Don't call us, we'll call you.

TV news executives are not seeing a bidding war for Fox News star Megyn Kelly

Kelly is said to have not made up her mind about staying with Fox News beyond the end of her contract in July, even with an offer of more than $20 million a year to stay, which would put her in the same income bracket as NBC’s “Today” co-anchor Matt Lauer.

So far no other networks have offered to top Fox’s figure, according to network news executives and agents familiar with the talks and who were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. A spokesperson for Creative Artists Agency, which represents Kelly, declined to comment on her contract negotiations.

Looks like she's toxic.

Just like the Beast.

Bannon predicts:

"Bannon also compared himself to "Darth Vader" and Thomas Cromwell ("Darkness is good") and criticized the "media bubble," including Fox News, for incorrectly predicting Clinton would win the election. He then suggested the Rupert Murdoch-owned network will respond by shifting away from conservative personalities.

"They got it more wrong than anybody," Bannon said. "Rupert is a globalist and never understood Trump. To him, Trump is a radical. Now they'll go centrist and build the network around Megyn Kelly.""

Kelly and her agent are doing some wishful thinking. As far as I can recall, not one Fox News superstar has made a successful transition to MSM superstar. The MSM just doesn't like or trust them so they won't hire them [superstars I mean].

This is just Bloody Megyn planting stories to try and run up her price.

They are over paying her for $20 Million.
