This Fox News publicity photo from just a few months ago is now weirdly jarring

This months-old photo seems weird now.

You know that joke about how 10 years ago, we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope, and Steve Jobs? Just months ago, Fox News had Greta Van Susteren, Bill O'Reilly, Megyn Kelly, and Sean Hannity. And while there's no catchy way to say it, today the network has no Van Susteren, O'Reilly, or Kelly — not to mention co-president Bill Shine or founder Roger Ailes.

The last one standing in Fox News' Twitter header of yore is Sean Hannity. Van Susteren has joined MSNBC while Kelly has joined NBC.

O'Reilly and Ailes were ousted from the network in the wake of sexual harassment allegations. Shine resigned Monday.
