A petition has been circulating the web demanding FOX News to remove Megyn Kelly.
The petition states:
Megyn Kelly is a news person with an agenda. Instead of reporting the news, she attempts to distort and manipulate facts to support her own agenda. Her latest victim is Donald Trump. A news source should not be trying to influence the American Voter. FOX professes to be fair and balance but Kelly loads her panels with those that support her views. This has become a typical FOX News ploy during these elections. Kelly needs to be removed from her position until she has learned the mantra “The facts, ma’am, just the facts.”
The petition is only 779 signatures away from reaching the 35,000 signature goal.
.The Wall Street Journal Reported that Kelly’s current contract with FOX News is up in July, and The Kelly File’ host is in active negotiations with the network.
According to FOX, keeping her at the network is a priority for management, including Rupert Murdoch. ‘It’s up to her’ and others ‘would give their right arm for her spot,’ he says.
For the final year of her current deal, Ms. Kelly is set to receive about $15 million. She is seeking an average annual salary north of $20 million for her next contract—which would put her on par with Fox host Bill O’Reilly.
Ms. Kelly’s show has averaged 2.7 million viewers this year, according to Nielsen, second among Fox News shows to Mr. O’Reilly’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” which is averaging 3.2 million viewers this year.
