O’Reilly was let go from Fox news last Wednesday.
The former “O’Reilly Factor” host will launch his “No Spin News” podcast on Monday night, April 24, 2017. “I was very surprised how it all turned out”, he said. “I can’t say a lot, because there’s much stuff going on right now”, O’Reilly said of his ouster.
Mercedes and Infiniti weren’t the only defectors to return to the 8 p.m. fold; other sponsors who had walked out on O’Reilly only to come back on the first night of Carlson’s new hour were: Jenny Craig, Bayer (Claritin), Untuckit, Old Dominion Freight and ancestry.com.
“There’s a lot of stuff involved here”, O’Reilly continued on his podcast.
O’Reilly explained that he wouldn’t say anymore because he didn’t want to give the media any more ammunition to use turn against him.
“For those of you tuning in. expecting to see someone different in this anchor chair, I know the feeling well”, Carlson said at the beginning of “Tucker Carlson Tonight”.
However, the “Loyal O’Reilly” listeners deserve to know the truth and he and his team are now working in that direction.
Raise your hand if you knew it was only a matter of time before Bill O’Reilly had another job.
O’Reilly was on vacation in Italy when Fox announced they would cancel his show, The O’Reilly Factor – as well as the announcement of ensuing $25 million payout O’Reilly will receive. Time slots aren’t haunted, and many of those who fled the “Factor” simply re-allocated that spend in Carlson’s 9 p.m. show and elsewhere on the Fox News schedule.
However, O’Reilly said, “no president has ever entered office with as much negative publicity and hatred directed toward him as Donald Trump”.
Now Mr. O’Reilly, on the other hand, was sacked from Fox News BUT will be given a “golden parachute” severance of a reported $25 million. We made history, put cable news on the map, and were successful all that time. He talked about the reported “tax cut”.
Carlson’s program then proceeded to follow a template of the exact same demonizing, disingenuous rhetoric that has characterized his style for years and Fox News’ strategy for decades.
