NBC deserves what they get.  They didn't trust Tamron Hall with her own show but they trusted this gal whose baggage preceded her, even before she got to the network.

 

It wasn't that they didn't trust Tamron, they just wanted a blonde white woman!  Then they paid her a chit load of cash to under perform.  In Corporate America, that's any day that ends in "y".

That seems especially stupid considering the fact that the highest rated daytime talk show host in the past 30 years was neither white, nor blonde.

It's where we are today.  What about Kelly did NBC think was worth canning 2 POC and paying her more than them combined?  What said "RATINGS BONANZA" when making the decision?  I'm not that familiar with Kelly so I'm looking to be educated here.

They thought she would bring over hordes of Faux News fans to Today. That's my guess.

 

LOL FAIL. They were too busy watching FN, the NRA channel or Conspiracy Theories R Us.

Yes, NBC had hoped MK would bring Faux News fans to their network.  However, at the same time NBC News was busy trying to make her happen, Faux News and even the president were warning their audiences not to trust mainstream media outlets...such as NBC.

 

Subsequently, hiring MK away from Faux proved to be an expensive ($69 million) folly, which Lack (IMO) would be wise to end, and end now.

 

Seriously, why are we still negotiating how to handle this, Andy?  She's become an embarrassment AND a liability to your operation, much like Matt Lauer.  Pay off the remainder of her contract and Let. Her. Go.

The truth is, MK, and FNC, appeal strictly to an older, white, conservative viewership that's growing older, whiter and more conservative by the minute.  Believing that she would ever be able to attract and retain a significant portion of the desired 18-34 female demographic was horrendously short-sighted on Lack's, and NBC's, part.

 

But, more than that, the major media outlets need to look at MK's fall on NBC as a warning: courting these conservative-leaning "journalists" and other personalities as a way of bringing Trump's base under their tent will never end well.  Sooner or later, these individuals always cause their own undoings, simply because they don't know how to get out of their own, outdated, narrow-minded ways.  Subsequently, their inability to recognize and curb their basest, most self-destructive instincts turns them into little more than expensive damaged goods, which their bosses will have to pay through their respective and collective noses to dump.

 

Honestly, just let the MK's of today go back to their Faux News and fringe websites where they belong.

ITA with this.   I also echo all the posts that stated that NBC hoped to catch some stray FauxNews viewers, especially the alleged disaffected white female viewer who they believed would follow MK out the door leading to NBC.  It seems that those viewers stayed with FauxNews or not but they certainly did not follow MK to NBC.

 

Now it looks as though NBC better be prepared to pay through the nose to shake off MK.

Kelly was part of a push by Andrew Lack to get right wing voices out in the open on NBC and MSNBC. He was also pushing to replace most of the liberal shows on MSNBC with the likes of Hugh Hewitt, and supposedly resented that they were popular. 

 

I'm just sorry that she's likely become a martyr, which is unearned.
