Millions of Fox News fans were devastated on Wednesday when Bill O’Reilly was abruptly fired from Fox News after numerous sexual harassment claims against him were leaked to the public. Now, O’Reilly has broken his silence about what happened to him.
“Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant news network in television,” O’Reilly said in a statement, according to The Daily Caller. “It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today.”
