Looks Like Megyn Kelly is Gone At NBC
« on: October 25, 2018, 11:59:09 AM »
As we know you can't say anything about black people, black horse, black dogs, black birds, the black death, certainly can say blackboard anymore and you can't paint your face black at Halloween that's really insulting. 

Who makes up these friggin rules of what we can't do at Halloween anyway?

So do blacks who paint their faces white come under the same rules? Hell they still do it even in Africa.

snip:

It was the latest sign that Kelly may never return to the NBC airwaves.

Her decision to skip “Megyn Kelly Today” came two days after she suggested, during an on-air round-table discussion, that it was appropriate for white people to dress in blackface as part of their Halloween costumes.

It's madding a person can't do blackface now......

I did blackface as a child for Halloween, when I was around 10.....I was Al Jolson...I would sing "Mammy" when the people opened the door...My neighbor, who was a black kid, went as "The Mummy"....Our parents called us called us, Mummy and Mammy.

Hell today they would hang me and say I was oppressing my friend....

The world has gone insane.

eh, you reap what you sew... i never for a second bought her act as a conservative commentator, but many apparently did.  she did such a good job of that she had an almost impossible job of convincing the left she was one of them.  Her little game of masquerade is up it looks like.  good riddance.

Megyn Kelly was going to be the media superstar that took out Donald Trump.  This is back before the deep state Republicans jumped on the train.  But Megyn lost in embarrassing fashion.

Despite all that, Megyn is still a grounded individual, and not intellectually dishonest enough to pass as an MSM host.  This was bound to happen.

She really shouldn't have set her gunsights on Trump.  This is where she went wrong.  Kind of a shame.

There's a lot of things you and I did as kids that's not permissable in todays society.

The lefts PC crowd has destroyed the childhood portion of life with their crazy ass rules taking all the fun out of being a kid

They've been looking to get rid of Megyn Kelly since about one month after she started.
Her star had already begun to fall at Fox News, but NBC ponied up.

NBC forked over $69 million for her three year contract.
Roger Ailes wins again....

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6316973/Megyn-Kelly-NBC-just-48-hours-blackface-scandal-paid-69-million.html

'Megyn Kelly is done. She is not ever coming back,' said an NBC executive with knowledge of the situation.

'We are just working out timing of the announcement but mark my word – she is gone and will never be seen on NBC live again.'

The source then added: 'Here’s the worst part – her deal is a non-break deal – so she walks away with all that money. It’s disgusting and heads should roll here because of it.

Multiple sources at multiple networks told DailyMail.com on Wednesday that members of Kelly's team had been in contact about finding a new home for the Today host.

Those networks were not biting though, with one executive at ABC saying: 'We wouldn't hire her in a million years. She's toxic and her personal brand is finished.'

That same executive was also critical of the decision to hire Kelly, questioning why Andy Lack and Noah Oppenheim had not already gotten rid of the $69 million woman.

'Andy and Noah need to own this mistake and fire her. There shouldn't be a place for someone with these views to remain on NBC News,' said that executive.

'Andy and Noah both should be held accountable too. They gave her the $69 million and all she has delivered is scandal after scandal. Add production costs and they are responsible for a $100 million dollar s*** show at 9am every morning.'

Compare this situation with Jemele Hill. I don't see a double-standard.

In a 2007 column about Barry Bonds, Jemele herself admitted to playing the race card, writing that it’s “somewhere in my back pocket, but I’ll play that later on.” [ed – fair warning. Dr. King really just wanted people to openly admit that they were planning to be racist and offensive to each other at some point in the future].
JUNE 20, 2008- ESPN’s Jemele Hill wrote this past Saturday that, "rooting for the Celtics is like saying Hitler was a victim.  It’s like hoping Gorbachev would get to the blinking red button before Reagan."
2008 NBA Playoffs, Jemele was suspended from her writing post after referencing Adolf Hitler in an article about the Boston Celtics (the then-NBA champions) and the Detroit Pistons.
A slow learner, Jemele was at the center of another controversy in 2009, after she told Green Bay Packers fans to give Brett Favre the “Duracell treatment,” actually suggesting that fans at Lambeau Field throw batteries at the former quarterback. Later that year, Jemele once again should have put her foot in her mouth when she was reprimanded for her comments that compared University of Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball coach John Calipari to Charles Manson.
Earlier this year, ESPN sent a memo to its employees that tells them to refrain from making political statements. But it seems as if the policy has a double standard.
Jemele Hill, a co-host on ESPN2's His & Hers, tweeted Sunday that it's wrong for Americans to condemn homophobia in Islamic cultures, given the discrimination that gay people have faced in the United States. The tweet was a response to the reaction following the Orlando shootings, where a gunman pledged allegiance to ISIS before killing 49 people and wounding 53 more inside of a popular gay nightclub early Sunday morning.
An ESPN spokesperson said Hill's tweet doesn't violate the company's edict, despite its political overtones. That's hypocritical in comparison to how the network handled Curt Schilling's anti-transgender rant on Facebook earlier this spring, which resulted in his dismissal.

She made headlines last fall when she accused President Donald Trump of being a white supremacist in a tweet. Hill faced no punishment by the network.

A few weeks later, Hill called on ESPN viewers to boycott the Dallas Cowboys after owner Jerry Jones announced he would bench any player who didn’t stand for the national anthem.

Since Ailes was fired from Fox before Kelly left, and he is now dead, I find your definition of winning pretty curious.

I'm with Drew.
Screw her and the horse that brung her.
If Fox lets her slither back, I'll never watch a second of her.

My wife used to love her. I kept telling her, there's something off about that gal. And I wasn't talking about
her store bought plastic nose and toots.
