NYT: Megyn Kelly Leaving Fox News for NBC

NOW BREAKING: According to the NEW YORK TIMES, longtime Fox News host Megyn Kelly has accepted a position with NBC for a daytime talk program, a Sunday news show, and be an ongoing political contributor to the network.

The NYT report indicated the full amount of Mrs. Kelly’s compensation have not yet been disclosed.

Fox News has yet to react as well, though the Times has indicated Kelly’s departure signals a “seismic shift” in the longtime-leading cable news network:

“…The NBC News chairman, Andrew Lack, wooed Ms. Kelly away from Fox News by offering her a triple role in which she will host her own daytime news and discussion program, anchor an in-depth Sunday night news show and take regular part in the network’s special political programming and other big-event coverage.

The move will herald a seismic shift in the cable news landscape, where Ms. Kelly had become the second-most watched host — after Bill O’Reilly of Fox News — and often helped define the national political debate.”

Clinton Campaign Tells Debate Moderator Lester Holt To Attack Trump & Protect Hillary

And the order came directly from the top of the Hillary Clinton campaign. 

Campaign manager Robby Mook, during an interview with CBS, stated he fully expects Lester Holt, the NBC anchor and moderator for tonight’s debate, to “check” Donald Trump.

“We are concerned that Donald Trump may lie, he may throw misinformation out there, and that Hillary will have to spend all of her time trying to correct the record rather than talking about the things she wants to accomplish…So if Donald Trump lies, which he has repeatedly done in the past, that that be simply checked.” -Clinton campaign manager, Robby Mook

The instructions are clear, the intent certain.

Lester Holt is to actively insert himself into tonight’s debate, and play the role of facilitator FOR the Hillary Clinton campaign. What Mook is asking for, is that if Donald Trump is winning the debate, Holt is to intervene on Hillary Clinton’s behalf.

The question now is if Mr. Holt will do the bidding of the Clinton campaign and the vast majority within the Mainstream Media, and do just that, or will he instead do the bidding of the American people who want, for once, a fair and balanced presidential debate?

We’ll have our answer soon enough.

BREAKING: D.C. Whispers Coverage Confirmed – NBC Fires Donald Trump

He spoke truth regarding the chaos along the U.S.-Mexico border, then refused to apologize for having done so, and now as initially reported here at D.C. Whispers, NBC is capitulating to the demands of various Hispanic activist groups and abruptly ending its long-standing business relationship with Donald Trump.

D.C. Whispers reported the following earlier:

“The last few days have seen a flurry of activity both from within the camp of presidential candidate Donald Trump and media forces, including NBC, that are now more intent than ever to punish him for publicly stating his pro-America views that include a suggestion to build a southern border wall, bomb ISIS-controlled oil fields in Iraq, and aggressively push back against trade-imbalance nations like China, Japan, and Mexico who Mr. Trump says are costing millions of American jobs to be lost overseas.”

As Media Backlash Builds, Donald Trump Doubles Down On “America First” Views…

Just-breaking news now confirms NBC has announced it is severing all business ties with Donald Trump, thus ending a lucrative relationship dating back more than a decade.

NBC released the following official statement regarding the move:

“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” the company said in a statement on Monday. “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”

Mr. Trump responded by telling reporters that though he had enjoyed a “great relationship” with NBC, he has no intention of apologizing for his statements regarding the increasingly chaotic immigration issue. The billionaire real estate developer also hinted at a possible lawsuit against the network.

NBC’s move came after a petition demanding the network “Dump Trump” received more than 200,000 online signatures. The petition was organized by Change.org .

 

UPDATE: Mr. Trump just added to his comments regarding the recently terminated business relationship with NBC, and in true Trump fashion, the recent GOP candidate for president didn’t mince words:

“If NBC is so weak and so foolish to not understand the serious illegal immigration problem in the United States, coupled with the horrendous and unfair trade deals we are making with Mexico, then their contract violating closure of Miss Universe/Miss USA will be determined in court. Furthermore, they will stand behind lying Brian Williams, but won’t stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be.”

As Media Backlash Builds, Donald Trump Doubles Down On “America First” Views…

The last few days have seen a flurry of activity both from within the camp of presidential candidate Donald Trump and media forces, including NBC, that are now more intent than ever to punish him for publicly stating his pro-America views that include a suggestion to build a southern border wall, bomb ISIS-controlled oil fields in Iraq, and aggressively push back against trade-imbalance nations like China, Japan, and Mexico who Mr. Trump says are costing millions of American jobs to be lost overseas.

(Trump tells the Mexican government, “Those days are over.”)

__________________________

Within hours after news agencies began reporting on a push back by Mexican-owned Univision, which broadcasts Mr.Trump’s Miss Universe pageant to a large Spanish-speaking audience both in the United States and Mexico, Team Trump warned the television network of its contractual obligations. Then Alberto Ciruana, Univision’s President of Programming and Content at the network compared Trump to the Charleston South Carolina shooter.

At this point most American politicians would have been in a panic, fearing a full-on media attack.

Mr. Trump did the opposite – sending Univision executives the following letter which then went viral and if anything, has only bolstered Trump’s support among a wide swath of potential 2016 voters, particularly with the P.S. portion of the letter which appears to be a direct shot across the bow of the Mexican government itself:

In conjunction with the letter, Mr. Trump threatened to sue Univision for defamation, a lawsuit some legal experts indicated could have led to Trump perhaps even owning the network if he chose to do so. It should also be noted that throughout his challenges against both Univision and the Mexican government, Trump has maintained his admiration for the majority of the Mexican people themselves. Mexican citizens are unified in their dislike of their own government, and thus Trump is building common ground between himself and them, a rather brilliant tactical move politically that has the left preparing to wage all out war on a Republican candidate who dares threaten their belief they own the Hispanic vote in the United States.

Univision promptly apologized for the now deleted comparison between Donald Trump and the Charleston shooter as Trump’s standing in political polls surged upward.

No Republican candidate has ever exposed the inherent bias of the Mainstream Media as has Donald Trump in the last week and come out the stronger for it. Even voters who indicate they would likely never vote for Mr. Trump are applauding his fearless and unapologetic manner.

GOP power brokers continue to shake their heads at the Trump candidacy, but now instead of doing so out of embarrassment, it is out of a growing concern that Donald Trump is bypassing those same power brokers and taking his pro-America message directly to the voters.

This means candidate Trump will face incoming challenges not only from the Mainstream Media and others among the far left, but the Republican Machine as well.  If the fracas between Trump and Univision is any indication, it is going to be one hell of a fight that will either lead to the downfall of the Trump campaign, or have him emerge as a legitimate and increasingly powerful challenger to the White House in 2016.
