Subject: Re: Michelle no longer on the Factor?
I made the decision to quit appearing on the O'Reilly show in response to the poor handling of the Geraldo Rivera matter (the staged "apology" on The Factor was a complete farce). I won't go into details, but please know that your support means a lot to me. You can catch me on other Fox News shows and read my daily blog posts and weekly columns at

Translation: The O'Reilly show fired me for my poor handling of the Graeme Frost matter (my continuing attacks on a 12-year-old kid with traumatic brain injury made me a liability). Having been given the opportunity to resign, I have turned it around on the O'Reilly show and am now performing my Brave Little Topsy act. Can you believe their poor handling of the. . .uh, thing? I am so outraged at this lack of professionalism that I will die here in this snowbank rather than continue to associate myself with such a program.

You can catch me on other Fox shows unless I've really done it to myself this time, in which case I'm calling Howie Kurtz to bail me out again, plus I still have a blog and a syndicated column, so nyeah.
