    Default Megyn Kelly leaving FOX NEWS

    I fucking predicted this!

    With all her turmoil with Trump, her inner beef with Hannity, I was just waiting for her to turn and leave Fox News. After being the 2nd highest watched news show (behind O'Reilly), she is now taking her talents to NBC.

    I thought she would go over to CNN to really piss me off, but whatever. She's doing it because the money they're offering is a healthy 8 figure number (which is mind boggling) and an earlier broadcast which gives her the time to spend with her young children. This Friday will be her last show on Fox News, even though her contract wasn't set to expire for another 6 months.

    Is this a big deal? I think it is, because I watch Fox News most nights before bed. So this will change the lineup. What's everyone else think of this? Who do you think will take her place in that delicious 9pm slot?

    Ummm... Everyone predicted this and she trashed the company in her book and straight out said she was not likely to stay there.

    She is definitely worth whatever NBC is paying her. She is one of the hottest things in news since 24/7 news started.

    NBC looks to have signed a strong deal with her too offering her a daytime spot, the usual spot reporting for events and a Sunday special slot for in depth coverage to do real news. She is carving her out legacy.

    What is interesting is that NBC could not match the price of Fox so she is taking a paycut. My guess is she have creative control however for her own program and maybe the daytime show.

    Other than Shep she was the only person I liked on Fox, so that kinda sucks for me.

    Creative control in the media business is worth more than a slightly higher paycheck. Especially when the contract runs out

    I read that she left because it worked better for seeing her kids. I'm sure there's a lot to it. She was slowly "turning" on the "brand" of Fox News. Her dislike of Trump as they were pushing for him was kind of my moment when I realized she was leaving there soon. Then she went at it with Hannity and I knew for sure that there was something going on behind the scenes.

    I used to like her, but stopped liking her when she went emo and cut her hair after being insulted by Trump. A lot of people have went to day time and have failed. I don't think she's going to be the one to succeed.

    Kudos to NBC for getting a name brand in television news. In the grand scheme of actual journalism and reporting, it doesn't mean much of anything, except probably some angry Fox News viewers who would label her a traitor or something.

    I've enjoyed Tucker whenever there's a college student on. Those are usually good clips!

    I think I just said something about this not being like sports.

    You like Tucker Carlson, because he's not liberal.

    For real, it is sick. It has long been known though if you focus people on the petty, they start to ignore the big picture. This is how planed parenthood is defunded, it is why racism is spiking and why no real reform ever can come against wallstreet. People get too focused on the micro-level crap and cannot organize against the larger structures. So yes all women are objectified but they will not have access to womens healthcare. All black lives matter but cops will still shoot them dead in the street. The 99 percent are struggling to survive, but their money will still fuel the profits of the 1 percent.

    Well exaggerations like 'the 99% are struggling to survive' don't help the cause...

    Many Americans are struggling to survive, but most of that 99% is fine and even the bottom is doing better than most of the world.

    So, that's that.

    Tucker Carlson, the veteran cable television host and conservative writer, will succeed Megyn Kelly in the coveted 9 p.m. slot on Fox News, according to two people with knowledge of the network’s plans.

    Surprised she was allowed to mention moving to NBC on her show. I remember when WWE went from Spike to USA they bleeped it out when it was brought up. But I dunno how these things work honestly.

    I wouldn't be shocked if Tomi has her own show on Fox within the next 1-2 years. Love her or hate her, she would be a huge ratings draw.

    Why wouldn't Fox let her announce it? For them it was Kelly admitting she is a closet liberal and thus not worthy of Fox news network anymore.

    The great mass-exodus of FOX News continues. I've heard just now that Greta Van Sustren's leaving for MSNBC.

    I see people link to those clips (or many like them) on the Facebooks and I've never actually clicked on them. I dunno, if I were a 40-something man and a core part of my identity were out-debating frickin' 18-year old kids I would seriously reevaluate my life. Congratulations, you have more world knowledge than someone who just moved out of their parents' place like six months ago? It's like beating a ten year old at a pickup game of basketball.
