NBC stunned by how far Megyn Kelly went with Fonda attack

Megyn Kelly got approval from higher-ups at NBC before launching her hair-raising attack on Jane Fonda, Page Six has learned — but we’re told that prominent members of the organization were then stunned by how far the broadside went.

Peacock Network insiders fear that the take-down — in which Kelly dredged up Fonda’s “Hanoi Jane” episode to argue that the actress was in no position to “say what’s offensive” — will make it even harder for Kelly to book celebrity guests on her show in case they suffer the same fate…

“The problem is that nobody at NBC is controlling Megyn. They paid her more than $20 million to host the 9 a.m. show, and she’s been given too much power. But the fact remains: You can’t say those things, or be so aggressive, on morning TV,” said an insider. “Plus, Megyn was already having trouble booking celebrities — so how is she ever going to book other stars if they disagree and she later goes on air later and trashes them?”
