After being fired last week at #Fox News over accusations of sexual harassment by several women, Bill O’Reilly returned to work Monday and ran a 19-minute podcast on his website. He says he’s confident that the truth will eventually come out.

O’Reilly was set to return to Fox News on Monday after a two-week vacation. However, a report by the New York Times revealed that Fox and O’Reilly allegedly paid $13 million to settle sexual harassment allegations made by several women. The controversy caused dozens of advertisers to leave O’Reilly’s show and led to the host’s eventual firing.

O’Reilly misses television

According to a report by USA Today, O’Reilly stated on his podcast, “I am sad that I am not on tv anymore.

I was surprised how it all turned out. I can’t say a lot because there’s much stuff going on right now, but I can tell you that I am very confident the truth will come out and when it does I don’t know if you are going to be surprised.”

He has hosted “The O’Reilly Factor” for 21 years.

O’Reilly discussed the president’s approval ratings

In his podcast, O’Reilly discussed Donald Trump’s 42% approval rating and said that no president has ever entered the office with such negative publicity and hatred compared to other presidents. O’Reilly observed that Trump wasn’t tweeting as much as before, which is a good thing.

Also, O’Reilly mentioned former President Obama’s return to the public eye at a forum in Chicago. O’Reilly speculates that Obama might be the president of the United Nations someday for being good at discussing things.

O’Reilly’s comeback in television

There have been several speculations on where O’Reilly might continue his hosting services, although the sexual harassment allegations against him might hinder major broadcast and cable networks from signing the popular news anchor.

According to reports, these are the few media companies that might be willing to take a chance at O’Reilly.

  • Newsmax Media
  • One America News Network
  • Sinclair Broadcast Group

On the other hand, O’Reilly could always return to radio, wherein he hosted “The Radio Factor” from 2002 to 2009. However, Michael Harrison, a publisher of “Talkers” magazine and a follower of the talk radio business, says that O’Reilly might prefer television where his talents are more suited.
