Megyn on the Move

I did not think she would be able to remain on cable after NBC News cut Brian Williams.
Quote:
Megyn Kelly, who arrived at Fox News 12 years ago as a television news neophyte but rose to become one of its two biggest stars, has decided to leave the network to take on a broad new role at NBC News for an undisclosed salary, NBC announced Tuesday afternoon.

Adios, dahling. Too bad few people will see you in the future as NBC News' ratings remain in the dumps. I've read you've left behind few friends at Fox News. But I assume you've been offered the big $.

I didn't see her on Fox News, because I only have basic cable.
So now, I will see her more.

If she had "few friends", it's to be expected. People get jealous, especially if its a woman that gets the fame. That's how life rolls. It is not her job to have lots of "friends". How come that is rarely mentioned when its a man?

For the same reason a blunt, decisive woman is labeled a b*tch while a man with similar disposition is a "good leader"

I think it is sad where the news business has devolved to. It used to be that you had strong anchors reporting on what has happened. Now it seems like most 'news' consists of a panel of pompous actors talking over each other and badgering guests rather than try to conduct an interview. I used to be amazed by comments about people receiving their news from the Daily Show, Facebook, or talk radio. I guess there is no place for Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather, Connie Chung, Peter Jennings, etc style of news anymore.

Megyn Kelly moving to a different channel seems like just another tabloid article.

What exactly does she and other talk show hosts do that is worth the big bucks?

The world was not "that is the way it is" even if old Walt said so. In the old days when I stil watched TV I used to call him walt crankcase. There were very good reasons Dan and Connie went off the air...

Oh well, never mind....

I guess because "they" get credit for ratings. Fair or unfair criteria?

News today seems to be as much or more mindless entertainment.

Yep. Ratings driven so I guess it must be working as they all do it. Not as bad on PBS tho.

I'm pretty sure it's b*tch and a-hole, not good leader. It requires a lot more to be a good leader.

Megyn on the move -- who cares.

Now a Talking Heads reunion -- that would be news.

Looking back, Brian Williams was just ahead of his time as he boasted about events as if facts didn't matter. Perfect for today's type of news coverage .

I hope Megyn won't be the main substitute when Lester isn't around. But does looks NBC was playing musical chairs around the holidays. I had growing respect for Megyn but she kinda caved to an "event" for the ratings.

Megan Kelly is very smart and talented. Comcast/NBC will do well with this addition.

Strong anchors never did just report. They slanted to their views. Always been true. Cronkite & Rather were very slanted imo. Much better with a diversity of slants available.

I agree that panels & talk shows aren't news, just opinions. Only such things as the stock market moves & the number murdered in Chicago today are hard news.
