First, Gretchen Carlson accused Fox News' Roger Ailes of sexual harassment, and then six more (as yet unnamed) women followed suit. Now, another woman has come forward with her own accusations of Ailes, and it was the one woman everyone was wondering about—Megyn Kelly. Kelly reportedly told investigators that Roger Ailes came on to her at Fox about 10 years ago.

This last bit of news might be the impetus behind Rupert Murdoch and sons James and Lachlan's rush to get Ailes out of the company. Kelly is especially important to Fox ever since her very public squabble with Donald Trump put her in the public eye as a "feminist icon." And with Bill O'Reilly possibly considering retirement, Fox feels she's crucial to the network's future.
