7:03 am
now. as far as jose coastal areas, up for minor coastal flooding, tides two feet above notion, beach erosion from fire island and provincetown just south of boston. it will will track away but then kind of do a lop and hang out in the atlantic right through sunday. may have an effect on maria. we're going to have to watch and see what happens with that. now, as far as maria is concerned, here's the latest on it. we are currently watching this as a category 5 storm, 65 miles west southwest of guadalupe. winds 160 miles per hour moving north at 9 miles per hour, and you can see we have hurricane warnings up for theward island, puerto rico. hurricane watches up for pipsia and tropical storm warnings as well. now, here's what we're expecting to happen as far as maria is concerned. the right now a category 5 storm makes its way towards the virgin islands. tonight, 125 to 150-mile-per-hour winds. 7:00 to 11-foot waves and so to
7:04 am

7:42 am
business things in play at that time and still today that 21st century was involved with, and it was a business decision that they made, but there isn't any smoking gun. >> but you don't let your number one guy. >> sure you do. >> unless you have information -- >> that's not true. billions of dollars at stake in business deals, and they made a business decision that they could, you know, possibly prosper more without me. it was as simple as that. it was a business decision. >> did you ever send a lewd text or e-mail to another employee at fox news? >> no. >> did you ever have any human resources cases brought against you? >> not in 42 years. wait, wait. in 42 years, all right, i've been in this bills. i've worked for 12 companies. not one time did i have any interaction with hr or any complaints filed against me. >> the "new york times" reported up to five women had come
7:43 am
forward over the years and complained about sexual harassment at your hands and that fox news actually made deals with those women, financial settlements, amounting to about $13 million for their silence. is that accurate? >> i don't know, because i'm not privy to what knocks news did. after roger ailes went down, there was a flood of lawsuits, a flood, with dozens of people named, and the company did what the company did. >> but you've read the reports. >> wait, wait. every company in this country, including this one, comcast, has these lawsuits. every one. now some of them are valid and some of them are not. they settle them for a number of reasons. now, as an employee, i don't real very any say in that matter. >> but were you aware of those five women? >> i was aware, sure. >> so why didn't you sue those women? >> because you can't win those lawsuits. if you're a public figure, you cannot win them.
quote
7:44 am
sarah palin is the latest example, and -- and i could do that, but the collateral damage of these lawsuits, the press frenzy, every allegation is a conviction. every allegation in this area is a conviction. they don't look for the truth. >> but think about those five women and what they did. they came forward and filed complaints against the biggest star at the network they worked at. think of how intimidating that must have been, how nerve-racking that must have been. doesn't that tell you how strongly they felt about the way they were treated by you? >> well, it's not just me. those lawsuits involved many other people, not just me. so i don't know -- i'm not going to speculate about intent or why people did what they did, but you don't have the story, lauer, correct. the lawsuits involved many people, many people. >> but you were also named. >> i was named in a few of them. a few of them. >> let me put a period on it
7:45 am
this way, bill, by asking you this over the last six months since your firing, have you done some soul searching? have you done some self-reflection and have you looked at the way you treated women that you think now or think about differently now than you did at the time? >> my conscience is clear. what i have done is organized a legal team to get the truth to the american people so if you go to newsmax.com or billo'riley.com you'll see an article about one of the accusers of me, okay, who was arrested for filing a false police report. will you see that article. and i want people to read it and make up their own mind. >> and that happened back in 2015, and i just want to mention that two things can be mutually exclusive. she could have filed a false report -- >> but you don't know, lauer. you don't know. >> she could have filed a false report in 20 is a and still be telling the truth about you. >> look, anything is possible, all right, but it goes to
7:46 am
credibility, doesn't it? all right. if you look at -- in totality, this was a hit job, a political and financial hit job. >> is this a vast left wing conspiracy? >> not vast and don't be sarcastic. >> i was the one that hillary clinton said that to 20 years ago. >> all right. we'll be able to prove what we say. there are more things to come, all right. this was media matters, the bonner group, color of change, organizing sponsor boycotts to bring down fox news and me. >> were there any self-inflicted wounds here, bill? >> you know, nobody is a perfect person, but i can go to sleep at night very well knowing that i never mistreated anyone on my watch in 42 years. >> we spoke earlier and i said i would ask you these questions and i would also ask you about your book and i'm going to uphold my end of the barringan. "killing england".
7:47 am
>> yes. >> about the american revolution and the heros and villains on that fight for freedom, you think it's particularly relevant now. why? >> you have in dallas the public school system now debating whether to change the names of schools of washington, jefferson, madison and benjamin franklin. this is madness, and folks need to know about these icons, who they were in order to stop this craziness. "killing england" is seep through the eyes of george washington, thomas jefferson and benjamin franklin, all right. what they went through. who they, and it's unvarnish the. it's slaves, it's everything. people need to know who they were to stop this crazy stuff! >> when you talk about this crazy stuff, do you think we're living through under a re-examination of history now, or is history under assault in your opinion? >> it's under assault. it's absolutely the far left and pc forces want to wipe out our
7:48 am
legacy. you know why? do you know? >> no. >> because they believe it's based on white supremacy. it's no accident we're hearing that word -- those words, white supremacy. they want to redo everything, the constitution, how we make laws, everything, because they believe they, the far left and pc forces, we are a bad country, the usa. i want people to read "killing england" so they know and can make up their own mind, make up your own mind but know the facts about these people and most don't. they don't know who george washington was or what he did. you think you do, but you don't, and that's why we wrote "killing england." >> and i want to tell people the book is out now in book stores and online. bill o'reilly. >> thanks for having me in. >> g tech: when you schedule with safelite autoglass, you get time for more life. this family wanted to keep the game going. son: hey mom, one more game? tech: with safelite, you get a text when we're on our way. you can see exactly when we'll arrive.

8:21 am
sheep, read something kind of boring, but not too boring. first, i had to fall asleep, but could i stay asleep? apparently not. i kept hearing the buzzing of a phone. that really threw me so i really had to try to reset and fall asleep again. it isn't always easy to reset after the all too familiar sound of a crying baby. i checked my phone once, and i saw a message but i tried not to think about it. it took a while but finally i fall back asleep. but then i'm interrupted once again. i just tried to ignore it, put the pillow over my head and roll
8:22 am
