NBC in ‘total panic’ as Megyn Kelly attracts only old white people after firing popular black host Tamron Hall

NBC executives are concerned that Megyn Kelly’s forthcoming morning show will not pull in ratings with younger people and non-whites after the network fired a popular black host, Tamron Hall, to make room for the former Fox News star.

The Daily Beast reported on Wednesday that the performance of Megyn Kelly’s Sunday night program has left executives in a “total panic” about her morning show, which will debut on Sept. 25. The network made room for Kelly by axing the 9 a.m. hour of the longrunning Today Show.

“A lot of people were watching the [Sunday] magazine show to try to get a sense of her appeal to the daytime demographic and a sense of how she would be outside of the Fox environment,” one insider told The Daily Beast. “Fox News skews very male… I always tend to think of her as more of a guy’s girl than a girl’s girl… It’s extremely challenging, and I’m not sure Megyn’s personality really connects with women.”

According to television news analyst Andrew Tyndall, “The Sunday show laid such an egg that any claims that she had automatic star power, to get people in the door to see what she was doing, have been disavowed… The stardom of the celebrity anchor was a phenomenon of the 1980s back when [flamboyant ABC News president] Roone Arledge was around. In this day and age, the shows make the anchors, not the other way around.”

In the meantime, Hall is planning a daytime talk show with the backing of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. She has also hosted a crime show on the Discovery Channel since leaving NBC.

Following Hall’s exit from NBC, the National Association of Black Journalists accusedthe network of “whitewashing” its on-air talent.

“The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) is saddened by Tamron Hall’s departure from NBC. She broke ground as the first black female Today show cohost and was enjoying ratings success alongside Al Roker during the show’s third hour of programming,” a statement from the NABJ said at the time. “NBC has been a leader for diversity in broadcasting, but recent reports that Hall and Roker will be replaced by former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly are being seen by industry professionals as whitewashing.”

NBC Whitewashing Today Show?

The National Association of Black Journalists is decidedly unhappy about Tamron Hall being replaced by Meghan Kelly on NBC’s 9 AM “Today” Show. Tamron decided to part ways with the Network (hope she has a cushy deal with another Network). Meghan isn’t exactly loved in the Progressive world, but hopefully getting her away from a cabal of racists and papists at Faux News will affect her world view, and educate her about realities.I mean – Meghan…Santa Claus is a fable…Which means he can be any color, not just white.

Exit By First Black Female ‘Today’ Show Co-Host Called ‘Whitewashing’ By Journalists’ Group

Tamron Hall will reportedly be replaced by Megyn Kelly, who has “a well-documented history of offensive remarks.”

The “Today” show is facing a shake-up that has some raising eyebrows.

Last month, NBC revealed plans to bring former Fox News host Megyn Kelly into its morning lineup, reportedly bumping co-hosts Tamron Hall and Al Roker from the 9 a.m. slot. On Wednesday, NBC announced that Hall would be leaving the network after three years as a co-host on the show. She’d surprised her colleagues by rejecting a multimillion-dollar deal amid the hour’s healthy ratings; according to rumor, she’d found being replaced by Kelly offensive and hurtful.

The National Association of Black Journalists, however, has made its thoughts on the issue clear. In a statement released this week, the organization stated it was “saddened” by Hall’s departure and said Kelly’s move to the 9 a.m. hour is “being seen by industry professionals as whitewashing.”

Hall had been the show’s first black female co-host.

“Kelly has a well-documented history of offensive remarks regarding people of color,” the organization stated, giving the example of Kelly stating that Michelle Obama’s 2015 commencement address at Tuskegee University pandered to “a culture of victimization.”

(Other examples abound: Kelly cast doubt on the significance of blatantly racist emails sent within the Ferguson, Missouri, police department, defended a Baltimore officer involved in the death of Freddie Gray, and called the black teen manhandled at a pool party by Texas police “no saint.”)

Some viewers have also expressed disappointment at the “Today” show shake-up.

In a statement regarding her decision, Hall said she was “grateful” for her 10 years at the network, but also “very excited about the next chapter” in her career. “To all my great colleagues, I will miss you and I will be rooting for you,” she said.

Calling her an “exceptional journalist,” NBC said in a statement of its own, “We are disappointed that she has chosen to leave, but we wish her all the best.”

“Not in My House” Tamron Hall Smackdown of Republican Jim Carney

Damn! Don’t bring this crap into MY House!

MSNBC host Tamron Hall whups Rethugy rear end in this clip.

MSNBC’s Tamron Hall handily shut down guest Tim Carney on Friday, in an exchange so fiery that she immediately began trending on Twitter.

Hall asked Carney about Mitt Romney’s testy reaction to a reporter asking about marijuana on Thursday. Before addressing the question, he alleged that she and the rest of the media were focusing too much attention on the candidate’s past — including his bullying of two classmates in high school.

“What you’re doing here is a typical media trick,” Carney charged. “You hype up a story and justify the second-day coverage of the story.”

That set Hall off. She began to tell him that he didn’t have to “answer a single question” she asked or “accept the invitation to come on” and speak. Carney tried to interject, but she told him, “You’re kind of in my house,” and proceeded to smack him down for over a minute.

“You’re not gonna come on and insult me, you’re not gonna come on and insult the network when you knew what we were gonna talk about,” she concluded. “Done.” With that, she cut to another guest.

Hall immediately became a trending topic on Twitter, as people reacted to the segment. Viewers called her a “badass” and a “hero,” and said that she “schooled,” “filleted,” “checked” and “ripped a layer of skin off” Carney.

“Not in my House”…Indeed. Baby – you can have a pair of the BTx3, Made in America by Union labor, steel toed, Size 13 Brogans…

Anytime you want!
