"You know, am I mad at God? Yeah, I'm mad at him," the former Fox News host said on his podcast, No Spin News. "I wish I had more protection. I wish this stuff didn't happen. I can't explain it to you. If I die tomorrow and I get the opportunity I’ll say, "Why did you guys work me over like that?' Didn't you know my children are going to be punished and they're innocent. But then I think about people who have it much, much rougher than me. And you know, I'm a big mouth. I'm a target. They're not targets."
Megyn Kelly renewed her attack on her former Fox News colleague Tuesday after a bombshell report in The New York Times alleged that he paid former O’Reilly Factor contributor Lis Wiehl $32 million to settle sexual misconduct claims.
Kelly says Fox News retaliated against another of O'Reilly's accusers, Juliet Huddy, for appearing on her show, Megyn Kelly Today on Monday.
“O’Reilly accuser Juliet Huddy, a former Fox News anchor was here yesterday…speaking about the downsides of settling the cases like this which typically, and in her case, result in nondisclosure agreements. Which basically shut the accusers up,” Kelly said Tuesday morning.
Kelly added that Huddy “was open here about her fear in saying anything at all.”
As Huddy was being interviewed by Kelly, Fox News fired her brother, John Huddy.
John Huddy, a foreign correspondent based in Jerusalem was "terminated," but a spokesman for the network says his dismissal was over “a physical altercation earlier this month."
