DC: Journalist Megyn Kelly claimed Thursday that the Oscars would get better ratings if they stopped making “political speeches” during the ceremony.
Kelly, the host of NBC’s “Megyn Kelly Today,” said that comedian Jimmy Kimmel shouldn’t be allowed to host future Academy Awards shows since he openly shows disdain for Republicans, Raw Story reported.
“If the Oscars want better ratings, they should really consider stopping the political speeches,” Kelly said during an episode of “Megyn Kelly Today.” “I think a lot of us don’t tune in to hear — get a lecture on politics. We’re looking to have a moment of escaping. We want to hear politics, we turn to cable news.” more
