Embarrassment at NBC over Megyn Kelly not traveling to the Olympics
Fox News. com ^ | January 15, 2018 | Brian T. Hodges

Megyn Kelly will be staying home next month when her fellow NBC stars travel to South Korea for the Olympics — raising new questions about the standing of NBC News’ highest paid star.

The Olympics is a command performance for any high-profile star or executive at the Peacock Network, which has paid nearly $1 billion to broadcast the 2018 Pyeongchang Games in the United States. While it’s unclear if Kelly made the decision to stay home herself, it’s unusual nonetheless.

NBC traditionally sends its entire panoply of news stars to the games, and true to form, both the “Today” show and “Nightly News” will broadcast live from Pyeongchang for the duration of the games, focusing their news programs almost entirely on games coverage. NBC executives, as well as head honchos from parent company Comcast, also travel to the games to hobnob, attend receptions and watch sporting events.

Fox News has confirmed, however, that Kelly, who makes about $23 million a year, will not join her fellow stars in South Korea. Instead, her troubled 9 a.m. hour of “Today” will broadcast Olympics coverage from its usual studio in New York’s Rockefeller Center, according to TVNewser.

How sad. The train just left the station while Kelly was fixing her makeup.

The first Olympics in a long time without Lauer sexually assaulting the newsreaderettes and female producers & interns. Maybe “Migraine” Kelly felt it wasn’t worth it without the NBC Rapist there.

From my post at FOX News, “Sorry Megyn, your 15 minutes have expired. Enjoy your new found and richly deserved anonymity. “

So very many smart women (and men) out there.
So many very stupid ones (of both sexes, obviously).

At least the latter have good possibilities with the MSM.
And Hollywood.
And the Democrat Party.

And here I thought it was only sports teams that wasted that kind of money of alleged “star” players.

Yeah, that's why she's getting a 2.6 percent tax cut, not a deduction, a TAX CUT! Why do people who make $23 million a year need a tax cut? This smells like Bull Crap.

Good question.......For what they provide, which is the good face in front of a camera and the ability to read a teleprompter, the max they should make is maybe $35,000 per year........

They make more in one year than a hundred years I could have made when I was working.........
