Ever since Megyn Kelly got her mancut haircut (emulating iconic female TV personality Diane Sawyer) she has been on a mission to move to the alphabets (ABC, NBC, CBS).
Sadly, Rupert Murdoch’s leftwing sons, Tweedledee and Tweedledum (who took over Roger Aisles after stupidly forced out) have made complete asses of themselves furiously trying to keep her. They have offered her over 20 million dollars a year. Why? She has alienated the FOX news audience by attacking Trump and shamelessly trying to curry favor with leftwing news executives at the big three. The scallywags, scoundrels and misanthropes given a platform on her show are reprehensible.
The auction for her services never materialized and Kelly has been kicked it up several notches making her show unwatchable. The good news? Hannity has skyrocketed and is beating her in the ratings.
I hope her ego gets the better of her and she goes. She will do down with that ship. We saw what happened when FOX gave her a special on the FOX Network. She bombed.
CNN WANTS MEGYN
Thu Dec 01 2016, DrudgeCNN President Jeff Zucker is actively perusing FOX star Megyn Kelly to anchor 8 or 9 PM on his network, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. And Kelly might just say, YES!
“He is moving the Himalayan mountains to get her,” a top insider explains. “But they are tripped up on money. He simply can’t pay her the $20 million a year FOX has on the table.”
Kelly’s contract is up in July 2017.
For Kelly, a move to Columbus Circle would represent a fresh break from a turbulent 18 months at FOXNEWS. And the chance to go directly against arch-nemesis Bill O’Reilly will be hard to resist.
Meanwhile, the highs and lows of the Trump and Roger Ailes dramas have taken a toll.
The anchor is “despised” by fellow on-air talent. And FOX insiders describe how it’s gotten only worse since the release of her book, which is expected to end the holidays under 500,000 total copies sold. [Megyn refused to promote her book on both O’Reilly and Hannity, foreshadowing a move.]
Zucker at CNN would compensate her salary with heavy promotion and synergy across all TIME WARNER outlets.
A top source close to the action describes how Megyn would be an immediate international star at CNN. “It’s the opportunity of lifetime.”
“She could even star in a movie at WARNER BROS.”
