"We have a sport in the United States called let's destroy the famous person," O'Reilly told Letterman. "That's what happened to him. I think NBC should bring him back. I think they will bring them back."

Nancy Snyderman – who breached voluntary quarantine after she was exposed to the Ebola virus while on assignment in Liberia – has decided to leave NBC News.
"I stepped out of the OR a few years ago and it is now time for me to return to my roots, so I am stepping down from my position as Chief Medical Editor at NBC News," Snyderman announced Thursday.
"Covering the Ebola epidemic last fall in Liberia, and then becoming part of the story upon my return to the U.S., contributed to my decision that now is the time to return to academic medicine," she said in a statement issued to PEOPLE by the network. "I will be shortly taking up a faculty position at a major U.S. medical school. More needs to be done to communicate medicine and science to our viewers and citizens, especially in times of crisis, and with my experiences in the field and on air, that is going to be a priority for me."
