Bill O’Reilly’s ‘No Spin News’ to be broadcast on Newsmax TV

Newsmax TV has announced that this weekend it will be broadcasting episodes of Bill O’Reilly’s podcast “No Spin News.” 

This will be the first time that a major news channel has decided to promote O’Reilly since he was dismissed from Fox News, roughly a year ago, following sexual harassment allegations.

“No Spin News”

In the interim, the former O’Reilly Factor host has kept himself busy. In addition to frequently tweeting about current affairs, O’Reilly started a podcast last year, pithily titled, “No Spin News.”

O’Reilly sees the podcast as an “antidote” to partisan mainstream news outlets.

“Chances are you know many news agencies are no longer honest,” says O’Reilly in a promotional clip. “They’re in business to promote a point of view, not seek the truth. That is why we developed the “No Spin News” on BillO’”

Nightly, O’Reilly takes on the major news topics of the day, looking to provide the viewer with “the truth about what is happening in America.”

Until now, episodes were only available to subscribers of O’Reilly’s website. But earlier this week, Newsmax TV announced that it will be airing the podcast.

“So get ready America,” read the advertisement, “for a rollicking half-hour of news and opinion you can’t find anywhere else! Change the channel on fake news! Don’t waste another minute of your time on the dishonest networks and their so-called ‘journalists.'”

Dismissed from Fox News

Newsmax TV will become the first channel to sponsor O’Reilly since his departure from Fox News.

In April 2017, The New York Times published a report which showed that O’Reilly paid five women $13 million to silence their sexual harassment allegations. This was followed by an advertiser boycott, and eventually his dismissal from the network.

Other TV appearances

Since his ouster from Fox, O’Reilly has made only a handful of television appearances.

One of them was in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity last September. Many readers will probably remember it as being anticlimactic since the topic which most wanted to hear O’Reilly speak about – the sexual abuse allegations – was completely avoided.

More recently, O’Reilly was given an executive producer credit for the Fox docu-series Legends & Lies, a historical series based on books by O’Reilly and David Fisher. But a network spokesperson clarified that Fox “has not resumed a working relationship” with O’Reilly and that “the series was already in production prior to his departure.”

Last fall, Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy confirmed they were in talks with O’Reilly, who Ruddy has described as “one of the most remarkable newscasters in history.” O’Reilly appeared on Newsmax TV as an analyst covering President Trump’s State of the Union address in January.

This weekend will mark O’Reilly’s “real” return to television, in his best role as news host.

To watch O’Reilly’s “No Spin News,” tune into Newsmax TV today at 7 p.m. and tomorrow at 1 p.m EST.
