'Fox News was not exactly a friendly environment for harassment victims who wanted to report, in my experience, ' said Kelly, who spent over a decade at the network before making the move to NBC.
"I urge you to think about what you put in your newspaper". O'Reilly has said the New York Times story is misleading, but that he can not give details for legal reasons. The New York Times wants to take me out of the marketplace, this is the second time they have attacked me. "I wish this stuff didn't happen". I was truly touched - I know how busy you are, especially that time of day.
"Apologies to Eric Bolling and prayers for him and his family".
Former Fox News host Eric Bolling was furious after Bill O'Reilly said in an interview Monday that Eric Bolling Jr. died because of the sexual harassment allegations against his father that surfaced in August.
O'Reilly said of his accusers: 'If they could literally kill me, they would'. "That's what this is all about".
O'Reilly then invoked the death of Bolling's 19-year-old son Eric Chase Bolling to win sympathy for his argument that he was the victim of a liberal conspiracy to ruin his life, which in turn was devastating his children.
In response to Mr O'Reilly's comments, Ms Kelly said, she wrote to her bosses: "Perhaps he didn't realise the kind of message his criticism sends to young women across the country about how men continue to view the issues of speaking out about sexual harassment".
O'Reilly's latest comments also come after he was attacked by former colleague Megyn Kelly on her eponymous hour of "Today". "O'Reilly's suggestion that no one ever complained about his behavior is false", she said.
O'Reilly later said on Glenn Beck's radio program: 'I never had any problem with Megyn Kelly.
"I have been in the broadcast business for 43 years with 12 different companies", he began, "and not one time was there any complaint filed against me". "I don't know why Megyn Kelly is doing what she's doing".
He added that he called her actions "incomprehensible", stating: "I have dramatically helped her in her career".
