Daily Commentary – Thursday, May 19, 2016 – So The Ratings Are in on the Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump Interview
- 5.1 Million people watched Megyn Kelly interview Donald Trump yet still came in 3rd place behind “The Voice” and the NCIS season finale
DOESN’T IT MAKE YOU WONDER WHETHER THE FEUD WAS ALL MADE UP FOR RATINGS?
The faux feud is over, we can all sleep well now. Megyn Kelly has landed a big, no huge, huge interview with Donald Trump after the two have decided to end their feud. You will remember that Trump skipped the FOX News debate over his spat with Megyn Kelly. But, when it comes to the cable channels, its all about the bass, I mean the base and the ratings. And why not, FOX News has pretty much become nothing more than a super PAC for Trump these days. As Hot Air opines, “It’ll be tricky for Kelly to find the right tone.” We shall see how this one goes, then again, this has not been about reporting the news, issues and candidates this election cycle, its been all about the bass, I mean the ratings.
Megyn Kelly has landed a big interview with Donald Trump after the warring pair agreed to end their feud.
Trump will sit for an in-depth interview on Kelly’s special, which airs on Fox on May 17, a source confirmed to Page Six.
The move comes after the pair met for a summit at Trump Tower to make their peace.
The Fox News anchor secretly spent an hour with the Republican presidential candidate on April 13 at the Trump Tower, where they discussed him appearing with her on a TV special.
“Kelly requested a meeting with Mr. Trump, which took place at Trump Tower this morning . . . Kelly has acknowledged in recent interviews that Trump is a fascinating person to cover and has electrified the Republican base,” a Fox rep said in a statement at the time.
Later on the “The Kelly File,” the host said, “Mr. Trump and I discussed the possibility of an interview, and I hope we will have news to announce on that soon.”
In a miraculous transformation of both Trump and Kelly, the two have decided to put their faux differences beside for their futures. But I thought he had no respect for her as a journalist and their was blood coming out of her eyes?
The feud erupted last year after Kelly grilled Trump during the first GOP presidential debate about his tasteless comments regarding women.
“You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs’ and ‘disgusting animals,’” Kelly said. “Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?”
The tough questioning caught Trump off guard. “Honestly, Megyn, if you don’t like it, I’m sorry . . . I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably not be, based on the way you have treated me,” he shot back.
