Bombshell report: Megyn Kelly has told Murdoch lawyers she was sexually harassed by Roger Ailes

Published

on

It looks like the biggest shoe in the Roger Ailes sexual harassment scandal has just dropped.

According to New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman, Fox News star anchor Megyn Kelly has told investigators hired by the Murdoch family that she has been sexually harassed by Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.

Specifically, Sherman has two sources who claim that “Kelly has told investigators that Ailes made unwanted sexual advances towards her about ten years ago when she was a young correspondent at Fox.” The sources say that she described the alleged harassment by Ailes in great detail.

Another juicy tidbit in Sherman’s piece: His sources say Ailes has “received advice on strategy from Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani” for beating the rap on sexual harassment, which adds a whole other layer of intrigue to this saga.

If Kelly really has spilled the beans on Ailes to investigators, then it would explain why she’s been so silent about the case. Other Fox personalities, in contrast, have been adamant about defending their longtime boss.

The trouble for Ailes and Fox started when longtime Fox & Friends cohost Gretchen Carlson sued Ailes for sexual harassment. Afterward, at least six other women came forward to also claim they were harassed by Ailes.

On Monday this week, Sherman came out with a report saying that the Murdochs had decided to fire Ailes and were only debating the timing of when it would happen.
