Yesterday morning, Fox News announced Tucker Carlson will be taking Megan Kelly’s 9 PM EST time slot. Kelly announced earlier this week she would be finishing out her contract with Fox and be heading to NBC. Her NBC offer includes a daytime show, a late-Sunday news program, and various political commentary opportunities.
‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ aired in mid-November and has already made history with 3.7 million viewers tuning in for its debut. Timing is everything and Carlson rode the #MAGA train to the best time slot on the most popular cable television network.
Why? The American consciousness is being awakened by the re-energization of the conservative movement with a Trump Administration serving as its mouthpiece.
Tucker understands this, has capitalized on the opportunity, and will use it to become a successful face of Fox News giving old Bill a run for his money. Megan’s career will tank as she serves as the token conservative only looking to rub shoulders with the dying liberal media elite.
Kelly’s daytime show will plunge into failure with the likes of Katie Couric and Anderson Cooper as she explores the progressive, human-interest side of the news while scrubbing the Fox News stink off her pencil dresses. On Sunday evenings she’ll try to embody a Barbara Walters/Diane Sawyer-like persona to demonstrate her range but will inevitably fail as she crashes into the narrow confines of allowable progressive journalistic standards.
She will be the blonde NBC refugee who braved across Midtown Manhattan to try to seek a better life while trying to explain to dumb cucks who still watch the network why a Trump Administration already is and will be so successful.
The liberal media are already convincing themselves that Tucker’s promotion is Murdoch’s peace offering to appease the incoming Trump Administration.
In reality, Megan Kelly played her victimhood card and lost the conservative audience that was loyal to her for twelve years to gain BFF status with the likes of Lester Holt and Chuck Todd.
She was sick of being second to Bill O’Reilly (both in show ratings & book sales) so she leveraged her bogus grievances with Murdoch and Trump into an offer with a floundering network. She sold out her values, rid herself the most successful platform she will ever have as a journalist to become a RINO hack.
I just hope NBC realizes that much of her success was measured by the O’Reilly Factor audience lead in to her 9PM EST spot. I guess it’s too late now…
