Trump Meets with Megyn Kelly

Fox News has a problem. Their biggest star is feuding with the front runner for the Republican nomination.

When your revenues are based on attracting Republican viewers (by giving them the news they want to hear), and your biggest star does not get along with the biggest Republican star, you have to do something about that. Dollars and cents always Trump (if you'll pardon the pun) all other matters.

So, yesterday a series of meetings were set up, including a crucial meeting between Trump and Kelly. The New York Times has the details.

I still think Fox News is hoping that Trump doesn't win it, but they have to cover themselves in case he does. They can't afford to have another channel come along on their right, offering even less critical pro-Republican news. They have the monopoly right now. That's worth A LOT of money.
