Bill O’Reilly Hints At Launching His Own Network
Making the first stop at his “The Spin Stops Here” tour, O’Reilly addressed the future — Asked whether he planned to start his own network, he said “there could be a new network” that will compete directly with Fox News. “A bunch of people are looking to compete with Fox because there’s a perception” of decline, he said.
“But I am starting my own operation. We are going to do that,” adding that his website, billoreilly.com, will beta test a half-hour newscast “where we will go into a studio and here it will look like ‘The Factor.’ . . . It’s basically an experiment to see how many people are going to want this service. That’s coming and will be here before September in a robust form. But I suspect there will be another network maybe merging with us. There will be a network that rises up because the numbers for Fox are going down.”

“It’s a different network,” he said. “It happens. I’m not going to bad-mouth them. They had a shift in management that coincided with a very well thought-out and financed effort to destroy me. It worked — temporarily. It all had to do with President Trump. In the weeks to come, I’m going to lay all that out in a very public way.”
He spoke about Trump, with whom he drew parallels, blaming the media for some of his problems. “It’s now almost impossible for me to analyze him fairly because he is being treated so unfairly,” he said “I know the same people who came after me are the same people after him. So I know this is the fraud being perpetuated on you, the American voter. The progressive far left will not accept the election.”
“It’s the media driving the hate,” he said. “It’s the media that’s driving the hate.”
