In an interview on fellow host Sean Hannity's radio show, O'Reilly said he was focusing his primary energies on legal efforts and investigations to clear his name, and referred to some claims of sexual harassment as a "kind of defamation." "What we're going to uncover is shocking," O'Reilly said, though he did not offer specifics.
He cited a recent report in the right-leaning publication Newsmax, which found that one of his accusers was arrested for false allegations of a crime. "This is the first drop that you're going to see," O'Reilly said. "We're going to be very precise, not any 'He said, she said.' It's going to be facts."
