Megyn Kelly Leaves NBC With $30 Million Payout

Four months after struggling "Today Show" Host Megyn Kelly shocked co-host Al Roker and their studio audience by suggesting on-air that wearing blackface in the context of a Halloween custom was perfectly acceptable behavior "where I grew up", the former Fox News prime-time star's departure from the "mainstream" network has finally been finalized.

According to a report by NBC News, Kelly has reached an agreement with the network on the terms of her departure whereby she will receiving another $30 million in compensation - the balance of her $69 million three-year contract.

"The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC," NBC said in a statement.

Though Kelly delivered a tearful on-air apology the following day, she never returned to the anchor's chair on the network's flagship daytime program, and her impending departure from the network was swiftly confirmed, along with speculation that, thanks to the iron-clad nature of her contract, she would likely walk away with a hefty sum.

She ran a talk/opinion show. They were only having a discussion, and she stated her opinion. She should have never been fired for it. NBC folks are idiots, and Kelly is the smart one.

Don't like her. But she was railroaded. The Whites always have to bow down. But the blacks can say whatever they want and still keep their job.
