Report: Megyn Kelly Claimed Ailes Harassed Her

A day after reporting that Fox News chief Roger Ailes could be on his way out soon, New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman reported Tuesday that Megyn Kelly, the channel’s most prominent star, has detailed alleged harassment by Ailes to the law firm commissioned by 21st Century Fox to probe accusations leveled by ex-anchor Gretchen Carlson. Unlike many of her colleagues, Kelly has been silent since Carlson filed a lawsuit against Ailes this month. According to Sherman’s sources, the alleged harassment against Kelly occurred when she was a young contributor to the network about 10 years ago. Sherman also reported that 21st Century Fox has given Ailes a deadline of Aug. 1 to resign or be fired.
