Independent journalist and podcaster Megyn Kelly scoffed at a former Fox News colleague for seemingly being an apologist for Jeff Zucker, the now-ousted CNN president who was having an affair with another network executive in apparent violation of company disclosure policy.

Zucker, whom Fox News host Tucker Carlson has nicknamed the “dwarf king,” abruptly resigned on Wednesday in what is allegedly collateral damage from the Chris Cuomo firing.

As Kelly implied, common sense suggests that perhaps more revelations and improprieties might emerge in the coming days and weeks.

According to Politico:

“Two sources with knowledge of the situation not authorized to speak publicly said that Cuomo’s legal team, which continues to negotiate his exit from the network, raised issues about the relationship between Zucker and [Allison] Gollust. Cuomo’s legal team asserted that Zucker was hypocritical to suggest Cuomo had a personal conflict of interest when the relationship with Gollust represented a potential conflict as well.”


Zucker and Gollust are divorced from their former spouses.

The fact that CNN’s ratings have hit rock bottom as liberal Zucker, a Harvard University graduate continued to operate the channel like an around-the-clock anti-Trump, anti-GOP extravaganza, may have also played a role in his separation.

On Twitter, Megyn Kelly reacted to CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota, the formerFox & Friends” co-host who tried to give Zucker — a man whom ex-President Trump energetically described on Wednesday upon hearing the news as a “world-class sleazebag” — an emotional send-off, or perhaps provide some damage control.

Kelly wasn’t having it, however.

Tell it to the women who got passed over for a promotion so the boss’s lover could have the spot. Are there any? Have you checked? Then stop defending this,” Kelly wrote on Twitter. She has also covered the scandal on her podcast.

“This is an incredible loss. Jeff is a remarkable person and an incredible leader,” Camerota said on Wednesday during a “CNN Newsroom” broadcast. “He has this uncanny ability to make, I think, every one of us feel special and valuable in our own way, even though he is managing an international news organization of thousands of people.

“I just know he had this unique ability to make us feel special. And I don’t think that comes around all the time and I think, again, it’s an incredible loss…These are two consenting adults who are both executives — that they can’t have a private relationship feels wrong on some level,” Camerota, who seemed to have bought in to the liberal narrative as soon as Zucker hired her in 2014, added.

According to the New York Post, the job of so-called media reporter Brian Stelter, the journalist Carlson refers to as the “eunuch,” could also be in jeopardy for failing to bring to light the Zucker-Gollust relationship, even though it apparently was an open secret.

Both Kelly and Camerota had previously accused the late Roger Ailes, when he was the Fox News CEO, of allegedly sexually harassing them.

Megyn Kelly has expressed other opinions about the CNN scandal, including casting doubt on whether Zucker’s paramour, executive VP and chief marketing officer Allison Gollust, who reportedly was disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s communications director for a brief period of time, will be able to stay on the network payroll.

Even Katie Couric apparently had an inkling that something odd was going on:

As they say on TV, stay tuned.
