Now that the Murdochs have liberated-by-liberalizing Fox News, welcome to living in Dry Gulch, USA.
“Visiting the quaint Old West community of Dry Gulch, Jimmy quickly runs afoul of town bully Gunnar Flinch, who has an eye for Lois. Not necessarily a job for Superman, who nonetheless provides a still timely lesson on bullying.”
But that only came from the Adventures of Superman, ‘The Bully of Dry Gulch’, TV episode 1955.
In real life, the bad guys are who their enemies say they are, forever.
Dry Gulch is that place in time where there’s not a single television network in sight that’ doesn’t lean left; that doesn’t dare not goose-step to the progressive march toward globalism.
“Dropped” by Fox through what he calls “unfounded allegations” of sexual harassment, Bill O’Reilly has been abruptly “disappeared” from the networks.
Although they’re still feverishly trying, the progressive left haven’t been able to take out President Donald Trump. Did they take out O’Reilly instead?
If that is the case, the political strategy of the progressive left could not be more perfect. What better way to get rid of Trump than to rid the media world of the not left-leaning television network?
“The network has faced ongoing issues with sexual harassment claims and loss of prominent personalities. Such allegations drove Roger Ailes from the company. Fox News has since settled with former network personality Gretchen Carlson, who sued the company, citing harassment from Ailes. (Breitbart, April 19, 2017 )
“Carlson’s settlement was for $20 million, and Fox News issued a public apology to Carlson.
“A fairly new addition to the evening lineup, Tucker Carlson will slide into the 8 p.m. time slot in place of O’Reilly. Fox News sources confirmed to Breitbart News the changes, including moving The Five program from 5 p.m. to the 9 p.m. time slot that Tucker Carlson is leaving. Eric Bolling, a regular presence on The Five, will take the 5 p.m. slot. Martha MacCallum, who has been hosting a seasonal special called The First 100 Days, is expected to continue at 7 p.m.
“According to Fox News, “After a thorough and careful review of the allegations,” parent company 21st Century Fox said in a statement, “the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel, Fox News itself reported:
“The climate shifted dramatically after The New York Times reported on April 1 that O’Reilly or Fox had paid $13 million to settle five cases against him alleging sexual or other harassment. More than 50 advertisers withdrew from his prime-time show, and 21st Century Fox asked a law firm to investigate a complaint from a woman who said O’Reilly dropped efforts to make her a contributor in 2013 after she turned down his invitation to visit his hotel room.”
“The network also lost Greta Van Susteren in 2016 and Megyn Kelly in January of this year. Van Susteren is said to have exercised an exit clause in her contract that applied in the event that Ailes was no longer chairman of the network. She has since joined MSNBC.
“Kelly exited Fox News for a position with NBC News. The New York Times reported that O’Reilly’s behavior factored in to Kelly’s exit.”
It seems that all it takes for the removal of white, heterosexual male news personalities is suspicions of sexual harassment. It will be like shooting fish in a barrel to go after whomever the progressives want to take out of circulation next.
Perhaps it was lucky for Trump that he originated from the same garish, tawdry background of Reality TV, where he got to know, firsthand, the progressive left style, their capabilities and their political strategy.
Only the day before yesterday, statistics showed that 90 percent of mainstream media are working against Trump.
Now with the anchor who advised “Don’t be a pinhead” gone, you can make that closer to 100 percent.
Left in charge of the ‘bloviating’ at Fox News will be politically correct-perfect Juan Williams and blowhard Bob Beckel, both promoted in the O’Reilly aftermath by Fox.
Here’s hoping that all leftover, non-progressive heterosexuals at Fox are lawyered up because being forced into the long-running narrative of get-even feminist colleagues, their contracts can’t be counted on to trump their vulnerability.
Meanwhile, count on coming upheaval living life in Dry Gulch, USA.
