New York’s Gabriel Sherman is reporting that in addition to being a ratings and financial failure, Megyn Kelly’s interview with Donald Trump has resulted in her losing most of the leverage she had in her upcoming contract negotiations.
Fox executives were willing to consider 9 million viewers a success, but Kelly’s supposedly mainstream appeal didn’t translate to the parent network, and she only netted 4.8 million viewers.
It was, as one Fox insider told Sherman, “not good for her at all.”
In fact, her boss Roger Ailes was apparently so tickled by the fact that he would not have to pay her a reported $25 million to remain at Fox News that he was heard “snickering” in a Thursday meeting when the special was mentioned.Boy, has Megyn Kelly miscalculated. She thought she could go full-court Feminist/Social Justice Warrior on Donald Trump. BUT, instead of winning, she has suffered a career meltdown.
She's just one step above Michelle FIelds.
Except that, at least, Fileds has Ben Shapiro to lick her ass after she takes a dump.
Megyn doesn't even have that.
