According to various reports, Megyn Kelly has not only “parted ways” with NBC after losing her coveted 9 a.m. hour on NBC’s Today Show, she lost her representation at the powerful CAA talent agency. Worse, when she tried to move to UTA, her “blackface” comments closed that door.Because she is now toxic, on Wednesday, Kelly could only hire an attorney to represent her, a move that points to her fighting for every penny left on her three-year, $69 million contract — an agreement that was not set to expire with NBC until 2020. After 12 years as a superstar at Fox News and a disastrous, calamitous, dumpster fire two (give or take) years at NBC, Kelly is about to go kicking and screaming as she exits stage left, but exit stage left she will because she has no place left to go… Which I think was always NBC’s plan… Luring Megyn Kelly to NBC was never about anything other than destroying Megyn Kelly. What NBC News did to Kelly has happened … [Read more...] about Nolte: NBC Closes the Trap on Megyn Kelly

close Video Kurtz: Nonstop news cycle fuels anger between Trump and Press 'MediaBuzz' host Howard Kurtz weighs in on the tumultuous relationship between President Trump and the news media. This article is based on dozens of interviews and fresh research since the beginning of 2018, a chapter-length postscript to my book Media Madness: Donald Trump, The Press and The War Over the Truth.

Joe Scarborough said GOP primary voters had “devolved into a Trumpist cult.” MSNBC’s Chris Matthews even made an allusion to the mass suicides at Jonestown. And then the president wandered into a crisis that prompted even many … [Read more...] about Behind the Hostility: How Trump and the media descended to mutual disgust

Mr Kelly escaped from Northern Ireland’s high-security Maze Prison in 1983 while serving a jail sentence for the 1973 bombing of the Old Bailey.

White House chief of staff John Kelly told NPR that he is astounded by the Democrats’ refusal to accept President Donald Trump’s immigration compromise offer of citizenship for 1.8 million DACA illegals. “It is astounding to me with all of my interactions [about immigration] with the Hispanic Caucus, the Democratic Caucus, all of that, that when this stuff was served up on a silver platter they did nothing,” Kelly said, according to the May 11 interview.“It’s astounding to me, and it should be to the world” that Trump”s “earthquake” immigration concession on DACA was rejected, he said. Kelly also showed that he is still hoping Democrats will accept a compromise deal over DACA population and the pending departure of 300,000 former ‘TPS’ refugees back to their homes in Honduras, Haiti, El Salvador and other countries: I think we should fold all of the [Temporary Protect Status] people that have been here for a … [Read more...] about Kelly: ‘Astounding’ That Democrats Reject Trump Immigration Compromise
