  •  60 minutes of a test pattern (7+ / 0-)

    O'Reilly evidently thinks that Fox will show 60 minutes of test pattern 5 nights a week, and those radio stations will broadcast nothing but static.  Apres moi, le deluge.

    What would happen, of course, is that some other conservative would fill those slots and all those jobs would continue.

    Which is too bad really,  A test pattern would convey more information than an O'Reilly broadcast.

    A new birth of freedom..

      Actually the Fox "person" just might benefit, financially. They would hire a new talking head, and pay him/her/it far less than it costs to have BillO. Since, as far as I can tell from the Fox viewers I know, the audience simply leaves Fox on all the time they might not lose much in terms of viewership, or perhaps only a small amount in ad revenue. If their newbie is a hit they might even gain some, plus the savings of not paying as much. And the added benefit of encouraging new, younger talent. They would never be brave enough to simply can BillO and take their chances on such a scenario happening, but if BillO forces them to they could well benefit. And not want him back....

      If your internal map of reality doesn't match external conditions, bad things happen.--Cambias
