Megyn Kelly is even slimier than I thought. She admitted Wednesday that she KNEW about the allegations surrounding ruined TV host Matt Lauer, and she did nothing. Instead of admitting to her cowardice, she attempted to gloss over it.
“I didn’t have any official knowledge but because of the work I do and the stories I cover and the connections I have in the industry, I have a general feel for – I knew the Charlie Rose thing was coming – and I’d heard rumors about Matt but that’s all they were,” she defended herself.
“My feeling on it was a rumor is not the same as reportable fact. I knew people were sniffing around the issue and, you know, hoped it wasn’t true.”
Unfortunately for at least one unnamed woman, the rumors were true. Kelly the investigative journalist ignored a bombshell story.
“If a woman came to me at NBC news and said this has happened to me, a) I would advise her on what to do and b) I would work it behind the scenes even if I had to go into the bosses office and say ‘here’s a name, do some investigating, I’m not going to tell you who reported it, I don’t have to,’” she continued.
“Powerful women need to be there for less powerful women so that they can grow into powerful women.”
Kelly obviously considers herself to be among the powerful women, but she did nothing to help Lauer’s potential victim. Now that the woman’s allegations have been somewhat substantiated, Kelly is pretending to be a champion of women’s rights.
“As painful as this moment is, for so many here at NBC, today, at CBS earlier this month, at Fox News over the last year, in Hollywood this fall, it is a sign of progress, of women finding their voices, their courage and of the erosion of a shameful power imbalance,” Kelly said.
