Murdoch’s Little Princess Retreats To The Hills – Amid Backlash Megyn Kelly Takes 1.5 Week Vacation…

Last night on Megyn Kelly’s Fox TV show she announced a 1.5 week vacation returning on 8/24.  Lil Miss stated she hadn’t taken a vacation in six months.  Of course the 8-day memorial day break, and 6-day July Fourth break, don’t count as vacation for the intense 4 day work-week schedules of a princess pundit, or something.

megyn kelly 2 rupert murdochHowever, given the scope of the fallout from Megyn’s intentional set-up of candidate Donald Trump, and the severity of the backlash therein, it’s not difficult to see why the outline of this NY Magazine article is essentially correct.

Unfortunately for Ms. Kelly, the reality of her position has slapped her in the face like a cold fish.

NY Mag […]  Having backed down to the GOP front-runner and all but sacrificed one of his biggest stars to appease the conservative base — a.k.a. Fox viewers — Ailes has set a dangerous precedent. The message is clear: Fox reports, but the audience decides.  (link)

LOL, only in the mind of a progressive publication would listening to your customer be considered “a dangerous precedent“; I digress.   Alas, egos the size of Princess Megyn’s need respite, from the fish.  And princesses never eat crow.

For those who have followed the story, which began weeks prior to the debate, the attack by Megyn Kelly was entirely predictable.   A full week before the debate itself, we warned of Kelly’s transparently obvious intentions toward Donald Trump – HERE July 30th.

Kelly actually had a plan to begin the attack on Monday August 3rd, three nights before the debate.  What she planned was to lay the groundwork for a sexist narrative and then follow up with the attack on debate night.  Kelly is nothing, if not predictable.

Somehow, Team Trump caught wind of the set-up, and while Mr. Trump was in Scotland his team cancelled the Monday appearance.  However, it is highly doubtful Trump actually knew the severity of what was planned.

Perhaps the cancellation contributed to the even more severe vitriol viewed by over 25 million debate watchers three nights later.  Everything about it was planned by Megyn, for Megyn – the center of her own condescendingly self-important universe.

Megyn Kelly DebateAs the days ticked down to the confrontation, the severity of her tone increased – the objective was brutally evident, again, in an interview with Ted Cruz. on the Monday Trump cancelled.  Again, we warned x 2.

Post Debate – When you get the cold fish slap, you have two decisions to make.

#1 You can: a.) Admit your intentions, b.) Ask for forgiveness, and c.) put forth your humility.

~ OR ~

#2 You have to surround yourself with sycophants, hide in your bunker, and refuse to take responsibility.

Kelly chose the latter.  Essentially removing the last vestiges of credibility, diminishing herself more, and broadcasting the transparency of guilt.  Public cold fish-slaps, which you try to hide, never end well – everyone sees them.

However, on the positive side, and thanks to the assistance from the go-to punditry (Dana “Baby Bush” Perino), Kelly and Co. used neon orange paint on the next tripwire.

In an effort to wipe away the remaining fish scales, Megyn and Perino set up the next Rupert pro-Bush strategy a little more obviously than last time. [ ie. the advancement of Ben Carson.]

Ben carsonOhio - Gov. KasichJeb-Bush

LOL, Carson, Kasich and Bush even sounds like a group of republican lawyers.

Now they will go all back-door on Trump by going with the “temperament” narrative.  The only acceptable Republican is one who comes bubble wrapped for safety.

Kaisch, Bush and the ever soft-spoken Carson will be sold as temperate and comparative candidates to the grossly vulgarian Trump.

It’s that reachy-over-the-aisle narrative, with an intellectual high-brow MSM twist.

Think: crust-less cucumber and mayonnaise sandwiches on wonder bread, along with a side of rice cakes and Perrier w/ lime.  Mmmm mmmm safe and delicious, swear.   Just ask George Will and Charles Krauthammer, they’ll tell you all about it.

Full disclosure.  I ate, well, sort of, one of those rice cakes once, just once.  Flippin’ thing tasted like I’d bitten into a Styrofoam coffee cup.  As far as palates go, it was profoundly typical -and brutally similar to- what I envision a professional republican would taste like.  Never again, and never since.

carly fiorinaOf course they’ve already got iCarly kick-started to take lead on the “Trump is Sexist” angle; and God please, I hope Trump has the opportunity in debate #2 to compare his immensely smart and successful daughter Ivanka, to the brutally inept and scripted talking point that calls herself Fiorina.

The narrative collapses when you think about Trump being so sexist he puts his daughter in charge of his Empire.

Actually, I shouldn’t publicly write that wish because I’ll just be giving a heads up to the target of it.  Oh well…. I was, after all, previously speaking of cold fish.

Nuf said.

Time for some sorbet:

Trump first family

        Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly will be at GOP debate in January

        Aug. 13– NEW YORK-Donald Trump and the other candidates for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination have not seen the last of Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly.

        FNC has another debate scheduled in January before the Iowa caucuses and Kelly, “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier and “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace will be moderating again, a representative for the channel confirmed.

        Like I said… Trump should tweet the petition link to his 3.7 MILLION followers and see what happens…

          Discouraging.

          The petition explains why M K is unsuitable as a moderator. Maybe it has to climb and Megyn has to apologize before Trump is going to evern re-consider. Trump has already told Fox he will only go on Fox & Friends and I think, maybe, Hannity. Trump knows they are keeping MeGYN in the debate to further their ratings like the first debate. Ruperty played that game with Trump too, boosting him up as a possible candidate only to have Megyn the Dog chomping at the bit to take him down. Megyn herself stated that debates can totally bring a candidate down (and the reverse, bring a candidate up). This is transparently obvious what “fun” means to her. A blood sport as Trump rightly called it. Princess Hag’s job to take down a candidate and boost one up? Trump has instincts and it was shown him what Megyn is.

          Megyn Kelly characterizes the Presidential selection process as “fun”, dismissing the millions of Americans that find it much more serious.

          no …. I would have to say, for Trump, to let it go, and chalk it up as a bad day, not carry it to, forever, the attack issue did not succeed, Trump got Fox-Ailes to cave before the network broke out into a full fledged Megyn Hatfield and Donald McCoy generational family feud tearing it asunder.

          The possibility is there for 3rd party, but right now, Trump is batting 1,000, and its Viva Las Vegas that the RINO’s get beat and Conservatives take over the Republican Party.

          Think of when Don Corleone dies and the heads of the 5 Families plot to take out Michael, but he turns the tables on them and ends up the Boss.

          RINO’s win if Trump does 3rd Party and Democrats win, Fox got out Foxed, and has their tails between their legs, Trump made peace and came back on Fox and Friends, and Hannity, Trump will be on Mark Levin tonight

    I think Sundance is psychic. This article didn’t just hit the nail on the head, it slammed it.

    When I tuned in this morning to my Fox internet home page (on the way to CTH), the first thing that caught my eye was Ben Carson’s (big) interview with Stewart Varney, then next was Greta’s (big) interview with Jeb Bush. I say “big” because they were both great interviews in beautiful settings and gave the candidates time to express themselves more than ever before. I was actually impressed by both candidates for a change.

    Then I arrived at CTH and saw this article written by Sundance regarding Fox putting Carson, Bush and Kasich in the limelight. Well, dang. I got suckered in by Fox temporarily but I’ve got Sundance to keep me informed of the readers/watchers manipulation going on at Fox. Unfortunately, the majority of those who probably got suckered in too, do not have access to Sundance’s wisdom.

    Thank you Sundance for a great article. It keeps me apprised as to when I’m being played like a danged violin.

      From the article:

      So why are we seeing a right wing backlash – against what used to be their favorite place for news?

      The presumptions again. I have NEVER watched Fox news. I do not have cable. I will not have cable. I do not have Fox on any favorites list. So – Bernie – my question would be: Why are you surprised at a conservative backlash? We don’t sit around waiting for anybody to tell us what to think, whether they be democrat or republican. Your own biases have so slanted your perspective, Bernie, that you probably actually believe that your setup questions and convenient self-answering is right on target.

      Hint: They’re not.

      Why are we seeing a segment of the Fox audience turning on Fox with the same kind of vitriol they usually reserve for the liberal media?

      Ooooh, let me think: maybe because that segment of Fox that is “turning on Fox” has finally figured out what those of us who never got our news from Fox knew – that Fox had its own personal/corporate musical news chairs going on.

      Just like there’s no diff between dems and rinos – there’s no real diff between Fox and CNN. it just takes different stuff to cast it in bold enough relief that those who believed Fox was “fair and balanced” finally noticed. Just a thought, Bernie.

      How do I “feel” about Bernie Goldberg, Kay? I don’t live by feelings and couldn’t care less about Bernie Goldberg. Don’t know who he is – probably because I’m not casting about for anybody to tell me what I’m hearing, what I’m seeing, and what I should think about it.

      I’ve always thought of hearing, seeing, and thinking as private activities and have no need for anybody’s paid mouthpiece to tell me how to do any of them.

        Didn’t mean to make you angry, Sharon. I like Goldberg and have respected his opinion since I read the first book he wrote after leaving CBS. You might enjoy them. He has a good sense of humor, too. In addition to his ground-breaking book Bias, Goldberg has written four other books on the media and American culture — Arrogance, 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America: (And Al Franken is #37), Crazies to the Left of Me, Wimps to the Right, and A Slobbering Love Affair, about the news media’s romance with Barack Obama.

        I’m a long-time follower of CTH – though I haven’t commented much – this site is second only to Drudge on my browser bar. I have been in awe of the wealth of information and the depth of investigation represented here – especially the material related to the BGI. I do understand the “tripwire” theory Sundance has laid out. And I too am more than disgusted by the GOPe’s machinations. But I’m not convinced that Trump is our savior and it disheartens me to see other worthy candidates being demeaned and dismissed here. As with any news source, FOX should be viewed with a degree of skepticism, but I think the constant bashing and ridicule has become tiresome and seems over-the-top and self-defeating.

        My best course of action is probably to avoid reading any of the articles about Trump or the Megyn-is-evil stuff. I sure won’t comment further about it, since it’s obvious my perspective is really not appreciated. But there’s plenty of other good reading to be found in the Treehouse. So I’ll be lurking…

        Cheers.

          May I clarify: I’m not angry. I don’t think Megyn is evil, and I certainly don’t think Trump is anybody’s savior. I think he’s a timely grenade and I would like to see the pin pulled.

          Any time other candidates present their positions in a convincing manner I expect they will be heard.

          Cruz has the stuff of info but doesn’t show much fight. I see nothing in him that makes me think he is ready to separate from the GOPe. All of the others have made it plain they will not cross the GOPe and that being the case, they will not represent us when the shouting’s over. They will be glad to represent the establishment politicians on both sides of the aisle and will have no choice because they will be in thrall to the GOP establishment.

          If other candidates are indeed “worthy” and Trump is such a disaster, they should soon be able to shove him aside and I would expect they will.

          There is indeed a lot of good reading in the Treehouse….and don’t feel alone about not having your perspective appreciated. You should see the emails that we (admins) get describing in detail what is amiss with ours! 😉

His pastor gave him a copy of the book, which helped convince him he could work hard enough to earn his GED.

    “Rice’s admiration was not without its caveats. “I would vote for him. I mean I’m not saying that he he would be my first choice. I like Donald Trump, you know, because he’s a different face, he doesn’t hold back.”

      Fox wants to use MeGYN and Trump in the second debate to boost ratings again. I say, no way! The only problem is they will give GOPe lots of air time to stir the fancy spiels and entrance GOPe voters. The only way to win at the second debate is to continue taking Fox ratings down until very few of the significant voters are watching.

      Maybe there’s a concurrent network show Trump can go on to take viewers away. He can do a charity drive or something. If the Oprah Show was still on network, Trump could have gone on it. Here’s a clip from a much younger Donald Trump on Oprah showing how much he loves America. He’s not in it to help the Clintonistas for certain!

There was only one other incident with a reporter who came at Trump for daring to expose Hussein’s birth certificate. The only other was Apprentice Brandy who was a Playboy but I sincerely think the Donald meant it as psychological flattery for Brandy. As in Megyn-Dirty-Mind-goes-there-with-Howard-Stern.

    “the Trump people are everywhere with literature and T-shirts and signing people up.”

    “People will pull over, go sign up. They’ll get 50 people in an hour and go to another town. That happens all over the state.”

    Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R), in an interview Thursday, said of Trump: “I think he’s got a real campaign here.”

      Y’know what? I think Trump could even take California!

      Not that our primary would matter, it’s too late; but in the General Election. There are a lot of people here who have a lot of anger, as they are constantly and continuously outvoted on everything that matters. It’s even worse when the corrupt courts won’t let referendums count.

      Now we have a larger-than-life theatrical Celebrity Billionaire who stands with and for We The People- well, that could be a landslide bigger than Reagan, and I say that with all due respect.

    She needs to be shut down. I have shut her off and she can take her side show on the road. Her husband is a big Hillary supporter, her BBF , Sheryl Sandberg is a Hillary supporter and her family are all Dems. So she now has pulled the curtain back and showed us all, who she supports.

    Her ego is so huge that it is hard to fathom how someone could love themselves as much as she does.

    I am happy to turn off the TV for that hr and not have to have her cackle, and scream in her man voice for 60 minutes. I hope she leaves and goes to CNN while she is on her mystery vacation.

      That’s just… just… beyoooootiful.

      Almost makes me want to do the Happy Dance of Unexpected Joy, but it’s a bit early. Also I’m too um, well-rounded. 😆

    Trump needs to throw down the gauntlet…….

    FOX needs to supply new and impartial moderators…….

    or I guarantee a third party run if I feel that the debates were not fair.

      I’m really sad that Brett was part of these debate shenanigans. But he’ll always have a place in my heart*, because he was the first interviewer who ever asked Obama a follow up question, and let him know that he wasn’t answering the question asked. (of course, he never got another interview with Obama)

      *and he has boyish good looks 🙂

        He also interviewed the security contractors that were at Benghazi – the ones that wrote 13 Hours. Great stuff.

            Hah! I noticed that resemblance too (uh-oh, maybe we’re giving our ages away… nah, hush!)

            I’m saddest about Bret, really. He’s the only one I had a fair amount of trust in, since he always did his homework and always tried to be objective. Now he’s left standing in the cratered burnt devastated remains of what once was a good reputation for fairness and honesty.

            I hope he realizes what he’s lost, and works hard to recover it; but it’ll be a very long time before I forget his part in this disgraceful affair. An old farmer once told me, “I’ll forgive, but I don’t ever forget.” Maybe he just got caught up in the locker-room atmosphere while they were planning out their attack? That’s what I think happened. It’s hard to stay objective when your bosses & co-workers, who are probably also your friends, are all jumping for joy just thinking of how they were going to trash Trump; he got lost in the excitement, and didn’t listen to his conscience. 😦

        FOX has a big credibility problem. What if SD had investigated Benghazi with the resources Baer has available? Think about it.
