Megyn Kelly Says FOX News Messaging Would be Different if Roger Ailes was Still Alive

“[Sean] Hannity says what he says, Lou Dobbs and Maria Bartiromo are over here, but then you’ve got Bret Baier and Martha [MacCallum],” Kelly said. “You’re getting different messaging hour-to-hour. And I think people are confused.”

Ex-Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly said her former network would be covering President Trump a little differently if Roger Ailes was still alive. The one-time Fox News chairman and CEO died in 2017.

Kelly appeared on The Dan Abrams Show on SiriusXM Thursday.

“[Sean] Hannity says what he says, Lou Dobbs and Maria Bartiromo are over here, but then you’ve got Bret Baier and Martha [MacCallum],” Kelly said. “You’re getting different messaging hour-to-hour. And I think people are confused.”

Abrams asked Kelly if Fox News would be calling Joe Biden the President-elect if Ailes were alive. “I don’t,” Kelly said. “I think they wouldn’t. Because Roger — maybe people do know this — Roger was much more conspiratorial than people really knew.”

Kelly believes that if the powerful late chief executive were running the show, President Donald Trump’s false position that the election was rigged would be represented not only during opinion programs, but during news hours as well.

After one season since its launch in March 2021, ViacomCBS’ Paramount+ has determined to cancel the 60 Minutes streaming spinoff, 60 Minutes+.

“We are proud of the team at 60 Minutes+ and of the stories they produced, which informed the audience about some of the most important issues of our time,” Paramount+ said in a statement.

“Their journalism was recognized with several awards, including a Gracie, National Headliner, and NABJ Salute to Excellence Award. The excellent work that has been done by the 60+ team will continue to be on Paramount+.”

The company is talking with 60 Minutes+ employees, who were notified of the decision, about potential positions across CBS, and intend on finding a home for content already filmed across CBS News platforms.

Pulling the plug on 60 minutes+ is a hit to CBS News who wants to get a new generation of consumers interested in the iconic 60 Minutes brand. The on-air staff of “60 Minutes+” consisted of Seth Doane, Wesley Lowery, Enrique Acevedo, and Laurie Segall.

Doctors Want a Covid Misinformation Tag on Joe Rogan’s Podcast

The “Open Letter to Spotify” comes from Rogan’s interview with Dr. Robert Malone, as they called out the podcaster for having someone compare pandemic policies to that of the Holocaust.

Members of the medical and scientific community are coming after podcaster Joe Rogan. 

Two hundred and seventy “scientists, medical professionals, professors, and science communicators” request Spotify add a misinformation policy to “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast.

The “Open Letter to Spotify” comes from Rogan’s interview with Dr. Robert Malone, as they called out the podcaster for having someone compare pandemic policies to that of the Holocaust. 

“By allowing the propagation of false and societally harmful assertions, Spotify is enabling its hosted media to damage public trust in scientific research and sow doubt in the credibility of data-driven guidance offered by medical professionals,” the letter states. 

“Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Joe Rogan has repeatedly spread misleading and false claims on his podcast, provoking distrust in science and medicine. He has discouraged vaccination in young people and children, incorrectly claimed that mRNA vaccines are ‘gene therapy,’ promoted off-label use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19 (contrary to FDA warnings), and spread a number of unsubstantiated conspiracy theories.”

YouTube removed Rogan’s interview with Malone, and Twitter suspended Malone’s account earlier this month for violating the social media outlet’s policy for posting Covid-19 misinformation.
