Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly called his ouster from Fox “a hit” and vowed that he soon will be coming out with his own counterattack.
“This was a hit,” O’Reilly told Glenn Beck of TheBlaze on Friday in his first interview since he left Fox News.
“In the weeks to come, we’re gonna be able to explain some of it. It has to do with destroying voices that the far left and the organized left-wing cabal doesn’t like,” he said. “That’s the general tone. I can’t get specific. There’s a lot of legality here.”
O’Reilly said he will name names when the time comes.
“There’s going to be an exposition soon, but I can’t tell you when,” he said. “About what exactly this crew that goes in and terrorizes sponsors, that threatens people behind the scenes, that pays people to say things. We are going to name them and it’s going to be a big, big story.”
O’Reilly, who was the ratings king at Fox News Channel, said he was the first target of the cabal, and hinted that in future cases, he will fight any smears against him.
“Unfortunately, I was target No. 1. It’s sad. It’s sad for me. It’s sad for my family. It’s grossly dishonest. I did what I thought I had to do to protect my family. Those days are over. From now on when I’m attacked, I’m going to take action, mostly legal action,” he said.
O’Reilly offered a hint at who was working against him.
“I’ll point you to an article that was very, very seldom seen this week about nine corporations, big corporations that are now being targeted by organized left-wing groups funded by George Soros because they allegedly are profiting from President Trump’s immigration stance. You can Google the article. That gives you your roadmap,” he said.
A story in Wednesday’s Washington Free Beacon outlines efforts by the Center for Popular Democracy to target nine companies it claims are profiting from Trump’s policies and says Soros-aligned groups are supporting the effort.
O’Reilly also criticized the “vicious and evil” media in which accuracy has become a casualty.
“This is a fact,” he said. “In American journalism right now, very few are seeking the truth. It’s not what the press is doing. They don’t seek the facts to back up what happened.”
O’Reilly’s comments about the effort to secure his downfall are similar to those voiced by conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, who, as reported by Western Journalism, said April 20 that O’Reilly’s ouster was the fruit of a conspiracy.
“The left cannot beat Fox News in the arena of cable news. The media, the left cannot beat Fox News. The only option they have is to destroy it,” Limbaugh said. “The standard operating procedure for the left is not to level the playing field but to close it. It’s to deny participation on the playing field, not level it. No tolerance. No fairness. Their objective is to destroy the opposition because they can’t beat the opposition in the arena of competition where both entities are battling — and that would be, in this case, cable news.”
