Never too big

Bill O'Reilly is just the latest to learn that no matter how big you are, SJWs in the media and the corpocracy can take you down if you give them half a chance.
The Murdochs have decided Bill O’Reilly’s 21-year run at Fox News will come to an end. According to sources briefed on the discussions, network executives are preparing to announce O’Reilly’s departure before he returns from an Italian vacation on April 24.... The Murdochs’ decision to dump O’Reilly shocked many Fox News staffers I’ve spoken to in recent days. Late last week, the feeling inside the company was that Rupert Murdoch would prevail over his son James, who lobbied to jettison the embattled host. It’s still unclear exactly how the tide turned. According to one source, Lachlan Murdoch’s wife helped convince her husband that O’Reilly needed to go, which moved Lachlan into James’s corner.
I'm not a fan of O'Reilly. My book Media Whores was killed by the publisher and I was paid not to write it after Fox News learned that O'Reilly was one of the subjects to whom a chapter was devoted. But the point is that no one is bigger on cable news than he is, and yet a few allegations were enough to bring him down despite his continuing popularity.

This is why you MUST build your own platform. It's a non-negotiable.

Dennis Miller and Jesse Waters will have to find another set of coat tails. Actual evidence is not required to have someone dismissed. Allegations are good enough except if your Bill Clinton, then you're immune from accountability. Bill O became more arrogant and filled with hubris, but his millions are in the bank, but his mainstream career is finished.

My problem with O'Reilly is that he's not terribly smart, and substitutes a kind of an arrogant self-confidence for insight.

For example: he had a NARAL representative on his show and she opined that there are as many abortions now as there were 100 years ago, but now they're legal. After she told that outrageous lie, she had the classic tell of a liar written all over her face. Despite the fact that there are many responses that could have reduced that lie to shreds, he never followed up. Just sort of accepted it at face value. He just proceeded to his next bluster.

Blogger Robert Divinity April 19, 2017 2:42 PM  

As a preface, I detest O'Reilly. He's an arrogant, ill-informed jerk. That said, he used his media gig to build his own platform to sell books and other product. Whether his brand can withstand the hit is another matter.

Fox News is about to become converged and if an actual right-wing alternative becomes available it, too, isn't long for it. The sheep molester from rural Victoria's fortunes are in the hands of female Social Justice Warriors now. Stick a fork in them.

He should be able to build his own platform if he wants to, but I wonder if the pre-platformed media folk end up atrophied on their borrowed planks, unable to do it for themselves after eviction.

Milo was fairly well-positioned to move to his own platform, even if he was reluctant to lose Fox News. Even then, he did not make the immediate and pre-emptive move that he very well knew was available to him.

I can't imagine that the old media men have the wherewithal to walk without their crutches.

Sure, O'Reilly seemed like a guy who would form an opinion and run with it as gospel. Never revising it when he encountered a flaw. Headstrong, typical Irish. But there are worse sins.

Ninety advertisers dropped him. Ninety. And that's what did him in. That's an eyepopping and worrying number about the level of SJW convergence in the "good corporate citizenship" racket. I knew things were bad, didn't think they were that bad.

After all we don't really have much on O'Reilly. It's a he-said, she-said thing, and rather ridiculous. He supposedly called a black woman "hot chocolate" -- but only when nobody else could hear it. And this happened nine years ago. And as nebulous as that is, that's the only concrete thing we have on him.

Meanwhile, Elliot Spitzer got spectacularly busted in a sordid business and that ATTRACTED advertisers. "Client No. 9" got his own new TV show on CNN out of it.

We need more discipline and more vocal opposition to these converged companies. They ruined the Boy Scouts of America. The BSA won at SCOTUS, but caved when all the sponsors pulled out anyway. There's way too many victories piling up for the SJWs with this hypocritical moralistic ninja-fu.

Independent platforms are the only defense. The downside is they are by necessity much smaller and reach fewer people. Everything you wrote is true, which illustrates why independence is necessary. Fox could have withstood the storm, but the Murdochs of SJW lineage wanted to virtue signal as much generate profit. Fox News is a big, fat target if Bannon or someone like him gets the backing and gumption to do it.

This reflects so much more heavily on the Murdoch family than Bill O'Reilly. O'Reilly is kind of an ass, kind of a dirty old man. That was OK for the Murdochs when he was making money for them and could hush them up. Then when truth came out, THAT is when it wasn't acceptable for O'Reilly to act this way anymore. One can presume their private actions were their true feelings, and their actions in the wide open public are the result of - new economic calculations.

Well, it's too bad the Murdochs and Bill O'Reilly broke up they deserve each other.

This is a good object lesson. If you are even mildly right leaning you are simply not safe. Even if you think your "crimes" are minor compared to your "value", there will be a time where the "atmosphere" is right to attack and remove you.

Even though O'Reily is their biggest draw he relies on them to reach his audience -- in large measure. His book sales are his and his alone but I do wonder if he can drive sales without the talking head show.
Time will tell.

If you even rely on a converged tool you are at risk -- as Youtubers are finding out from the wave of right-leaning ad-sense purgers.

As an aside, the Right needs to get better at moral panic tactics. This might be the only real weapon that the Left has that is effective anymore.

OMG THAT'S RAPE! Unless, of course, the female wants the attention. Which they all probably did at the time. But they have since changed their minds for 15m of fame.

Do women realize that nonsense like this makes men want to avoid them professionally? Would any man, after watching this happen to O'Reilly, willingly have a meeting with a woman? Go to a business lunch with one? Or, God forbid, start a business with one?

I was fed all the equality nonsense growing up. I never bought into the more extreme claims (i.e. women in the military), but I left college thinking that women could be just as good in business and therefore deserved a fair shake.

Women themselves have disabused me of any such notion. They have no place in business. They are at best a distraction to the team, and at worst the cause of its complete destruction. And that's assuming a woman who actually does her job.

Streaming video is going to be a tough nut to crack for Alt Tech.

One promising approach is the open source WebTorrent protocol. It takes the bittorrent approach to peer-to-peer video sharing, but it implements it in the browser and makes it seem like any other source of embedded web video.

This could crack the nut of the daunting storage and bandwidth costs incurred by an Alt Tech streaming video platform. The main site would just gather up the content seeds from content producers, but the userbase would handle the vast majority of the hosting and streaming, via background torrenting.

Bitchute is pretty young, but it does a good job of showing off the potential of the technology for Alt Tech: https://www.bitchute.com/

I noticed something on the linked article, that he's asking for a sign off, something the suits are leaning against, and then they mentioned his audience who are considered to be very loyal.

At first I thought, these executives have no concept of loyalty at all, how do you do that to a man that has earned on your behalf for 21 years. And on the heels of that an even more important thought:

They have no loyalty to their viewers either. The viewers who stood by FOX news, who watched regularly, THEY need this sign off even more than O'Reilly does. That all they can think about is a "smooth transition as possible" tells me that to these corporate vermin, the customer is nothing, nada, zip. They would switch to promoting gay pedophile yogurt contests in a minute if it would make them more $$$

Glad I stopped watching FOX a while back.

Anonymous Mycroft Jones April 19, 2017 4:03 PM  

@27 Why Right wing entryism doesn't work. I've thought about this. Best answer I can up with is that left wing entryists want to tear down boundaries, to demolish what is there. But they aren't builders. As a right winger trying to infiltrate the left, you will find there is no "there" there. You don't infiltrate a pile of dung; you sweep it out the door. That is the only right wing tactic that has ever worked. Purge it. The Left has also used purges, but their very chaotic nature and incoherent ideologies make the purge less effective of a tool for them.

When the Puritans covenanted with each other and with Jehovah to live by His laws and constitution, they weren't dummies. By having a written document (the Bible) that could not be altered and amended, they had a standard they could use to kick out left-wing entryists, because they wanted to weaken the Law, and to also detect and remove holiness spirals from insane people who wanted to make the Law more strict. If Saint Augustine had showed up in New Haven colony, they'd have flogged him in the public square and put him in stocks. Saint Jereme with his "even married sex is a sin" wouldn't have lasted one day before being run out of town on a rail.

We can keep blaming the Murdoch wives all we want, but at some point it must be admitted: the Murdoch sons do not believe in Fox as a voice of the people. They promoted Megyn Kelly, but had no idea what to do when things fell apart for establishment Republicans. They're getting rid of O'Reilly because they have no real connection to him, and because they figure media faces are like widgets: just get a new one when the old faces fail you.

While it's terrible news for Fox, it's fantastic for people who want to red pill O'Reilly fans.

No. It doesn't work the other way. 6 companies own the media. They want leftists. You would have to produce too much leftist content before positioning yourself somewhere to make a difference. You would sacrifice your credibility and end up benefiting the Left anyway.

The NRA, having been center-right from its origin, could be walked back from the brink.

The Media, by definition, has been a Leftist\Progressive institution from the very beginning. "Infilitrating" that would be pointless, except for sabotage.

That's camera facing, of course. Media is now heavily dependent on IT. That's right-wing/reality based by nature, and they are the ones turning on them. The infiltration in that case, is already plenty deep.

Even independent platforms are going to be vulnerable to advertiser boycotts unless they have some other source of funding.

When Carbonite pulled its ads from Rush Limbaugh, a great many of his fans swore publicly they'd never deal with the company. And indeed, Carbonite's sales dropped, at least for a time. But I've always wondered if Limbaugh lost advertisers as a result because they don't want to get caught up in boycotts from anyone.

@39 you are correct cc: @27

We're already moving toward proper purging by quantifying and carefully logging how unfit for purpose the converged institutions are. The more converged an academic branch is the less likely it is to conform to the scientific method or have replicable studies. The more converged a media org is the less likely coveted 18-34 brackets are to want to touch it, etc etc.

They are using leftover cash and government grants right now to ignore reality, but the leftover cash won't last and we have a unitary government.

What we should be doing that could be productive is to make a big stink about removing converged orgs from government grant lists and making sure libraries are not required to buy the results of fraudulent research and even more fraudulent peer review.

Part of what keeps CNN, Fox news, MSNBC going is bundling by cable companies. You wind up buying access to content that you don't want, or even that you despise. Bundling made sense when cable was analog, but now that the cable companies are ISP's that happen to also deliver some dedicated multimedia aka "TV shows", there's no real reason why TimeWarner or Xfinity couldn't provide an a la carte service.

If they were leaned on by the FCC, they'd do it. Then we'd see just how much people are willing to pay for Rachel Maddow. Some alternative to YouTube is needed to provide more channels to end run around the cable networks.

I'm not a fan of O'Reilly. My book Media Whores was killed by the publisher and I was paid not to write it after Fox News learned that O'Reilly was one of the subjects to whom a chapter was devoted.

Fascinating. I've always wondered what that book was about. I wonder if I'll ever get a chance to read it.

Blogger LonestarWhacko April 19, 2017 7:32 PM  

O'Reilly was an egomaniac. I used to watch him years ago, but finally couldn't stomach anymore. Thing is, arrogance leads to failure. I was never convinced he was right wing.

He'll keep on selling books.....Until he goes the way of Scalia. I'm just getting ready for the hard road ahead.

He won't be able to flee to radio, six months after Hannity's radio show debuted, they figured ''Hey, let's try Bill!''. Epic fail. confused with callers, and the show was carried on the shoulders of his female co-host.
One year (minimum contract) and ''The Radio Factor'' was gone.
I'm guessing his books won't sell all that well anymore either. Good luck Billy, you'll need it.

82 Smoke chucked sage with dragonsblood, its a cure all, I'm kidding smoking is unwise.

I never cared for Bill O, never found him intelligent, interesting or truthful. His radio show fizzled out back in 2004 or 2005.

It is good to know I have another reason to not bother with fox; "My book Media Whores was killed by the publisher and I was paid not to write it after Fox News learned that O'Reilly was one of the subjects to whom a chapter was devoted."

It was wrong of them to block a smarter person than themselves.

I don't care for tv but I am liking what is taking place at alt tech via Gab tv, I am vastly proud of that group. Vastly proud of infogalatic, the burn unit to others are doing great work better than fox every time.

It would be nice if not impressive for the other stars of fox like Tucker, Nigel and Sean, all of whom are reasonable presenters to depart from fox and take their following to another platform to let fox be what it is, a wasteland of soft news intertwined with hard news and some facts.

Micheal Savage for example didn't need radio, he still does his podcasts, talks with Matt Drudge (3/31).

(This regards last week and this week); Just today when everyone spent hours on talk radio about fox it was Cerno, Andrew Torba, Gavin M, PJW and Alex Jones all talking - that was better content, courageous, more interesting than anything Bill O or Greg Guttfield ever did.

As for the women on fox to other outlets they are not Dressed well at all, its like trying to Dress Lesile Jones or the Dunham Horror for a media event; bad makeup, ugly shoes, fugly clothing, ugly hair. Meaning those stylists are pathetic.

You don't get employed by me, I don't spend money in your business, and if I meet you socially you will be rejected and ignored. With us or against us. At first it may seem that they have the numbers and social power to laugh off ostracism by a less socially powerful group, but the tipping point will come very soon and they will want in, not the other way around.

No, it's easy for them to get one or more. But what does that have to do with getting some strange on the side at work?

A long-time favorite quote from Joe Bob Briggs on the topic of co-ed dorms: "Obviously the bureaucrat who wrote this policy has never witnessed an office romance. The girl may look like your idea of warmed-over corned beef hash, but when you spend EVERY DAY with her, there's going to be that moment when the bare shoulder, the funny laugh, or the overheard conversation with her girlfriend when she talks about getting naked at the bachelorette party, suddenly ZAPS you, and you start wondering what's under there."

Tucker Carlson is a better interviewer and comes off as smarter and wiser. He's more of a scalpel than O'Reilly's being a splintered club.

Soros is a true believer. He really believes in liberalism. And thats why he opposed the iraq war and funded the tax haven dumps or called for more fin regs.

He funds these colour revolutions bevause he believes in social justice. Not pretends to believe as many neocons.

The influence certainly is there, and frankly is unavoidable. Trump hasn't been converged, at least yet. He's the first president in your lifetime who hasn't been. It hasn't happened before and won't happen again.

Fox has been a neoconservative propaganda outlet since it began. The only reason it was noticed was because it didn't toe the SJW line and was more or less moderate. That's about to end.

"Tucker Carlson to take over I read.

Which is a definite improvement."

That's an understatement. One of my favorite Tucker Carlson questions was when he was interviewing some Congressman who was shilling for the "Russia hacked the election!" conspiracy theory. It went something like "You know, there are a number of countries that influence American political campaigns, and US government policy, and as far as I can tell, Russia isn't even in the top 10. Which foreign countries do you think have the most influence in US politics?"

No answer, of course.

"Soros is another complicated figure. He is not the figure many on the right make him out to be.

Or Sheldon Adelson, even. Note the way that the (((media))), when they want to mention a major right wing donor as a bogeyman, seem to always default to "muh Koch brothers." Yet Adelson is far more influential. Perhaps Soros gets to be the designated "evil leftist donor" in spite of his tribal status, because they can mention his history of collaboration, and try to push a "Leftists are the REAL not-sees!" narrative? He does appear to serve a particular role in the narrative that is disproportionate to his objective importance, though.

"The jews are not a bloc. But they will help each other out more than all other races abd tribes of man."

Soros made a killing betting against the (((Bank of England))). Either grabbing a bunch of shekels from fellow Overseas Israelis, or they colluded to shift the money his way. The two possibilities have rather different implications as far as his role.

Blogger Francis Parker Yockey April 20, 2017 1:38 PM

Here is my theory. Agree with what you said.

One of the things that makes cutting the chord work is being able to stream on Youtube.

I think the chord cutting is responsible for the crackdowns at youtube. They don't want people free from the Cable and Network TV brainwashing rays.

So they make it look less appealing once Youtube is a left wing wasteland of bs vids, having impoverished all the great content creators.
