Megyn Kelly appeared on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell on Wednesday to discuss the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal — but she also used to the segment to discuss harassment allegations at her former employer, Fox News.
“Obviously I’m new over here in the NBC family and I come from Fox News and Fox News’ problems on this front have been well-documented and well-publicized, but it isn’t just Fox, either. I hope our own industry looks at itself and does a cleaning of house and gets honest about anybody in their companies who they’ve had to pay out repeated settlements for, because at this point if that gets unearthed, if there is such an executive at these other companies, it’s on you. You’re on notice to go clean up your house, figure out who you’ve got there.”
Fox News has been the subject of scrutiny over the past year with high-profile harassment and misconduct allegations being leveled against the late founder Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly, and Eric Bolling.
Kelly told Mitchell that “one of my main takeaways from 2016, everything that happened in that campaign, was that we as women have a long way to go.”
