Let the games begin.
Would love for Hannity to be letting go of TV slot. I don't care for him personally, his style is grating.
I am no fan of Fox, but this is a chess move and a good one.
It is a step towards mending their image as a spin machine, they got rid of the biggest partisan. They replaced him with a news person (still partisan but way more respected). They gave her the best lead in in cable news and put her up against a hyper partisan Maddow on one side and a vulnerable Piers Morgan on the other. She could really do damage to both.
It's really a smart play.
beautiful smart lady-conservative attorney but not over the top
Fox says no comment at this time
maybe she is going to be Hannity's cohost
It worries me only because I think more people will believe they're getting "news" from television.
It's not like either of those networks offerings have or promise to be any sort of threat to FOX's rating in that hour, or any other hour. I don't think a move like this has any roots in trying to "rehab" their image with the dozen people who are on the fence between Maddow and Hannity.
Megyn Kelly is just a legit mind and a legit interview and a compelling host. Gorgeous is just gravy.
It's not that they are a threat, it's a chance to peel off more market share. The respectability she brings gives her a much higher ceiling than Hannity ever had. And if you have a chance to knock your competitors down you do it, even if you are already in good position.
The rehab, or more accurately image change started after the election when Fox cleaned out some of their more wacky contributors this is a continuation of that. They realized that conservatives will watch the network regardless, but slicing off even another 5%-10% of the next group over means not only more dollars but also more power that comes with more respectability and market share. It's a smart play.
Megyn is good and smart, not to mention nice to look at too.
I would give her the 6-9 slot and then remove the dash. Chick just does it for me.
other than hard news, none of you should be getting your "news" from the tv, especially not the 24/7 channels
I'd like to put some hard news in her slot
And just what news source do you think is trust worrhy
Don't like her.
To bitey, excessive snark, condescending, and no humility.
Seems like a smart play. Not sure what the appeal is to Hannity. NY thing I guess with all the shouting over each other. Funny thing about NYers is they have an innate ability to actually hear what's being said even though it's all being said at the same time.
She gets that on O'Reilly.
