Barney Frank Visits FOX News Channel's

The family in charge of Fox News is confident the network can continue its success without host Bill O'Reilly.  In an internal memo to employees after O'Reilly was let go today, the Murdoch family noted that O'Reilly's ratings made him "one of the most accomplished TV personalities in the history of cable news."  They also pointed out that the decision to part ways with "The O'Reilly Factor" host came after an "extensive review" of sexual harassment allegations against O'Reilly.  Parent company 21st Century Fox enlisted an outside law firm to investigate reports that O'Reilly and the network paid millions of dollars to settle harassment accusations.
