Bill O’Reilly was terminated from Fox News in April after Rupert Murdoch’s liberal sons decided to find a way to push him out.
According to O’Reilly, the sexual harassment allegations were false and the entire controversy was nothing more than a liberal hit job.
“Look, this was a hit,” O’Reilly told radio host Glenn Beck — who was also a victim of liberal bias and advertising boycotts while working for Fox News — in the Friday interview on TheBlaze, according to The Daily Caller.
“(I)n the weeks to come, we’re going to be able to explain some of it. And it has to do with destroying voices that the far left and the organized left-wing cabal doesn’t like,” he told Beck, according to The Associated Press, noting that he couldn’t go into specifics for legal reasons.
“(W)e’re going to name them, and it’s going to be a big, big story,” he told Beck. “The story will be downplayed by the left-wing media, but guys like you and talk radio and the internet will get it. It’s coming.”
O’Reilly explained that the sexual harassment attacks were “grossly dishonest.”
“It’s sad for me. It’s sad for my family,” he continued. “I did what I thought I had to do to protect my family. But those days are over. From now on, when I’m attacked, I’m going to take action.”
Beck then joked about O’Reilly being “gravely wronged” and joked that he would be writing a book called “Killing O’Reilly.”
“Well, they did,” O’Reilly responded, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “‘They’ being not the company so much, but when you have organized people being paid to demonstrate outside of your headquarters and all of that, I mean, it’s intense. So, I gotta do this methodically. I’ve gotta do it in a way where we don’t make any mistakes, and we will.”
