Disgraced former Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly stopped by the conservative cable news show Newsmax TV, and host John Bachman asked him whether or not he’ll return to TV any time soon.
“We’re living in a pretty vicious age now,” O’Reilly said. “Whoever I work for is gonna have to have a lot of courage to stop the far left from attacking sponsors and spreading lies about people.”
Whoever he works for is also gonna have to have a lot of lawyers and deep pockets. O’Reilly was fired by Fox News after it was revealed by the New York Times that he and the network paid five women who had all accused O’Reilly of sexual harassment $13 million to drop the complaints. Soon after, advertisers began pulling their support from The O’Reilly Factor.
