It’s been two months since Bill O’Reilly was fired from Fox News after a series of sexual harassment claims against him came to light. Now, he is making his return to the spotlight, and Fox isn’t going to like what he has to say.
CNN reported that O’Reilly spoke out at a show in Westbury, New York last weekend to say that the truth about his firing is about to come out.
“In the weeks to come, there will be a bunch of news stories that will explain what happened and why it happened,” O’Reilly said. “It’s pretty grisly. It’s pretty nasty. It has to do with far-left progressive organizations that are bent on destroying anybody with whom they disagree, including the president.”
“I can’t really get into depth about why I left Fox and what’s going to happen now,” he explained Saturday, “because my lawyers are pleading with me, ‘For once in your life, O’Reilly, could you just shut up?’”
These comments were made during a stop on O’Reilly’s “The Spin Stops Here Tour,” which he has been doing with conservative comedian Dennis Miller since 2011. O’Reilly shocked his fans during the show by suggesting that he is about to start his own network, which would be a direct rival of Fox.
“There could be a new network,” O’Reilly said. “A bunch of people are looking to compete with Fox because there’s a perception of decline.”
“I am starting my own operation. We are going to do that,” he added, revealing that he will soon be rolling out a ‘beta-test’ for a newscast.
“We will go into a studio and here it will look like ‘The Factor,’” O’Reilly continued. “It’s basically an experiment to see how many people are going to want this service. That’s coming and will be here before September in a robust form. But I suspect there will be another network maybe merging with us. There will be a network that rises up because the numbers for Fox are going down.”
