Forget Trump vs. Clinton. In some circles, the fateful drama is Megyn Kelly vs. Fox News. The cable star’s future is being debated with the same intensity as that Nov. 8 showdown.
Even The Wall Street Journal is on the case.
“Keeping Ms. Kelly is a priority for senior management, including Rupert Murdoch, chief executive of Fox News and co-executive chairman of its parent company, 21st Century Fox,” the Journal said.
“Asked if Ms. Kelly would stay at the channel, Mr. Murdoch said in an interview that she is important to the network and he hopes to get a contract signed ‘very soon,’ but noted, ‘it’s up to her.’”
The Journal says CNN and ABC are seen as most likely to make an “aggressive play” for Kelly, whose star rose amid battles with Donald Trump and, more recently, Newt Gingrich, who accused her of being “fascinated with sex.”
But the real war is going on at right-wing media outlets.
Wonder if Megyn Kelly will discuss this tonite? She’ll probably choke on it if she does. https://t.co/S1eaR3KXfq

I’m glad to see Fox News imploding. It’s almost as bad as the rest of the mainstream media. Especially Megyn Kelly. Good riddance.
