MATT LAUER interviewed BILL O'REILLY on the "Today" show yesterday, and Bill got a little testy when Matt pressed him on whether Fox News had a legitimate reason to let him go.
Obviously, Bill denied any and all of the sexual harassment allegations against him. And he called the whole thing, quote, "a political and financial hit job."
Matt replied, "Is this a vast left-wing conspiracy?" Matt was being GLIB here, as he likes to do. He was kind of teasing Bill with Hillary Clinton's old claim that there was a vast RIGHT-wing conspiracy against her husband.
That's where things heated up a bit. Bill said, quote, "Don't be sarcastic . . . We're gonna be able to prove what we say. There are more things to come."
He added, quote, "I can go to sleep at night very well knowing that I never mistreated anyone on my watch in 42 years."
