Former Fox News anchor made her comeback in an interview with Tucker Carlson.
Kelly dished dirt on her former employer NBC News.
And Megyn Kelly came clean about this awful scandal that stunned viewers into silence.
NBC is still dealing with the fallout from “Today Show” host Matt Lauer’s resignation amid a swirl of sexual misconduct allegations.
One of Lauer’s accusers brought the story back into the headlines with allegations that Lauer raped her at the 2014 Olympics.
NBC’s denied any knowledge of allegations against Lauer or that they enabled his allegedly predatory behavior.
Megyn Kelly – who worked at NBC from June 2017 to the fall of 2018 – called that hogwash.
Kelly told Carlson that there are so many allegations of widespread misconduct going all the way to the top of NBC news that the company should hire an outside investigator to determine the truth of the matter.
The Daily Caller reports:
The former Fox News anchor hit back at NBC News for not having an external investigation into the allegations against Lauer and expressed skepticism that the network had no idea about the alleged sexual misconduct before it fired the host in 2017. She suggested the network should “show us the money” and come clean about any and all agreements made to former staffers.
“They haven’t gotten specific about what monies were paid out to home,” Kelly said in her first TV interview in nearly a year. “Show us the money. The number one thing that needs to happen now is they need to release any and all Matt Lauer accusers from their confidentiality agreements.”
Carlson wondered if NBC saying that it had no previous knowledge of the allegations against Lauer is a “plausible claim.” Kelly noted the network had settlements with former employees and that there were complaints about Lauer before that of former NBC staffer Brooke Nevils, who accused the disgraced “Today” show host of anally raping her in a hotel room during the coverage of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
“Show us all of the agreements, the enhanced severance agreements reached or at least the number so we can see which ones pop out and which ones are super high,” Kelly continued. “Are they all women? Do they all have a connection with Matt Lauer? Release the women from their confidentiality obligations.”
Matt Lauer was one of the many liberal hypocrites brought down by the “#MeToo” movement.
Many Americans believe Lauer’s corporate bosses knew full well the extent of his alleged abuses of women, but let it slide because of his high salary and prominent on-air role.
Megyn Kelly’s suggestion of an independent investigation may be the only way to ensure accountability and justice.
