NBC insider: Megyn Kelly is milking the #MeToo movement

“I know too much that others don’t know,” Kelly said after the mag asked if she thought Lauer could make a comeback from his epic sexual-misconduct scandal.

The comment did not go over well with some veterans at NBC.

“There were a lot of eye rolls. What does she really know? She’s not close to anyone here,” scoffed an insider.

The insider added, “She’s milking the #MeToo movement. People are counting down the days until she’s gone.”

Kelly went on, “All I’m going to say is that I feel very strongly about the #MeToo coverage, the importance of doing it without fear or favor.”

A source close to Kelly said they believe staffers sympathetic to Lauer were behind our insider’s Kelly diss.

An NBC rep added: “Whoever is saying this is trying to start a war that doesn’t exist. Her show is empowering and engaging, and we’re especially proud of her coverage of . . . #MeToo.”
