Another Shoe Drops

When sexual-harassment charges against Roger Ailes of Fox News surfaced, I wondered what star Megyn Kelly would have to say. It has taken awhile, but she is reported by CNBC to have indicated receiving similar salacious comments from him ten years ago.

The time lag doesn't make Kelly look good, having sat on her harassment charges for a decade. I wonder if Ailes' comments to Gretchen Carlson also happened long ago, but have only surfaced now when Ailes decided not to renew her contract.

I make no excuses for the casting room couch, it's vile. However, if women were offended by his interest why didn't their offense become public sooner? Surfacing now, it looks like getting even after taking his pay for years.
