A recent NewsHounds noted the suspicious coincidence of “O’Reilly Factor” host Bill O’Reilly’s suddenly announcing a vacation on the same day he was mentioned in Andrea Tantaros’ against Fox News.

“On the same day that Andrea Tantaros accused Bill O’Reilly of sexually harassing her, O’Reilly announced he had suddenly decided to take ‘a few days resting up,’” NewsHounds’ Ellen Brodsky said. “This, after he had just returned from a nearly two-week vacation.”

“What was even stranger was that O’Reilly spent about 40 seconds explaining his decision,” she added. “I can’t recall O’Reilly ever spending more than a few seconds announcing he’d be taking time off.”

O’Reilly said that he would be “resting up for the brutal campaign that’ll ramp up in September and October.” He added, “I’m gonna be working around the clock on that.”

Brodsky said Fox News host Megyn Kelly similarly took a sudden vacation after she and GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump began publicly feuding. Trump tried to take credit for her vacation, to which Fox News , “Conspiracy theories about Megyn Kelly’s vacation rank up there with UFO’s . . . and Elvis being alive.”
