He is gone, but not forgotten.
Interestingly enough, the book he uprooted from the top spot was written by none other than Fox host Tucker Carlson.
Out with the New
When Bill O’Reilly was ousted from Fox News over sexual harassment allegations, it was generally assumed that his future books would have problems selling.
But not long after his dismissal, O’Reilly stunned everyone when Killing England went to the top spot fairly quickly.
However, now removed from his nightly role at Fox for more than a year, everyone assumed he would no longer have the hold on the public the way he once did.
He also no longer has the audience to tout his book release to, as he did when he was appearing nightly on Fox News.
So when Killing the SS was announced, most pundits assumed he would not have a chance of getting to the number one spot.
That outlook was further enhanced by the fact the man chosen to replace O’Reilly on Fox, Tucker Carlson, held the top spot with his book, Ship of Fools.
Still a Fan Favorite
But while O’Reilly no longer has his nightly spot, he has proven to have a loyal following among conservatives.
A quick look at his Twitter account makes it very obvious conservatives are still very much interested in what O’Reilly has to say.
Besides, he is not completely out of the public eye just yet.
Many of his former co-workers have found a way to give O’Reilly a voice every now and again.
Additionally, O’Reilly is a regular contributor to Newsmax.
Of course, there is also BillOReilly.com, O’Reilly’s personal outlet where he touts his books, as well as his daily opinion piece.
Contrary to previous reports, Mr. O’Reilly is far from dead in the news industry.
