Glenn Beck said during his radio show Friday that he would like former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly to join The Blaze.
The interview was the first public one O'Reilly has given since he parted ways with Fox News in the wake of a New York Times report disclosing how $13 million in settlements were paid to several women who accused him of sexual harassment or inappropriate behavior.
"In the weeks to come, we're going to be able to explain some of it", he said. "It has to do with destroying voices [the] far-left doesn't like", O'Reilly groused to Beck.He also denounced far left activist groups as "this crew that terrorizes sponsors and threatens people behind the scenes".More news: Cardinals release reinstated linebacker Daryl Washington
"Bill O'Reilly has been nothing short of a powerhouse in cable news". "It's not going to happen anymore to me".
Charles Herring, CEO of San Diego-based One America Network, told the paper's MediaBlast blog: "Bill O'Reilly has been nothing short of a powerhouse in cable news".
"From now on when I'm attacked, I'm going to take action - mostly legal action", O'Reilly said. "I was target No. 1, and it's sad".More news: Sean Spicer Rebuts Report that Trump Asked Comey to Pledge His Loyalty
Mediablast that O'Reilly said its sources say O'Reilly is being sought by Sinclair Broadcast Group. It's grossly dishonest. I did what I thought I had to do to protect my family, but those days are over.
"My attorneys told me, and we were all shocked".
Mediablast also noted that the four brothers who control Sinclair are tinkering with the idea of transforming WGN into a conservative all-news channel to compete with Fox News. I felt bad not only for me and my staff, but for the viewers and listeners because they really had no idea what had happened.More news: Hospitals in United Kingdom have tech problems after possible large-scale cyberattack
Asked about this week's firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, O'Reilly said there were several reasons President Donald Trump had acted. "I've gotta do it in a way where we don't make any mistakes, and we will". "[White House Press Secretary Sean] Spicer's just weak", O'Reilly said. "It's ramped up to a place where I think this is going to become a major story in the next six months".
