Former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is trying to get her career back on track.
Since NBC fired her last fall, everyone wondered where Megyn Kelly would land.
And now Megyn Kelly found out shocking news about her comeback and Fox that no one could believe.
Megyn Kelly’s time at Fox News was the subject of the anti-Fox movie “Bombshell.”
Oscar winning A-list actress Charlize Theron played Kelly and Nicole Kidman starred as Gretchen Carlson, the two women most associated with the allegations of sexual assault that brought down late Fox News President Roger Ailes.
Left-wing director Jay Roach – who previously made the anti-Sarah Palin “Game Change” and pro Al Gore “Recount” for HBO – helmed the project so Fox News was sure to come out looking bad.
But despite being given a prime real estate pre-Christmas release date, “Bombshell” bombed at the box office bringing just over $5 million dollars on its opening weekend.
Megyn Kelly reacted to the film’s release and tried to distance herself from the project and let her 2.4 million Twitter followers and 40,000 fans on Instagram know that she did not sell her story to make “Bombshell” the official account of her time at Fox News.
But while the movie “Bombshell” is loosely based on my experience during the sexual harassment scandal at Fox News, I have nothing to do with this film. I did not sell the rights to my story or book and only got my first look at the film once it was past the point of any possible edits, though there are certainly some I would have made.
Watching this picture was an incredibly emotional experience for me, and for those with whom I saw it. Sexual harassment is pervasive in this country; it can leave scars that do not heal. My heart goes out to those who’ve gone through it, who I hope might find some comfort in this story.
As for my thoughts about the film, I’ll have more soon.
Kelly wanted to make sure everyone knew she did not participate in this film for good reason.
There is no audience for Hollywood liberals and their anti-Fox News vanity projects.
A-List actor Russell Crowe starred as Roger Ailes in a Showtime limited series called “The Loudest Voice in the Room” which tanked, drawing some of the lowest ratings in network history.
“The Loudest Voice in the Room” and “Bombshell’s” pathetic ability to draw an audience reveals a minimal appetite on the part of liberals for those types of projects.
And of course conservatives have no time for Hollywood lecturing them about how Fox News is America’s ‘great Satan.’
Kelly is trying to make a comeback as the star of her own news platform.
After NBC fired her, Kelly knows liberals have little patience for her since she will always be a former Fox News anchor.
And Kelly wants to make sure not to alienate her former conservative audience by allowing them to think Kelly was associated with a hit piece on the news network Trump supporters trust the most.
