Megyn Kelly becomes the latest to accuse Roger Ailes of sexual harassment. Update!

Courtesy of New York Magazine:  

As a chorus of prominent Fox News women have gone public defending Roger Ailes against the wave of sexual-harassment allegations sparked by former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson’s lawsuit, the network’s biggest star, Megyn Kelly, has been conspicuously silent. Kelly’s refusal to join in Ailes’s orchestrated defense has led to speculation about why. 

Now we have the answer. According to two sources briefed on parent company 21st Century Fox’s outside probe of the Fox News executive, led by New York–based law firm Paul, Weiss, Kelly has told investigators that Ailes made unwanted sexual advances toward her about ten years ago when she was a young correspondent at Fox. Kelly, according to the sources, has described her harassment by Ailes in detail. 

Kelly’s comments to investigators might explain why the Murdochs are moving so quickly to oust Ailes.

I've been waiting for Megyn Kelly to add her name to the list.

And now that she has there is no doubt that Ailes is toast.

Personally I hope it does not stop with Ailes.

I have a strong feeling that misogyny and sexual harassment are rampant at Fox News.

Remember Gretchen Carlson originally named Steve Doocey as well, and back in 2004 Bill O'Reilly settled a sexual harassment suit filed by his former producer, Andrea Mackris.

Update: It appears that Ailes is in the "advanced stages" of a discussion to leave Fox News.

So, I guess they're not waiting until after the GOP convention then?

      Ailes resigned today, Thursday.

      He didn't even make it to the end of the convention.

      Who is taking over for him?

      That $40 million belongs to Gretchen Carlson (unless more women come forward and sue him).

  7. Anonymous2:33 PM

    Bill O'Reilly is who I'd like to see them go after at FOX. The guy is ego driven (like Trump!) and comes across (even on the air) as a royal pain in the ass.

    Needless to say, I've not watched him in years!

    It's getting harder and harder to take your claims of the Palins being stupid when lately you haven't been able to write 3 out of 5 posts that aren't full of typos and lousy grammar. But, that's none of my business; I'm just a troll and the lame stream media is just a farce.

    1. Anonymous3:18 PM

      I beg your pardon? The Palin's may not be stupid from your perspective. Which reveals your IQ. I understand. However, they are not very nice and all have very low Intelligence.Retards if you will.

      Sorry, but the Palins "are" stupid. I stand with you on the media comment.

    3. Anonymous3:25 PM

      @2:34 PM Do you think that the Palins are honor roll students, who were home schooled by drunks and drug addicts? But at least you admit that you are a troll. Now in Bristol Palin's most eloquent voice, "go fuck yourself", troll.

      If you don't like it then LEAVE stupid grammar police troll. It's as simple as that.

      You have no clue as to what kind of device Gryphen is writing from at any time of the day since he works for a living. Not every device is designed for easily typing out paragraphs especially when it wants to auto-correct by itself. I've seen Gryphen many times correct typos when they are pointed out.

      I happen to enjoy Gryphen's style of writing ("lousy" grammar and all) because it's like he is conversing with me. Do you interrupt people when they are speaking to you and correct them all the time?

      And guess what? A recent study finds that people that spot typos and grammar mistakes are more likely to be introverts or jerks (but we knew the latter).


      Now that I got that off my chest I kind of feel sorry for you. You have to wake up every day and be you.

    So Madame Lawyer is the object of unwanted sexual advances from her employer, and she does what? Shuts her mouth and keeps working for him for another decade. I find it hard to believe that he STOPPED because she asked him to.

    1. Anonymous3:28 PM

      Blaming the victim, eh? Not cool.

    2. Thesis Schmesis4:23 AM

      3:28, I don't believe Sally was "blaming the victim". I think the point she made illustrates that Megyn Kelly was willing to stay silent and therefore subject dog knows how many women AFTER her to the same abuse- for the RIGHT PRICE.

      Kelly sold her integrity when she signed with fox. She sold her dignity when she kept working for a serial sexual abuser as long as she could make millions while doing it.

      Good. The only way to stomach him getting such a huge severance package is to have it all taken from him (and more) by every woman he hit on. Let them all come out of the woodwork. I hope Gretchen gets a big chunk. I think Kelly should get a share too.

  14. I posted this yesterday on Mediate: "I think she's (Megyn) a power hungry shark. She will always be looking after her owns elf and trying to get more power. Hell, maybe she's holding the fact of his harassment of her over Faux for more dirty lucre.

    Basically Ailes was rewarded with the golden parachute.

    Trump is king of the republicans now.

    I was more worried in 2008 with Palin. In 2008, we moved to MD from Alaska. People would see our license plates and shout Sarah Palin! We have a lot of republicans here and they loved her and some just like white elitism. Her speech when introduced at the convention was unexpectedly aggressive. Thank god I found this site.

    I'm waiting for Sarah Palin to join the list of women who are charging Roger Ailes with sexual-harassment during her time at FOX and that she left FOX because of Roger's advancement to her.

    The problem is that it would be hard to convince anybody that any man would want her. That lady is too old and unrecognizable when she takes of her makeup. Plus everybody knows Sarah doesn't have breasts.

    If the head guy was directly involved in sexual harassment you can bet that the other guys in the office arena were in on it. Typical. Those are some pretty girls that they put on front of the camera. Hope the pretty girls have brains to take down these assholes.

    Well, nothing is surprising anymore. All the right-wing hypocritical finger-pointing Fox-loving haters are falling like flies.

    I still can't understand why all this is coming out now. Kelly and the rest knew about this and let it fester and let that creepy man harass other women.

    Wonder when Sarah (Me Me, here I am, pay attention to ME) will file her sexual harassment complaint.
