Reacting to news that the 2019 Academy Awards ceremony would be undergoing major changes in order to address poor ratings for this year’s show, on Thursday, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly offered some ideas of her own, namely that the Hollywood event drop left-wing politics from its program.
During a softball interview with losing 2016 Democratic Senate candidate Jason Kander on Monday, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly declared the Missouri politician to be the “future of Democratic Party” and pressed him on whether he was going to run for president in 2020. She also took time to gush over his anti-gun activism.
During a Tuesday panel discussion on NBC’s Megyn Kelly Today about left-wing comedian Sacha Baron Cohen tricking and humiliating Republicans for his new Showtime series, NBC reporter Jacob Soboroff praised the deceptive entertainer as a “genius” who was “exposing the fault lines of our society” and “providing a service.”
During an interview with NBC anchor Megyn Kelly, actor Dennis Quaid described feeling nervous about his recently announced role playing Ronald Reagan for an upcoming biopic about the nation’s 40th president. Quaid told Kelly that Reagan was his “favorite president” and that he felt a “huge responsibility” to get him right in the film.
Ahead of Sunday’s new episode of the CNN series The 2000's (which is airing maybe a few years too soon), let’s take a look back at a few pathetic moments from the first episode, which focused on the decade’s movies and television. The CNN documentary blasted Fox News and MSNBC for having corroded the news discourse and heaped a torrent of praise on far-left comedians and former Comedy Central hosts Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart.
On Thursday, all three network morning shows promoted the conspiracy theory that the arrest of porn star Stormy Daniels at an Ohio strip club for misdemeanor sex offences was a “politically motivated” “sting operation” designed to embarrass the adult film actress, who accused President Trump of having an affair with her in 2006. The NBC, ABC, and CBS broadcasts all touted such claims from Daniels’ media hound attorney Michael Avenatti.
On her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show on Tuesday, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly took Democrats to task for opposing President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, declaring that they “lost this fight on November 8th, 2016" and were just being “bitter.” She added that “Trump deserves his choice.”
Appearing on NBC’s Megyn Kelly Today Friday morning, correspondent Stephanie Gosk ran to the defense of Massachusetts Democratic Senator and possible 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, chastising President Trump for once again mocking the liberal lawmaker for lying about having Native American heritage.
On her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show on Monday, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly blasted liberal actor Seth Rogen for refusing to take a picture with House Speaker Paul Ryan and even shaming the Wisconsin Congressman in front of his kids. None of the other network morning shows mentioned Rogen’s incivility toward the Republican leader.
Appearing on Wednesday’s Megyn Kelly Today, NBC anchor Savannah Guhtrie assured her colleague that she was “trying to stay as fair-minded and neutral” as possible in her coverage of the Trump administration’s immigration policy. That pronouncement came in the wake of Guthrie’s Today show repeatedly touting video earlier that morning of left-wing activists screaming profanity at Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
After cable news channels CNN and MSNBC made 22 references to Nazi concentration camps and other human rights atrocities during coverage of illegal immigrant detention centers along the U.S. southern border over the past few days, on Tuesday, NBC decided to join in touting the extreme rhetoric. Specifically, the Nazi death camp comparison was repeated four times in three hours, across two of its morning shows.
During interviews on both NBC’s Megyn Kelly Today and CBS This Morning on Monday, Barack Obama’s former communications director Dan Pfeiffer was treated to numerous softball questions that allowed him to promote his new book, political podcast, and blast the Trump administration.
