When host Bill O’Reilly was first fired from Fox News, many began wondering where his career path would take him next. Well, as stated, Bill is currently negotiating with one of the greatest TV station operators, the Sinclair Broadcast Group. Namely, Bill is looking forward to starting his own talk show, away from the sexual harassment charges brought up against him over at Fox News.
According to various sources, O’Reilly is still negotiating the conditions of his future employment, with Sinclair thinking of putting him on its local stations, such as Los Angeles’ KTLA, Chicago’s WGN and Philadelphia’s WPHL, and others.
“What you are going to see is a syndicated show, not a news channel,” one source said. “I know they’ve been talking about doing something in syndication and something that could air on WGN.”
If the deal works for everyone, O’Reilly could seal the deal on a two-hour long show, set to begin somewhere around 6 or 7 pm.
“They want to do something anti-CNN, anti-MSNBC,” the source continued, stating Sinclair is looking for a voice the people of America trust, which is why O’Reilly was considered an option.
Sinclair never had any problems criticizing the liberal media for directly and unfairly going after conservatives across America.
“People who tune into Sinclair stations for local news often end up getting some conservative commentary in the mix as well,” stated a Vox article.
“The broadcaster has a history of airing right-leaning segments critical of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama,” Vox elaborated.
Still, much like any other liberal outlet, Vox has also been on the ‘bias’ radar, due to the way their narratives were presented to Americans.
O’Reilly, who got the boot from Fox News at the beginning of this year, got plenty of backlash from liberals for not disappearing out of the TV scene for good. Also, Fox News was blamed of not dealing with the ‘problem’ a little earlier.
“Last January, six months after Fox News ousted its chairman amid a sexual harassment scandal, the network’s top-rated host at the time, Bill O’Reilly, struck a $32 million agreement with a longtime network analyst to settle new sexual harassment allegations, according to two people briefed on the matter,” The New York Times reported.
O’Reilly never once went along with the sexual harassment claims, dismissing them as false from the very beginning
“This was a hit job, a political and financial hit job,” he said this week on NBC’s “Today.”
“My conscience is clear, what I have done is organize a legal team to get the truth to the American people,” he added.
“Nobody’s a perfect person, but I can go to sleep at night very well knowing that I never mistreated anyone on my watch in 42 years.”
Finally, O’Reilly released an affidavit from one of his accusers, where she retracted her allegations and even took an oath saying the two had “resolved all of our issues.”
