Fox News moves on without Bill O'Reilly

Fox News moves on without Bill O'Reilly

Stephen Colbert has been a vocal critic of former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly - even though he used to play a character based on him.

Stephen Colbert and "Stephen Colbert" took some time Wednesday night to say goodbye to the man they referred to as "Papa Bear": Bill O'Reilly.

There are also reports that Fox News and O'Reilly paid five women a total of $13 million in the past to keep quiet about his alleged sexual harassment while O'Reilly maintains his innocence.

Stephen Colbert revived his conservative pundit persona on Wednesday to bid a proper farewell to Bill O'Reilly, just hours after Fox News announced it was severing ties with its top-rated host. "Like him or not, a lot of people watched him".

As The Late Show host, Colbert was far more direct in his criticism of the former Fox News star.

Stepping back into his role as Late Show host, Colbert appeased O'Reilly fans who may be upset about his dismissal. "I spent over 9 years playing a character based largely on him - and then 12 months in therapy, to de-bloviate myself". "Shame on you: You failed Bill O'Reilly", he declared. Colbert acknowledged that O'Reilly's TV show was a remarkable success by commercial standards, before adding, "By moral standards, he was a self-righteous landfill of angry garbage".

Colbert's persona then closed by saying, "Stay strong, Papa Bear", before bursting into tears.
