Megyn Kelly Returns to Fox, as a Guest on Tucker;
Talks NBC's Sexual Assault Problem

I imagine this is the first step in trying to re-ingratiate herself to FoxNews' audience.

I'm not thrilled about it myself.

She doesn't break any news, but she is an ex-NBC employee questioning the company of covering up for Harvey Weinstein in order to protect Matt Lauer. She insists that NBC needs to hire an "outside investigator" to look into this.

I think that's just more cover for a misbehaving corporation. Even if you hire an external investigator, you're paying the bills for it, and the investigator knows that.

The investigator knows he won't be hired by other companies if he finds too much fault with his client. He can find some small amount of fault, but it must be isolated to a few people, and even there, it must be found to be mostly a matter of appearances or lack of proper due diligence.

Nothing deliberate or willful.

That's what CBS' "outside investigators" found in the RatherGate case. Just what their paymasters wanted, as it coincidentally turns out.

The "outside investigation" into RatherGate pretended doubt as to whether the supposed Bush documents were forged. They were. Buried in the footnotes of the report, their own expert says that the fonts displayed in that document simply did not exist in 1972 and would not exist until the nineties.

The external investigator allowed this fact into a footnote, but was resolute about not letting it effect their conclusions.

Their bought-and-paid-for conclusion was -- as CBS wanted -- "some mistakes were made" but who knows what's real and what's forged so let's drop it and MoveOn.org.

Why NBC's hired investigator would be any tougher on the people signing the checks than CBS' investigator eludes me.

As they mention in the interview, a feminist group is calling on the DNC to cancel its upcoming debate -- hosted by MSNBC -- until NBC demonstrates that it takes sexual harassment and sexual assault seriously.

“The DNC needs to make it clear that they support survivors of sexual abuse and cancel the upcoming 2020 Democratic presidential primary debate on MSNBC until Comcast and NBC News take clear steps to clean up the toxic culture that exists across their networks,” Shaunna Thomas, the co-founder and executive director of UltraViolet Action, said in a statement on Tuesday.

Also, Megyn Kelly herself goes very soft on the question of Anderson Cooper's and Don Lemon's biased debate questions.

Seems she knows who might be signing her future paychecks, too.

That video below. And a video of Chris Hayes (an employee of MSNBC) talking about NBC's cover-up culture.
