Bill O’Reilly Tells Glenn Beck His Firing Was ‘a Hit Job’, Vows to Take Legal Action

Bill O’Reilly is not taking his dismissal from Fox News lying down.

The former “O’Reilly Factor” host sat down with Glenn Beck on Friday for his first interview since his tenure on cable news came to an abrupt end amid allegations of sexual harassment.

O’Reilly explained to Beck that he was the target of an “organized left-wing cabal” that utilized paid protesters camped outside Fox News’ headquarters in New York.

“This was a hit, and in the weeks to come we’re going to be able to explain some of it,” O’Reilly said. “I was target No. 1, and it’s sad. It’s grossly dishonest. I did what I thought I had to do to protect my family. But those days are over. From now on, when I’m attacked, I’m going to take action — mostly legal action. But it’s not going to happen anymore to me.”
