The most frustrating aspect of watching NBC News pay out many millions of dollars to "Today" host Megyn Kelly in order to get her out the door after her comments suggesting it was fine for white people to don blackface makeup, is how utterly predictable this all was. The fact Kelly has remarkably racist attitudes, even by conservative pundit standards, wasn't some kind of great mystery. She made her way up the food chain at Fox News by engaging in blunt racial demagoguery, portraying anti-racist protesters as scary "thugs" and characterizing any victim of racist violence as somehow deserving of it — even when the victims were innocent children attending pool parties.

NBC Today host Megyn Kelly said on Thursday that ABC host Jimmy Kimmel shouldn't be allowed to host the Oscars because of his comments about Republicans.
Megyn Kelly made an impassioned plea for Americans to be more courteous to one another, during the third hour of the "Today" show on Wednesday. It was the third morning in a row that the NBC News host had raised the topic of civility after a Virginia restaurant declined to serve White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over the weekend because of the supporting role she plays in the "inhumane and unethical" Trump administration.
As she transitioned from the highly-rated Fox News primetime line-up to mornings at NBC News, Megyn Kelly made many not-so-subtle attempts to re-brand herself as a hard-hitting journalist who was above the fray of partisan politics. “The truth is, I am kind of done with politics for now,” the political commentator infamously said on the premiere episode of "Megyn Kelly TODAY" back in September.
