‘DISRESPECTFUL AND GROSS’: MEGYN KELLY TORCHES FOX NEWS AFTER SOURCE REVEALS NEW INFO

Megyn Kelly didn’t hold back during her SiriusXM podcast when she was talking about the situation with Fox News and Tucker Carlson. Kelly was revealing some information she received from a source and said that Tucker Carlson may not be technically fired just yet. It was more like a dismissal and kicking him off the air, not letting him do another show. Fox News and Tucker Carlson, according to Megyn Kelly’s source, will now have to come to an agreement on how Tucker will exit Fox News officially. Kelly, the firebrand podcaster, said the way Fox News has handled this situation has been nothing less than ‘disrespectful and gross.’

This may be why there hasn’t been much said on the side of Fox News. A partial transcript from the Megyn Kelly video clip is below, as transcribed by Real Clear Politics:

MEGYN KELLY: Tucker Carlson hasn’t actually been fired. He’s still an employee of the Fox News Channel. What happened was Suzanne Scott called him – she’s the CEO – on Monday morning and said he was not going to be allowed to do any more shows, and that he had been kicked out of his company email. And now they’re going to have to negotiate an exit. Some reporting to me suggests that she said it’s going to be an amicable parting. Right? Isn’t it? Completely catching Tucker off guard, but Tucker’s not fired. That’s my information, that he still needs to negotiate the exit…

They pulled his show up off the air. They also fired his Executive Producer Justin Wells, and though he tried to find out why they wouldn’t tell him. They refused to tell him why. I mean, to me, that’s just so disheartening. He’s been at the company for years. He’d been in the primetime for seven years and saw Fox News through one of the most difficult times in its history, the immediate era post Roger Ailes where they didn’t know left, right, they didn’t know up from down. They really didn’t have strong management leaving the company. And they had lost two of their biggest stars, Bill O’Reilly and me, at least at that time…

So why? Why now? What was it that led them to treat their number one star with such disdain? I mean dripping disdain, to the point where he can no longer access his email, he doesn’t get to tell his own team, he doesn’t get to say goodbye? I mean, it’s absolutely disrespectful to him. And unlike Don Lemon, he hadn’t been immersed in controversy after controversy inside the building against his own colleagues. Yes, the leftist media had been coming after him repeatedly…

So what was it? What would make your own company turn against you like that? The Fox News audience is clearly mad and I don’t blame them. It’ll be interesting to see what the ratings were for the 8pm hour last night…I just think the way they handled it was disrespectful and gross. And I think Tucker Carlson deserved better. I certainly hope that he uses Brian Friedman, my own lawyer, to get the remainder of his contract.
