ATLANTA, Georgia (The Adobo Chronicles®) – During an interview this week with Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, FOX news commentator Megyn Kelly declared she was an Independent, having voted for both Democrats and Republicans. During a phone interview with Glenn Beck, CNN anchor Don Lemon admitted he was a conservative.
Today, both news cable networks said they have had it with their star news anchors. They’re making a swap: Kelly moves to CNN and Lemon moves to FOX News.
In a joint statement, CNN and FOX said that they each wanted to be consistent with the politics and ideologies of their respective networks and that the swap is a move in the right direction.
In her programs, Kelly is known to ask tough questions of Republicans and is not afraid to call them out if she thought they were out of line or out of their mind.
Lemon, on the other hand, Lemon is famous for his ridiculous theories and antics about the news, including suggesting that the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was kidnapped by a higher power. Just last night, the openly-gay anchor opened his show by holding up the confederate flag and a sign that said “NIGGER,” in a failed attempt to try to stimulate discussion about news developments in South Carolina and the White House.
So, the next time you turn on to your favorite cable news program, don’t panic if you see an unfamiliar face. You are still tuned to CNN or FOX.
