Two crazy items today from Mediaite. First, it appears that Fox star Megyn Kelly claimed that she was subject to repeated incidences of harassment:
Mediaite founder and legal analyst Dan Abrams says Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is alleging "multiple incidents" of sexual harassment by the network's embattled CEO Roger Ailes.
In an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Wednesday, Abrams cites an unnamed source for the latest bombshell in the unfolding story involving the vaunted Fox News honcho, who is now reportedly in talks to leave the network.
"The source tells me that multiple Fox News talent — women both current and/or former — have come forward to allege possible harassment by Roger Ailes and that's why it's moving so quickly, because it's so clear to the owners know that something needs to be done," Abrams says, adding Kelly herself has alleged "multiple incidents of harassment."
In response, frequent Fox commentator Ann Coulter, who took Carlson's side, is bashing Kelly. Via Mediaite:
Coulter spoke to The Huffington Post saying the Kelly report means Ailes is “definitely out.” She remarked, “I noticed the people who’ve been saying ‘he never sexually harassed me’ also, by the way, work for Fox News, which was such a weird coincidence.”
Lots of women currently employed at Fox News have spoken out to defend Ailes.
Coulter had this response to the report about what Kelly said:
“I guess she waited for him to be out before she spoke up,” Coulter said, adding that it was “very brave of Megyn to wait until the last moment.”
This story is getting more and more interesting every day.
