)?
