Megyn Kelly now hosts the third hour of the Today show, and it’s a less-boozy Today With Kathie Lee and Hoda than it is a daytime version of The Kelly File.

August 11th, 2017 1:40 PM
Conservatives who’ve rallied behind former Google engineer James Damore traditionally have undermined workers like him, contended The New Republic’s Josephine Livingstone on Wednesday.
