[6/24/17/ JON RAPPOPORT] NBC lured FOX ice queen Megyn Kelly into their house because…
NBC execs are either dumb as rocks, or it’s part of a plan to send FOX down the drain.
The dumb-as-rocks part: NBC gave Kelly her own Sunday night “news” show; that time slot, up against CBS’ 60 Minutes, is a sure loser. NBC plans to roll out Kelly in their morning line-up, where cheery and happy and bubbly are prerequisites; Kelly works more along the line of a surgeon operating on a patient without anesthetic. NBC apparently plans to put Kelly in an afternoon slot, where Oprah and Ellen made their bones; Kelly connects with the afternoon-women audience the way a leopard connects with bunny rabbits.
If NBC-programming big shots aren’t that dumb, then they stole Kelly from FOX to facilitate the downfall of FOX, the only mainstream refuge of “conservatives.” NBC will eat her salary for a while, and then, as one pundit speculated, they’ll dump her at MSNBC, the extreme left-liberal cable cemetery, dedicated these days to haunting Trump for every move he makes or doesn’t make. Kelly will probably wind up alongside Brian Williams, who’s serving time at MSNBC for famously lying about an RPG hit his helicopter took in Iraq. The Brian and Megyn Show. She’ll turn further left, and he’ll try to rehab her image. Brian will say, “She’s both brilliant and caring. She hates injustice and tries to root it out wherever she finds it. She’s committed to righting wrongs done to people who have no voice. Megyn gives them that voice. I’m honored to be working with her. When she was in Iraq and her helicopter was shot at, I dressed a chest wound she suffered…”
Kelly was the new shining star at FOX, the latest blonde in a string of blondes. She was going to propel FOX to new heights. It was all going to work out…until it didn’t.
Now she’s on the road to doofus land. Her brand of good looks doesn’t fly at NBC. It’s a negative. The audience sees her as the FOX fox who’s trying to fake her way into liberal credentials.
But if her switch to NBC helps sink FOX further, it’s worth it. Particularly if Sean Hannity takes a ratings hit. He’s the last “conservative holdout” who’s still drawing a large audience. And he’s pro-Trump.
The MSM game goes on. Who sucks in the biggest audience? Who satisfies the advertisers? Whose warm body can be climbed over by the newest contender? Who can seem to be “with the people?” Who can lower his/her IQ sufficiently to appeal to a vital consumer demographic? Who can charm women on welfare and armchair tough guys and social justice warriors with discretionary income and people who’ll actually ask their doctors whether the latest toxic drug is right for them?
Welcome to the mainstream network minstrel show, the zoo and the amusement park and the house of mirrors and the carnival alley and the three-card street-corner hustler with a folding table and the court eunuchs operating on behalf of oligarchs and the suits consulting Amazon algorithms and the CIA assets chopping up news and the Globalists in sheep’s clothing and the Wall St. front men and the pharmaceutical agents and the policy wonks and the too-big-to-fail bankers and the mothball counter-terrorism analysts and the mid-thigh skirts with crossed legs and the discreet cleavage and the jacked-up amphetamine studio audiences and the PR agency freaks and the whose-baby-is-it barkers and the and the far-flung field reporters all over the world who take their copy straight off the wires in Washington and New York and the we-don’t know-whether-it-was-terrorism-yet police chiefs and the you-can’t say-the-US-government-created-and-funded-ISIS editors and the latest-breakthrough-cancer-treatment-is-right-around-the-corner medical reporters and the Monsanto agents and the puff adder egos and the fair and balanced affirmative action hires and the out and out Communists and the collectivist utopians and the military industrialist neocon empire builders and the think tank sophists and logic choppers and the vaccine police and the latest and great blonde:
On the road to nowhere.
Unless you can somehow find it in your heart to love her.
Please love her.
She doesn’t know what world she’s operating in. She’s over her head. She’s a victim.
Destroy her, yes. But then bring her back. Reach out your hand and pull her up from the abyss.
It’ll be a good story. Promise.
