Megyn Kelly revealed more details about the alleged sexual harassment she endured from Fox News boss Roger Ailes, and her experience was truly shocking. Poor Megyn felt reporting the disgusting behavior would have been career ‘suicide’! Click through to watch her explain in a new interview.
Megyn sat down with George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America on November 15, and revealed harrowing details about her time working with Roger Ailes at Fox News.

“I avoided Roger for six months, after my supervisor suggested that was the proper course to pursue,” Megyn said. “It soon became clear to me after reading the allegations that at least an investigation was necessary…Realistically, that would have been a suicide mission for me and my career (to come forward about the alleged harassment). Because I had been at the company for 12 months when he was doing this to me.
“I wasn’t ‘Megyn Kelly’ of today. I had no power,” she said. “And he was on the cover of Industry magazine as the most powerful man in news. There was no one to go to. If I had gone to the general counsel of the company, there would have been me, first-year person, against the CEO of the company.”
This is just devastating. No woman, no person should ever have to experience this. Megyn divulged more details about her experience working with Roger at Fox News in her memoir, Settle For More, saying he “pushed limits.” By that, she means he allegedly asked her about what bras she wears, and said other inappropriate things!
