NBC Pulls Plug on Megyn Kelly’s Morning Show

At the time there were already rumors of her show's demise.

The subject was how the "costume police" are cracking down on outfits ahead of Halloween. "I was born in the same decade as Megyn Kelly and do not recall blackface being acceptable anywhere, anytime", tweeted Alex Wagner of CBS News. She said she wasn't clear on why some consider the practices racist. On Tuesday, she defended Real Housewives of NY star Luann de Lesseps' Diana Ross Halloween costume, saying, "Who doesn't love Diana Ross?".

"But what is racist?" she wondered aloud.

The cancellation came four days after Kelly provoked a firestorm of criticism for asking on air why dressing up in blackface for a Halloween costume is wrong. And because no one was there to directly address those questions at the time, it became a viral controversy. The two explained that in the USA, there is a long history of blackface used to mock and belittle black people.

Sadly, that wasn't enough to save her job, and now she is being smeared by NBC. She also gave a platform to allegations against NBC News's Tom Brokaw, both of which stirred resentment among her NBC colleagues. And as The Hill's Joe Concha pointed out, NBC set her up to fail.

Megyn Kelly has a new defender in her corner as she heads towards a potential exit at NBC: Catholic League president Bill Donahue. Now her agent is out and she has no show.

"We are extremely happy with our entire lineup", said a Fox News spokesperson.

News says the "Megyn Kelly Today" show is being canceled.

She offered a fuller apology to the nation at large, in which she said, through tears, that she did not mean to hurt anyone, let alone further divisions in the country.

Also early Friday, NBC News published the report that characterized the exit as happening soon. Beginning Monday, NBC will feature other "Today" anchors. What's ironic is that her offense pales in comparison to the wrongdoings of other NBC talent.

Will you miss Megyn Kelly Today? I happen to like Megyn Kelly. Most of the jokes had to do with the issue of child molestation within the Catholic Church.

This messy divorce, while inevitable, was necessary. "In fact, many of them like it".

She continued, "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 lighter or a white person making theirs darker to make a costume complete".

She left that network early past year and joined NBC.
