Bill O’Reilly’s reign as the undisputed king of cable news could be coming to an end as pressure on the Murdoch family to decide what to do with the embattled host intensifies.

The Daily Intelligencer’s Gabe Sherman reports that three “sources with knowledge of the discussions” have said that the Murdochs are leaning toward dumping O’Reilly, who is currently on vacation — though no final decision has been made yet.

Sherman, who literally wrote the book on the inner-wokings of Fox News, claims James and Lachlan Murdoch want O’Reilly out, while their father, Rupert, is still holding out hope of keeping the top rated host.

According to the insiders, Lachlan was initially on his dad’s side, but is moving toward’s James’ direction in recent days.
