Kelly is trying to resurrect her career after being unceremoniously fired by NBC.
But Megyn Kelly’s big comeback just ran into one surprising red flag.
Megyn Kelly’s career was left for dead after NBC fired her midway through a three-year contract.
While NBC paid Kelly the remainder of her jaw-dropping $69 million dollar contract to sit at home, her career prospects at the other cable news channels looked bleak.
Lachlan Murdoch – who once hoped to make Kelly the centerpiece of Fox New Channel’s primetime lineup – declared Fox had no interest in bringing Kelly back.
And fake news CNN would never touch Kelly because Kelly isn’t a down the line liberal.
However, Kelly’s return to the spotlight came in the form of A-list, Academy Award-winning actress Charlize Theron playing Kelly in the major Hollywood movie “Bombshell.”
“Bombshell” was Hollywood’s second attempt to take down Fox News by dramatically portraying Kelly and fellow anchor Gretchen Carlson’s sexual harassment allegations that forced Fox to fire legendary network President Roger Ailes.
The subject nature and the liberal political ideology of the filmmakers’ guaranteed conservatives would never see this movie.
So the studio behind the movie was counting on big-ticket sales among liberals and other Fox News haters.
Liberals also had no interest in the movie and “Bombshell” bombed out at the box office with just six million dollars in ticket sales for its opening weekend.
Far-left racist Atlantic columnist Jemele Hill helped explain why liberals stayed away from the theaters during “Bombshell’s” release.
Hill sympathized with the subject matter – women bringing down a powerful, conservative white male that symbolized the patriarchy – but Hill deemed Fox News “destructive” and could not bring herself to support a movie that featured Fox News even if it was in a negative light.
“I wouldn’t see this movie if the fate of humanity depended on it,” Hill hysterically raged on social media. “Pains me to say that because I love the three lead actresses. Fox News is a destructive, despicable force. Did they ever consider that the reputation of the network and Roger Ailes was too toxic?”
This reaction leaves Kelly in no man’s land for her return to the media.
Kelly’s attempting to launch an independent news channel that features content on her YouTube and Instagram platforms.
But it remains to be seen who her audience is.
Based on Hill’s reaction – and the performance of “Bombshell” at the box – it certainly isn’t liberals.
That could explain why toward the tail end of Kelly’s NBC run, she began to tack back to the right.
Kelly voiced skepticism of the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh and after NBC exiled her, Kelly threw cold water on the Democrats’ impeachment witch hunt.
Kelly’s attempted comeback is one of the big stories in media.
However, without a cable news platform, it remains to be seen if Kelly can make it as a standalone internet news personality.
