Megyn Kelly bolts Fox for NBC News

Fox News star Megyn Kelly is leaving the network for a new job at NBC News.

The New York Times reports that Kelly has agreed to join the network for a daytime news program and an “in-depth” weekend news program. The report also claims that Kelly will “take regular part in the network’s special political programming and other big-event coverage.”

Although Kelly quickly rose to become a star at the conservative cable news network, she upset some Fox viewers this year thanks to her frequent clashes with President-elect Donald Trump.

After a Kelly-moderated debate last fall, Trump accused the Fox host of having “blood coming out of her wherever” as she asked him questions. Kelly, for her part, angered Trump surrogate Newt Gingrich on her program when she questioned whether Trump was a sexual predator.

Kelly was also instrumental in the dismissal of longtime Fox News boss Roger Ailes, who was accused by Kelly and several other female Fox News employees of sexual harassment.

The official press release announcing Kelly’s arrival at NBC News follows below, via Politico reporter Hadas Gold.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews suggests four more years of Trump might be better for Democratic Party

Published

As Sen. Bernie Sanders appeared headed for a decisive victory Saturday in the Nevada caucuses, MSNBC host Chris Matthews pondered whether President Donald Trump's re-election might be better for the Democratic establishment than the Vermont senator's multiracial, multigenerational movement taking over the party.

"I'm wondering if Democratic moderates want Bernie Sanders to be President?" said Matthews. "Maybe that's too exciting a question to raise. Do they want Bernie to take over the Democratic Party in perpetuity? Maybe they'd rather wait 4 years and put in a Democrat that they like."
