As for Brian Williams, in the midst of a six-month suspension for misreporting, O’Reilly predicts a return for NBC Nightly News anchor. “America is a forgiving country,” said O’Reilly. “The pundits may not be, and the ideologues may not be.

Viewers may spending less time in front of the television, but they’re watching more video than ever, according to a new report from eMarketer. U.S. adults will spend an average 5 hours, 31 minutes per day watching video this year, up six minutes from a year ago. Time with digital increased by 13 minutes, to one hour, 16 minutes, while TV viewing decreased seven minutes, to four hours, 15 minutes. “The increase in overall screen time highlights the complexity of today’s media ecosystem,” said Paul Verna, senior analyst at eMarketer. “While so much debate has centered on a supposed tug-of-war between TV and digital video, the reality is that digital video is growing not at the expense of TV, but because video content is more popular than ever.”

Get off television, Sen. Barbara Boxer urged e-cigarette makers in a letter to executives at NJOY, Lorillard, LOGIC, Altria Group and Reynolds. “Many e-cigarette advertisements currently on air make clear companies are trying to target a wider audience than what many in your industry claim is the intended market: those who are looking to quit smoking,” wrote the Democrat from California. “For nearly 45 years, manufacturers of traditional cigarettes have agreed to a ban on television advertising. I merely ask that you restrict advertising of e-cigarettes in the same manner.” In February, Boxer re-introduced the Protecting Children from Electronic Cigarette Advertising Act, which would allow the FTC to enforce a ban.
