Bill O'Reilly exit marks end of an era for Rupert Murdoch - Apr. 19, 2017

21st Century Fox's decision to bow to public pressure and remove longtime Fox News host Bill O'Reilly appears to mark the end of an era in the buccaneering style of the man who built the company, Rupert Murdoch.



Murdoch has always made clear his intention to pass control of his empire to his children. Yet there's almost a Shakespearean quality to the reports that those heirs, James and Lachlan, essentially outvoted him in deciding to cut O'Reilly loose, following the departure of Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, which they had similarly pressed for.
