"The entire ordeal was a hit job, and in the weeks to come, we will be able to explain some of it", the former "Factor" host told Glenn Beck in an interview Friday.

O'Reilly, let go following reports that the network paid almost $13 million to women who accused the talking head of sexual harassment, gave his first public interview Friday - with his one-time colleague Glenn Beck.

"It has to do with destroying voices that the far left and the organized left-wing cabal doesn't like", he said. He said the group "terrorizes" sponsors, "threatens people behinds the scenes" and "pays people to say things". Many of his advertisers dropped the program following a New York Times report about the allegations. "So, if that's what they felt was best for the company, I'm not going to hammer them". "We have received thousands of requests to add Mr. O'Reilly to our team", Charles Herring, CEO of San Diego-based One America Network, told Kaplan in an email. He discussed taking legal action against those who wronged him, and just as O'Reilly claimed on his first podcast that "the truth will come out", he said the story is not over.

Beck followed up by asking how O'Reilly would present this explanation, and the disgraced talking head said there would be an "exposition" soon. Unfortunately, I was target No. 1. It's grossly dishonest. I did what I thought I had to do to protect my family, but those days are over.

"My attorneys told me and we were all shocked ..." "They being not the company so much, but when you have organized people being paid to demonstrate outside of your headquarters and all of that, I mean, it's intense". In his studio, he has this crew around him at Fox and as he's walking off the studio, he looked at one of the folks working there and he says, 'Wow, you have really pretty hair.' And she filed a sexual harassment suit because he said she had pretty hair ...

O'Reilly also attacked the press, saying some media outlets are as "evil as it gets". What you get is, 'We're gonna take him out.
