Megyn Kelly

by -

One of the new go-to terms for the radical left is “whitewashing”. Apparently that happens when a black journalist is replaced with a white woman.

That is exactly what happened at NBC when they announced that black journalist Tamron Hall was having her show canceled to make room for Megyn Kelly.

The National Association of Black Journalists do what liberal groups do all the time, complain about racism. They accused the network of “whitewashing”.

“NBC has been a leader for diversity in broadcasting, but recent reports that Hall and Roker will be replaced by former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly are being seen by industry professionals as whitewashing.”

There is one thing that this group is over-looking. Megyn Kelly is a huge star and NBC is paying her millions to join their team. Megyn just left Fox after starting out small and ending with the second highest rated show on the network and on cable news.

Hall was the first black female to be a co-host on “Today” when she started in 2014, but this decision doesn’t seem to be about race. It is about ratings.

Megyn Kelly wanted to leave Fox so she could work in the AM to spend time with her children in the evenings. Her show at Fox started at 9pm and that didn’t give her a lot of time with the kids.

Part of her deal was a different time-slot. Adding Kelly to the morning lineup will certainly help the ratings for NBC, and we will see when she starts in the fall.

NBC defended their move in a statement responding to the NABJ.

“NBC News has a long and proven history as an industry leader in newsroom diversity. We will continue to engage in the running dialogue we’ve had for many years with the National Association of Black Journalists and other advocacy groups to advance those goals.”

What do you think? Is NBC guilty of “whitewashing” or are the race baiters just crying foul? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

During the first Fox News Presidential Debate, host Megyn Kelly zeroed in on Donald Trump and his treatment of women.

The Fox News host told the billionaire, “You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs’, ‘dogs’, ‘slobs’ and ‘disgusting animals’.”

Trump quickly responded with the laughter-generating line, “Only Rosie O’Donnell.”

Today, O’Donnell, the former TV talk show host, actress and gay-rights activist, took to Twitter in a disjointed attempt to “stop” Trump before he takes office.

First she attacked the validity of the election.

She didn’t stop there. She then shared an “article” that claims Trump is broke.

Some would say what she is sharing is considered “fake news”, but not according to liberals.

Rosie continued on her rant and of course demands to see his taxes.

Why are most of Donald’s celebrity haters the ones that are irrelevant in today’s pop culture?

Rosie is clearly having a hard time with a Trump presidency, but there is nothing that she can do to stop him.

Do you think Rosie is right or does she need to get a life? Let us know in the comments below.

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.

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.

Trump

New polls coming out this week show the race tightening and they are suggesting that Donald Trump can actually win the presidency.

Last year at this time, Donald was in a war with Megyn Kelly and nobody thought that he would make it to the next debate.

The next debate came and went and so did 15 other GOP candidates that wanted to be the nominee of the party. Trump beat them all and proved all the pundits and talking heads wrong.

Along the way Donald, according to the liberal media, has called to ban a religion, insulted gold star parents and even told 2nd amendment supporters to kill Hillary.

Despite all of the bad press, the foot-in-mouth disease and running his first campaign, he is now only down two points in a new Zogby poll. Only down two points after all of that is amazing.

So amazing, that it should start getting the complacent people on the left to start thinking they could lose this thing.

The poll shows Clinton with 38%, Trump with 36%, Gary Johnson with 8% and Jill Stein with 5%. The poll also had 13% that were undecided.

The two-point lead is well within the margin of error and in a four person race, as this is shaping up to be, Trump does much better in the polls.

The polls that just ask Clinton or Trump are not a true representation of what is going on in politics this year. People are fed up with Hillary and the DNC and they are moving towards Gary Johnson and Jill Stein.

Some Republicans that are ashamed and angry their party nominated Donald are switching to Gary or not voting.

People are just learning about Gary and Jill and if they can make the debates, the numbers could shift wildly, and it could all help Trump.

Trump is the most conservative candidate in the field. Gary is slightly left of Trump with the main difference is Donald is the only pro-life candidate. That is a big decider for a lot of voters.

Democrats that were part of the Bernie Revolution and supported Hillary are now learning about the Green Party and they are starting to gravitate towards Jill Stein.

None of the polls take into account the debates, more email releases, or tax return releases. There is still a lot in play right now and after the first debate, we will have a much better picture of what will happen in November.

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.

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.

Megyn Kelly

Megyn Kelly is the hottest thing on Fox News right now. Not because of her good looks but because of her tenacity and fearless brushes with Donald Trump.

She has come a long way in a short amount of time. She got her first show, America Live, in the early afternoons on Fox starting in 2010 but it only took three years before she had her own prime time show right behind cable behemoth Bill O’Reilly.

Megyn even had a higher ranked show than O’Reilly in August of 2015 when Trump was attacking her. Number one in the country that month.

Now she is looking to what is next. Her contract is up with Fox this summer and an unlikely person decided to write an op-ed for the Washington Post on Monday to offer some advice.

Joe Scarborough, the “republican” with his “Morning Joe” news show on the very left leaning MSNBC. Joe used the example of Glenn Beck to talk to Megyn.

“Beck began gracing the cover of magazines such as Time and Forbes. And soon enough, the man who saw himself as a latter-day version of Walt Disney was raking in tens of millions of dollars a year, was outpacing competitors on multiple media platforms, and, most important for Beck, was controlling a central place in America’s political and cultural zeitgeist.”

Joe went on to say that Glenn Beck was wrong for thinking he had out grown the largest news channel on cable. Joe also said that Glenn “has been largely irrelevant to the 2016 campaign.” He is right.

Glenn Beck may have had some pull in Utah, a state that Cruz won easily, but Beck’s support for Cruz has gone largely unnoticed and has gotten weird at some points. Like when he said that God anointed Ted Cruz.

Glenn Beck posted a response on Medium that largely praised Megyn and wished her success but also offered some advice and took a few shots at Joe in the process.

“Judging by your actions during this campaign cycle Megyn, anyone would be able to see that your principles take precedence over your own interests. This characteristic is more rare in media than the average person can imagine.

There are far worse places you can be. You could do a morning show you don’t own, on a network that no one watches, where your opinion is controlled and dismissed. Imagine how that must feel. Sad.”

Ouch! MSNBC does have remarkably low ratings and consistently falls well below CNN, which falls way below Fox.

So Megyn is faced with a decision. Stay at Fox, become the next Glenn Beck or simply do whatever she wants. Her future is wide open and the fact that two rival media guys are using her story to gain headlines is a reflection of the power and influence that Megyn Kelly has right now.

Do you like Megyn Kelly? What do you think she should do next?

Cokie Roberts

MSNBC’s Cokie Roberts had an opportunity to interview presidential frontrunner Donald Trump recently, but rather than ask about issues, Roberts blamed Trump for school bullying.

Cokie asked the real estate mogul, “there’ve been incidents of white children pointing to their darker-skinned classmates, and saying, ‘you’ll be deported when Donald Trump is president’ . . . are you proud of that?”

The ridiculous question falls in line with the aggressive line of questions that started with Megyn Kelly during the first GOP debate.

Robert’s interview with Trump is going viral on Facebook today with pointed reaction toward the anchor.

John Daliani wrote, “What kind of a stupid, asinine question is that? Put that old coot Cokie Roberts out to pasture.”

Another person, Terry Finco posted, “Cokie Roberts was born with a silver spoon [and is] seeing her cocktail parties go down the tubes.”

Roberts, a long time establishment reporter, once implied that a Catholic nun from New Mexico, Sister Dianna Ortiz, was lying about her abduction, rape and torture by a government-backed group in Guatemala.

More recently, Roberts has been criticized for her biased support fro the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) which Donald Trump strongly opposes.

Trump

As the lights warmed up and the cameras came into focus for the seventh GOP presidential debate, there was an air of excitement in the air as no one knew how this would play out.

The excitement quickly turned to spin for Fox News at the close of the debate.

Fox News and the GOP debates had lost their electricity due to their attack on front runner Donald Trump.

Even worse, Trump stole the show and, despite not even being present at the debate, still commanded the biggest buzz throughout the night according to Google Trends.

In a thrown together event three miles from the debate convention center, Trump and his team put on a high energy, hour long rally where Trump announced he had single-handedly raised over $6 million for wounded veterans.

To add insult to injury to the establishment’s news outlet, Fox News, “minor” candidates Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee, two previous winners of the Iowa Caucus, made an appearance at Trump’s rally.

The billionaire candidate predicted that Fox would see a drop in ratings without his presence and he was right.

What Roger Ailes tried to drum up in Don King fashion as a showdown between Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump turned into a poor performance by Ted Cruz and essentially a snooze fest featuring the seven candidates who are dwarfed by Trump.

The following morning, Fox News avoided talk of Trump and focused on the “excitement” of the previous night’s debate in their attempts to spin the evening.

But it didn’t hold water as even Fox’s own guest admitted that the debate was just a rehash of “old questions and old answers” by the candidates.

While the anti-Trump pundits will continue to say that Trump was hurt by his no-show, it’s just more spinning to limit damage of the network’s credibility.

And we’ll find out the truth on Monday as voting begins in the Iowa Caucus.
