    Megyn Kelly is ready to get back on TV. Page Six has exclusively learned that Kelly will officially start at NBC next month. “She will start in May, and her Sunday show will premiere in June,” a network insider told us. Kelly had been expected to start in July after her Fox contract expired, but she was just released from her Fox deal two weeks ago. She will join Kate Snow as part of NBC News’ Sunday night programming. NBC News vet and former “Dateline” executive producer David Corvo will executive produce Kelly’s Sunday show with another longtime NBC producer,...
  • NBC Ignores American Arrested in North Korea, But Slams Palin Photo

    Troubling news broke out of North Korea early Sunday morning after an American citizen was arrest by North Korean officials on Saturday. “It has been confirmed that another American has been arrested in North Korea's capital, Pyongyang, which about 120 miles north from here from Seoul,” reported ABC’s Bob Woodruff during Good Morning America. It’s shocking news that hits just as tensions between the U.S. and communist regime are near a boiling point. Despite those facts, NBC’s Willie Geist failed to mention the development during his show, Sunday Today. “His name so far is not known,” noted Woodruff. “But the...
  • Susan Rice Did Nothing Wrong, Say Both Dems and Republicans (VERY FAKE NEWS)

    "I saw no evidence of any wrongdoing," said one U.S. official who reviewed the documents, who would not agree to be identified further. "It was all completely normal." His assessment was shared by a senior Republican aide who had been briefed on the matter but declined to speak on the record.
  • NBC Sports: U.S. Flag at Baseball Games Too Political

    Everything is political to the overly sensitive mind of today’s leftist. When the Atlanta Braves unfurled a gigantic flag for the playing of the national anthem, it prompted an ultra sensitive member of the partisan media and his Twitter followers to express a whole host of ridiculous claims. In a Twitter post this weekend, NBC baseball writer Craig Calcaterra complained that the presentation of Old Glory evoked overly political tones. He and his like-minded comrades used the occasion to attack the flag, the military, President Trump, conservatives and the singing of God Bless America: Will you keep politics out of...
  • NBC: US Ready for 'Preemptive Strike' to Stop North Korea

    04/14/2017 7:22:26 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 32 replies ^ | Todd Beamon
    The U.S. is ready to use conventional weapons in a preemptive strike should the Trump administration believe North Korea will follow through with a nuclear weapons test this weekend, American intelligence officials said Thursday. "It's high stakes," a top official told NBC News. "We are trying to communicate our level of concern and the existence of many military options to dissuade the North first. "It's a feat that we've never achieved before, but there is a new sense of resolve here," the official said. The Pentagon declined to comment, saying, as a policy, it does not discuss future operations "nor...

    Megyn Kelly's first interview in her new role as an NBC News host may be a coveted one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The network's chairman Andy Lack flew to Russia this week to try to secure the interview, according insiders. He will appeal to Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov to take part in the sit-down which would make Kelly's hotly anticipated debut on the network even more memorable. The 46-year-old was released early from her contract with rival Fox News in March after she signed a $15million, two-show deal with NBC.

    Savannah Guthrie tried to shut down the rumors of friction at NBC over new hire Megyn Kelly, saying she feels 'lucky' at the change to work with the longtime Fox News anchor. The Today Show co-host was asked about Kelly in an anchor roundtable hosted by The Hollywood Reporter. 'She and I have a lot in common, actually. We both went to law school and then ran screaming for our lives away from the law,' Guthrie said. 'We both came up in D.C. But yeah, we're excited to have her. I think she's going to be great. We feel lucky....
  • ‘Meet the Press’ Debates If Hillary Lost Because of the Country’s ‘Misogyny’

    In a ridiculous discussion that sounded as though it belonged in a forum of a left-wing website, the panel on Sunday’s Meet the Press bemoaned how the country’s attitude towards women cost Hillary Clinton the White House. Moderator Chuck Todd read from the recent NYT column of Nicholas Kristof, who described Clinton’s idea of Trump voters as “I don’t agree with him, I’m not sure I really approve of him, but he looks like somebody who’s been president before.” Paraphrasing Clinton, Todd suggested that “she believed misogyny played a much larger role in this than it’s been analyzed by many...

    Rachel Maddow's fans are not happy. People took Twitter to express their outrage at "sexist" NBC after the MSNBC anchor, host of "The Rachel Maddow Show," was replaced by Brian Williams during breaking news coverage of the U.S. missile attack on Thursday night. Williams, the breaking news anchor for the network, took over during Maddow's 9 p.m. slot when news broke that the U.S. military fired more than 50 missiles at Syrian base in response to what it believes was a chemical weapons attack that killed more than 100 people. Numerous people bashed the news network for its decision, with...

    A massive revelation in the alleged surveillance of President Trump’s aides broke Monday morning when Bloomberg reported that “[f]ormer National Security Adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign.” With their identities unmasked, it allowed for someone to freely and illegally leak their names to the press. It’s controversial news but ABC and NBC both chose to ignore it that night, while CBS defended Rice. {..snip..}

He followed up, using language similar to President Trump's, tweeting, "Lyin', leakin' Susan Rice stammered through her soft ball interview with Dem PR person Andrea Mitchell."

    While NBC News is usually in lock step with the agenda and talking points of the Democratic Party, on Monday, even the liberal analysts on the Today show were forced to acknowledge that Senate Democrats had “painted themselves in a corner” with their partisan push to filibuster Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Leading off a discussion on the topic with MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber and NBC political analyst Nicolle Wallace, co-host Savannah Guthrie asked: “What are the stakes here?” Melber replied: “The stakes are high. The Republicans are willing to do everything they need to do, including potentially...

    With the Senate’s Supreme Court confirmation vote for Judge Neil Gorsuch just days away and the possibly of Republicans nuking the filibuster looming, NBC’s Chuck Todd seemed as though he was in a near panic on Sunday’s Meet The Press. Besides his declarations of the GOP continuing the Senate’s decent down the “slippery slope” of removing the filibuster, Todd pestered Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the Senate to hold a vote for former President Barack Obama’s nominee, Judge Merrick Garland. “There is clearly a debate and a fight about how Supreme Court justices are confirmed, how it was handled,”...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” NBC’s “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd said President Donald Trump must accept “the fact” that Russia interfered in this election or he will be “on the brink of becoming a temporary lame duck presidency.” Todd said, “You have a presidency right now that I think is, it’s beyond saying it’s in crisis mode, it’s, you know, it’s on the brink, the question is on the brink of what? Is it on the brink of collapse? Is it on the brink of becoming a temporary lame duck presidency? Maybe it feels lame-duckish temporarily right...

    NBC will broadcast the Olympics live across all US time zones for the first time, the TV network has announced. Up until now, the Olympics has not been shown live in Pacific and Mountain time zones which has annoyed sports fans in those regions. NBC announced that next year's Winter Olympics will be the first not to have a tape-delay. The network's move to coast-to-coast live coverage is an acknowledgement that in the age of social media and other online platforms, holding back results and highlights no longer makes sense.

    On its 'Today Show' earlier this morning, NBC revealed that it has signed former Obama White House press secretary Josh Earnest as a political analyst. Earnest is expected to provide political commentary on NBC and MSNBC. And, in an hilarious welcoming statement, the Today Show's Savannah Guthrie warned Earnest that he would now have to disavow himself of his political bias to provide impartial political analysis...just before inviting him to take shots at Republicans. "White House Press Secretary under President Obama we're pleased to announce is joining us a political analyst." "Now you have to wear your analyst hat, not...

  • Bill O’Reilly Reveals Megyn Kelly’s “Nickname” at Fox News. She’s NOT Happy.

    (Angry Patriot) – During her tenure at Fox News, Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly were constantly at each other’s throats — often over her selfish attitude and need to make everything about her. So, it makes perfect sense that O’Reilly revealed that her nickname was “Me-Again” Kelly, via Washington Feed. According to O’Reilly, it was “always about Megyn,” which is not hard to believe. All of the drama surrounding Kelly is coming out in the open after she tore up her contract with Fox News, with some months still remaining on it. Kelly was on a break from Fox News...
