(Newser) – Meygn Kelly's new morning show initially grabbed headlines for all the wrong reasons, but today it's making waves for her candor about Bill O'Reilly, whose show preceded hers when the two were at Fox News. Kelly's words were sparked by O'Reilly's response to a New York Times report that said O'Reilly received a fresh contract with Fox after he reached a $32 million settlement with analyst Lis Wiehl to settle a sexual harassment claim. O'Reilly's response, through a rep, included a claim that no woman had gone to HR with a complaint about him during his 21 years with the network. Kelly firmly denounced that, per Today.com, saying, "O'Reilly's suggestion that no one ever complained about his behavior is false. I know because I complained." Kelly left the network in January 2017; O'Reilly was fired in April. More:
