Fox News host Bill O’Reilly was given some devastating news this week when a New York appeals court denied him custody of his children, ruling that he was unfit to care for them following a domestic violence dispute with his wife.
According to Occupy Democrats, his 17 year-old daughter and 12 year-old son will stay with his ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy. The court ruled:
“Viewing the totality of the circumstances, there is a sound and substantial basis for the Supreme Court’s determination that it is in the best interests of the children for the mother to be awarded primary residential custody. Particularly relevant in this case are the clearly stated preferences of the children, especially considering their age and maturity, and the quality of the home environment provided by the mother.”
O’Reilly initially lost custody of his children after his daughter told a court psychologist that he “was choking her mom or had his hands around her neck and dragged her down some stairs.”
O’Reilly fired back by calling his wife an “adulterer,” and telling his daughter, “if she spends her time or more time at the mother’s home, it will ruin her life.”
Liberals are now accusing O’Reilly of being a hypocrite, since he has always been an outspoken advocate for family values. What do you think about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
