“The question is open as to whether [NBC] put dollars ahead of decency, about whether they were more interested in protecting their star anchor than they were in protecting the women of the company,” Kelly told Carlson. “There needs to be an outside investigation into this company. They investigated themselves. That doesn’t work.”

She pointed to Fox News, CBS News, NPR and the NFL and other organizations that had hired third-party investigators to aid in probes, and criticized NBC News leaders Andy Lack and Noah Oppenheim, who have come under fire in recent days in the wake of Farrow’s book.

“If these are the people overseeing the investigation into NBC — they had Kim Harris, the general counsel, do the investigation — then how are people supposed to trust it? That’s why you’ve got to get somebody on the outside.”

Kelly went on to question whether NBC News’s choices surrounding the network’s Weinstein coverage was a political decision or whether it was “something else.”
