In a recent podcast episode, Megyn Kelly passionately defended Tucker Carlson and, in doing so, disclosed some unflattering information regarding her own departure from Fox News.
Credit should be given to Kelly for being one of Tucker’s most fervent defenders during all of this.
It’s important to note that Megyn Kelly’s departure from Fox News was entirely her own decision. Despite being at the pinnacle of her career, she chose to pursue something new.
While she was given the opportunity to host a final show and say one last goodbye to her audience, she has since claimed that the things surrounding her departure got nasty.
In the video below, Megyn Kelly asserts that the only reason she can speak about these things is because she chose not to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
As per Kelly’s statements, she faced immense pressure to sign the non-disclosure agreement and suffered a huge financial cut due to her choice to decline it.
Additionally, she alleges that the network proposed to fire Irena Briganti, the Fox News Channel executive who has been accused of acting as a hatchet woman for high-ranking officials within the organization, in exchange for her remaining with the network.
At the outset of the video, Megyn is giving advice to Tucker. However, this advice is now inconsequential as Tucker has already declared his plan to continue his program via Twitter.
Then, Kelly delves into the recent bad ratings for Fox News prime time lineup and asserts that the network is attempting to silence Tucker ahead of the 2024 election.
Kelly highlights that Tucker isn’t motivated by the money but rather by the opportunity to address his audience, the people.
Lastly, she gets into the details of her separation from Fox News and provides insight into what truly occurred.
For those intrigued by the Tucker Carlson story and the behind-the-scenes workings of the news media industry, there are numerous insider details to be found here.
The whole video is worth watching, but if you just want to hear Megyn talking about her negative experience leaving Fox News, skip to the 7:30 mark.
