Kelly And O’Reilly Can’t Stop Sparring With Each Other Over Roger Ailes’ Alleged Sexual Harassment

While Fox News personality Megyn Kelly keeps dropping new bombshells about her alleged mistreatment at the hands of President-elect Donald Trump and former boss Roger Ailes, her colleague Bill O’Reilly recently entered the fray with his own counter-accusations regarding Ailes. On Tuesday, the O’Reilly Factor host feigned disinterest in anything that “makes my network look bad” on CBS This Morning, then did an about-face on his program. “You don’t like what’s happening in the workplace, go to human resources or leave,” he told his audience, adding: “Loyalty is good.”

Both of O’Reilly’s positions provided the news media with plenty to chew on Wednesday morning, especially since CBS This Morning was interviewing Kelly in the same seat her colleague sat in just 24 hours prior. Gayle King played a clip from the program’s meeting with O’Reilly, paraphrased his “human resources or leave” comments, then asked Kelly for her two cents on the matter:

“I am very proud of the fact that I discussed this with Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch before I wrote this chapter in my book. We were all on the same page, that this was an important chapter to include. I am proud of them that they feel as I do, which is sunlight is the best disinfectant.”

King followed up with Kelly, asking whether or not she thought her words and actions had made the company look bad — as O’Reilly apparently did. In response, Kelly said “Roger Ailes made the company look bad” and that her “heart is with other women out there” since “this doesn’t just happen at Fox News.”
