Fox News to lose Megyn Kelly to CNN

Megyn Kelly has become a huge star in cable news and the number one network, Fox News, may lose their number one female anchor.

Today, the Drudge Report posted a picture of Megyn Kelly with the headline “Exclusive: Megyn Kelly May Jump Network”.

Drudge is reporting that Jeff Zucker, the head of CNN is doing everything he can to get Megyn Kelly. A source close to the dealings between Kelly and CNN said Zucker is moving mountains.

“He is moving the Himalayan Mountains to get her, but they are tripped up on money. He simply can’t pay her the $20 million a year FOX has on the table.”

Her stardom would rise, but would she ever leave Fox?

During the summer months of 2016, Fox News was caught in a sexual abuse scandal. Roger Ailes, the only CEO Fox News has ever had, was accused of sexual assault or sexual harassment by several leading ladies at Fox News.

Gretchen Carlson, the former 1989 Miss America, accused her co-host Steve Doocy and Roger Ailes for sexual harassment. Gretchen settled out of court for $20 million.

Andrea Tantaros, who also accused Ailes of sexual misconduct was offered a seven-figure settlement, but refused it according to Tantaros’ lawyer in a statement to Variety.

Megyn Kelly was also one of the ladies that Ailes was inappropriate with and allegedly made unwanted sexual advances. When other top anchors came out to support Ailes as the allegations were flying over the summer, Megyn was silent.

Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Greta Van Susteren and many more supported Ailes, but the allegations became too much and the CEO was let go.

Megyn Kelly wanted Ailes out and she got what she wanted, and as the election moved into the final months, more controversy started to bubble.

Fellow Fox anchor Sean Hannity attacked Kelly and called her a Clinton supporter back in October.

Tensions have cooled since the election, and Fox News finished with its highest month in four years. A lot of that has to do with Megyn Kelly.

Kelly’s show, The Kelly File had its most watched month since it launched with 3.4 million total viewers.

To top it all off, Megyn Kelly’s new book, “Settle for More” was also released in November and hit number one on the New York Times best seller list. Her ratings rival Bill O’Reilly is number two on the list.

Megyn Kelly is on top of her game, and if there was ever a time she could capitalize on a move, it would be right now. She has a hit show, she has a hit book and she is respected for going head to head against Trump.

If what Drudge is reporting is true, and Kelly is leaving Fox News, she couldn’t have picked a better time.

Plus if she does leave Fox, she will most likely be put in the 8pm spot which would give her the chance to go head to head with Bill O’Reilly, and that may be all the incentive she needs.

2016 Electoral College

Donald Trump won the election on November 8th, but it isn’t final until the 538 members of the Electoral College vote later this month.

The official voting happens on December 19th and the day can’t come fast enough for some members as death threats continue to pour in.

Michael Banerian is a member of the Electoral College and is bound by law to vote for Donald Trump as the winner of his home state Michigan. Even if he wanted to, he couldn’t vote for anyone else.

The facts don’t get in the way of the people that are making Electoral College death threats.

Banerian went on CNN to describe the many attacks he has been receiving from angry Trump haters.

Banerian says he isn’t the only one that is being threatened and harassed during an interview on Fox News.

The outrage and the fallout continue from historically shocking win by Trump. Ironically the outrage is coming from the same side that attacked Trump for saying he may not accept the results of the election.

Do you think the police should take the Electoral College death threats seriously? Let us know your thoughts below.

James O’Keefe released an undercover video that exposes the dark underbelly of the Democratic Party, but this is what the media thought about the groundbreaking journalism.

Blackout!

When the video was released at noon on Monday that concluded a yearlong undercover investigation into the Clinton campaign, it made a huge impact on social media, but was nowhere on the news.

CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post and even Fox News decided to not run the story. Why? Brit Hume said it was because the media had to verify the video.

The irony is, Fox News ran with different stories against Trump without verifying, including the many sexual abuse claims and even the “Access Hollywood” recording.

Why is the media not sharing the work of Project Veritas Action?

James O’Keefe and his team released a video that literally exposes the dirty tricks of the DNC and how it is all connected to the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Project Veritas is releasing Part Two of the undercover investigation before the debate on Wednesday and it is promised to be just as shocking as the first.

In the first video we learned how Hillary and her henchmen organized and paid protestors to go to Trump rallies and incite violence. It’s called “birddogging”.

The next video takes a deeper look into voter fraud and it is promised to be a step by step guide of the Democrats plan to steal the election.

Project Veritas Action and James O’Keefe are doing the real work of journalists that the media is not doing right now. The least they can do is report on James’ work.

Why do you think the media is not covering this groundbreaking report? Let us know in the comments below.

While most of the media leans far left, Fox News leans right, so it is a shock when one of the major anchors says Megyn Kelly is is “with her”.

Sean Hannity responded to a segment on Megyn Kelly’s show that has the Internet a buzz today.

The Fox News super star, Megyn Kelly said that the presidential candidates are dodging tough interviews.

“They’re both in their own version of a presidential protection program. She is not in a place where she feels uncomfortable or anything unexpected could come at her, which is why she sat for a half an hour with Mary J. Blige, the singer, which is why she did Entertainment Tonight this evening.

And Donald Trump, with all due respect to my friend at 10 o’clock, will go on Hannity, and pretty much only Hannity, and will not venture out to the unsafe spaces these days, which doesn’t exactly extend the tent.”

Those comments didn’t sit too well with Sean Hannity.

Maybe Hannity was upset that Megyn Kelly compared his interview style to Mary J. Blige, or it could be the fact that Donald has done tough interviews. In fact, he even sat down with Megyn Kelly earlier on the campaign trail.

Sean Hannity defended Trump on Twitter by saying, “Megyn Kelly, you should be mad at Hillary Clinton. Clearly you support her. And Donald Trump did talk to you.”

Hannity also pointed out that Trump is hitting the interview circuit ant the campaign trail hard, but where is Hillary?

It is understandable why Megyn Kelly would not be a fan of Donald Trump, especially after their pubic fallout following the first GOP debate in the primaries.

Does Megyn Kelly support Hillary, who knows, but what we do know is, the offices and hallways at Fox News is probably as tense at it has ever been.

Do you think Megyn Kelly or Sean Hannity is right about Trump? Let us know in the comments below.

When Gretchen Carlson claimed that Roger Ailes, the CEO of Fox News, sexually harassed the former Miss America, nobody saw this coming.

Roger Ailes was the most powerful CEO in cable news until Gretchen Carlson claimed sexual harassment.

Since the claim, Carlson and Fox have settled out of court to the tune of $20 million dollars. That is a big payday.

Andrea Tantaros was fired and has filed her own suite against Fox and Ailes for sexual harassment.

Roger Ailes has been kicked out and over 50 staff members said they would leave if Ailes was let go. Many of them had a clause in their contracts that stated they could leave if Roger left the network for any reason.

Now we learn that Greta Van Susteren is leaving Fox after 14 years. Brit Hume, the longtime political reporter will take over “On the Record”.

The breakup came at the end of contract debates and the rumor is that nobody could come to an agreement.

Greta is opting to take the “key-man clause” to get out of her contract and leave Fox.

The co-presidents of Fox News, Jack Abernathy and Bill Shine released a statement about Greta’s departure.

“We are grateful for Greta’s many contributions over the years and wish her continued success.”

They quickly shifted to speaking about the person who will fill Greta’s spot.

“As one of the best political analysts in the industry, Brit is the ideal choice to host a nightly political program while the most dynamic and captivating election in recent history unfolds. Having Brit at the helm of this show will enable Fox News to continue on track to have its highest-rated year ever as the network dominates the cable news landscape.”

The move could be filler until they find something new to replace the “On the Record” show after the elections.

Brit Hume released his own statement regarding the change.

“My Fox News colleagues have set a high standard for political coverage which I’ll do my best to uphold. I’m honored to be asked.”

The changeups and fallout from the Ailes departure isn’t over, but it doesn’t seem to be affecting the ratings much as Fox continues to dominate all other cable news channels.

Do you think that Greta leaving will hurt the ratings? Let us know in the comments below.

Fox News

The number one channel in cable news is having a rough summer, not as bad as Bernie Sanders, but a rough summer nonetheless.

Just recently Fox decided not to renew the contract for mid-day anchor Gretchen Carlson, and she ended up filing a law suite against the CEO, Roger Ailes.

The public feud intensified when Megyn Kelly also claimed she had some unwanted contact by Ailes about 10 years ago. It was also coincidental that Megyn brought it up now, in a contract year.

It got ugly when Bill O’Reilly and about 50 other top personalities and journalists said they would leave if Ailes was fired.

Technically, Ailes wasn’t fired. Roger stepped down, got paid $40 million and is still and advisor to Rupert Murdoch, the owner and now acting CEO.

Now the ratings are out for the for the DNC and Fox News is dead last and CNN is out in front.

It is understandable that the numbers for Fox News which heavily favors the right to CNN which heavily favors the left. CNN doesn’t favor as much as MSNBC, but it still has a pro-Hillary or pro-democrat spin.

We can compare Fox to previous election cycles though.

Looking at total viewers aged 25+, Fox News was down over 15% from their own numbers in 2008. The numbers are slightly up from 2012 ratings through the first two days of the convention.

What is very interesting is that there are roughly three million more people watching this year than 2012 overall. The total numbers are down though from Obama’s first election in 2008.

CNN is the big winner here. They have doubled the total viewers of Fox and attracted about 2.1 million more viewers than 2012.

People are tuning in to the DNC, partly to see what would happen with the Bernie walkout on Monday, but also because this is a very important and contested election.

The dip in Fox is troubling, but if Hillary wins this election, it won’t matter who is the leader of Fox, it will do very well.

Do you think this is the beginning of the end for Fox’s dominance or just a dip during the Democratic National Convention? Let us know in the comments below.

Fox News

UPDATE: Roger Ailes has stepped down as CEO and Rupert Murdoch, owner of 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, will step in as the Chairman and CEO. Read more here.

The original story as published is below:

Fox News is in big trouble over sexual abuse and it could cost them some of the their biggest stars, their CEO, and huge dips in ratings.

Roger Ailes has built Fox News and has turned it into the powerhouse that it is today. Fox dominates in all demographics across all cable news, but things could be changing.

It all started when former Miss America and Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a lawsuit claiming sexual harassment from Ailes. She decided to move forward with the lawsuit when her contract was not renewed.

For a while, it looked like Gretchen was going to be hung out to dry and Ailes would make it through the scandal.

Following Gretchen’s claims, other Fox News women defended Ailes. Sandra Smith, an anchor on Fox said she has “never been instructed on the length of my skirt or the color of my lipstick”.

Harris Faulkner and Martha MacCallum, two rising starts at Fox also defended Ailes and Fox News.

Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox News, announced that he was conducting an internal investigation into the matter, and it looked like Ailes might be in the clear.

Then Megyn Kelly spoke up.

Megyn said that she had unwanted contact with Ailes and he did harass her as well. The blonde bombshell dropped a bombshell on Ailes and his future at Fox News.

Megyn is easily the next in line to rule the network behind Bill O’Reilly. Bill has been number one for over a decade and Megyn shot to fame this past year with her feud with Donald Trump.

This is where it gets interesting. The top dog, Bill O’Reilly has in his contract that he can leave the network if Roger Ailes leaves. That means that he could get out of his contract and do whatever he wanted.

If that happened, then Megyn Kelly would be the top dog at the network all by herself. Ironically, Megyn’s contract is up and under negotiation.

Whether intentional or not, by her speaking about the sexual harassment of Ailes, it could catapult her to the top of Fox News and the number one anchor in cable news.

The rumor is that Rupert Murdoch likes Ailes, but his two sons want to bring in someone new. Decision time is coming.

Fox News is expected to make a decision after the Republican Convention on whether to keep Ailes or let him go.

If they do let Ailes go, Breitbart is reporting that at least 50 anchors and contributors will leave the network with him to start something new. The list of 50 includes almost everyone, but Megyn Kelly.

Imagine turning on Fox on Monday and not seeing Bill, Sean Hannity, Greta, Shep Smith, Bret Baier, Eric Bolling, Fox and Friends and Geraldo Rivera.

Fox is in a real mess, but what do you think they should do? Let us know in the comments below.

Assault Rifle

Fox News afternoon host of the Real Story, Gretchen Carlson, shocked most Fox News fans when she said she supports the ban on assault rifles.

The shooting in Orlando has sparked a new and vicious debate on gun control and the need for assault rifles.

The right-leaning news network often defends the right to sell and own assault weapons, but the former Miss America, Gretchen Carlson, says no.

What do you think? Should we reinstitute the ban on assault rifles?

Trump

The New York Times decided to publish a hit piece on Donald Trump, but at least one of the women interviewed for the article was completely misquoted.

It is no surprise that Donald Trump has taken a lashing in the media, but it is the constant misquoting that is changing the narrative on Trump. Fortunately, he fights back hard.

Normally it is Trump that is misquoted, but now the media is even misquoting people who know Donald to make sure the spin stays negative.

Here is an interview on Fox News with Rowanne Brewer Lane as she exposed the New York Times‘ bias against Donald Trump and how she was unfairly portrayed.

The way that Donald Trump has been treated in the national media is a disgrace and it makes it so hard for Americans to make an informed decision when they vote.

Do you think that the media has treated Donald Trump unfairly? Let us know in the comments.

Trump's Son

Eric Trump went on Fox News to speak about his father’s election and he stole the show. The well-spoken and poised executive vice president of development and acquisitions of the Trump Empire defended his father and turned some heads in the process.

The third oldest of Donald’s five children apparently didn’t speak like most of the Trump haters would expect. Instead he made very good points and spoke with passion and confidence.

See for yourself. Watch the impressive interview of Eric Trump.

It is still up in the air whether Donald Trump can make a good leader, but one thing is for sure, he does do a good job of raising his children. Eric and his siblings strive for excellence and are very well educated, hard working.

This may be the first time you have seen Eric Trump, but it won’t be the last. Eric has already made a name for himself with his work in philanthropy and as part of the Trump Organization, but this is different.

Eric is on a national stage now and he is performing very well. (Except for that whole not registering to vote thing.)

If Donald Trump wins the GOP nomination outright, you can expect to see Eric a lot more during the general election, and that will be a good thing for the Donald Trump For President brand.
