Last night Bill O'Reilly was not in his chair behind the anchor desk of Fox News's O'Reilly Factor.
The fired host was instead posting about a 20 minute podcast to his website and still standing pat that he IS the victim here.
During his podcast, O'Reilly said, "I am sad that I'm not on television anymore," adding, "I was very surprised how it all turned out. I can't say a lot because there's much stuff going on right now."
If you were expecting a public apology to the women that he paid off in the past to stay silent and avoid a lawsuit, then you would have been disappointed.
He was very vague on details, but stuck to the tune of being the victim. "I can tell you that I'm very confident the truth will come out, and when it does, I don't know if you're going to be surprised but I think you're going to be shaken, as I am," he said. "There's a lot of stuff involved here."
O'Reilly's plan for his podcast is first to make it for members only. Starting next week, if you want to listen to him, you're going to have to pay. So expect a call from your grandma asking you how to "get Bill O'Reilly tuned in on the computer?"
He also wants to have guests on this podcast.
"And then as we develop the website, we'll have guests and things like that, and this will become longer and longer and longer, into a genuine news program," O'Reilly said. "That's the vision right now."
Right now, it's not a "genuine news program"....it's just a guy that was fired from his job for inappropriate behavior, who is claiming he is the victim here.
