Megyn Kelly revealed she almost made this career-killing mistake

Megyn Kelly left Fox News in 2017.

But no one knew the real story until now.

And Megyn Kelly revealed she almost made this career-killing mistake.

The launch of the CNN+ streaming service is one of the biggest disasters in media history.

Reports surfaced that fewer than 10,000 viewers use the platform at any given time.

Megyn Kelly appeared on the Clay Travis and Buck Sexton show, where the topic of CNN+ came up.

Kelly blasted the idea that CNN executives thought people would pay money to watch the same hosts who no one watches for free.

“Who is the moron at CNN who actually thought, ‘you know what we need with our ratings in the toilet?’ More of us. We need more CNN,” Kelly stated.

Sexton mocked CNN, claiming the network could unload the streaming service for ten bucks.

“I do love all of the jokes about how, while Elon [Musk] is offering to buy Twitter for tens of billions, there are lots of people out there right now who are willing to buy CNN+ for tens of dollars,” Sexton added.

Kelly then discussed how Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace jumped to CNN+ for big money despite the fact that he hosted the last-place Sunday morning interview program.

“He was in last place every week, every year, every month. He was always in last, and they still paid him,” Kelly explained.

CNN+ was the brainchild of disgraced former CNN network President Jeff Zucker.

Kelly told Sexton that before she left Fox News for NBC, Zucker made her a “huge” contract offer.

“I considered going to CNN. CNN made me a huge offer. Huge,” Kelly told Sexton.

Kelly told Sexton that she rejected CNN’s offer because she knew that Fox News viewers would not follow her there, and that CNN’s left-wing viewers would never accept her.

“I said no, Buck, because I knew: who is my fanbase going to be over there? I knew who my fans were and I knew that my Fox viewers were not going to follow me to CNN and that the CNN viewers were going to hate my guts,” Kelly concluded.

Ironically, Kelly ended up making that very mistake when she accepted NBC’s three-year, $69 million contract.

Kelly’s Sunday night magazine show suffered from low ratings, as Fox News viewers ignored her show and NBC’s left-wing audience rejected her, viewing her as the Fox News host.
