Bill O'Reilly Fox dumps embattled host over harassment allegations

Caroline Heldman, a professor at Occidental College, and guest on the O'Reilly Factor reportedly called the Fox News hotline on Wednesday to make her allegations official against the former network ratings star.

"After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the company and Bill O'Reilly have agreed that Bill O'Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel", 21st Century Fox said in simple, one-sentence statement.

Wednesday on The Lead with Jake Tapper, Ana Navarro weighed in on the news that has rocked the media world - Bill O'Reilly's departure from Fox News.

In January, he filled in Megyn Kelly's spot who described her departure from the network for NBC as a "tough decision". Fox News has demonstrated again and again the strength of its talent bench. Potential successors like Dana Perino, Eric Bolling and Greg Gutfeld have substituted for O'Reilly since he left for vacation.
