Accuracy in Media

NBC News’ lavish spending on Megyn Kelly is irritating some of her colleagues at the network, according to The New York Post’s Page Six.

Kelly, who is on a five-day nationwide tour visiting affiliates in major markets, is traveling in style— flying on a charter jet with a support staff of five or six people, including a hairstylist, a makeup artist, a publicist and a security detail.

One source told Page Six that “People are outraged over her divalike ways,” and wondering when NBC will stop throwing money at her.

Kelly reportedly is being paid $18 million per year for her services at NBC.

An NBC insider pushed back against the heavy spending charges, telling the Post that the affiliates tour is standard operating procedure when launching a new show—or in this case a new hour of the “Today” Show, and that most of the staffers for her morning show were already working for “Today” and the expenses for the show’s launch were budgeted far in advance.

NBC News is hoping that Kelly’s foray into the morning hour will work out better than her Sunday prime time program, which failed to attract much of an audience and repeatedly finished behind repeats of “60 Minutes” and “America’s Funniest Home Videos” in the ratings.

    Let’s start complaining about the fact that she is white , blonde and wears high heels…or some other idiotic left wing feminist comments

    It will happen soon. I heard she will be replaced with a 4ft. tall 5ft. wide one breasted lesbian.

    You must be talking about Rachel Madcow. Spare me! She’s even worse!

    Once Megyn Kelly’s morning show tanks like a lead balloon, I would love to see NBC News pull her off the air entirely and send her packing. Knowing them, however, they’ll probably give Megyn the “Brian Williams treatment” by reassigning her to their reject network (MSNBC) where she will then join the “great panel of delusional stooges”…..otherwise known as Rachel Madcow, Andrea “Hillary Lover” Mitchell, Chris “Thrill Up My Leg” Matthews, and Lyin’ Brian Williams.

    So NBC bought Megan Kelly and now they find out she does not work well with their audience and they need to do something to get their money back or go out of business. I quit watching prime time Fox News because they would not let their guests have their say and just talked over them. Hate that. Personally, I vote for a change of business model where NBC does an honest job of fact checking what goes on the air, and then presents the facts, all of the facts, from all sides of the story. Yeah, that’s right, turn it into educational story telling that is actually true with out the hype and without the spin.

    Rachel is Scarborough in drag.

    Close but no cigar, don’t forget “blaack,” Caryn Elaine Johnson (aka Whoopi Goldberg) needs a job, people are tiring of hearing the same bad jokes over and over…

    They may have high hopes because of the shear quantity of money they have thrown at her so far, but they are not going to recoup those losses. Her day time show isn’t going to fair any better.

    You mean MSLSD.

  • Unaffiliated Voter

    Exactly.

    It’s almost impossible to believe the 24/7 collective of minute by minute vicious liars on the fake news. I would think our president could sew them for insane slander all day. I wish we were organized like the communists and would do something about the enemy within before it’s too late. The books that were written about communism early in the last century said the first things communists do is replace your sculptured history with meaninglesss metal art. Look at whats happening.
