Megyn Kelly Makes DESPERATION MOVE against Fox News and Bill O’Reilly
Anybody note that Hollywood still has yet to name additional names.
In almost any article you read on Weinstein, people allude to “others”. And yet, nobody has named any new names.
Hollywood wants us to believe that Weinstein was the only sexual predator and monster in its midst? Fat chance.
But now we see the shift. In most of the stories of the horrid and very real acts by Weinstein, the Left casually mention Donald Trump. And in more recent articles the name of Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes came up as well.
There is ZERO information on Trump, other than potential consensual activities between a billionaire playboy and all too willing young women. And in the case of Ailes and O’Reilly, my bet is if you added up all the women who claim to have been harassed by these two, it would be a small fraction of those Weinstein abused.
But here is Megyn Kelly attempting to make an old story seem new. Too bad Kelly didn’t get the opportunity to interview Weinstein so she could have a real story.

This obvious ratings ruse by Kelly reeks of hypocrisy.
Particularly when you look at the letters Kelly sent to the man she now claims harassed her.
What a class act you are, coming to my baby shower. I was truly touched – I know how busy you are, especially that time of day. It meant a lot to me + Doug. And thank you for the darling bodysuits + snuggly – it’s hard to believe will soon have a little human being in our lives tiny enough to fit in the,
You’ve become a dear friend (no matter what you say) + I am grateful to have you in my life.
-Megyn & Doug
Thanks for the plug on Doug’s book. I realize you didn’t have to do that, especially after mentioning it already.
I appreciate how supportive you have been of me over the years here @ FNC.
You are a true friend + mentor.
Ironically, I wrote of Megyn Kelly potentially needing Harvey Weinstein to save her.
Maybe Megyn Kelly can book Harvey Weinstein, post-rehab?
Because outside of a lot of “has beens”, it appears Hollyweird wants no part of Megyn Kelly.
According to Variety , publicists have essentially blacklisted Kelly’s show.
“I’m not booking anyone on her show,” says a high-powered publicist, with a roster of big names, who asked for anonymity due to her overall relationship with “Today.” “I literally haven’t pitched anyone even from right out the gate. The buzz that is out there is so bad.”
Another well-known publicist, who represents one of the celebrities who has appeared on Kelly’s show, wasn’t pleased with the interview. “I won’t plan to have others go on,” the publicist said. “None specifically have been offered or asked to, but it’ll be my preference not to.”
Part of the problem is self-inflicted, as Kelly’s interviews have been somewhat embarrassing. For example, her reference to Jane Fonda’s plastic surgery.
Though Fonda pretends to be outspoken about the “work” she’s had done, even a novice journalist knows not to ask questions about such things. Because first, that Fonda is proud of her “work” is a lie. But second, plastic surgery should be treated like pregnancy, “Don’t ask, don’t tell!”
And then there are the ratings.
Page Six explains Kelly’s ratings drag down the entire Today franchise. In her time slot, Kelly’s show lost 32 percent compared to last year. But what’s worse is that Kelly’s show was to be the on-ramp for the show that follows. However, Kathy Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb dropped 26 percent:
“Too many people are tuning out NBC. Hoda and Kathie Lee had been a bright spot in the mornings. People are alarmed,” the source said of the slide. Another source told us that “Today” talent is concerned.
“The format for Megyn’s show doesn’t make sense. Her show distracts from the ‘Today’ franchise,” the second source said.
Megyn Kelly struggles to make the transition from politics to pop culture. She doesn’t understand Hollywood, which is not necessarily a bad thing as the Harvey Weinstein saga suggests. However, her new role differs greatly from her role at Fox News.
Is Kelly tough enough to buck the system, and pull and “Ellen” of sorts? Time will tell. But she likely won’t have a lot of time to figure things out. Van Susteren lasted six months. Kelly’s clock may instead by a time bomb.
It appears that Kelly believes the ploy of turning on Fox News and her “friend and mentor” Bill O’Reilly will save her. Or at the very least extend her tenure at NBC. Who knows?
But the gutless act showcases the fleeting nature of friendships and loyalty, if you ask me. I believe the public recognizes this, and it will backfire on Kelly.
