August 10, 2017

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly has launched his first “No Spin News” online show with a format that closely follows the brand of conservative politics and pugnacious punditry that made him one of the most popular voices on U.S. television.

The 30-minute show, which debuted on Wednesday, featured the ousted Fox News personality analyzing the war of words between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and his take on the FBI raid on the home of former Trump aide Paul Manafort.

“North Korea has been a pain in the butt for decades,” O’Reilly said. As for Trump, he said, “He’s not going to take any guff from North Korea, but he’s not going to do anything unilaterally.”

O’Reilly was fired from Fox News in April after 20 years following allegations of sexual harassment. He called the claims unfounded, but he had previously paid five women some $13 million to settle lawsuits.

Since then, O’Reilly has been producing daily podcasts on his website, for which members pay a yearly fee of $49.95 for full access to his material and the chance to ask questions and submit comments.

His “The O’Reilly Factor” show on Fox News was the most-watched prime-time cable news show on U.S. television, averaging some 4 million viewers a night.

  • EC

    OAN has become my go to news source. Ledger and Wheeler are my top favorite.

  • EC

    Bill is great. Fox News to a good lose with him gone. Do your thing Bill.

  • louigi

    At the rate they are going, fox will win the race to the bottom. OANN is the only place to get the news with “NO SPIN”!!!

  • Chris m

    We are happy and content with our OAN delivered via cable to our home. The no nonsense trip around the news world with the format they have is perfect, unbiased, as is. Please do not change your style. To all of the team at OAN, you are the daily sincere, USA loving meat and potatoes news organization that we love.

  • nevertrump

    We need to get rid of that c-cksucker Hannity next.

    • Leroy

      You are the only c-cksucker spouting your libtard stupidity cupcake. You are the one needing riddance. It’s coming too.

  • AllAmericanTDS

    Never cared for him at FOX either.

  • FLLoeffler

    This site has one of the best news programs on DirectTV channel 347. A great watch!

  • harrydweeks

    Hey Bill , Faux did you a favor. They have gone downhill fast since your departure. Just waiting for you, Bolling, Hannity , Shine and Bannon to start new network.

  • Just Saying-2

    Haha. Retire Bill. Nobody cares.

    • louigi

      About your opinion.

  • ReasonableUnreasonable

    It’s nice to have enough money to pay off all the woman you want to sexually harass.
    If you have enough money you don’t have to go to jail for a few years.
    This is the No Spin Zone.

    • NileSwanee in IL

      I wonder how much money he has paid out I’ve heard $13,000,000.00 but I’ve also heard he paid one women around $30,000,000.00 If this is true I think I would try to find a cheaper hobby.

      • DefendTheFaith

        Boys will be boys, lol but, Does it matter? Isn’t it more important the good that he does than, the bad you perceive him to be?

        • Rosebud Thorn

          O’Reilly is a Catholic maybe he buys indulgences from the church so he can go out and sin a little and still go to heaven. The Catholic church still does sell indulgences don’t they, if you have enough money it is OK to sin. The church has to make money some how. lol Maybe you can buy your way into heaven after all.

  • Guest123

    When I can tune in for his propaganda for free I’ll try it

    • louigi

      Nate! Head for the border, Taco.

  • Mike Watson

    Why doesn’t OANN hire him? Ok, should have read other comments 1st. But if you could work it out…

  • Not A PC Guy

    Bill is proof that zombies are real. The Great Bloviator needs to stay dead.

  • S. Grubbs

    Whatever Resist Tyranny is, he is not a liberal. He just sees Bill for what he is based on what Bill does. Consider doing a little research to avoid looking ignorant.

  • Timothy Keller

    Why don’t we receive money every time we post a comment ?

    • nevertrump

      FreedomFaggot does. He’s a OAN company piss boy, paid moron.

      • Leroy

        Poor little gay troll. Your idol isn’t an OAN employee you idiot. LOLOLOL!!!! You only wish you had half the brains he has.

  • sweptarea

    “Ex-Fox News host O’Reilly debuts ‘No Spin News’ webcast”

    To an audience of dozens.

  • DangerousDeplorable

    I used to like Bill but after watching for a couple of years I realized he was an arrogant RINO. He always interrupts his guests when he doesn’t agree with them. Tucker is refreshing change from the tired “Factor”. I also got tired of him hawking his books, tours, and Factor products. Who wants to pay $20 for a coffee cup?

  • Max

    I used to like Bill, but my gut tells me he voted for Øbama in 2008, and I changed my mind on him.

  • Charles Blakemore

    Doctors Without Borders, Autism Speaks, The Fuller Center for Housing, Independence Fund, NYC Coalition for the Homeless
    These are just a few of the charities Mr. O’Reilly and his $85M (million) supports and donates to. Because of him, a lot of corrupt judges have been removed from their benches. Because of him, most of the nation has enacted “Jessica’s Law”. Because of him, a lot of maimed and paralyzed veterans have Track Chairs for greater mobility and freedom.

    There have been countless numbers of times Mr. O’Reilly has stood up for the voiceless and oppressed. None of what he says is empty rhetoric and, he says what he means and, means what he says. The man walks the walk daily while the rest of you complain and crybaby about him. To you, I would say, put up or shut up. Let me see you. Let the world see you walk the same walk as this fine American has.

    Fox News has shot themselves in the foot several times over the past few years. Their channel is worse from it as a result. They have let allegations appear as truth destroying a lot of great reputations. Finally, while I like the guy, they replaced Mr. O’Reilly with Tucker Carlson. Really?

    • sweptarea

      Carlson is a one-trick pony and the act is wearing thin. Haven’t tuned in in months.

      • Not A PC Guy

        You’re missing out then. Tucker is a really refreshing change from Book Dealer Bill and his constant assertions of how right he is and how wrong everyone else is. Egotists SUCK.

        • Charles Blakemore

          Tucker has about as much personality as a limp washrag. Tucker chooses people he is sure to win against. He hasn’t yet chosen a formidable adversary. He’s too much of a coward.

          • DefendTheFaith

            With a thinking process such as yours, you should seek the help of a mental health expert that provides care for a person thinking with a disordered mind.

          • Charles Blakemore

            You know, I went to a shrink once. Drove him absolutely crazy. I used to be alone, now the voices keep me company. Now, for you? You don’t need any mental health expert. Being braindead disqualifies you.

          • louigi

            Did one of the voices tell you to GFY yet??

          • ReasonableUnreasonable

            You have as much charisma as a hemorrhoid. LOL LOL

          • ShortSweet

            I like Tucker. Actually, it’s about the only show I watch now. I got sick of dodging Juan Williams, Tinkerbell Shepherd Smith, and Geraldo.

          • louigi

            Who do your suggest he invite sparky?

        • ShortSweet

          I too got sick of the book fair but it’s not just O’Reilly. Everybody except the grounds keeper at FOX has written or is currently writing a book ……. and I hear the grounds keeper might be looking for a publisher too.

        • FLLoeffler

          Tucker is good buy at 78 years old I get tired of listening to two people trying to out talk each other.

    • Not A PC Guy

      Gee, that’s great. Now if he just wasn’t such an ARROGANT ADZWHOLE!!!

      • Charles Blakemore

        Does it matter? Isn’t it more important the good that he does than, the bad you perceive him to be? Kind of like the pot calling the kettle black. Everyone, me included, has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

  • oldwoman159

    I joined, only guy that just gives the facts…………………..

  • jojo7373

    Us poor folks can’t afford $50; always looking out for the folks, or so he said.

  • Dale McGeorge

    I am here because of the sudden FOX shift to the left and the fact that most of the commentators that I enjoyed watching are no longer there. OAN could do a lot worse that adding these Conservatives to their network in some capacity. I imagine that the few remaining conservative commentators will be moving on soon as well. It could be a quick way for OAN to jump into the number one spot that FOX has fallen from very swiftly. O’Riley, Bolling, Lehren, Sean are all winners. No Megan please! lol

    • sweptarea

      What’s a ‘Megan’ ?

      • David Wilson

        He meant Megyn.

    • Walter Nobel

      As the conservative shows are replaced by liberal garbage on FOX I will just take that time to watch OAN. Now it’s about 40% Fox to 60% OAN. Used to be 90% on Fox.

    • louigi

      Don’t forget Judge Jeanine. Smart, articulate and hot!

  • Bill O’Reilly is finding out that no one will hire him because of his sexual harassment charges. Bill O’Reilly believes that sexual harassment is accepted in the work place. Look what Roger Allies did. Someone finally came out a accused Roger Allies for sexual harassment an look what happen to him. Reality has set in for Bill O”Reilly he doesn’t like it because he’s not the big dog any more. He’s finding out that other cable news stations don’t want him. Bill O’Reilly will never admit that he did anything wrong. Because he believes in the “good ole boys club”. So now he’s going to do his own pod casts and hope that people will tune in. Bill O’Reilly has to promote his books and his shows with Dennis Miller. When he was at Fox that’s all he did. I don’t believe that all of his premium member are going to buy into his plan. Reality has set in for Bill O’Reilly he doesn’t like to be on the unemployment line. Bill O’Reilly has no one to blame but him self. All of his hard work got him fired because he thought he was better than everyone else and he thought that women should not do anything when he is sexually harassing women. Face Bill you just don’t like women.

    • RuthAnn40

      Very well put.

  • BigC

    I miss Bill. Like to see him on OANN. If you commentators want someone who tells it like it is and is correct 95% of the time, listen to President Trump.

    • Elvis

      I liked Bill’s show but he was getting arrogant in his old age. I voted for Trump but I would rate his diplomatic skills as a 1 on a scale of 10. He could be so much more effective if he didn’t act such a jackass so often.

  • John Sparrolini

    OANN, HIRE HIM

    • KD

      He’s already talked to them about that and he’s responded to one of OANN’s newscaster that 1) He’s content during his webcast, and 2) after the way Fox Nws and the Murdoch’s treated him about the false allegations he’s not looking to get back on TV any time soon. He’s keeping his options and lines of communication with other news sources open. For now, his lawyers are going after Media Matters and other liberal organizations who set this whole “sexual allegations” fiasco up to try and hurt him — as they are doing with all Conservative news people on the air. They tired to get Sean Hannity fired from Fox and failed winning a lawsuit against these worthless scum. Now, they’re going after Eric Bolling on Fox and looks like they are in for another lose for the liberal left. Can’t wait till Mr. O’Reilly gets done pummeling these scumbags — they’ll wish they never heard the name Bill O’Reilly!!

      • sweptarea

        “…For now, his lawyers are going after Media Matters and other liberal organizations…”

        O’Reilly and his lawyers need look no further than the owners of the Fox network.

        • constitutiononly

          Seems to me, with the management change, Fox network is trying to get rid of all conservatives and America-First presenters.

          • FLLoeffler

            Soon Fox will be all women attorneys!

          • Mr.Jim

            Not a problem.
            Two other news networks.
            NewsMax TV and OAN. (One America Network)

          • Elvis

            It looks like they are trying to get rid of those who commit sexual offenses. Look at the millions O’Reilly paid to so many women to settle their claims. To me Bill was a hypocrite. He frequently talked about his Catholic upbringing but he ends up having to pay millions to women who sued him for sex offenses. And his wife, the second one I believe, sued him for physical abuse. Those aren’t traits that you learn in Catholic schools (bad priests aside).

          • Stephie

            Maybe he paid them off to try and save his reputation from the harm false alligations cause in life. Ha ha…..i do have a hard time believing all these people, men on Fox are getting fired for the same offence. Seems fishy. Murdocks are sleezes themselves from what ive seen in the blogs.

    • Mr.Jim

      They have a great 8PM show already…….The Daily Ledger.

  • Peter G

    $50 bucks, How much will you pay for my thoughts? LOL

    • KD

      Don’t pay for ignorant fools so don’t ask!

  • ann rand

    It won’t be long until most of the Fox Cable viewers will move on.. We are just waiting for people like O’Reilly , Charles Payne and Eric Bolling to begin their own programs…. It has become increasingly obvious that the Murdock Family are taking Fox to a place where we don’t want to go..We are thankful for OANN and AWE..

    • Charles Blakemore

      Or start their own cable news channel.

      • sweptarea

        Aye to that, C.B.

    • Just Saying-2

      I’ve been gone from fox for a year now. Loving OAN. 4 times as many stories per hour without a dumbass pundit telling me what I should think.

      • Walter Nobel

        I have to agree. We watch OAN and really like their presentation on the news. Better than Fox.
        Still watch some of Fox News. Hannity, Jeanine, Carlson, a little bit of the 5. I can see OAN taking over the conservative block in the future.

      • ann rand

        Have you tried their Sister Station , AWE ? I enjoy it a lot, too..Lots of interesting travel features.

    • Elvis

      Weren’t all three of the guys you mentioned accused of the same thing?

      • ann rand

        probably by the same woman , too.. Represented by Gloria Alred

        • Elvis

          Are you condoning that kind of behavior?

          • ann rand

            Not sure I believe it … but then, I guess nobody has the moral authority to judge them except you….. Buzz off..

          • Elvis

            He paid millions in settlements to victims and was fired by Fox. He beat his second wife in front of his kids. And she divorced him. Yeah, even as the imperfect person I am feel I have the moral authority to judge him. What does a person have to do before you criticize him? Nuke the U.S.? Are you a mugwump?

          • ann rand

            Well… Aren’t you special… stuff it.. don’t contact me again

          • Elvis

            I am special and you are a diphthong…don’t contact me again.

  • Sue L-J

    I like Bill too but charging for Youtube not so much. Build a bigger audience Bill before you charge $50.

  • Howard Essig

    Reason # 457 to only hire straight white males as direct reports. Bill learned the hard way.

    • Sue L-J

      He’ll be back on tv just give it some time.

      • sweptarea

        Disagree. The magic is gone and it can’t be retrieved.

  • Resist_Tyranny

    Bill is a kook… period

  • Rachela Mele

    He needs to be on your show!! You’ll get 4 more Million People tuning in!!

  • ken

    I wouldn’t 95 cents for any thing mr wonderful he thinks has to say hes nothing but its all about me me me and his stupid books

    • FreedomStorm

      … … but he never read a one of them.

      • aldoro

        And you know HOW??????

    • aldoro

      How does it feel to be STUPID?????

    • Krakatoa

      that, and seldom letting his guests finish a sentence

    • KD

      Maybe the only ignorant and “stupid” person is you! Obviously you have no brain in your head, therefore you have to have the left-wing liberals hold your hand and tell you what to do, what to say, what to and not to feel,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    • sweptarea

      Ken ! Proofread your posts ! If you know what ‘proofread’ means…

  • Carol Upton

    I like Bill, but not enough to pay $50 to hear his opinions.

    • Levi

      Well said Carol. I like Bill too. He’s a millionaire. I’m not

    • Barry Soetoro-Chin

      cut the price by 50% and I may be interested? or just read his books.

    • Al Robins

      Do you have cable? If so, how much do you pay for that which includes channels you probably never watch and news stations that attack your political views? We cut the cable, got an HD TV antenna and stream our videos. Cable was costing us about $69 a month after the “discount period” for the cheapest package which is about $828 and year so we save $778 getting our news direct from Bill. It just boils down to what you want to spend you money on and what you choose to “vote for” with your money. #Blacks4Trump

      • Mr.Jim

        The OAN “Daily Ledger” broadcast is great.
        Graham is not only conservative, but highly knowledgable.

        • Al Robins

          Thank you for that. I already subscribed to OAN’s youtube channel but I just found and subscribed to “The Daily Ledger’s” channel. It is past time for us to support the individuals and news agencies who actually broadcast the news. #Blacks4Trump

    • A marcus Young

      Oh goodness no! He needs to do it for free. Or he will just sit in his living room and watch the Democrats steal the United States.

  • Al Lejdly

    So now the libs will get sex bots to claim he sexually harassed them since he’s on the web.

  • John Ehrhart

    Anyone dissing Bill is un American. That’s as easy and as plain talking as John Wayne. Anyone who bad mouths Bill would do well to READ his Old School tutorial for snowflakes about who WE are that voted for DT. The guys that pay most of the taxes that until recently have been handed out to liberal, no job, whining, slobs who think they know what’s going on when the only light of day they see is coming in through their mommie’s kitchen window where they still live. Entitled, petulant, and believe HRC, who should be in jail, should have been or latest POTUS. I told my kids growing up, you will be surrounded by MORONS, just be sure you aren’t one of them… Pick a few issues close to your heart, Dedicate some time each day to studying them, get past the liberal media, do the home work… Be a smart voter, your only weapon against the ignorant and mean hearted. Look at this article, it’s all negative except he had good ratings. Look deeper any you will find an American guy with a smart eye and ear, a sense of the history of our country and the issues, telling us the FACTS.
    Thank you Bill for your courage. Looking forward to your newest endeavor, keep your head down!

  • ReasonableUnreasonable

    Billy is OK but like most men he has a HARD ON.

    • Al Robins

      Really? What happened to innocent until proven guilty? You do know people can say ANYTHING about you and yes people also lie. The difference is evidence. There has been no evidence that Bill is guilty of any sexual wrongdoing. I have been watching the man for years and continue to watch him now and in those years I also have been the victim of people saying things about me that were not true and when that happens to you, you learn quickly to go on the facts and not just speculation. There is also a lot to be said about a person’s character. Please take this it heart before you comment on someone else and I hope you do not have to have the misfortune to have to learn about this from personal experience. If you do, you quickly will learn who your real friends are and you will not be so quick to judge someone else. #Blacks4Trump

    • FreedomStorm

    • KD

      I just love listening to whining liberals. They make me LMFAO!!

  • antiliberal00

    Not sure where the “no spin” comes from as I stopped listening to him when he started embracing liberalism, years ago.

    • Xabre

      Now if you watched Billy O at all you’d know that he does his best to remain as neutral as possible, I believe Bill is a Deplorable but cant / wont admit it on air, or on line for that matter….The main reason Bill O” Reilly kept FNC #1 for so many years is his fair and balanced Commentary. If you’d watched him for any real length of time you’d know that. So embracing liberalism….Billy O is far from it. Unflinching, unbiased, Ruthless in interrogation of his guests and topics absolutely, but liberal I think Not!

      • Al Robins

        Agreed! This is what happens when someone comments on something they know nothing about which seams to be on the rise with this generation. I have been watching Bill for years and I am a Premium Member on his website and the man is a straight shooter. He only comments with the facts and tells you exactly how it is. I get tired of people commenting on things without knowing what they are talking about. #Blacks4Trump

        • Xabre

          Yes its the same with AJ over at Info Wars…Many people call him a Charlatan and a Conspiracy theorist, but when you watch him on a consistent basis, he is correct about 90% of the time in his predictions, and he has the fact of the daily rags right in front of him everyday and comments on them, yet many call him a Crack pot….So if he’s a crack pot how come he gets a whopping 4 million Plus views a day…..

        • Dagny2

          It’s the same with Rush Limbaugh. I never listened to him because I had heard such terrible things about him and his views. One day I was in a car with someone who listened to him and was forced. That was an eye opener! Those who say such bad things about these men probably have never listened to them.

          • Al Robins

            Agreed! #Blacks4Trump

      • aldoro

        Kudos to you. HE WAS FOX NEWS. I for one don’t watch them anymore. ONE AMERICA NEWS NETWORK has taken their place.

        • Xabre

          Yes that Liz Wheeler is as good as Tomi Lahren, I just wish Tomi would get back on TV…rumor has it that a couple of Deplorable billionaires are making moves to create a 7th Cable News Network, they just gotta get approved by the FCC and guess who their looking at….Billy O, Sean Hannity, and Tomi Lahren….Man O Man if they pull this off it will completely destroy the Uber Alt Left MSM……but then its still just a rumor ….PITY!.
          OANN is a great On Line Conservative outlet…now if those billionaires were smart, I’d be courting OANN to go Live with the 7th possibility…..but again what do I know.
