  • O'Reilly says his ouster was 'hit job' and business decision

O'Reilly told Fox's Sean Hannity on his radio program Tuesday that he has launched an investigation into what he believes was a concerted effort to get him ousted from Fox News.

NBC's Today show lent O'Reilly its platform Tuesday morning, and interviewer Matt Lauer began by asking to hear the reason he was given for being forced out. "There are more things to come".

"I can go to sleep at night very well knowing that I never mistreated anyone on my watch in 42 years", he said. Previously, O'Reilly spoke to Glenn Beck for The Blaze via phone, calling his firing an "orchestrated hit" by the far left, and he likewise remained adamant against any claims of wrongdoing while speaking to Lauer.

The Fox News host pushed back, casting his firing as a business decision and appearing to allude to 21st Century Fox's pending acquisition of Sky News in the United Kingdom, which is being reviewed by regulators.

Speaking with the Today show's Matt Lauer, O'Reilly insisted that not only had he never done anything wrong over the course of his four-plus decades in broadcasting, but that Fox's decision to fire him this past April was made exclusively out of "business" concerns.

"You can not win those lawsuits if you're a public figure, you can not win them", he said.

When asked about the harassment claims, O'Reilly insisted he did "absolutely nothing wrong", and that his legal team made it clear to Fox News. "After Roger Ailes went down, there was a flood of lawsuits - a flood - with dozens of people named".

"You don't have this story, Lauer, correct", O'Reilly responded.

O'Reilly said the sexual harassment claims filed against him by five women at Fox News were a "political and financial hit job". "And the sponsored boycott unsettled some people at Fox News", O'Reilly said.

After six months of largely staying out of the public eye, O'Reilly has reemerged in recent days in a series of high-profile interviews while promoting his latest book "Killing England". "They don't look for the truth". This one focuses on the Revolutionary War, as seen through the eyes of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin.
