Bill O’Reilly gave his first interview since his firing from Fox News in April on Glenn Beck’s radio show on Friday.
Beck, while stating prior to the interview wouldn’t be about O’Reilly’s firing, nonetheless spoke to the former cable news powerhouse about his unceremonious dismissal.
“Look, the entire ordeal was a hit job, and in the weeks to come, we will be able to explain some of it. It really has to do with destroying voices that the far-left doesn’t like. That’s the general tone,” O’Reilly said.
O’Reilly went on to explain in vague terms “due to the legality,” of how he plans to take on those who engaged in the concerted, targeted effort to take him down.
There’s going to be an exposition soon, but I can’t tell you when, about who exactly this crew is that terrorizes sponsors, threatens people behind the scenes, that pays people to say things. We’re going to name them, and it will be a big story. The left-wing media will downplay the story, but it’s coming. Unfortunately, I was target No. 1. It’s sad for me, for my family and it’s grossly dishonest. From now on when I’m attacked, I’ll take legal action,” he responded.
O’Reilly alluded that a major player behind the attack on him and his advertisers was billionaire and longtime Democratic donor, George Soros
I do think there was something to the womanizing thing, and I also think it goes on at CNN and MSNBC, even though those networks employ mostly homely women. Witch hunt? Yep, but there's also some 'there' there. JMHO
It all depends on so many factors. And, passing a law doesn't change those factors. Most men and women have no control over what they have been taught to believe about the opposite sex. This begins in the home at age 1 and continues through high school (with peer groups) and college. Most men and women have not been taught HOW to control their chemically-driven urges which vary in strength from person to person and over time. Most men and women fall into personality types A and B. Alpha males may have a tendency to try to dominate everyone in the room by any means their upbringing says is allowable. On the other hand an alpha female (or at least SOME alpha females) would find actions by an alpha male to be highly objectionable.
I had to conduct a sexual harassment investigation of a DOD civilian in the 1980s. After interviewing about ten women who had worked for him over a period of several years I found a pattern of behavior which was not allowed by the law and civilian personnel regulations.
This was an honest, productive worker who appears to have been living the behaviors he had learned as a child and young man. These behaviors were acceptable for at least 30 years of his working life. However, a young, raised-under-the-new-rules, female employee objected to him standing over her shoulder and watching her work. She complained to him once or perhaps twice and then filed a sexual harassment complaint.
The investigation showed a pattern of this behavior and as far as I am aware, this 62 year old employee who was more interested in doing the job than changing his behavior was asked to resign, or lost his retirement or something like that.
I remember thinking that he had broken the technical limits of the law but had done no actual harm to anyone. He was a person who was easy to dislike for other unrelated reasons and paid the price for it.
I can't wait for him to name names. The dirt just keeps coming out. What in the hell has happened to our country?
