Fewer than 48 hours after Saturday’s New York Times story on former FNC analyst Lis Whiel‘s $32 million sexual harassment settlement with Bill O’Reilly broke, NBC News’s Megyn Kelly decided to speak out. Kelly gave a passionate four-minute monologue on her program addressing sexual harassment and Fox News.
“Fox News was not exactly a friendly environment for harassment victims who wanted to report, in my experience,” said Kelly. “However, O’Reilly’s suggestion that no one complained about his behavior is false, I know because I complained.”
To prove her point, Kelly read a November 2016 email to then-Fox News co-president Bill Shine and current Fox News executive Jack Abernethy. In the email, shown below, Kelly indeed complained about workplace harassment.
NBC News just published the email Kelly read this morning on the program:
