Megyn Kelly Explains Why She Refused To Stay Silent About Alleged Sexual Harassment By Roger Ailes

"I believe that Roger Ailes made the company look bad."

Megyn Kelly is standing up and speaking out.

In her new memoir Settle for More, Megyn Kelly describes the alleged sexual advances of ousted Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. Released excerpts of her book brought back a firestorm around Ailes and Fox News, where several other women — including Gretchen Carlson — had accused Ailes of unwanted advances. 

Earlier this week, Bill O'Reilly went on Good Morning America and addressed Kelly's accusations with a dismissive tone, saying that he wasn't "interested in making my network look bad. At all."

But Kelly, who is renegotiating her contract with FoxNews, declined to stay quiet.

"I believe that Roger Ailes made the company look bad," Kelly said. "My heart is with other women out there. And trust me, this doesn't just happen at Fox News. We got rid of ours. And there are men, trust me, out there right now who are doing this to other women. And other women who are watching this right now who don't know what to do."

She also added some context to her decision to write about her experience in her book.

"I discussed this with Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch before I wrote this chapter in my book, and we were all on the same page that this is an important chapter to include," Kelly said. "And I was proud of them that they feel as I do, which is sunlight is the best disinfectant."
