O`Reilly Comes With an Unexpected Announcement About the Scandal
Fox News have had a tough time lately following the firing of their iconic host Bill O’Reilly. It all started with the article by The New York Times that claimed how 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, paid $13 million to five women to remaint silent about being allegedly sexually assaulted by O’Reilly.
Even though O’Reilly’s reputation remained fairly untarnished, advertisers left the network forcing Fox News to replace O’Reilly with Tucker Carlson. Shortly after O’Reilly’s scandal, Sean Hannity was also accused of sexual harassment but the woman later denied these accusations against Hannity.
O’Reilly remained quite silent after the removal, but he has announced that he will be returning to his “No Spin Podcast” on his website on Monday to talk about the scandal.
Addressing his viewers, the former personality expressed regret for not being on television anymore and made a major announcement of what will follow:

Below are Bill’s remarks:
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?
Following his dismissal from Fox, O’Reilly made a statement on April 19 in which he said that “It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today.”
It still remains to be seen what O’Reilly plans to do to fight back, but it is no secret that it was liberals who worked against O’Reilly and according to files procured by The Blaze, the progressive website Media Matters was responsible for the advertisers fleeing the network.
