Bill O’Reilly is plotting a comeback that no one thought was possible

Liberals rejoiced when Bill O’Reilly was forced out of Fox News.

The Left believed that taking out the top rated host in cable news would signal the death knell of conservative media.

But one year later, Bill O’Reilly is on the verge of this massive comeback.


Ever since O’Reilly was fired from Fox, rumors have circulated that he would eventually stage a comeback.

O’Reilly’s new landing spot appears to be Newsmax, which is looking to build a competitor to Fox News.

The New York Post reports:

An insider told Page Six, “The deals are not done yet, but talks are in the advanced stages, certainly with O’Reilly. The thinking is, following a 6 p.m. news show, Greta would anchor the 7 p.m. hour, O’Reilly would be back at 8 p.m., and Bolling could smoothly continue on at 9 p.m. Spicer and his cohorts would go on at 10 p.m., with the later slot allowing the show to be looser. But the deals are not yet signed and sealed.”

The O’Reilly talks progressed as veteran news exec Michael Clemente, Fox News’ former executive vice president of news, joined Newsmax Broadcasting as CEO in April.

Since his Fox News ouster, O’Reilly, 68, has laid low at his Montauk home, working on his books, with Newsmax and his own website airing his show “No Spin News.”

But a return to 8 p.m. could put him in an interesting head-to-head battle with his Fox replacement, Tucker Carlson.”

Fox News Channel is the number one cable news channel in America.

The network has never faced serious competition before.



But Newsmax is ready to throw down the gauntlet.

Newsmax faces a challenge with its distribution.

Currently the channel reaches 50 million homes.

That pales in comparison to Fox’s penetration into nearly 95 million homes.

O’Reilly anchoring a new primetime lineup is Newsmax’s best chance to boost their reach.

    Does O’Reilly still believe obama had our best interest at Heart??? I cancelled Cable TV when he said that nine years ago and don’t miss it a bit…!!!

    I would love to see Bill O’Reilly come back; but, not on some obscure station which is not carried on every cable/satellite provider. I love the idea of some rich person buying CNN. How about the Donald? Wouldn’t that be a hoot?

    I want to see Bill back on television, but I guess I’ll have to watch him on my phone because I have Comcast (xfinity) where I live.

    I would love to see him just not butting heads with Tucker. Maybe you could steal Tucker.

    That is an excellent idea CNN is trash some billionaire should by that company and hire Bill O’Reilly

  7. Bob Hunt says:

    Miss you Bill!

  8. Charles Gannott says:

    Forget Newsmax competing with Fox. Why won’t one of you conservative billionaires buy out CNN or any of the other liberal stations in trouble & give us a more level battle field.

  9. Frank Lasky says:

    Hey Bill ! Don’t bang heads with Tucker ! I’m going to have to watch him over you !

    I’m glad have a DVR and will be able to record the conflicting shows. I won’t quit watching Tucker and Martha; but did like Greta and O’Reilly. He’s an egotistical creature, that’s for sure; but was a powerful egotistical creature and I think certainly was patriotic and military supportive. No one is a true conservative anymore.

    Bill O’Reilly is no conservative and his style of interviewing makes my skin crawl. He won’t let a person say more than 3 words before he interrupts. Yes, Tucker sometimes interrupts but only to stop an interviewee from getting away with lies.

    • Meggie says:

      Your thoughts are identical to mine. I often found myself wondering why Bill didn’t just put a mirror across from him and interview himself. No one got more than a few words; he would then take what they said and repeat it back to them as though they were too stupid to express it to where we, also being stupid, could understand it. I found myself yelling at the tv during his show more often than not. I LIKE Tucker; not all the time but he is still more palatable than Bill is.

    The verb ‘laid’ in the article is incorrect; it should be ‘has LAIN’ low. ‘Laid’ needs a dierect object; there is not one for it here. This is another example of what happens when the teaching of traditional English intensively is frowned upon and even forbidden in some states or districts.

    • Texas Belle says:

      Right you are. Proper English is long gone.

    • Pat says:

      You’re quick to correct the term “laid” as should be “Lain”. What about your own post; dierect instead of direct. Guess you’re not as smart as you pretend to be, huh?

      I did NOT already say that!!!!
      You’re wrong, Patriot.

    • Archangel Mikey says:

      If there is anything I cannot stand, it is people who are always correcting other people about their grammar and/or spelling. In case you haven’t noticed, it is very boring; and, it doesn’t make you any better or more intelligent.

    I really like Newsmax. I get it on my internet and by the way it uses Discus for blogging. I can’t blog where you have to use facebook or one of those sites as I don’t no will never subscribe and with all that has happened am glad I didn’t. You have to start somewhere and Newsmax has really made a splash. I’m not in love with Tucker but I do tape to watch in the evening Lou Dobbs, Hannity, and Ingram. Can’t be bothered with fake news.

    I can tell you the Democrats don’t want to see this guy coming back. He exposes all their fraud and corruption. Every one of these top news guys has got some kind of problem .They would all be gone if you went off of that.
