Oh the heels of Gretchen Carlson‘s stunning claim that her boss, Roger Ailes, sexually assaulted her, now golden girl Fox News anchor, Megyn Kelly is also saying she was sexually assaulted by the media mogul.
Insiders say The Murdoch family is advancing on a bid to oust Ailes as CEO of Fox News. The Kelly revelation may be a hint as to the reason why.
Two sources briefed on the corporate investigation into Ailes told New York Magazine that Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly has joined Gretchen Carlson in accusing the 76-year-old executive of sexual harassment. Twenty-First Century Fox, Fox News’ parent company, hired a New York law firm to investigate Ailes earlier this month, after Carlson filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against him. When it came time to interview Kelly, she reportedly told lawyers that Ailes made unwanted sexual advances towards her about 10 years ago, when she was working as a legal correspondent in Fox’s Washington, DC bureau. h/t dailymail
