On Wednesday, Fox News officially severed ties with its star host Bill O'Reilly.

Known for his combative personality, the conservative commentator has dominated cable news for almost two decades.

Daniel Holloway, senior TV writer for Variety, joins host A Martinez to talk about the aftermath of the shake-up.
