Megyn Kelly: NBC’s $17.5 Million Mistake

MEGYN KELLY. THE HAIRSTYLE ISN’T FLATTERING.

The largest single group watching daytime TV is black women. That’s no surprise, since a lot of black women are sitting at home on their asses collecting benefits.

According to this report, blacks view Megyn as racist. I guess that’s because a couple of years ago she correctly informed blacks who were demanding black Santa Clauses that Santa is white.

LOL.

Megyn had that one right, but blacks appear to be holding a grudge against her, which is going to cost her viewer eyeballs when she starts her gig on morning TV in the fall.

Excerpt from Variety

It’s still months before Megyn Kelly’s new NBC daytime show is set to premiere, but it already feels like the former Fox News anchor has overstayed her welcome. Only three weeks into her Sunday-night newsmagazine show — a “Dateline” style piece, structured around her interviews with high-profile “gets” — Kelly’s star is dimmer than ever. It’s a far cry from where she was just a year ago.

2016 was a banner year for Kelly: After a wave of flattering media coverage positioned her as one of the few remaining sensible voices within the Republican party, she led round-the-clock election coverage for Fox News — anchoring one of its highest-rated programs, “The Kelly File,” and shoring up the network’s credibility on women’s issues as it reported on, and sometimes sparred with, then-candidate Donald Trump. If Bill O’Reilly was the face of the network, Kelly — a photogenic former lawyer — was the face of the future. It was Kelly’s complaints that finally ended Roger Ailes’ reign of sexual harassment at the network; an indication of changing times, a changing company, and Kelly’s worth to the network.

Then in January, Kelly left Fox News, and since then whatever high-wattage star power she had has waned considerably. This month she’s been hosting “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly,” an opportunity for theoretically harder-hitting coverage than what she’ll do in the fall when she takes over the network’s 9 a.m. timeslot.

By all measures, her “Sunday Night” effort been a disaster: Her interviews have been either ridiculed or loathed by the rest of the press, and the ratings reflect a distinct lack of interest. To be sure, newsmagazines around one anchor have a high failure rate, even for respected names like Bryant Gumbel, Connie Chung, and Jane Pauley. But Kelly’s problems go beyond ratings. Her June 18 episode, an interview with InfoWars’ Alex Jones, began as a problematic decision and snowballed into a PR nightmare. Kelly couldn’t handle either the interview or its fallout.

Even before all of this, there were plenty of reasons to be skeptical of Kelly’s upcoming foray in the 9 a.m. timeslot. Daytime television is a notoriously difficult nut to crack — dozens of shows, built around former news anchors and other personalities, have failed to succeed, even when they are helmed by otherwise well-liked personalities. Kelly has never emphasized intimacy or likability in her on-camera persona. Her style is legalistic and cool, with a brass-tacks elegance that can, at best, appear regal.

Compare this to Kelly’s fiercest competitor in the 9 a.m. timeslot: Kelly Ripa, a brash, bubbly personality who manages to be both inclusive and distinctive at the same time. Daytime TV is such an intimate and alchemical landscape that audiences’ most beloved anchors take on a kind of mythical quality — Oprah, Ellen, Katie — who are gossiped about and scrutinized as if they were members of a far-flung family. Ripa, a master of the form, was already, in all likelihood, going to eat Kelly for lunch (or is it breakfast?). Now that Kelly’s reputation on the rocks — and that Ripa has a new telegenic cohost in Ryan Seacrest — it’s hard to imagine Kelly making a dent in Ripa’s audience.

On top of all of this there’s the fact that Kelly has a history of cringeworthy statements about black people — and is about to debut in a timeslot that happens to draw a large African-American female audience. According to Nielsen data for the 2015-16 season, African-American women comprised 23.1% of the total TV audience in the (nearly synchronous) 7 a.m.- 3 p.m. time frame, making them the largest component of the daytime viewership base, ahead of white (16.3%), Hispanic (12.6%) and Asian (7.6%) women.

Given all of this, NBC’s logic in hiring Kelly — for an annual salary, according to industry sources, of $17.5 million — was already murky. Now, “Sunday Night” has called into question Kelly’s capacity to do her job appropriately. The entire rigmarole with Alex Jones was a series of unforced errors: Amateur decision-making, lightweight investigation, and vaguely defined motives. She has floundered in interviews on-camera and made to look either dishonest or unprofessional off-camera. And her essential sense of newsworthiness is oddly awry; after all of the hullabaloo defending her interview of Jones, she couldn’t manage to get the segment to coalesce around a news peg. So what is Megyn Kelly good at?

To answer the question, she is good at being obnoxious and aggressive. She’s probably trying too hard to be like Bill O’Reilly.

Americans love to see overly self-confident blowhards fail. If things work out, Kelly is going to come in for a lot of criticism.

But remember this. It’s all theater, designed to distract us from what’s really important. So, have a little fun with Kelly’s fall, but stay fixed on immigration, race, and the economy.

U.S. Aircraft Shoots Down Syrian Jet

BOEING SUPER HORNET TAKING OFF.

The intrigue hanging over the shooting down of a Syrian jet by American forces is heavy.

Let’s see if we can formulate some theories to cut through the fog of fake news that is going to spew forth from the Deep State.

First, a concise statement of what the American command says happened.

Fox News

A U.S. Navy fighter jet shot down a Syrian government warplane after it attacked Washington-backed fighters near ISIS’ de facto capital of Raqqa, the U.S.-led coalition said Sunday.

In a statement, the coalition headquarters in Iraq said that a F/A-18E Super Hornet shot down a Syrian Su-22 that had dropped bombs near positions held by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The statement said coalition aircraft had “conducted a show of force” to turn back an attack by Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad’s forces on the SDF in the town of Ja’Din, south of Tabqah.

The coalition said the shootdown took place “in accordance with rules of engagement and in collective self-defense of Coalition partnered forces.”

The statement said “a number of SDF fighters” were wounded in the regime’s attack, but did not specify further. The coalition also said that Russian officers had been contacted on a special “de-confliction” hotline in an effort to halt the assault.

“The Coalition’s mission is to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria,” its statement said. “The Coalition does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian, or pro-regime forces partnered with them, but will not hesitate to defend Coalition or partner forces from any threat.”

The statement went on to call for all parties in Syria’s complex and bloody six-year-long civil war to “focus their efforts on the defeat of ISIS, which is our common enemy and the greatest threat to regional and worldwide peace and security.”

A U.S. defense official told Fox News that the Super Hornet that shot down the Syrian jet was based on board the USS George H.W. Bush, which is currently operating in the Mediterranean Sea. The official did not say which weapon was used to shoot down the Syrian plane.

The story told by the American military-industrial complex is implausible.

Syria would be happy to let ISIS and Syrian rebels battle it out and kill each other.

The U.S., Israel, and Saudi Arabia created ISIS (aka Daesh). There’s only token evidence that these countries are serious about defeating ISIS.

De facto, the U.S. just committed an act of war against Syria. This country wants Assad gone and Syria carved up and defenseless. In short, this country wants what Israel wants.

The Syrians have responded: (via Google translate)

one of the fighter aircraft in the Rusafa area of ​​the southern countryside tenderness during the implementation of a combat mission against the terrorist organization Daesh in the region led to the crash and the loss of the pilot.

This blatant aggression confirms beyond doubt the truth in support of terrorism, the American position, which aims to try to influence the Syrian Arab Army’s ability only force players with allies exercising their legitimate right to fight terrorism throughout the home area especially since this attack comes at a time that achieves the Syrian Arab army and its allies clear progress in the fight against the terrorist organization Daesh who defeated in the Syrian desert on more than one direction.

Also it confirms that exists between the United States and the organization of coordination Daesh terrorist, and exposes the malicious intentions of the United States of America in the management of terrorism and investing in it to achieve its objectives in passing the project US Zionist in the region.

The General Command of the Army and the armed forces as it warns of the serious repercussions of this blatant assault on the fight against terrorism, efforts to confirm that such attacks will not be deterred from its determination and its determination to continue the war against organizational Daesh and Front victory terrorists and groups associated with them and restore security and stability to all the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.

Basically the Syrians say that the U.S. shot down their plane to benefit Israel. I believe them. What do you think?

Jew Reporter’s Interest in Tentacle Porn Draws Attention Away from Comey Testimony

Kurt Eichwald is the reporter who went to the FBI and had an alt-right Trump supporter (a troll who called himself “Jew Goldstein”) arrested for Tweeting him a flashing image, which he claimed harmed him due to his epilepsy. This site posted that story in March.

As a consequence of his biased writing and generally obnoxious being, the alt-right never misses a chance to discredit him.

Sputnik News

Kurt Eichenwald has been called many things. Journalist. Author. Investigator. Vocal critic of President Trump, the alt-right, and Russia. Now, he has earned a new label: closeted anime porn enthusiast.

It all started on Tuesday night, when the Vanity Fair and Newsweek contributor was negatively name-dropped by his nemesis, Fox News host Tucker Carlson. On Wednesday, Eichenwald replied with a series of negative tweets: “Apparently, @TuckerCarlson brought me up on his show last night. I wouldnt know. Like most ppl now, I dont watch it.”

Eichenwald then posted a flyer that he claimed to have been mailed, featuring a Jewish caricature laughing sinisterly as the world literally burns, with the caption “DANGER: EVIL JEWS IN CHARGE”.

“Since being on your show,” he tweeted to Carlson, “I get things like this a lot, most always from ppl mentioning u. Ur the Julius Streicher of Fox.” (Streicher was the publisher of the vehemently anti-semitic newspaper Der Sturmer, which was popular in Nazi Germany. At the postwar Nuremberg trials, Streicher was convicted of being an accessory to the mass extermination of Jews during the Holocaust and was sentenced to death.)

Carlson didn’t reply to being compared to a Nazi. But more importantly, Eichenwald’s browser was clearly visible in the tweet. His tabs included Twitter, an anti-Carlson article published on Salon, and… “B-chiku”, a 212-page work of anime porn (or “hentai”).

People began to mock what was quickly dubbed “hentaigate,” kink-shaming poor Mr. Eichenwald for his enjoyment of anime girls getting railed. Perhaps the story would have petered out after that… until Eichenwald made the questionable decision to publicly defend himself.

That’s right. Kurt Eichenwald, one of the US’ more prominent left-wing journalists, decided to discuss his porn habits on Twitter instead of discussing the news. It’s a slow news day, in his defense. The only thing going on is former FBI Director James Comey’s explosive Senate testimony, heavily covered by virtually every outlet. Oh, and the United Kingdom’s general election, but that hardly counts as news.

But don’t worry, Kurt has an explanation! He “couldn’t find any” tentacle porn, so he ended up in a decade-old hentai that has absolutely nothing to do with that particular kink. Seems plausible?

For purely research purposes, crack Sputnik investigators Googled “tentacle porn.” The first and third link to come up are the tentacle porn tags on the Pornhub and XVideos sites, comprising thousands and thousands of videos. The second link is the Wikipedia article for “tentacle erotica.” The fifth link is the Urbandictionary entry for the same.

This isn’t the first time Eichenwald and pornography have meshed poorly. In 2005, he published an article in the New York Times about a child pornography ring he claimed to have accidentally discovered on a Google search. (Sound familiar?) Instead of alerting the police, Eichenwald contacted the website and offered them thousands of dollars to allegedly better expose the ring.

This was a major breach of journalistic etiquette, not to mention that he literally funded child pornography. When pressed, Eichenwald admitted that he had made a mistake, but claimed to have forgotten that he even made the payments due to memory loss brought on by his epilepsy.

At least this time, all he did was make a fool of himself in public, rather than outright disgracing the profession.

Hey Kurt, here’s one for you, you sneaky old wanker, you.

Flashback: Paul Ryan Rules Out Cuts to Muslim Immigration–“That’s not who we are.”

REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN PAUL RYAN. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS HIS HIGHEST VALUE.

Paul “Open Borders” Ryan went on the record with Sean Hannity, as reported in this excerpt from a November 19, 2015 story.

Breitbart

House Speaker Paul Ryan is ruling out making any cuts to Muslim immigration.

In an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Ryan declared that considering an applicant’s religion would not be “appropriate” and would be fundamentally un-American— insisting “that’s not who we are.”

In his questioning of Ryan, Hannity cited populist thought leader Jeff Sessions, who chairs the Senate Immigration Subcommittee and whose office has put out a series of analyses in recent months detailing the enormous scope of immigration into the United States in general, as well as the vast scope Muslim immigration in particular.

Since 9/11, the U.S. has accepted more than 2 million immigrants, refugees and asylees from predominantly Muslim nations. Sessions has repeatedly called on Congress to reduce the number of green cards issued, including in an op-ed last week one day prior to the Paris attack.

“Eighty-three percent of voters want to see projected immigration growth reduced — which means Congress must take up and pass a bill to reduce the number of visas handed out each year,” Sessions wrote. “Congress should immediately begin to move popular immigration reforms that would be backed by overwhelming majorities of voters, including… blocking the president from using federal funds to unilaterally expand the costly refugee resettlement program.”

In his question, Hannity asked Ryan point blank about some of Sessions’ recent analysis. Hannity said:

We have resettled 1.5 million Muslim migrants in the United States. Senator Sessions had put out a piece where all these people that we took in to the country then come here and then get involved in terror activity. I put it up on my website, I urge you to take a look at it. And we take in 100,000 Muslim immigrants into the United States every year. Do we have to think about somebody who grows up under Sharia— believes that women can’t drive, can’t be seen in public without a male relative, four eyewitnesses for rape— do we have a clash of cultures we’ve got to consider? How do we know if they want to assimilate? How do we know if they want to bring terror into the United States? How will we ascertain that?

Ryan replied:

Well, first of all, I don’t think a religious test is appropriate. That’s not who we are. We believe in the first amendment of religious freedom. And I don’t think it’s the appropriate test because anybody can come under the guise of something else. It’s not hard for a person to claim that they are something that they’re not— like a Christian or something like that to get into the country. That is why we are calling for a security test. I think the test that maters is a security test because anybody can try and infiltrate this country by posing as something that they are not, so I don’t think that’s the proper test. I think a security test is the proper test.

Ryan’s view stands opposed to that of his Congressional colleagues Sen. Rand Paul, Reps. Cynthia Lummis, Brian Babin, Dave Brat, Randy Weber and Steve King, who—as Breitbart News recently reported—have all expressed support for a reduction or suspension of visa issuances to Muslim countries with jihadist movements.

Ex-Navy Seal Tells Katy Perry to “Go to hell” During Fox News Interview

Katy Perry is one of the (((entertainment industry’s))) key propagandists, indoctrinating white youths into race mixing and capitulation to the New World Order agenda. She’s admitted selling her soul to the devil.

In her newest song video she symbolically offers herself for group sex with a group of Negros, apparently for the Nogs to perform oral sex on her.

Ex-Navy Seal Carl Higbie is having none of her pro-Muslim, pro-terrorist nonsense.

Breitbart

Former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie urged pop singer Katy Perry to try holding a concert in Syria if she wants to “hug it out” with Islamic terrorists.

Higbie, appearing as a guest on Fox News Thursday, said, “Go to hell, Katy Perry. Hold one of your concerts in Syria and see how that goes.”

The ex-Navy SEAL was responding to Perry’s recent interview Tuesday on the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show in which the singer made a plea for people to “co-exist” and to remove “barriers” and “borders” after the Manchester, U.K. Islamic terrorist attack that took the lives of at least 22 people, many of them children, and wounded at least 59 more.

The 32-year-old Perry also gave a group hug to fans in New York City Tuesday as a sign of support for the victims of the attack that occurred at the Ariana Grande concert on Monday evening.

“I love you,” Perry said to her fans, reports the Daily Mail. “We’re all in this together.”

“These people fundamentally don’t understand what’s going on here,” Higbie continued. “They don’t understand any of this – and they don’t want to understand, too. And that’s why I’m so strong against these celebrities who speak out, saying ‘Oh, we can fight this through love, it’s not really violent, they don’t really mean it.’”

Perry supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race and marched in the anti-Trump Women’s March on Washington, D.C. following Trump’s inauguration.

“We’re putting the political correctness of the Islamic culture over the lives of our citizens – and we need to stop that immediately,” Higbie urged.

Though he was criticized for telling Perry to “go to hell,” Higbie is not backing down on his comments.

“No. I’m doubling down,” he told the Daily Caller.

“The problem is that Katy Perry lives in a bubble,” he continued. “She influences millions of young children who believe everything that comes out of her mouth. It’s irresponsible of her to say something like this, when she has no understanding of the situation. Open borders would be a disaster.”

Congress should insist that celebrities that support open borders be required to share their living quarters with Muslims. Katy Perry has plenty of spare bedrooms to house some of those nice young Muslim males we see beheading hostages for ISIS. If she won’t go to Syria, maybe we can bring Syria into her estate.

Pathetic Weakling Paul Ryan Calls on Heroic Gianforte to Apologize for Beatdown of Jew Reporter

GREG GIANFORTE. BODY SLAMMING EXPERT.

NBC News

WASHINGTON — House Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday called on Republican Greg Gianforte to apologize after he was charged with assaulting a reporter, but said he will leave it up to Montana voters to decide whether they want him to serve in Congress.

“I do not think this is acceptable behavior, but the choice will be made by the people of Montana,” Ryan said during a press conference. “I think he should apologize.”

WEAKLING.

A Montana sheriff charged Gianforte with misdemeanor assault Wednesday night after Guardian journalist Ben Jacobs said the politician “body slammed” him at a campaign event in Bozeman while the reporter tried to ask a question.

The incident occurred hours before polls opened Thursday in the high-profile race between Gianforte and Democrat Rob Quist for the state’s open House seat.

Democrats immediately demanded Gianforte withdraw from the race, while three of the state’s largest newspapers rescinded their endorsements of the GOP candidate.

Eyewitness account:

But a defiant Gianforte portrayed himself as the victim, with a spokesperson blaming the “aggressive behavior from a liberal journalist.”

Republicans for the most part stood by Gianforte, with several telling reporters he would be welcome on Capitol Hill.

“We all make mistakes,” said Ohio GOP Rep. Steve Stivers, the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee. “From what I know of Greg Gianforte, this was totally out of character.”

Montana Sen. Steve Daines, one of Gianforte’s biggest supporters, called on the candidate to apologize and said he would leave it up to law enforcement. “I do not condone violence in any way,” he said.

A source close to the Gianforte campaign told NBC News they raised over $100,000 online in the 24 hours, with most of the donations coming after the incident.

Jacobs told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that he was trying to ask Gianforte about the Congressional Budget Office’s financial analysis of the Republican health care plan when “the next thing I know, I’m being body-slammed.”

WEASEL.

“He’s on top of me. My glasses are broken,” Jacobs said. “It’s the strangest moment that’s happened in my entire life reporting.”

Jacobs’ claims were supported by an audio recording of the event and an eyewitness account by a Fox News crew that happened to be in the same room.

Hannity Wimps Out! Drops Seth Rich Investigation!

Sean Hannity had defiantly vowed on his radio program to continue his investigation of the murder of DNC stagger Seth Rich.

By nightfall, as he appeared on his Fox News TV show, he sang a different tune.

Somebody with a great deal of power and influence does not want the murder of Seth Rich investigated. Hannity may have been threatened or blackmailed. In any case, he looks really, really stupid today.

Contrary to what Variety is about to tell you, NOTHING has been debunked. The Seth Rich murder is unsolved and no aspect of it has been thoroughly investigated that the public has been made aware of.

Variety

After several days of promoting a debunked theory surrounding the death of Democratic National Committee staffer, Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity said he would cease discussing the matter out of respect for the man’s family.

During Monday night’s broadcast of his regular primetime show, Hannity told viewers he had been in contact with the brother of former DNC Staffer Seth Rich and had expressed his condolences. Hannity had on a few recent occasions begun to take up a discredited story that has been promoted in other right-leaning publications suggesting that Rich, who was murdered in Washington D.C. in July had been targeted in retaliation for the leak of internal DNC documents to Wikileaks. There has been no credible evidence to date supporting the allegations, and Hannity’s broadcasts prompted outcry from Rich’s family.

“Out of respect for the family’s wishes, for now, I am not discussing the matter at this time,” Hannity said. Fox News earlier on Monday retracted a story about the debunked theory online – believed to be one of the first times the 21st Century Fox-owned outlet has withdrawn an article over its more than 20-year history.

Fox News lent the story new momentum last week when it posted an item about the story after Rod Wheeler, a Fox News contributor who is also a private investigator Rich’s family has hired, was shown on Fox affiliate WTTG suggesting he had evidence linking Rich to Wikileaks. Subsequently, Wheeler told CNN he had no evidence.

Hannity vowed to viewers that he would continue to investigate the circumstances of Rich’s death. “I promise you I am not going to stop trying to find the truth,” he said. Earlier in the day on his regular radio broadcast, Hannity said he would not retract his statements on the story, even though Fox News Channel had. “All of you in the liberal media: I am not Fox.com or FoxNews.com. I retracted nothing,” Hannity said on his Tuesday radio show.

After teasing viewers earlier in the day that he would also discuss his “future at Fox,” Hannity reassured fans that he would be staying. It’s the second time in recent weeks he has hinted that he might drop a bombshell about his employment at the network, only to reiterate his desire to stick around for the foreseeable future. Hannity is believed to be working under a contract that expires sometime around 2020. He is one of Fox News’s most-watched and best-known personalities.
