    How do feel about Megyn Kelly leaving Fox News for NBC?

    NBC News chairman, Andrew Lack, offered her a triple role in which she will host her own daytime news and discussion program, anchor an in-depth Sunday night news show and take regular part in the network’s special political programming and other big-event coverage.

    Will she be used by NBC as an attack-dog on the Trump Administration?  Will her standing as the second most watched host behind Bill O'Reilly change?  Does this help or hurt NBC?

    I think she is now fully in the "celebrity" category, as opposed to just a news commentator.  That's always been a fine line anyway for everyone in the business.

    Being on network daytime does not gain her more credibility. I know she's talked about being the next Barbara Walters; maybe this will help. If she wants the $$ & fame, this is a good move. But if she wants to be taken seriously, I don't think so.  Strange career move.

    Will she also be on MSNBC?  I know they're trying to get away from their all Left lineup.

      Fox offered her $20 million to stay, so she must have went for the money.

      I agree with CJ &you are right Ralph,it's all about the money with her,always has been even before she came to fox.In interviews she brags how as a lawyer & married to a doctor she had made it but was still unhappy because she wanted more!

    I could honestly care less what she does.  She has about the same amount of influence over me as any of the celebrity movie stars who keep sticking their opinions into politics.

    There is no doubt she has worked hard to get to where she is today.  I actually wish her well in the future regardless of where she sells her soul.

      Mike, you have a knack for saying a lot in very few words.

    She is a lot of things, successful, pretty (if you like blondes), smart, and a phony.

    Did you see her interview with Dr. Phil? Yeah she went on his show to promote her book Settle for More, and he just fawned all over her. Why? Because, and this is probably the reason he had her on his show, she had what I believe is a phony story about how when she had it all, a successful lawyer and married to a doctor (WOW) she was still so unhappy and working 18 hours a day! Despite her depression and working 18 hours a day she claimed she would get home at midnight and guess what - she would watch reruns of Oprah...(Oprah at midnight? to relax after working 18 hours every day? I think I'd go to bed). Well according to her she turned on Oprah to see her interviewing Dr. Phil and what Dr. Phil said changed her whole life. Really? Well here is how she tells it.

    What a coincidence that she heard Dr. Phil and what he said years ago changed her life and now as she is reaching the pinnacle of her career he and Oprah get some kind of credit! Did she get the idea to "settle for more" from Dr. Phil? Really? If she had gotten the idea from anyone else so you think she'd be on the Dr. Phil show? I wonder if she called him or he called her for the interview. She is really smart and smooth, she knows how to pander to the really rich and the elite, eg. siding with them against Trump to get points in Oprah circles who normally would look at her askance for working for Fox. See she knew to really get to the top and rub noses with the multi-billionaires she would have to shed Fox, all part of her plan to "settle for more" which I believe didn't come from Dr. Phil but is her nature to the core, an obsession to have it all.

    But that's not all. I said she is a phony and this is the real tell. She claimed in her interview that Roger Ailes, her boss, years ago sexually harassed her. She only made this accusation after Gretchen went public with her harassment charges against Ailes. She said that after Gretchen went public if she were asked she wasn't going to lie.  But she repeatedly praised Ailes in public throughout her career. Dr. Phil asked her about that and she claimed the reason was that all employees were told to and obligated to do that when working for Fox. If you know anything about Dr. Phil, if another guest on his show rationalized like that he'd have been all over them asking to explain how if you will not compromise your principles and lie if asked, how do you justify compromising them because Fox tells you to praise your boss  whom you know first hand sexually harasses employees?

    But Dr. Phil feigned asking tough questions which she obviously knew he was going to ask so she was prepared and Dr. Phil let her slide on morality. After all, it was ratings for him and book sales for Megyn, yeah they all get richer while getting more popular patting each other on the back all the away to the bank.
