In a recent interview ousted Fox News titan Bill O’Reilly praised Sean Hannity for fighting back against the leftist cabal that took him down and tried to railroad Hannity as well.
And now in an interview with Newsmax he’s teasing the possibility of coming back on television with a new network that will have to be ‘brave’ in the face of an organized liberal machine bent on destroying major conservative personalities.
Newsmax revealed that upwards of 90% of the respondents in a 200,000 person poll indicated they want O’Reilly back on the air as soon as possible.
Does this means an alternative conservative network will be announced soon?
Here’s more from Newsmax…
Bill O’Reilly might return to the airwaves with a new TV show, he told Newsmax TV.
“I may come back to television, it just depends,” O’Reilly told Newsmax TV’s John Bachman on Thursday.
“We’re living in a pretty vicious age now. Whoever I work for is going to have to have a lot of courage to stop the far left from attacking sponsors and spreading lies about people,” said O’Reilly, who reigned for two decades as the king of cable news until his top-rated show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” was axed by Fox News in April.
O’Reilly, who now hosts a Monday-Thursday podcast on BillOReilly.com, said his new venture has drawn “hundreds of thousands” of fans.
“I may come back to television, or I may continue on the ‘net,” he said. “We tweeted [Thursday] during the [former FBI Chief James] Comey hearings. Three million people were involved with the tweeting that I did on that. This is a very powerful medium, as is Newsmax.”
O’Reilly said his tweets were “flat-out honest. [I’m] not trying to help Trump. Not trying to hurt Comey. Not trying to do any of that. It’s straight. It’s there. You can listen. It’s fact-based, and you can agree or disagree.”
O’Reilly’s latest historical book is called “Bill O’Reilly’s Legends and Lies: The Civil War,” published by Henry Holt.
The book is the newest installment in The New York Times #1 bestselling companion series to the Fox historical docudrama, “Bill O’Reilly’s Legends and Lies,” on the deadliest war in American history. The book chronicles the birth of the Republican Party, the Confederacy’s first convention, the Underground Railroad, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Battle of Gettysburg, and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
