NBC Ain’t Shit: Megyn Kelly to Replace Only 2 Black Folks* on Today Show

In their groveling assent to the “people of the country who are so forgotten”—you know, real Americans—NBC is reportedly contributing its own special brand of self-interested racism to the culture by keeping daytime TV and news as white as it wanna be.


You would have thought, after the MSNBC debacle when the network tried (and failed) to shut down the indomitable Melissa Harris-Perry in order to elevate disgraced journalist Brian Williams, that they would’ve learned.

Yet NBC News is at it again by bringing the woman who swears that both Santa and Jesus are white, Megyn Kelly, over to daytime to knock Al Roker and Tamron Hall’s show off the air.

The New York Post reports (yes, it’s a rag, but they’ve been right more than a few times), NBC is canceling the third hour of Today to make way for Kelly. A source told the paper that she will either take over the 9 a.m. hour from Hall and Roker or will replace Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford.

But the same source says that if Kelly “takes over Hoda and Kathie Lee’s 10 a.m. hour, they will move to the 9 a.m. hour,” which means the black folks are out. Again.


This even though Roker just tweeted this week that the ratings for the show are through the roof.

The Post reports that Hall is leaving NBC for greener pastures next month (wonder why?), and Kelly starts in September.


Alas, whiteness.

*OK, maybe not the only two, but the biggest, to be sure.

I don’t know how many times I have to say this; Megyn Kelly is a rancid, racist bitch who was perfectly at home with Faux News. She’s not a real journalist and she only bucked the Faux party line when it was some shit that benefitted her personally.

What the hell is she going to do on NBC spend another 40 something segments complaining about the New Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter?

Is there anything to do with the shitty mainstream media that isn’t trash? I think not.

I’ll stick to Democracy Now and other independent media sources.
