Murdoch "absolutely despises" O'Reilly reported In Michael Wolff’s forthcoming biography of Rupert Murdoch, “The Man Who Owns The News,” the author writes that the media mogul has seemed to turn away lately from his cable news network, and isn’t fond its top-rated personality, Bill O’Reilly.

But he is fond of being the top network, and Bill O'Reilly brings in the viewers.
"It is not just Murdoch (and everybody else at News Corp.’s highest levels) who absolutely despises Bill O’Reilly, the bullying, mean-spirited, and hugely successful evening commentator," Wolff wrote, “but [Fox News chief executive] Roger Ailes himself who loathes him.
Poor babies.
Success, however, has cemented everyone to each other."
