She also said she didn’t put much stock in reports that 21st Century Fox chiefs have decided to replace him.
She noted that the investigation is ongoing “and I don’t think the lawyers are talking.” She also reiterated her belief in her earlier statement in support of Ailes.
Megyn Kelly, one of Fox News Channel’s most prominent anchors, may have alleged as part of an internal review that the network’s chief made unwanted sexual advances on her a decade ago, according to a new report by New York magazine.
A spokesman for 21st Century Fox said the company declined to comment on the allegations made in the story, which is based on accounts from two anonymous sources.
Indeed, a phalanx of Fox News hosts – Maria Bartiromo, Greta Van Susteren, O’Reilly and Neil Cavuto among them – have defended Ailes in late-night programs and press reports.
Greta Van Susteren said Monday while attending the Republican National Convention in Cleveland that she “didn’t know anything” about Ailes’ status at Fox News.
The success of Kelly’s primetime show, “The Kelly File,” gives her a lot of credibility at the network, which faces the potential departures of both her and Bill O’Reilly in 2017 when their contracts expire.Her voice has yet to be heard on the Ailes matter in public.
