Their appearance has lived on through "You Mad" and "I got dirt on you doggy" memes, but it also returned to prominence in light of Bill O'Reilly's recent firing from Fox News, following a report from The New York Times that revealed that the right-wing pundit had paid out $13 million in settlements for five different sexual harassment cases.

So O'Reilly wouldn't specifically say why he "left" Fox News, but he did offer a few tantalizing glimpses that would've seemed right at home in one of Alex Jones' paranoid rants.

The 30-minute show will be available on his website and look like his former program, "The O'Reilly Factor", the newspaper reported. "It's basically an experiment to see how many people are going to want this service", he said. "They had a shift in management that coincided with a very well thought-out and financed effort to destroy me", he said, according to Newsday.

At his show on Saturday - he does the tour with Dennis Miller - O'Reilly begged off going into detail on whatever bombshells might or might not fall. That's coming and will be here before September in a robust form. "There will be a network that rises up because the numbers for Fox are going down", he said.

Fox News is still the most-watched cable news network, but it has faced stronger competition in recent weeks as MSNBC and its star anchor, Rachel Maddow, have made ratings gains due to their focus on critical coverage of President Donald Trump's administration. O'Reilly has vehemently denied the allegations.

On his website, O'Reilly said he is taking his time to decide his next move.
