Megyn Kelly has issued a warning to former Fox News star Chris Wallace that it is “too late to save CNN.”
Wallace, like many other hosts on CNN, is now fearing for his career at the doomed network.
Kelly warned that CNN is a lost cause because the network has “already told half the country that they hate them.”
Speaking during “The Megyn Kelly Show,” the host discussed the network’s future with her guest, CNN commentator Mary Katharine Ham.
Ham recently came clean and admitted she was “quiet suspended” by CNN for criticizing how the network handled the disgraced pervert Jeffrey Toobin.
“In 2015, I liked CNN a lot,” Kelly said.
“They’re trying to turn things around right now.
“People ask me all the time: ‘Do you think CNN can be saved?’
“Now they have new management and new ownership and I think a new commitment to try to win back some Republican viewers.
“Personally, I think it’s too late.
“They’ve already told half the country that they hate them.”
Ham said she liked CNN at first.
“It was a good time.
“I felt like we were presenting all the possible takes, including those from Trump-critical conservatives, which I was more on the side of, and Trump-favorable conservatives.”
“We were fighting the good fight,” Ham said before adding that then-network boss and one-time friend of Trump Jeff Zucker “was giving billions of dollars of free air time to Donald Trump.”
But Ham said after Trump’s upset win in 2016, Zucker decided that “now we have to be part of rectifying the situation.”
Ham said “the new folks” running CNN now “are trying to bring in people who understand this other part of the country that many people on air in national news media just don’t have contact with.”
