Her colleague at the time Bill O’Reilly, who himself is currently embroiled in a sexual-harassment scandal following reports from The New York Times that he and the network paid over $13 million in settlements to former female staffers, took exception to Kelly’s remarks about the network and boss Ailes. “I’ve had enough of it. It’s a good place to work, all right?” The O’Reilly Factor host said in a 2016 interview with CBS This Morning, saying, “It’s open season, ‘Let’s whack the Fox News Channel.’ ”
He added that he had no interest in discussing a topic that “makes my network look bad.”
Kelly responded to the comments by sending a frustrated email to Fox News executives, saying O’Reilly’s words and behavior could have a damaging effect on women working at the company and others across the country, according to reports by the Times.
