Megyn Kelly just made another disastrous career choice
NBC is reeling from the scandal surrounding Matt Lauer’s alleged sexual assault.
His longtime cohosts on The Today Show were visibly distraught while reporting the news.
But the way Megyn Kelly reacted to the downfall of her biggest rival at the network may have sealed her fate.
NBC insiders believe Megyn Kelly used the story to promote herself.
And they aren’t happy about it.
The Daily Mail quotes NBC insiders as saying:
‘We work in an industry of egos but this is the most opportunistic thing we’ve ever seen,’ said one staffer.
‘We now have the highest paid person at NBC News hosting one of the lowest rating shows, and rather than being humble, she takes the first opportunity to take the spotlight and make it all about her and what she knew.
‘Our team is hurting and the newest member of the team who is yet to prove herself is out and about making public comments that she truly has no knowledge of.’
‘No one wanted Megyn here, she was forced upon us and today reinforced why she will never be a member of the Today family.’
Savannah, Hoda and Al showed grace and class, colleagues said. They were shell shocked and tried to strike the balance of reporting on someone they had known for years and considered a friend, while also showing respect for the accuser who made a very difficult decision to file formal complaint against the most powerful person at NBC News – effectively changing the face of the Today Show forever.
A staffer said: ‘Megyn on the other hand saw this as an opportunity to mark her territory within NBC News. Yet she failed and she’s now lost the support of everyone.
‘And here’s something we’d like to say about her – she’s terrible on morning television, her show is terrible, her staff think she is terrible, in fact her show should be call Terrible with Megyn Kelly.
Kelly alienated viewers at Fox News with her unhinged attacks on Trump during the 2016 campaign.
She’s completely failed to launch at NBC, despite now being the highest paid anchor.
This episode will likely only alienate her more within the network.
