Megyn Kelly ditched politics for morning television. Did she make a mistake?
By The Guardian,Oct. 26, 2017
One year ago, Megyn Kelly was on top of the world. Her nightly Fox News program The Kelly File had briefly unseated The O’Reilly Factor at the top of the ratings. The host had begun – despite a 12-year tenure at the network of Roger Ailes – to ingratiate herself with conservatives and liberals alike. She even seemed, for a moment, impervious to the fickle nature of newscasting: the critics who excoriated her history of racially insensitive remarks would just as easily anoint her a feminist firebrand for her takedowns of Newt Gingrich and Anthony Weiner. With a forthcoming memoir and contract negotiations looming, she was in pole position. But Kelly was, to hear her tell it, unhappy; being an enemy of Donald Trump’s can have that effect.
