Speculation continues to run rampant after top cable news star Tucker Carlson “parted ways” with Fox News on Monday.

Dominion? Future lawsuits? Personality disputes? A little of all three? Or something else entirely?

Former Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly – the acclaimed author who once occupied Fox’s prime time weekday evening slot before Carlson took it over – is hinting that an ideological turn may be afoot at the historically conservative network.

“Fox News is a far different place than it was when I spent 20 years there. And by this time next year, it will be a far different place again, of that I am certain,” O’Reilly opined on Monday in a blog post shared via his Twitter account. “The change at Fox News will affect the Republican Party deeply. It will be much tougher for the GOP to get messages out.”

In April 2017, Fox News tapped Tucker Carlson to succeed the cancelled O’Reilly Factor. O’Reilly was forced out by Fox News after alleged instances of sexual harrassment; Carlson reportedly stands accused of fostering a hostile work environment.

FYI: Bill O’Reilly will join 1210 WPHT’s Dom Giordano on-air this Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. EST. You can listen live right here.
