What do Americans Really Think About NBC Firing Megyn Kelly? New Poll has the Answer.

Wow. Looks like they might have made the wrong call.

Remember last week when NBC host Megyn Kelly was booted from the network after making some controversial remarks about blackface as part of a person’s Halloween costume? Well, it seems that not everyone is on the same page with NBC’s decision to fire Kelly.

A new poll is reporting that 45 percent of folks surveyed about the action NBC took against Kelly believe it was too harsh.

The poll, which was conducted by The Hollywood Reporter and Morning Consult, was taken several days after NBC host Megyn Kelly made remarks about blackface and Halloween.

Of the 2,201 adult Americans polled in the survey, 45 percent believed that NBC’s decision to cancel the show was “too harsh of a consequence.” Twenty-six percent of those polled said that canceling the show was “the appropriate consequence for her comments.”

The poll noted that 6 percent of respondents said that Kelly’s remarks improved their opinion of her, while 48 percent said that her remarks made “no difference either way.”

The poll also noted that 29 percent of respondents had a “somewhat less favorable” or “much less favorable” view of the network after their decision to cancel the show.

NBC’s action to fire Kelly came even after she issues a public apology for the comments. It was apparently too little, too late.

“You may have heard that yesterday we had a discussion here about political correctness and Halloween costumes. And that conversation turned to whether it is ever OK for a person of one race to dress up as another, a black person making their face whiter or a white person making theirs darker, to make a costume complete,” Kelly explained in a portion of her apology. “I defended the idea, saying as long as it was respectful and part of a Halloween costume it seemed OK. Well, I was wrong and I am sorry.”

Many networks have been falling prey to knee-jerk reactions involving the comments of their staff and folks who work for them. Just look at what happened to Roseanne Barr. Freedom of speech and tolerance for folks who make mistakes is at an all time low. Let’s hope that changes.

Fox News Employees Resign Over Tucker Carlson’s Latest Jan 6 Series

The pair were incensed at Carlson’s claims.

Tucker Carlson is no stranger to controversy, having helmed one of the most popular television shows in the mainstream media, but his latest look at the events of January 6th appears to have irked some at Fox News.

Carlson’s “Patriot Purge” series examines the pervasive theory that the event itself was a “false flag” attack, carried out by the enemies of American conservatism, in an effort to vilify those who identify as right-of-center.

The premise did not sit well with at least two of Fox News’ longtime employees.

Fox News contributors Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes have resigned following the release of Tucker Carlson’s documentary on the January 6 Capitol insurrection, “Patriot Purge,” citing concerns about the documentary’s potential to incite violence and the cable news outlet’s direction of coverage in the post-Trump era, The New York Times reported.

Goldberg and Hayes joined Fox News as contributors in early 2009 while also working for conservative political magazines. In 2019, they worked together to found The Dispatch, a conservative online publication with nearly 30,000 paying subscribers, according to The New York Times.

The pair believed that Carlson’s docu-series was inherently “dangerous”.

“This is not happening. And we think it’s dangerous to pretend it is. If a person with such a platform shares such misinformation loud enough and long enough, there are Americans who will believe — and act upon — it,” Goldberg and Hayes said in a statement. “This isn’t theoretical. This is what actually happened on January 6, 2021.”

The news comes just days after another Fox News personality, legendary journalist Geraldo Rivera, spoke out about the content of “Patriot Purge”, stating bluntly that he found the allegations of a false flag attack to be “bulls***”.
