(SNews) – Megyn Kelly broke her silence on Fox News leaking video footage of Tucker Carlson by saying the Rupert Murdoch-led network is trying to destroy its ex-star anchor. Kelly said:
“Fox News is trying to destroy Tucker (it’s drip drip drip every day with the hits). Truly disgusting behavior, most likely by their chief PR hack Irena Briganti but let’s face it – if her bosses wanted it to stop, it would.”
In one video Carlson tells someone who is off-camera, “You wouldn’t. Okay? I’m not, you know what, I’m not qualified on that score. I will say, I thought his girlfriend was kind of yummy.
“Just kidding, in case this is being pulled off the bird (Satellite). Hey, Media Matters for America, go f*ck yourseIf, I don’t even know what his girlfriend looks like. And if I did, I would not find her yummy.”

CARLSON: Yeah, they really mean it from the owners on down. It’s cool. It’s cool to see it. I like that. It’s a good — you know, people are nice in this company, I think. They’ve always been nice to me, anyway.
MORGAN: I completely agree. Everyone’s been very, very friendly and very nice and I really appreciate it. But thank you so much for coming on.
CARLSON: Yeah I bet that doesn’t change. Of course! Of course.
MORGAN: It’s just great to have you on my show. I mean, I’ve been on yours enough times. It’s great.
CARLSON: I think it’s totally cool. So let’s —– is, if we’re going to talk about sex, I’d love to hit some of the fine points of technique, but, you know, but it’s your show. It’s totally up to you.
