Bombshell: Megyn Kelly Discusses Film about Roger Ailes and Herself

Megyn Kelly broke her silence on Bombshell, the feature that examines the sexist culture of Fox News Channel under founding executive Roger Ailes.

Kelly posted a video in which she and other former Fox News staffers screened the film, which stars Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, and Margot Robbie.

The timing of her reaction is safe and calculated: Polls for the Oscar nominations have closed on January 7, and the feature left empty the Golden Globes on Sunday January 5.

I have to admit that I am not a big fan of Bombshell, and think that the TV series, The Loudest Voice, is far superior.

Bombshell examines the events that transpired leading up to Ailes’ ouster in 2016 after former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson levied allegations of harassment against him. Ailes, who died in 2017, denied the claims.

Kelly held a roundtable discussion with former Fox co-workers Juliet Huddy, Rudi Bakhtiar and Julie Zann, in which Kelly’s husband, Douglas Brunt, also took part.
