O'Reilly said he was returning to the United States from a trip to Rome and the Vatican when he learned he had been dismissed by the Fox News Channel.
O'Reilly reportedly made $25 million-a-year at Fox and is receiving close to that as a payout for leaving the network amidst his alleged sexual harassment against female employees.

When Beck joked that he wanted to write a book called "Killing O'Reilly", a reference to a series of books written by O'Reilly, the former Fox host replied, "yeah, well they did", adding that he was referring to the protesters, not the company. It's grossly dishonest. I did what I had to do to protect my family. But those days are over. 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.

O'Reilly also laced into the "vicious and evil" media which he said was not interested in portraying the news accurately.
"We were all shocked", he said. But I'm not going to say anything more than that", "O'Reilly said. They run the company and they own the company. I felt bad not only for me and my staff, but for the viewers and listeners because they really had no idea what had happened.
"So would I", Beck admitted.
