Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to air his grievances at the network.
In his latest social media outburst, Donald Trump has indicated that he will no longer be appearing on any Fox programs because he feels that their negative coverage of his presidential nomination campaign has been unfair.
“Fox News has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future,” the Republican front-runner tweeted on Wednesday (September 23rd).
The ill feeling between Trump and the Fox network began with his comments about Fox’s political commentator Megyn Kelly that he made after the first Republican primary debate. Trump was unhappy at Kelly’s line of questioning about comments he had made about women in the past, and in a later interview with CNN, he said she had “blood coming out of her eyes… blood coming out of her wherever.”
The often controversial right-wing news commentator is currently embroiled in a Brian Williams-esque scandal of alleged false war reporting.
In another controversy regarding a journalist alleged to have embellished his war reportage, Fox news host Bill O’Reilly continues to come under fire for apparently over-exaggerating the danger he was in while covering the 1982 Falklands crisis in his book four years ago.
A former CBS colleague of O’Reilly’s, Eric Engberg, claimed in a lengthy Facebook post that they were not really in a combat zone, instead being caught up in little more than “routine reporting on a demonstration that got a little nasty.”

It's not goodbye, just see you later.
Rest in peace, The Colbert Report. Stephen Colbert’s pretend conservative pundit was so close to the real thing that at times we tended to forget it was all satire. Twitter certainly seemed to forget pretty often. But after almost ten years, the joke is almost over.
Will we finally see the real face of Stephen Colbert?
Colbert will host his final show on Comedy Central, before taking over The Late Show from David Letterman. It was a good run, a character that started a life of its own, after being modelled on a real, but equally outrageous public figure – Fox’s Bill O’Reilly. In fact, O’Reilly was keenly aware that the joke was on him – and he did NOT appreciated. The Fox News Channel icon once joked that the next book in his Killing series would be Killing Colbert. He is yet to fulfil that threat, though, while Colbert is steadily moving up.

After the launch of President Obama's new initiative, Bill O'Reilly advices him to have gangsta rappers "knock it off."
On Thursday, President Obama launched the new "My Brother's Keeper" initiative. The program asks for public and private entities to develop more opportunities to aid young minority men. The initiative would also breakdown social conditions which hinder them such as impoverishment and imprisonment with disproportionate numbers.

The 'JFK' director thinks that there were greater powers at work when the late president was assassinated, powers that go unmentioned in the upcoming National Geographic docu-drama
Killing Kennedy is the National Geographic Channel's summarised view of the assassination of former president John F. Kennedy, a view that Director Oliver Stones thinks is skewed and hides a clear truth. The Rob Lowe-starring docu-drama will air on the network later this month, prior to the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination, and when it does, Stone won't be tuning in.
Stone [L] and Bill O'Reilly [R] share different views on the Kennedy assassination
In a recent discussion with The Hollywood Reporter, the acclaimed moviemaker gave some of his own views on the death of the iconic president, admitting that he, like many others, believes that there is more to his assassination that a disturbed and disgruntled lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald. Based on the book co-written by conservative Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, Stone conceded that their view on the assassination opens up more questions than it does answer them.
The actor portrays the late president in the National Geographic Channel's 'Killing Kennedy'
The 50th anniversary of the tragic assassination of John F. Kennedy will take place later this month and to mark the occasion there will be no shortage of programmes dedicated to the late president going to air over the course of the month. One of them, the National Geographic Channel's Killing Kennedy, stars Rob Lowe in the title role, a role that was no easy task preparing for.
Lowe stars along with Ginnifer Goodwin, who plays his wife Jacqueline Kennedy, and Will Rothhaar as Lee Harvey Oswald. Based on Fox News host Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's book by the same name, the one-off show will chronicle the events that eventually culminated with the assassination of the United State's 35th president on 22 November, 1963.
Mixing archive footage with recreated scenes, the show will look to understand the assassination and its aftermath better. But taking on such an icon role was no walk in the park for Lowe, as he explained to USA Today, stating that this kind of role is even "more difficult when you play an icon that people remember as well as they do Kennedy and are emotionally invested in his memory as they are in Kennedy."

Bill O'Reilly has hinted he may be about to come out in favor of gay marriage.
Billy O'Reilly, gay marriage: two things that don't exactly go hand-in-hand. However, the Fox News and conservative pundit made waves last night for slamming the arguments AGAINST gay marriage. "I didn't hear anything articulated that was particularly persuasive," anchor Megyn Kelly said on Tuesday's O'Reilly show. "I agree with you 100 per cent," replied the host.
"The compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals," O'Reilly - who was always assumed to be against gay marriage - explained, "That's where the compelling argument is. 'We're Americans. We just want to be treated like everybody else.' That's a compelling argument, and to deny that, you have got to have a very strong argument on the other side. The argument on the other side hasn't been able to do anything but thump the Bible."
O'Reilly also noted "...next week I've got something that Kelly's really not going to like," which led many viewers to assume O'Reilly would be coming out in favour of gay marriage. "The gay marriage thing, I don't feel that strongly about it one way or another. I think the states should do it... New York has it, I'm fine with it. I want all Americans to be happy, I do," he said.

The producer of NatGeo's drama Killing Lincoln says John Wilkes Booth - the man who assassinated the 16th President of the United States - could be the poster child for the Tea Party.
Executive producer Erik Jendresen shocked television critics attending the Winter TV Press Tour 2013 this week, suggesting that Lincoln's murderer could have represented the right-wing political group. Speaking on-stage at the event, Jendresen argued that Booth was not mad and that his viewers were pretty common when he assassinated Lincoln - considered to be one of the America's greatest ever Presidents. "This is not the act of somebody who can easily be dismissed as a psychopath, so that it's easy to understand - 'Oh well, he was crazy.' This is a man who believed what still probably 20 percent of this country still believes." Killing Lincoln is a two hour special based on the book of the same name written by Fox News star Bill O'Reilly.
Jendresen continued to make political comparisons between Lincoln's era and the modern age, musing, "If you look at the politics of the time, and the epithets that were being hurled at Lincoln, there is a feeling in the nation that is not dissimilar [to the Obama years] - the idea today of this imperial presidency.[of] somebody who is essentially going to declare himself king and take over," he continued."
On last night's (Nov 29) edition of The O'Reilly Factor, host Bill O'Reilly distanced himself from the masses and admitted that he is in no way a fan of Korean singer Psy's massive YouTube hit 'Gangnam Style.'
Describing the singer as "a little fat guy from Pyongyang or some place," O'Reilly invited on to the show Fox News's resident 'psychiatrist' Keith Ablow to deconstruct the show, whilst also making perfectly clear that Psy is not Elvis Presley, nor will he ever be anything life him regardless of the Korean (that's South Korea, not North Korea like O'Reilly seems to think) current success.
The two spoke on the hot topic for about five minutes, with the conservative commentator and Ablow deconstructing and disagreeing with all of the hit song. At one point, Albow made the assertion that 'Gangnam Style' appeals to the masses because it is about "nothing," and that the song was mostly "without intelligible words" (and we kind of see his point).
