Megyn Kelly’s career at Fox News was clouded in controversy.
But now Kelly wants to set the record straight.
And Megyn Kelly revealed a big lie about a scandal that nearly ended her career.
Hollywood put out the “Oscar bait” movie “Bombshell” which told the story of Fox News anchors – led by Megyn Kelly – that exposed the alleged acts of sexual harassment by former network President Roger Ailes.
The movie producers and director were all Fox hating fanatics so they took creative liberties with events to paint Fox News and conservatives in the worst light possible.
Kelly finally broke her silence on the movie and addressed the film’s lies and inaccuracies in an interview for Kelly’s new YouTube news show with three other women that lobbed sexual harassment allegations against Ailes and Fox News.
Kelly began with the most famous moment of her career – the moment from the first Republican Presidential debate in Cleveland where Kelly personally attacked Donald Trump with a gotcha question about comments he made in the past about women.
“Bombshell” claimed Kelly ran the question by Ailes and network founder Rupert Murdoch.
The film alleges Murdoch and Ailes loved the question when in fact Ailes reprimanded her for using a debate to push a radical feminist agenda to smear Trump.
“The notion that Roger [Ailes] liked the Donald Trump women question because it created controversy in a TV moment was not true,” Kelly explained. “Roger did not like the question at all and was very angry at me for asking it and at one point actually said to me, ‘no more female empowerment stuff!’”
Kelly also stated that the film lied when it showed conservatives angrily protesting Kelly at the Republican National Convention the next summer.
In addition, Kelly claimed the movie gave a pass to Fox News executive Irena Briganti for planting negative news stories about Kelly in the press.
“The notion that Irena Briganti did not plant hit pieces on the talent is a fantasy,” Kelly said as the other women laughed and agreed. “That is the number one thing they got wrong. Irena 100% would hit talent and did many times.”
Finally, Kelly wonders what would have happened had she spoken up sooner.
Kelly speculated it would have been the end of her career.
“I’ve looked back on my own life, every moment from that moment forward, and I do wish I had done more,” Kelly speculated. “Even though I was powerless, even though it would have been a suicidal move for me career wise. What if I had just said, screw it?”
“What if I had thrown myself in the fire back then? Maybe that wouldn’t have happened to you,” Kelly concluded.
In the end, Kelly’s career on cable news likely ended anyway.
Fox News does not want her back anytime soon and there is no way fake news CNN would hire Kelly since Kelly has made positive comments about Donald Trump since leaving NBC.
