Bill O’Reilly took to Twitter this week to give his analysis on the recent healthcare debate, using his “No Spin News” podcast as a new forum for giving his take on major issues.
“What you’re entitled to is a fair healthcare premium, access to doctors in your neighborhood, I don’t think that’s gonna be a problem,” the former Fox host said. “And if disaster befalls you, you’re entitled to the insurance having to step up to some extent. And you’re entitled to the state to deliver fair, if you don’t have any money — Medicaid — but not unlimited crazy stuff.”

WHAT’S NEXT FOR O’REILLY?
Meanwhile, Eric Marston, who runs Bill O’Reilly’s official website, registered the domain names TheOReillyFocus.com and OReillyFocus.com on June 9th.
The move only fuels speculation about how soon of the former Fox News host will launch a new brand after his departure from the network in April.
O’Reilly has confirmed he is starting his own operation but has released few details.
But on Glenn Beck’s radio show at the end of June, he did give a little hint about future media endeavours and the direction he sees himself heading in the aftermath of his spring firing from Fox News.
Beck asked him if he would look to go back into television.
“I don’t know yet,” O’Reilly said. “It has to be the right vehicle. It has to be a vehicle that’s competitive because I’m having fun. … I never wake up and say, ‘Gee, I wish I could commute to New York City today for an hour and a half and walk into a tension-packed cauldron.”
Last month, One America News Network CEO Robert Herring said on Twitter that he withdrew his job offer to O’Reilly, following earlier comments that he was aggressively trying to lure the host to the up-and-coming conservative network.
“We are pulling offer to @billoreilly, it could have paid him more than he made at Fox. We wish him luck. #OANN,” Herring tweeted.
It’s likely that Herring offered O’Reilly some sort of profit-sharing agreement, as the former “Factor” host was reportedly making around $25 million per year at Fox.
One American News Network is a conservative-leaning network headquartered in San Diego and is available in about 35 million homes. DirecTV began carrying it in April 2017.
O’Reilly also recently revealed that he’s starting his “own operation” at a “Spin Stops Here” tour stop in Long Island.
“But I am starting my own operation. We are going to do that … It’s basically an experiment to see how many people are going to want this service. That’s coming and will be here before September in a robust form. But I suspect there will be another network maybe merging with us. There will be a network that rises up because the numbers for Fox are going down.”
Billoreilly.com is also testing a half-hour newscast “where we will go into a studio” and it will look similar in production value to “The Factor.”
And while he told Beck that he’s enjoying doing the “No Spin” podcast, if the right opportunity presents itself to jump back into television, he’d consider it.
“I have some battles I want to fight and if the right forum presents itself, I would absolutely consider it.”
