Not too long ago, veteran news anchor Bill O’Reilly was fired from Fox News over unproven sexual harassment claims.
After getting fired, O’Reilly made it clear that he wasn’t ready to retire and that he wanted to find a new broadcasting role.
According to reports, One America News was interested in hiring O’Reilly but has since rescinded their offer.
“We are pulling offer to Bill O’Reilly, it could have paid him more than he made at Fox. We wish him luck,” Herring wrote on Twitter.

Conservative Tribune reports:
In an interview with Mediaite, Herring explained that the company “wanted to move on” because it hadn’t heard back from O’Reilly and wasn’t going to sit around and wait for him to decide forever.
This could be a pretty disastrous turn for O’Reilly’s career. While OAN might not have as large an audience as Fox News, it would have helped O’Reilly maintain his public following while deciding what to do next.
This particular door being slammed in O’Reilly’s face doesn’t mean that he is finished as a political personality, it will just be a lot harder now.
O’Reilly has also flirted with the idea of starting his own network, but nothing has materialized yet.
