FILE THIS ONE UNDER, WHO DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING … MEGYN KELLY’S RATING HITTING THE SKIDS.
As reported at The Hill, Megyn Kelly’s Sunday news magazine this week registered its lowest ratings since its debut on June 4, 2017. The latest installment of “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” drew 3.1 million viewers on Sunday, down by one half from her debut. Look for it to go even lower. She is in a no win situation as those that used to watch her on Fox News will no longer because she jumped ship and she is too conservative for NBC. Who is left holding the bag? Why NBC of course. Kelly was hired by NBC News earlier this year for a reported salary of $17 million annually. How anyone in the news is worth this much is beyond me. In what might turn out to be the worst career move ever, Kelly turned down a reported $25 million to stay at Fox News, but instead jumped to NBC in January. In what has to be nothing but embarrassing, no matter how NBC wants to spin it, Kelly’s live Sunday program again lost to repeats of “60 Minutes” on CBS and “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
There is a greater question here … how do no talents in the media get paid so much? How are they worth it?
Megyn Kelly’s Sunday news magazine this week registered its lowest ratings since its debut on June 4, according to Nielsen Research.
“Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” drew 3.1 million viewers on Sunday, or half of the 6.2 million viewers it brought in for its premiere, which featured an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Kelly, 46, was hired by NBC News earlier this year for a reported salary of $17 million annually.
The former attorney-turned-cable-news-star was offered a reported $25 million to stay at Fox News, but jumped to NBC in January. Kelly finished 2016 as the second-highest rated host in cable news behind only the since-ousted Bill O’Reilly, also of Fox News.
Kelly’s Sunday program again lost to repeats of “60 Minutes” on CBS and “America’s Funniest Home Videos” on ABC in both total viewers and the key 18-49 demographic advertisers covet most.
“60 Minutes” tallied 5.9 million viewers to win the 7 p.m. time slot.
Let’s remember what was predicted when Megyn “I think I am better than I am” Kelly left Fox News. Although, she pretty much created a situation for herself where she could not stay.
My personal opinion is that Megyn will become a small fish in a big liberal pond and probably rue the day she made this jump. I cannot believe that her career will be cultivated as it was at FOX. This almost appears to be addition by subtraction by NBC.

More FAKE News … AP Makes Correction to Trump-Russia Stories (FOUR, Not 17 U.S. Intelligence Agencies)
EVEN WITH COMMON CORE MATH: 17 – 4= 13
On the Friday of a July 4th holiday day week with many not paying attention, the AP took the opportunity to report that they have been reporting FAKE NEWS for quite some time. Earlier in the week, the NY Times did the same retraction. It would appear that they, the AP, and numerous other media outlets and Democrat politicians have been using the fictitious number of 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump. It turns out to be a fabricated number. Because 17 sounds much more impressive than 4. In essence, the AP, and in turn Democrats were trying to make it sound like 100% of the US intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump. Actually, it was only 23.5%. Hmm, that’s much difference, isn’t it?
This news was put out by the media as weaponized information against Donald Trump. The MSM colluded with the Democrat party. Who leaked this information to the media who purposely put forth this incorrect information so that the MSM would run with it and it would become talking points for Democrats.
In stories published April 6, June 2, June 26 and June 29, The Associated Press reported that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump. That assessment was based on information collected by three agencies – the FBI, CIA and National Security Agency – and published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which represents all U.S. intelligence agencies. Not all 17 intelligence agencies were involved in reaching the assessment.
How much more fake news do we have to have forced upon us for the American people to understand that the MSM really can no longer be trusted? The media has an agenda and they are colluding with the Democrat party. Maybe that is the investigation that needs to be looked into?
FAKE NEWS: MORE CNN PUNDITS CALLING TRUMP-RUSSIA STORY BS … THE LEAST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS.
So now it’s CNN’s Van Jones calling the Trump-Russia story a “nothing burger”. But wait, its not just a nothing burger, “its a BIG nothing burger.”
PV Reporter: What do you think is going to happen this week with the whole Russia thing?
Van Jones: The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger
PV Reporter: Really?
PV Reporter: You don’t think that…
Jones: There’s nothing there you can do.
This coming off the earlier Project Veritas video where a CNN producer was caught saying the Russia-Trump story was “mostly bullshit” and CNN was doing it for ratings.
CNN was hit Wednesday with a second undercover video, this one featuring regular political contributor Van Jones calling the Russia controversy a “nothing burger.”
The video shows Mr. Jones, a former Obama White House adviser, speaking on hidden camera after being greeted by a Project Veritas investigator.
“The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger,” Mr. Jones says on the clip.
The video comes a day after Project Veritas released footage showing CNN producer John Bonifield saying that CNN has pushed what he called the “bullsh—” Russia story in order to juice ratings.
Project Veritas Video American Pravda: CNN … Why Does CNN Do Trump/Russia Stories … The Ratings of Course
DOES CNN CARE ABOUT THE TRUTH? HELL NO, ITS ABOUT THE RATINGS!!!
Bonifield even further confirms CNN’s bias against the President, stating, “I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me…you have no real proof.”
Bonifield exposes that Russia has been great for CNN’s ratings, and that orders from CEO Jeff Zucker himself have directed CNN to pursue Russia leads at the expense of other stories. Bonifield states “And the CEO of CNN said in our internal meeting, he said ‘good job everybody covering the Climate Accords, but we’re done with it let’s get back to Russia.’”
He further comments on Russia, “it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t have any giant proof…if it was something really good, it’d leak.”
