Megyn Kelly Breaks Silence About Roger Ailes
19 July 2016
21st Century Fox is declining to comment on an explosive new report from New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman that says Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly told lawyers she was also harassed by Fox News CEO and chairman Roger Ailes. “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.

Roger Ailes Out at Fox News Amid Sexual Assault Allegations
Brian Steinberg, Senior TV Editor
Roger Ailes, who transformed Fox News Channel from a start-up into one of the nation’s most influential news organizations in under two decades, is leaving the 21st Century Fox-owned cable outlet in the wake of a bevy of sexual harassment allegations leveled at him, according to a person familiar with the situation.
Spokespeople for both the network and the parent company were not available for immediate comment. An official announcement was said to be imminent, this person said.
Ailes departs under a cloud. Gretchen Carlson, the former “Fox & Friends” anchor who left the network in June, filed a lawsuit in New Jersey earlier this month alleging Ailes had harassed her and derailed her career. Ailes had in a previous statement denied the charges. More women came forward alleging similar treatment by Ailes during his time as a producer in the decades before he set up shop at Fox News.
The final blow seemed to come on Tuesday: a report in New York magazine alleging that Megyn Kelly, one of the network’s primetime stars, had been the victim of unwanted sexual advances in her earlier days at the network. Those claims have not been independently verified, but the report seems to have played a role in determining the viability of Ailes’ tenure.
A posting on Drudge Report suggested Ailes could receive as much as $40 million as part of a settlement. Ailes was believed to be working under a contract with a term that expired in 2018.
More to come.
