Fox News took another blow when they fired well-known media pundit Bill O’Reilly from their network for sexual harassment allegations just this past month. O’Reilly’s career spans decades with the network. His firing came not long after the firing of Roger Ailes who was also accused of sexually harassing the female talent at the network.
Well, known media anchors and producers have been publically admitting the sexual harassment. They were given far more legitimacy when Megyn Kelly admitted that Roger Ailes sexually harassed her too. The women keep coming out of the woodwork.
Despite being fired he was offered a severance package worth tens of millions of dollars and he immediately started up a podcast to continue his journalistic work. On his podcast show, “No Spin News,” he said the following about his untimely firing for the first time SINCE his firing,
“I am sad that I’m not on television anymore. I was very surprised how it all turned out. I can’t say a lot, because there’s much stuff going on right now. But I can tell you that I’m very confident the truth will come out, and when it does, I don’t know if you’re going to be surprised – but I think you’re going to be shaken, as I am. There’s a lot of stuff involved here.
Now, I can’t say anymore because I just don’t want to influence the flow of the information. I don’t want the media to take what I say and misconstrue it. However you, as a loyal O’Reilly listener, have a right to know, I think, down the lane what exactly happened. And we are working in that direction, okay?”
One viewer commented that it was old school for the media pundit to wish Fox News the best and he said the following,
“Look, I was there for twenty years and six months. We made history, put cable news on the map and were successful all that time. No ebb and flow, just straight up graph. You know, that vehicle was fabulous for me and I said in the beginning that I’m sad, but why wouldn’t I wish them the best? They were there, we performed well for them, and that’s the fact.”

His podcast has been airing on his website www.billoreilly.com and he told the media that he plans on airing longer and longer podcasts over time which eventually will become its own news program. In response to this idea, O’Reilly told his loyal base of followers the following,
“So, I hope you consider it and sign up because we will be here Monday through Thursday with our audio broadcast, and we are working on making it a video display. We’re going to expand the concept on BillOReilly.com, and maybe go into some other networks as well.”
“We really appreciate you guys hanging with us the first week on the ‘No Spin News,’ it’s very nice of you to do that. We think we provide a unique perspective on the news, by the way, and as I said in the beginning of this broadcast, we’re going to expand it. So, we’re going to expand it. A lot of people interested, I’m taking my time. There’s a lot of things that I have to clear up, as I mentioned on Monday when I first came on the air. There’s a lot of things in play, and you’ll know what the deal is.”
Mediaite reported on Monday that so-called media fat cats are considering forming a new conservative network out of frustration that Fox News is going too far to the left. Which could mean that O’Reilly will have a new place in the world of conservative news. With his firing it will give him the opportunity to head and charge whatever news outlet this may be.
These recent developments certainly make it seem as though we have not heard the last of Bill O’Reilly. He has spoken for the first time since his firing, and with his new podcast, it seems we won’t be without him again. For someone who has been in the news world for over thirty years, it would appear he is bouncing back extraordinarily well.
