On Megyn Kelly’s rumored move to Hannity’s time slot and the future of Fox “News”
Read the whole thing, but the final paragraph sums it up nicely.
But ultimately this is about the future of Fox News and Roger Ailes’ political mission. So if Megyn Kelly does indeed take the 9 p.m. time slot, look out for conflict. Kelly is uniquely positioned to be the Fox News arbiter of right-wing chicanery. It’ll be good television, and she’ll probably call out enough people like Erick Erickson to get attention in the zeitgeist. But while she’s doing that, she’ll also probably be pushing more subtle misinformation that will inevitably find its way into other media outlets. That’s her track record, and after all, she still works for Roger Ailes. It’s a “course correction,” but the destination remains the same.
