Original releaseApril 24, 2017 – present

No Spin News is a paid subscription podcast started by Bill O'Reilly on April 24, 2017.[1][2][3][4] The podcast was started after O'Reilly's contract with Fox News was terminated on April 19, 2017 when advertisers abandoned his program The O'Reilly Factor after a number of settled sexual harassment lawsuits came to light.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13]

The first podcast was 19 minutes. O’Reilly said that he was sad that he's not on television anymore and that he "was very surprised how it all turned out", in reference to being forced out at Fox News, but he could not offer more insight "because there’s much stuff going on right now.” O’Reilly was "very confident the truth will come out.[1]

On August 10, 2017, O'Reilly expanded No Spin News by launching a 30 minute video newscast.[14]
