Megyn Kelly’s career is in limbo.
NBC fired her after the controversy over racially charged comments she had made on her show.
But now she just got some life-changing news about a possible return to Fox.
Fox News Shoots Down Megyn Kelly Return
Media reporters speculated that Kelly may have been angling for a return to Fox News all along.
She defended Brett Kavanaugh on NBC programs about the false allegations of sexual misconduct.
And the segment that got her fired from NBC was for attacking liberals and their Stalinist politically correct guidelines for Halloween costumes.
Kelly struggled to fit in at NBC.
She came from Fox News, so the liberal audience instantly distrusted her.
And some thought with Lachlan Murdoch now running Fox News, she’d have a natural landing spot when her deal with NBC ran its course.
That’s because Murdoch fought to keep her in the fold before she jumped to NBC.
He reportedly offered her a $20 million a year contract to be the centerpiece of Fox’s post-Bill O’Reilly primetime lineup.
She turned him down and went to NBC.
At a recent event, Murdoch was asked about Kelly and her future now that NBC dumped her.
“I am a big fan of Megyn’s,” Murdoch stated. “I like her a lot. We didn’t want her to leave Fox when she did.”
However, that does not mean Murdoch plans to hire her back to Fox News.
“Having said that, I’m very happy with our current lineup on Fox, and we won’t be making any changes there,” Murdoch concluded.
Megyn Kelly’s Uncertain Future
NBC firing Kelly damaged her brand permanently.
Before she left Fox, there was talk that fake news CNN wanted to hire her.
There is no chance of that now.
Kelly’s termination by NBC has marked her as a racist in the minds of liberal viewers.
No network that depends on a left-leaning audience could bring her on and not face massive blowback.
But she also alienated conservatives.
When Kelly attacked Donald Trump in 2016, it turned off her Republican viewers.
And now she’s burned her bridges with Lachlan Murdoch – her former patron.
Some conservatives were worried that Lachlan Murdoch – who is known to have more liberal political views – would try to change Fox News into something like CNN.
That turned out not to be the case.
If anything, Fox News rejected the fake news template of CNN.
CNN pretends to be an objective news outlet.
But their airtime is filled with racists, conspiracy theorists, and liberal cranks.
Don Lemon, Brian Stelter, and Chris Cuomo all pretend to be journalists when in reality they are Democrat Party activists.
Unlike Fox News, they make no distinction between their news and opinion programming.
CNN’s dishonesty is why their ratings are suffering.
Nickelodeon draws more viewers than CNN.
Fox News – because they are honest about their programming – retains the trust of the audience and is the highest rated cable news channel.
Lachlan Murdoch sees no need to fix what’s not broken by bringing back Megyn Kelly.
