Today in You’re Fired’ed News

Say goodbye, Megyn.

Our secret Scissorhead at NBC says that she is out. It’s unclear from our chat in the bat cave if she is fired or if it is just her show that is cancelled, but there’s gossip of a $69M Amero parachute in the Twitterverse, so nice work if you can get it.

We long said this: Kelly was not hired to lure away Fox News viewers (if that were the case, they would have put her on in her FNC time slot); she was taken away from Fox in the hopes that the dirty old men of Possum Hollar would shut off the TeeVee if she wasn’t on.

In the ratings game it isn’t always about improving your own number of viewers, it can also be about diminishing their number of viewers. If the $69M is true, it seems hardly worth it?

PS – in all fairness to this Scissorhead—and in case his/her bosses are reading this, I was pointed to an article in a UK publication with the details.

  1. Is this the pinnacle of the participation trophy meme? You don’t have to be effective at your job, and by the way, here’s a king’s ransom for just showing up.

    Here’s an old-timey phrase: Good riddance to bad rubbish.
    These pretty faces with empty heads behind them are an insult to thinking people. Granted, I suspect genuinely intelligent people didn’t follow her anyhow, but one less racist with airtime is fine by me.

    Go away, dumb lady!

    Poor Megyn thought she was still on Fox.


  4. Good riddance.
    A 3-Stooges noogie & a double poke to the eyes to NBC for taking her on in the first place. The “Jesus and Santa are white” snarling should have been (neon) red flags of racism. Where she came from was red flag enough. Talk about your Faux in a hen house.

    Compare and Contrast: Rachel Maddow makes $7 million a year, has a doctorate in political science, won 3 Emmys for News Discussion & Analysis AND likes to fish.

    She’s in that awkward grey area — too racist for NBC and not racist enough for Fox.

    Talk about throwing good money after bad…


  8. Nobody has yet tumbled to the fact there will NEVER be so much as a whiff of an an inadvertent crotch-shot on the teevee. Even if you believed in the depths of your brainpan that you saw something, you’re wrong! Obviously, there is a never-ending supply of dirty old white men.

    Is that $69 M Ameros, AND a ham sandwich and a road map? A Mama Cass ham sandwich, BTW?
