O'Reilly surprised by Fox exit, says truth will come out

O'Reilly surprised by Fox exit, says truth will come out

Former Fox News' host Bill O'Reilly will be back tonight with a free podcast. The podcast represents the first opportunity O'Reilly has had to speak publicly about the controversies that led to Fox News paying him a rumored $25 million to go away.

"I wish only the best for Fox News Channel", O'Reilly said in a statement on his website. "I was very surprised on how it all turned out". "There's a lot of stuff involved here", he continued. I don't want the media to take what I say and misconstrue it. The investigation revealed that both O'Reilly and 21st Century Fox, the parent company to Fox News, had paid a total of $13 million in settlements to five women in exchange for their silence about sexual harassment allegations against the anchor.

Tucker Carlson will sit down with Caitlyn Jenner on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" late Monday in what will be his first night replacing Bill O'Reilly in the 8 p.m.

The long-time host of "The O'Reilly Factor" was forced out last week, following reports of sexual harrassment allegations.

O'Reilly, who was on vacation in Italy last week, issued a statement saying it was "tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims".

As for television, the Fox News Channel was loyal to Mr Trump's candidacy throughout the 2016 campaign, as well as hosting pundits who called other news coverage of the bombastic candidate as "fake news".

O'Reilly categorically denied the accusations made in the Times' story and lamented his ouster as the price of fame. "When we chose to remove our ads from O'Reilly, we reassigned them to other Fox News programming", said Donna Boland, manager of corporate communications for Mercedes-Benz USA, via an emailed statement.
