Execs Are PISSED Megyn Kelly Is Making More Than NBC Vets For Her Flimsy Talk Show! See Why She's Being Called A '$100 Million Mistake'!

no title

Megyn Kelly knows the art of the deal.

Earlier this year, it was rumored that the former Fox News anchor was being paid $18 million for her new daytime gig at NBC.

But now the host's real salary has reportedly been leaked by DailyMailTV, and network executives are apparently furious over the "obscene" paycheck Kelly is getting for her not-so-hot Today show hour!

According to employees who were not involved in her hiring, Kelly is raking in a healthy $69 million over the next three years for her role at NBC.

That staggering figure — $23 million a year — has senior execs feeling particularly salty because it surpasses the salaries of the network's veteran stars. One high-ranking official said:

no title

Despite the litany of accusations made against him, Bill O'Reilly has no trouble sleeping at night!

The former host of The O'Reilly Factor appeared on TODAY six months after being ousted at Fox News, where he called the sexual harassment charges made against him nothing but a "political and financial hit job."

Sitting down with Matt Lauer, the political pundit denied ever having been accused of misconduct against women — until he was faced with the claims that ended his cable news career. He insisted:

"Not in 42 years. In 42 years, I've been in this business. I worked with 12 companies. Not one time did I have any interaction with HR, any complaints filed against me."

Earlier this year, it was reported that five women were paid a settlement of $13 million by the network for agreeing not to file lawsuits or speak publicly about the allegations against O'Reilly.

But the conservative commentator claims he knows nothing about Fox's "business decision" in paying off his accusers. He continued:

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpHillary ClintonBookzMatt Lauer

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton continues to untangle her devastating election loss to Donald Trump last year.

In her first live interview since November, the Democratic nominee sat down with Matt Lauer (who she openly criticizes in her memoir) and Savannah Guthrie on the TODAY show to discuss her new book What Happened and dissect the factors that cost her the White House.

At the top of the list is former FBI Director James Comey, whose "unprecedented actions" of telling lawmakers that he was reopening an investigation into Hillary's private email server just days before Election Day seriously affected her campaign momentum.

The longtime politician said:

"I thought, what is he doing? The investigation is closed. I knew there was no new information. And then it became clear. This was not necessary … Absent that, I believe and I think the evidence shows, I would have won."

On accepting the fact that Trump is now POTUS, Hillary admitted:

"I respect the fact that he is the president. I just wish he were the president for all Americans. I wish he was not engaging in a lot of the scapegoating and behavior in office that I think is bad for this county."

Hear, hear.
