When it comes to the #MeToo movement, Megyn Kelly has been quite vocal. And when it hit NBC, she didn’t shy away from it. In fact, shortly after Matt Lauer was let go from “Today” for alleged sexual misconduct, she had Addie Zinone on her show to discuss the relations she’d had with Matt when she was a 24-year-old production assistant.
Megyn was recently asked if she thought Matt could come back from the situation. She wouldn’t say, but noted: “I know too much that others don’t know.” Another thing she wouldn’t comment on? Whether she got any pushback from the network for doing the segment.
“All I’m gong to say is that I feel very strongly about the #MeToo coverage, the importance of doing it without fear or favor,” she explained. “I didn’t let anyone stop me at Fox, and I’m not going to let anyone stop me at NBC.”
- As for other men who’ve been compromised, Megyn said, “I feel it’s a case-by-case basis. I don’t think we need to see Harvey Weinstein in polite society ever again, but I don’t think that’s true of everyone. I think, for some of these guys, there’s a way forward. I happen to believe it starts with a full-throated apology, and not just this paper statement of, ‘I did some things wrong and I’m sorry.’”
