Bill O'Reilly Hasn't Read Megyn Kelly's Book, Says 'I'm Not Interested in Making My Network Look Bad'

Do we sense some bad blood lingering at Fox News?

With Donald Trump headed to the White House, you’d figure the conservative cable news network would be celebrating this week. But the release of anchor Megyn Kelly‘s new memoir Settle for More, with accusations of sexual harassment against former network chairman Roger Ailes, has pitted some Fox News loyalists against her. And Bill O’Reilly is clear which side he’s on.

In an interview with CBS This Morning on Tuesday, O’Reilly was asked about Kelly’s new book, and said he hasn’t read it yet: “I’m trying to stay out of any of that kind of stuff.” He wished Kelly well, and called her “a very smart woman.” But when pressed on the issue, he said, “I want to be very candid here: I’m not that interested in this… I’m not interested in making my network look bad. At all. That doesn’t interest me one bit.” (It’s worth noting that he does seem to realize that Kelly’s book makes his network look bad.)

O’Reilly insisted that he doesn’t have time for things like that: “I’ve got a country that’s in a political transition. I’ve got a kids’ book that I want millions of kids to look at. That’s what I’m interested in. Not making my network look bad.”

This tiff comes as Kelly is negotiating a possible contract extension with Fox News. (Her contract expires next July.) Her show The Kelly File and O’Reilly’s show The O’Reilly Factor currently air back-to-back in Fox News’ primetime lineup.

Whose side are you on: Bill O’Reilly’s, or Megyn Kelly’s? Hit the comments and explain your reasoning. (Keeping it as civil as possible, of course.)

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Don’t worry Bill. Most of us know what faux news is, you can’t make it any badder. Damn Norah O’Donnell is so beautiful.

    • Ella says:

      Fox News is definitely biased to the right, but if you actually think you’re getting unbiased journalism from main stream media, you’re delusional.
      It’s absolutely pathetic that journalists insert their opinions and feelings into their reporting. That’s not what journalism is supposed to be.

      • luke says:

        Where did I mention main stream media? Speaking of which, it is the term that the right leaning folk like to use to attack or smear…

  2. Collette says:

    Off point but O’Reilly is a rude overbearing jerk. He talks over and/or interrupts his guests and is dismissive of any opinion that contradicts his own. I watch Fox sometimes, but never his show.

  3. Jimmy says:

    Why does Kelly stay with this network? I know she’s trying to get a big payday, which is fine, but go to a network that will treat her with a little more respect. CNN and MSNBC would grab her up in a heartbeat.

    • Anne says:

      Ya sure she’s intelligent and has been a voice for sexual harassment in media….but she’s still a horrible bigot who has spent her career passing judgment on people of colour, women, gay people, etc. She uses progressive language and opinions when it suits her but she’s conservative to the core. Left leaning networks wouldn’t want to deal with her bigotry and right leaning networks won’t want to work with someone who brought up sexual harassment in the workplace. She’s stuck at Fox

    • Glenn Adams says:

      Respect is earned. Megyn Kelly has shown her true colors.. Megyn Kelly’s viewers made her and her viewers can and will take her down.. I suggest she make the move to CNN or MSNBC where all the losers end up.. jmo

    • Glenn Adams says:

      Because Fox is the number rated cable TV network.. After reading most of the comments on this page, it would be reasonable to conclude that most watch other TV networks; CNN, MSNBC, etc. Many viewers of these HRC Networks likely believe that WikiLeaks are the marketing strategy for Joe The Plumber…jmo

    • Todd MIchalec says:

      Megyn Kelly is so despised by most FOX viewers(not just Trump supporters)b/c of her attitude,editing video,words,etc. to fit her narrative like Michelle Fields sham she edited “pulled to the ground,etc” out of video about Lewendowski who prosecutors said did SS job filling in gap where she charged at Trump,violating SS directions to leave YET Kelly has her back on to ask if she feels vindicated when Trump let him go even though Fields/Boyfriend almost got prosecuted! She has Glen Beck on AFTER HIS horrid 911 victims/families comments,Khan is no “gold star family” yet she refers to them as good people even tho he has afghani ties & both believe in shariah law,,etc. She made all her shows antiTrump w/same lame guests,just look at her Twitter,FB,ALL Social Media is 90%+ NEGATIVE she must leave or us boycotting her show will also BOYCOTT ALL FOX EVERYTHING!!

  4. Jj says:

    The falafel king has done a perfectly good job of making his network look bad himself.

  5. 180truenorth says:

    Bill O’Reilly’s, Megyn Kelly is a political hack. Wikileaks revealed that she was reading questions to political pundits. Kelly is riding on the coat tails of Bill O’Reilly’s show. Everyone at Fox knows this. Put here on a different time slot and her numbers would plummet except for the pervs and liberals that watch her show. But of course Fox doesn’t want that. She definitely is a smart woman and highly attractive but like Newt said, she was obsessed with talking about sex. And yea, people are too busy living their own lives to be reading about Megyn Kelly life.

    • Mary says:

      Newt is the definition of a typical white male hypocrite pure and simple. As far as Bill he doesn’t have to make the network look bad it has already happened, especially with the outing of Roger. It is obvious you don’t grasp the concept between sexual assault and sex, and neither does Newt, but that doesn’t surprise me.

    • Todd says:

      MEGYN KELLY IS AN UGKY STICK SKANK WHO NEEDED COVERED UP IN HER REVEALING SPREAD BUT SHE DOESNT TOLERATE “objectifying women” LMAO SHES HISTORY AND ITS ALL OVER TALK RADIO THE GREAT JUDGE JANINE IS TAKING HER PLACE BUT HANNITY GETTING 8:00pm BACK SINCE HIS RATINGS HAVE OUTDONE ALL OTHERS LAST FEW MONTHS…BYE BYE BITCH MEGYN!!

  6. Shame on Kelly says:

    Seriously, Who cares. Who gives a s*** about Megyn Kelly. She is a smart, a political antagonist, manipulating the debate and a total liberal working for an ultra right news network. That’s sleeping with the enemy. What a lil user.

  7. Zak Smith says:

    Fox is the only decent network left. Why crap on that ?

    • HAP says:

      I always have to laugh at folks that attack Kelly. How many other cable news anchors have bar privileges to practice law in DC and New York. She’s no dummy.

  8. Marco Piazzo says:

    Good news Billy, whatever you do you can’t make your network look WORSE. I mean, you could show all kinds of porn 24/7 and it would be an improvement.

  9. Funk O Mart says:

    CBS HAS NOTHING ELSE TO DO IN THE MORNING THAN TO PROMOTE A STUPID BOOK! MEGYN KELLY IS JUST THINKING ABOUT $$$$$$$$$!!!!! LOSERS!

  10. Mary Green says:

    I am for Bill. If Megan was as smart as she thinks she is, why didn’t she do something about it at the time. If she was so smart she could have went to work for any of the other failing news network. But no, she wanted to use her sexuality to promote herself to the limit, then when she has met that limit she uses these charges to further her career. Fox needs to replace her since she has been so mistreated.

    • Mary says:

      Wow I expect responses like that from ignorant men trying to save face, but it still surprises me how women who are jealous of others success can be down right vicious.
      I have come to the conclusion that the ones who refuse to even entertain that this is a real problem in high power positions have never held one or believe it is justify in some way.

  11. C. Bagi says:

    O’Reilly’s, O’Reilly’s, O’Reilly’s. She craves attention and has aspirations to become the next Barbara Walters.

    • sharon says:

      I stand with Bill O Reilly. Megyn is the reason we quit watching FOX she is a downer. Her And Rachel Maddow
      Share the same ratings very low which obviously tells you we the people don’t like her enough said

  12. I dont think BOR was meaning to diss her-its just that whenever hes on these shows, he pushes and PUSHES his new books ONLY-he even does it on his show many times an episode!

  13. HAP says:

    I always have to laugh at folks that attack Kelly. How many other cable news anchors have bar privileges to practice law in DC and New York. She’s no dummy.

  14. Jennifer Hayden says:

    Just him being on that network makes that network look bad.

  15. Jennifer Hayden says:

    His being on that network makes his network look bad.

  16. Maureen Quinn says:

    Norah O’Donnell bullying guests and acting like a total ass . . . again.

  17. Karoline says:

    Face it, NONE of the news media outlets are credible. They all have their own agenda.

    The END

  18. Mario says:

    Bill O’reilly (the biggest blowhard on TV) should stick his new children’s book up his ass a million times instead of a million kids buying it.

  19. Cindy says:

    O’Reilly is right. Megyn Kelly claims, in her book, that a Fox driver poisoned her coffee. She has denied that even though she clearly wrote it in her book. She claims, in her book, that Trump got debate questions. She now denies that claim even though she clearly wrote it. Megyn Kelly has publicly sung the praises of Roger Ailes for years. She was suposedly going to dedicate her book to him as her mentor. In reality, Ailes pushed Kelly to where she is today. So, she repays him but piling on some flimsy, 10 year old, attempt to hit on her in her book. There is just something unseemly about all of this and her.

  20. Fatima says:

    Bill O. No1 wants to watch Kelly. They tube in to Bill and Hannity. You could have a slug and people would keep tV on between them. Kelly lost her credibility. Guilfoyle is better- I love her legal analysis. Harris Faulkner is wonderful . People are turning off Fox because of Megyn.

  21. Lynda johnson says:

    Megan Kelly is very arrogant and in love with herself. We turn her off and refuse to watch her snippy comments. She is a disgrace to Fox News.

  22. Howard Fitzgerald says:

    Bill O’ is correct. Meygan Kelly is a self absorbed diva and has to throw in her immature dramatic nonsense to her interviews because she thinks her immature audience needs her excitement to stay interested. I am glad I have began taping Lou Dobbs and watch him when she is cluttering FoxNews. Bill is a serious journalist and appreciates the network that he has built with Ailes.

  23. Donna Loker says:

    Cannot stand her. Every debate night and election night I had to
    Look at her ugly face. I chose to watch cnn because of the distain
    I have towards her. Fox should not renew her contract. Many people feel the way I do. Love Tucker!! As Laura Ingram would say: Suck it up buttercup

  24. Toby says:

    I think the revelations that Megan made about Roger Ailes are suspect when she releases these long ago charges in a new book!
    Her over reaction regarding Trump are much ado about nothing. Especially from some one who goes on air in a black slip! By the way enough already of the book pushing!

  25. Hanky says:

    These CBS globalists are nothing but childish trash. It’s no wonder they lost the election even after hitting Trump with everything that they could.

  26. Bill Cord says:

    Stopped watching Kelly’s show when she continued attacks on Trump. Trump can help save this country from becoming overrun with illegal third world persons that over time will ruin the United States.

    Either Kelly does not understand that or does not care, which puts her on the side of liberal democrats more concerned with trying to save the rest of the world instead of saving our country.

  27. Lana says:

    Bill is a true journalist. Kelly has set women back 100 years with her transparent desk. Quite a double standard all in the love of money. She is a self promoter and needs to focus more on the news for America. Very unusual for such a strong very outspoken person to remain somewhere for such an extended period with alleged sexual harassment. Incredible for an attorney as well. Go figure (as she is figuring her loot)

  28. diane says:

    I know a few women like Megyn Kelly. Playing victim gets them attention, and they usually embellish and milk it for all it’s worth. Good luck FOX. She will leave and then claim being a FOX victim. Sad, because she is otherwise an intelligent woman. After a while, she will claim being victimized by her new employer.

  29. Todd MIchalec says:

    Megyn Kelly is so despised by most FOX viewers(not just Trump supporters)b/c of her attitude,editing video,words,etc. to fit her narrative like Michelle Fields sham she edited “pulled to the ground,etc” out of video about Lewendowski who prosecutors said did SS job filling in gap where she charged at Trump,violating SS directions to leave YET Kelly has her back on to ask if she feels vindicated when Trump let him go even though Fields/Boyfriend almost got prosecuted!

  30. ROB ROY says:

    Judging from the title of her new book, it makes me wonder what she expects her salary top be next year. Also, it seems strange that the network will give her so much TV time to promote her new book. She should just stick with the news.

  31. Brian Teely says:

    Megan has made it all about her. We have a new President, there’s a lot of things to pay attention to. She wants you to pay attention to her. Boring as hell.

  32. MARGE HOLLINGSWORTH says:

    NO MAJOR LOSS TO THE NETWORK. BILL OREILLY AND SHAWN HANNITY MAKE THE SHOW I’D TURN OFF FOX NEWS WHENEVER SHE GAME ON ANYWAY. GLAD TO SEE HER GO.!!!!
