I have been waiting for this day, I like 80% thought it would never come, not from anything other than death or retirement anyway, but:

Bill O’Reilly is officially out at Fox News


The conservative-leaning host’s downfall was swift and steep, set in motion less than three weeks ago by revelations of a string of harassment complaints against him. The questions about his conduct represented yet another black eye to Fox, which had dealt with a sexual harassment scandal involving its co-founder and then-chairman Roger Ailes, just last summer. 
“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, the news channel’s parent company, said in a statement Wednesday.

And finally:

I honestly did not believe that Bill O'Reilly would be fired no matter how many sexual harassment claims were reported against him. Even the news of advertisers dropping him like a just-microwaved Hot Pocket, even when I heard it had gotten so bad that they were unable to fill his entire time slot because they didn't have enough commercials left to show. Wonderful as that was, I remained pessimistic.

It's been a rough, stressful week, and it's only halfway over. I needed this.

I fucking hate Bill O'Reilly.
