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.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. And the best takeaway from her time at NBC? "Jane Fonda was an ass."

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
