Megyn Kelly Leaving New York City After Letter Sent Around Her Kids School Targets White Kids

Conservative pundit Megyn Kelly said that she is removing her children from their prestigious New York private school and leaving the city after she discovered a letter circulating the school comparing white kids to “killer cops.”

Kelly made the announcement on her podcast this week. “The schools have always been far-left, which doesn’t align with my own ideology, but I didn’t really care, most of my friends are liberals, it’s fine. I come from a Democrat family, I’m not offended at all by the ideology, and I lean center-left on some things.”

Kelly read parts of the letter written by Nahliah Webber, executive director of the nonprofit Orleans Public Education Network, and posted on a blog titled “If You Really Want to Make a Difference in Black Lives, Change How You Teach White Kids.”

The letter went on to say that there is a “killer cop sitting in every school where white children learn.” The letter continued, “I am tired of white people reveling in their state-sanctioned depravity, snuffing out black life with no consequences.”

Kelly has two sons Thatcher and Edward and daughter Yardley. Kelly, who said she is also pulling her daughter out of her school, slammed Webber’s opinions.

“Which boy in my kid’s school is the future killer cop? Is it my boy? Which boy is it?” Kelly said. “Because I don’t happen to believe that they’re in there.”

Report: Layoffs of CNN+ Staffers Has Begun

Approximately 23 staffers in CNN’s Hudson Yards offices were notified that their positions were being eliminated.

It’s been nearly a month since CNN decided to pull the plug on its streaming service CNN+ and while many were hired to help with the production of the various shows, now they’re being laid off.

TV Newser reports that the cable news channel began laying off affected staffers on Tuesday. The outlet adds that there’s no concrete number of people who won’t be working at CNN.

However, approximately 23 staffers in CNN’s Hudson Yards offices were notified that their positions were being eliminated. Furthermore, another source confirmed to the outlet that layoffs had occurred. 

Despite laying off some staffers, the company is still trying to place those impacted CNN+ employees in other positions around CNN and Warner Bros. Discovery.

When the network announced it was pulling the plug, CNN Worldwide chairman and CEO Chris Licht said in an internal memo that they would continue to receive pay for 90 days and benefits along with helping them find opportunities within the company. 

“All CNN+ employees will continue to be paid and receive benefits for the next 90 days to explore opportunities at CNN, CNN Digital, and elsewhere in the Warner Bros. Discovery family,” Licht said.

Insider Editor Stands By Sexual Harassment Accusation Story on Elon Musk

The accusation was made by an unnamed source, a friend of the flight attendant, in the Business Insider story, but Carlson said the allegation fulfilled the outlet’s criteria for publishing.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is going on the offensive following the Insider report alleging the entrepreneur sexually harassed a flight attendant on a SpaceX corporate jet in 2016. 

He’s going after the media outlet, but Insider’s global editor-in-chief Nicholas Carlson is standing by his team’s reporting. 

The accusation was made by an unnamed source, a friend of the flight attendant, in the Business Insider story, but Carlson said the allegation fulfilled the outlet’s criteria for publishing. 

“Anytime you have a very powerful man and there are credible accusations that he’s done something wrong the way that he was accused of doing in this story,” Carlson said on CNN. “That’s absolutely and sort of obviously newsworthy.”

Musk touched on the fact that he has never been accused of anything, even during the MeToo movement, but the allegation surfaced as soon as he attempted to purchase Twitter to restore free speech. 

“They began brewing attacks of all kinds as soon as the Twitter acquisition was announced,” Musk tweeted Friday. “In my 30-year career, including the entire MeToo era, there’s nothing to report, but, as soon as I say I intend to restore free speech to Twitter & vote Republican, suddenly there is …”

Carlson stated Insider reporters asked Musk’s team for comment on the allegations before the Tesla CEO went to Twitter to offer his remarks. Furthermore, Carlson adds that the news media outlet has yet to face any legal matters due to the story. 

“I reached out to him personally a few times,” Carlson added. “[I] said come talk to us; we want to hear from you.” Musk declined Insider’s offer to grant him more time to respond.”

“We are prepared to defend the story vigorously. It’s the truth that we stand by our story, which is based on documents and interviews. It speaks for itself.”
