Sources: Megyn Kelly is a Diva and Might Get Fired By NBC

on

Megyn Kelly is in hot water at NBC.  According to sources, she may have just one more chance to prove she is worth her $17 million salary.

Her Sunday night show was a catastrophe.  In fact, NBC pulled it off the air before it reached it’s 10 episode deal.  Even an interview with Vladimir Putin didn’t save the views.  People are just not interested in Kelly.

Although she is on thin ice, Kelly still has a 9 a.m. morning show.  According to sources, NBC is in crisis mode to make sure it succeeds.  They are pulling out all the stops.

After suffering the blow of a cancelled show, one would think Ms. Kelly would have learned a lesson in humility.  However, her reported diva behavior has endangered her career even further.

From The New York Post:

Kelly is on a five-day nationwide tour to visit affiliates in major markets, and she is traveling on a charter jet with a support staff of five or six people.  Including a hairstylist, a makeup artist, a publicist, and security detail.

The NBC staff is apparently more than a little put off by the amount of money being wasted on Megyn.  Rightly so, as her career at NBC has been a flop thus far.

Apparently, NBC has a bit of sunk cost fallacy.  If you’re not familiar:

The Misconception: You make rational decisions based on the future value of objects, investments and experiences.

The Truth: Your decisions are tainted by the emotional investments you accumulate, and the more you invest in something the harder it becomes to abandon it.

Kelly left Fox News in a sea of controversy.  Her testimony ousted Roger Ailes.  She repeatedly angered her coworkers.  And as many saw at the Republican debates, she was unprofessional towards now-POTUS Trump.

One year ago, Kelly seemed like a home run.  She was a household name, had just released a book, etc.  Unfortunately, today she is irrelevant and people don’t trust her.

NBC should sever ties before they waste any more money on this bad investment.

    Fire Andy Lack. He’s the idiot who is destroying NBC News and who insisted on hiring her. There’s a reason he was fired from NBC the first time!
