Former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly says the reason why Fox News is standing with CNN's senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta lies with the new management at the conservative-leaning network.

O'Reilly made it clear he's not disparaging Fox News but claims the new management no longer wants to be "outsiders" – challenging the controversial, yet ratings dominant legacy of Roger Ailes.

"The current management there wants to be part of the establishment media," O'Reilly explained. "That’s what it wants. Doesn’t want to be criticized by the New York Times and the Washington Post. Doesn’t want to be attacked by Media Matters. Doesn’t want that anymore. Wants to be part of the crew. Part of the gang. So what better way? The gang’s all behind Jim Acosta. So that’s what’s going on there, in my humble opinion."
