Bill O’Reilly Lawyer Claims ‘Irrefutable Evidence of A Political Smear Campaign’

Bill O’Reilly‘s future has been the hot topic of conversation. Even Matt Drudge got involved today tweeting a presumptive eulogy for the cable news ratings king. But it appears that O’Reilly is not going down without a fight, as his lawyer released the following combative statement.

Mediaite received the following statement from Marc E Kasowitz, attorney for Bill O’Reilly.

Bill O’Reilly has been subjected to a brutal campaign of character assassination that is unprecedented in post-McCarthyist America. This law firm has uncovered evidence that the smear campaign is being orchestrated by far-left organization bent on destroying O’Reilly for political and financial reasons.

That evidence will be put forth shortly and is irrefutable.

CNN’s Brian Stelter recently reported that Mr. O’Reilly and Fox News had begun negotiating an exit strategy though there is no evidence yet that is the case. Needless to say, there is a lot of smoke currently surrounding the potential firing of Fox News. Will this reveal a fire? Or is it, as O’Reilly’s lawyer explains, a “brutal campaign of character assassination”?

Either way, a developing story to be sure.
