Bill O’ Reilly is finally being let go at fox news after a controversial last few months in the media spotlight.

Earlier in the year, ‘The O’ Reilly Factor’ TV show began using AMTV’s “Hard Hitting and in Your Face” trademark slogan without permission.

The Washington Post Reports:

Fox News has ended its association with Bill O’Reilly, the combative TV host and commentator who has ruled cable-news ratings for nearly two decades and was the signature figure in the network’s rise as a powerful political player.

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.
