Here’s What They’re Not Saying About Bill O’Reilly

A recent New York Times report has dragged Bill O’Reilly back into the sex-scandal spotlight, claiming “O’Reilly struck a $32 million agreement … according to two people briefed on the matter — an extraordinarily large amount for such cases.”

Additionally, the story reported that complaints against O’Reilly included, “allegations of repeated harassment, a non-consensual sexual relationship and the sending of gay pornography and other sexually explicit material to her, according to the people briefed on the matter.”

It’s important to note that the Times’ story is based on “two people briefed on the agreement and several others familiar with the dispute,” points out Glenn Beck in this video clip from today’s show.

Refresh my memory on the O’Reilly case

  • Last January, Fox Network’s top-rated host, Bill O’Reilly, struck an agreement for an alleged $32 million with former Fox News legal analyst, Lis Wiehl, to settle sexual harassment allegations.
  • According to the Time’s story, the settlement with Wiehl “was at least the sixth agreement — and by far the largest — made by either Mr. O’Reilly or the company to settle harassment allegations against him.” Despite the claims against him, Fox granted O’Reilly a four-year, $25 million per year extension in February.
  • O’Reilly was fired in April.

Glenn’s Take

“Innocent until proven guilty … is that even relevant in American anymore?” said Glenn of O’Reilly’s case. Granted, we all know that Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly go way back, so it doesn’t come as a huge surprise to see Glenn speaking on behalf of his friend. But Glenn — being Glenn — wanted to get to the truth of the matter. He even went so far as to say, “Know this: if I ever find out that the accusations against O’Reilly are true, you will hear it from me first … I have no other loyalty than to the truth.”

Glenn spoke with O’Reilly during an in-depth interview with on this morning’s show, which you can hear more of here. In the video above, Glenn goes over the case, breaking down each claim and airing out some of the details that were not covered by The New York Times’ story including:

  • Two weeks after drafting the suit, Wiehl signed an affidavit saying, “We have since resolved all of our issues. I would no longer make allegations contained in the draft complaint.” As well as, “I have no claims against Bill O’Reilly concerning any of those emails or any of the allegations in the draft complaint.”
  • O’Reilly said he gave a copy of the affidavit as well as copies of love letters written by Wiehl to him to The New York Times but no mention was ever made of either.
  • Megan Kelly, who Glenn says is also a good friend, spoke out on the Today Show, revealing that she “sent an email last year to the co-presidents of her former employer Fox News complaining about the behavior of anchor Bill O’Reilly toward women.”
  • O’Reilly sent three letters, two from Megan Kelly and one from Gretchen Carlson, which you can read here. These letters indicate that O’Reilly had a good relationship with these female coworkers — at least at one time.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"

Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.
