Embattled TV personality Bill O’Reilly is calling his firing from Fox News Channel a “political and financial hit job.”
O’Reilly opened up to “Today” anchor Matt Lauer about his dismissal from the cable network earlier this year over sexual harassment allegations. According to the New York Times, FNC paid $13 million to settle claims against O’Reilly.
He told Lauer, “In 42 years, I’ve been in this business, I’ve worked for 12 companies. Not any time have I had any interaction with HR, any complaints filed against me.”
When Matt asked if there were any “self-inflicted wounds here,” O’Reilly responded, “Nobody is a perfect person, but I can go to sleep at night very well knowing that I’ve never mistreated anyone on my watch in 42 years.”
O’Reilly also opened up about his new book “Killing England.” Watch!
