Megyn Kelly left Fox (ahem) “News” in April for a reported $15 to $20 million contract at NBC. Seriously, NBC? For a partisan hack?
Anyway, Kelly scored an interview with Vladimir Putin for the debut of her new NBC show “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly”. By some accounts, she blew the opportunity by soft-balling the interview.
You might think she’d follow up with another big score, being a brand new show; but you would be wrong. She followed up with Alex Jones, one of the right wing’s biggest lunatics, and THAT’S SAYING SOMETHING.
According to the Associated Press, Kelly thinks “…it’s her job to “shine a light” on newsmakers”. Gee, what “newsmaker” could she “shine a light on” next, maybe Charles Manson?
On a positive note, the switch in stations has caused her to dress like an actual professional; but NBC doesn’t do T&A, so she’ll actually have to be good to keep this job.
For his part, the AP reports Jones wasn’t happy with the interview, or Kelly:

I’m sure she’s boo-hooing over that! Just a suggestion here Alex but, maybe YOU should buy a mirror.
Megyn Kelly might prove people wrong; but considering she agreed to lower the neckline and hike the skirt up for 13 years for a job, I’m not sure she considers herself a real journalist either.
