Fox News Fans Shocked After Megyn Kelly Does THIS on Live TV

The shows bracketing Megyn Kelly’s show on Fox News are The O’Reilly Factor at 8 p.m. and Sean Hannity‘s program at 10 p.m. She made it clear on Colbert’s show that her’s is live and their’s isn’t. That strikes me as a thinly veiled, cheap shot at O’Reilly and Hannity. It could have been innocent, but I kind of doubt it. Kelly is brilliant and she’s adept in swimming in the media shark-infested waters at Fox News. I think she chose her words carefully there. She is infamous for her aggressive ladder climbing, if you will. “You’re in an O’Reilly-Hannity sandwich there, and those guys are just phoning it in!” Colbert joked. That makes her fellow hosts look bad and she has to know it.

From Mediaite:

“We’ll do it live!” may be one of the most famous outbursts from Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, but according to Megyn Kelly, that’s not quite right.

On Sunday night following the Broncos win over the Patriots, Stephen Colbert hosted a special post-game edition of The Late Show on CBS, and Kelly admitted the advantages that she has broadcasting live at 9 p.m., as opposed to her colleagues.

“I think it adds a lot to the show,” Kelly began. “If you’re not live at night — because the show before me and the show after me are taped — you lose a lot.”

Remember this is the woman who viciously went after Donald Trump long before he was really dusting it up with others in the Republican race for the nomination. She falsely accused Ted Cruz of supporting Amnesty during a debate and only corrected that false allegation afterwards in her next airing. She’s also a hot commodity and other networks have offered her a yearly paycheck in the millions of dollars if she will jump ship at Fox. While Kelly fell short of admitting that her highly-respected and rated colleagues “phone-in” their shows, she did admit that her 9 p.m. slot benefits from the fact that O’Reilly and Hannity are not live. “Let’s just say they tape earlier in the day which is an advantage to us,” she said. The comment landed a bit awkwardly with the crowd at the Ed Sullivan Theater, to which Colbert simply said, “All right, wow, OK” before quickly changing the subject. I’m beginning to wonder if there isn’t anyone this barracuda won’t take aim at in her rise to infamy.
