GLENN BECK (HOST): One last question on Fox. Something stunning has happened that has never happened before. You leave cable news, and Rachel Maddow is now the number one person on cable news. And MSNBC won cable news for the week. What does that say about -- what's happening there? I know you watch the ratings. Is this beginnings of Fox actually having to really work hard to hold its place?
BILL O'REILLY: They have a problem. Fox News has a problem. There's no doubt about it. Whenever you lose a key person in any industry, competitive industry, sports, media, you better have a plan. And it doesn't look like FNC has a plan. The Trump haters are going over to MSNBC, and there's a lot of them, a lot of Trump haters. So, they're being bolstered by the problems the president is having. But on the Fox News side, they made their decisions. They didn't have to make those decisions, and they really didn't have a plan. You know when you take a guy like me out of the lineup, and I'm doing 5, 6 million views a night, you better have a plan to replace that.
O'REILLY: Tucker Carlson is very talented. He's very good, but I don't see a plan.
