Bill O’Reilly: Fox News ‘Did Not Want’ to Fire Tucker Carlson but ‘There Are Lawsuits Coming’

Bill O’Reilly has spoken out in response to the shocking move by Fox News to “part ways” with star anchor Tucker Carlson.

O’Reilly insists that the network “did not want” to fire Carlson but was forced to oust him as big legal action against Fox looms.

“They did not want to move him out, but there are lawsuits coming in the wake of Dominion,” O’Reilly said during an interview on NewsNation.

“They lost $800 million plus on Dominion and now you have Smartmatic coming up, and two individual lawsuits.

“Actually one filed and one may be filed, and that was the key.”

O’Reilly discussed a lawsuit by Abby Grossberg, a former producer for Tucker’s show.

He said Grossberg had taped “a bunch of stuff” and went to Fox News demanding money or else she would take them to court.

Fox News reportedly told her to go pound sand so she sued.

O’Reilly claims that the tapes may be released to the public and that they are not “good tapes for the Carlson program.”

Secondly, FBI Jan. 6 stooge Ray Epps recently said on CBS’s “60 Minutes” that “Tucker Carlson ruined my life and my family’s life.”

O’Reilly said the appearance was the first step before Epps files a “massive lawsuit against Fox News and Tucker Carlson.

“Faced with that, the board of directors said we gotta clean that up,” O’Reilly said.

“So Dan Bongino was the first domino to fall, even though he wasn’t involved in the Dominion thing and then Carlson because of the pending litigation was harpooned this morning.

“That’s the nature of television news, the most wicked industry in the United States of America.”

O’Reilly then talked about Don Lemon getting the boot from CNN.

“So there is no Tammy Wynette in television – ‘stand by your man’ – or woman,” he said.

“If you get to a point where the corporation feels you’re a liability, Don Lemon was a ratings liability.

“If he had been winning the morning news race he would have never been let go.

“But if you get to a point where you’re a liability or so the moguls think, you’re gone.

“It doesn’t matter how loyal you’ve been, how hard you work, how much money.

“No human being on this planet could have made more money for a company than I did for Fox News.

“No human being on the planet.

“They have a four billion dollar war chest, they started from nothing.

“I was there in the beginning, sixteen years number one, do the math.

“But here you have the slide in all television ratings because Tucker Carlson was driving that train.

“They’re gonna get rid of a few more people and then there’s gonna be a layoff.

“A lot of them are going to lose their jobs.”
