    Just in time to reprise her role as White Santa in the War on Christmas.

    NBC is probably thrilled that she, conveniently, gave them an actually reason of political correctness to get rid of her, instead of just having to keep tooling around with her and her role there.

    I guess she didn't want it anymore, but Kelly left her best role when she left Fox News. Not that it matters. God, I'm sure everyone wishes they could get fired to the tune of $69 million. It's proof positive of why no one should be paid so much money. No one is worth it.

    Sometimes I get the feeling NBC didn't know what the heck to do with her after she signed on.

    Should have structured her contract like she was an NFL running back. Here's a chunk of guaranteed money with an overall number that sounds fat, but you'll never see it all because you'll be cut well before the end.

    She had no likeability or credibility from the start.

    Was she - for years - insincere in her actions and words as Fox's preeminent attack Barbie and now free to show the real Megyn?

    Did she believe in her mission and message at Fox but chose to sell out to make that sweet MSM coin?

    Either way, a phony who alienated a portion of the potential audience at the outset and lacked the sincerity to connect with those who remained.

    Megyn Kelly’s Crash at NBC in One Word (Hers): ‘Wow’

    Excellent reporting here. Interesting how Kelly felt she took her lumps, getting an ovation from her studio audience in the process. Meanwhile, Andy Lack was ready to terminate. Depending the on the sourcing, I wonder if that means Kelly feels she's being fired not because of what she said, but because they want rid of her contract.
