'Nyet' To Megyn Kelly's First Sunday Night Show on NBC With Vladimir Putin

MEGYN KELLY TRAVELED ALL THE WAY TO ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA TO GET OUT-FOXED and out-witted by her celebrity interview with Vladimir Putin. Her intention was to use her star power newswoman status--- I now use that term loosely-- to get a big scoop on the imaginery Trump-Russian collusion,  and to use Putin to get back at President Trump for his past insults to her at last year's presidential debate.

Nice try, Megyn, but no cigar.

In spite of the spiked heels and coy, churlish smirks and sarcasm, it didn't happen.  Putin was not amused by her creative innuendos about Trump and continuing questions about Russia interfering in the 2016 presidental election.

"Do you even know what you're asking?" he asked seriously. What he didn't say but probably thinking,  "Don't you have anything better to do than beat this ridiculous dead horse again and again?"

It was a letdown. It was a non-news event.  It was over-hyped and underwhelming. She has become too much of the issue instead of letting the issues be the issues.

Megyn went to Russia with an axe to grind and showed little objectivity and professionalism as a serious journalist/interviewer seeking the truth. Instead she has become a celebrity gossip monger who brought back nothing new.

Maybe she will make it at NBC as a feature entertainer or a soft news celebrity-to-celebrity meet and greet personality with good hair and outfits that are edgy and only marginally professional.

But her show on Sunday was less than interesting in any of the above categories.  I guess, time will tell.  For now,  my  verdict is Nyet.  Better luck nyet time.

Another opinion.
