Megyn Kelly said there was no compensation for CNN News challenging the credit rating because the network “already told half the country they hate it”.
“[In] On Friday’s podcast, Kelly said, “The Megan Kelly Show”, Which streams directly to SiriusXM.
Kelly told CNN commentator Mary Catherine Hamm, who recently claimed it was “hanging quietly” By the network for being criticized for Her dealings with the epic Jeffrey Tobinand that she was often watching CNN to prepare for hosting assignments at her network at the time, Fox News, when she presented the nightly show “The Kelly File.”
But she said the network “turned around” around that time and became very partisan.
“They’re trying to turn things around right now,” Kelly told Hamm. “People ask me all the time: Do you think CNN can be saved? Now they have new management and new ownership. [and] I think there’s a new commitment to trying to win back some Republican viewers.”
“Personally, I think it’s too late,” Kelly added. “They have already told half the country that they hate them.”
The Post has requested comment from CNN.
Hamm recalled that CNN was “fun” when she first arrived as a network commentator in 2016.
“It was a good time,” Hamm said of her initial experience at the network. “It felt like we were offering all the possible shots, including [those from] Conservatives critical of Trump, whom I have been more supportive of, and conservatives who are pro-Trump.”
“We were fighting a good fight,” Hamm recalls, adding Network President at the time, Jeff Zucker “She was giving billions of dollars in free airtime to Donald Trump.”
But after Trump won the 2016 presidential election, Zucker decided that “now we have to be a part of making it right,” Hamm said.
Hamm said that the network’s “new people” are “trying to bring in people who understand this other part of the country that not many people connect with live in the national news media.”
