Megyn Kelly is ‘Not Ideological,’ Won’t Be Fed ‘Incoherent Tripe’

megyn kelly kelly file 5Politico profiles “red hot” Megyn Kelly and takes the temperature of both personal supporters of Kelly’s and vehement detractors of Fox News.

  • First Look Media’s Glenn Greenwald: “She has a lower tolerance for being fed incoherent tripe from her own side than the average cable news TV host.”
  • Fmr. Fox News contributor Jane Hall: “She clearly often has a point of view, but somehow she manages to show independence and be seen as someone who is not ideological and hitting the same talking points that you see on some of the other prime-time shows.”
  • MSNBC host Chris Matthews: “I think [the Rove incident] was the first big sign, at least to me, that she was going to be a journalist… that she was going to use journalistic standard in covering the election. I think that struck a lot of people.”
  • WJLA General Manager Bill Lord: “I think she’s tried to stay — as best you can in the Fox environment — pretty much in the middle of the political spectrum.”
  • The Loudest Voice in the Room author Gabe Sherman: “I think she wants to maintain her credibility so that when Roger [Ailes] is out of the picture at Fox, she could jump to CNN or another network. She doesn’t want to get marginalized as right wing.”

The Saturday Ticker: Beck, Meade, Williams

  • Glenn Beck will be a guest on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” tomorrow. The CEO of Mercury Radio Arts, and former Fox News host, will talk about where he plans to take his media empire next.

  • HLN’s Robin Meade gets guest co-hosts from the sports world for “Morning Express” next week. Former LA Laker Rick Fox will guest co-host Monday and Tuesday, while NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson is in on Wednesday.

  • NBC’s Brian Williams has been named to the New Jersey Hall of Fame class of 2014. “I accept with gratitude and humility,” Williams tells the Star-Ledger. “It is home for me. I was born at Exit 165 and raised at Exit 114. This is just a tremendous honor for me and my family.”
