Megyn Kelly

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.

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.

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.

Fox News

Fox News, which prefers to be known as the only conservative news outlet, showed its true colors as just another wing of the establishment in their treatment of leading presidential contender, Donald Trump.

Last night, Trump announced that he would skip the debate hosted on Fox News this Thursday after the news outlet mocked him saying he “feared” news commentator Megyn Kelly.

Fox News was goading the candidate like Don King would hype a boxing match before two rivals.

Trump didn’t fall for it and preferred to pass on the debate and not award the political commentary station with millions of dollars in ad revenue.

After Trump’s announcement, Fox went apoplectic, even releasing a statement that Donald Trumps campaign manager was making terroristic threats to Megyn Kelly.

Here’s their statement:

“As many of our viewers know, FOX News is hosting a sanctioned debate in Des Moines, Iowa on Thursday night, three days before the first votes of the 2016 election are cast in the Iowa Caucus. Donald Trump is refusing to debate seven of his fellow presidential candidates on stage that night, which is near unprecedented. We’re not sure how Iowans are going to feel about him walking away from them at the last minute, but it should be clear to the American public by now that this is rooted in one thing – Megyn Kelly, whom he has viciously attacked since August and has now spent four days demanding be removed from the debate stage. Capitulating to politicians’ ultimatums about a debate moderator violates all journalistic standards, as do threats, including the one leveled by Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski toward Megyn Kelly. In a call on Saturday with a Fox News executive, Lewandowski stated that Megyn had a ‘rough couple of days after that last debate’ and he ‘would hate to have her go through that again.’ Lewandowski was warned not to level any more threats, but he continued to do so. We can’t give in to terrorizations toward any of our employees. Trump is still welcome at Thursday night’s debate and will be treated fairly, just as he has been during his 132 appearances on FOX News & FOX Business, but he can’t dictate the moderators or the questions.”

The ridiculous statement is a clear indicator that Fox News is not used to living in the real world were bad acts result in consequences.

But Fox News didn’t stop there. Establishment commentator Brit Hume, whose second wife is a vice president at Fox News had this professional tweet posted on his Twitter feed:

Hume, who according to his wiki page, has never held a job outside of journalism, appears to carry a false sense of hubris, believing that Fox News can do no wrong. Looping back to Kelly, the host looks to be gun shy in taking on Trump directly but doesn’t hesitate to retweet comments of others that bash Trump and promote the Number 2 contender, Ted Cruz:

Fox News’ apoplectic and grossly unprofessional reaction to Trump’s decision signals that the organization has lost it’s power and standing with the American public . . . along with ratings that convert to cash.

Fox News

Fox News, preferring ratings to relevant debate, has decided to throw newsgirl Megyn Kelly into the mix as one of three moderators.

The debate, set for Thursday night, is turning into buzz about Kelly going head-to-head with the billionaire candidate rather than a substantive debate on the issues.

In the first debate hosted by Fox News, Megyn Kelly came out with guns blazing for Donald Trump, attempting to brand him as a misogynist.

Trump fought back during and after the debate in his typical attack fashion with Kelly taking a break from her show.

Since the debate attack, Kelly has been on the rise and dedicates her shows to guests who regularly attack Trump and promote Ted Cruz, such as talk show personality, Glenn “Waterwoks” Beck.

On Monday, Trump signaled to CNN that he may skip the debate out of protest of a “biased” Kelly being permitted to moderate, saying, “I’ll see. If I think I’m going to be treated unfairly, I’d do something else. I don’t think she can treat me fairly, I think she’s very biased. But that doesn’t mean I don’t do the debate. I like doing debates.”

Fox News broke from journalistic standards with their response to Trump’s possible no-show with a spokeswoman saying, “Sooner or later Donald Trump, even if he’s president, is going to have to learn that he doesn’t get to pick the journalists — we’re very surprised he’s willing to show that much fear about being questioned by Megyn Kelly.”

Telling Donald Trump that “he’s willing to show that much fear” about Kelly is akin to Biff Tannen calling Marty McFly “chicken.”

Yep, them’s fighting words.

Shortly after Fox News came out with the throwdown, Trump published a poll on Twitter to his 5.83 million followers:

The Twitter poll was attached to an Instagram video of Trump asking if Megyn Kelly can “really be fair at a debate.”

The clear answer is no, Kelly and Fox News are biased, but Trump has the opportunity to tear down the Fox News façade of being “Fair and Balanced” in front of millions of Americans.

Should he show?
