NBC host Megyn Kelly got a round of applause at an inopportune time Tuesday when her audience clapped for a story she told of sending a gift to Charlie Rose even though she was angry with him.
Kelly addressed the sexual harassment allegations against Rose, the longtime television journalist, at the outset of "Megyn Kelly Today." Rose has been suspended by CBS, PBS and Bloomberg after the Washington Post reported on eight women who accused him of rampant sexual misconduct between the early 1990s and 2011.
Kelly then told her audience about a personal exchange she had with Rose, who she called a friend, that she called indicative of the "underlying dynamic" between men and women in the workplace.
Kelly said she asked Rose to emcee her first book event for Settle For More last year and found it upsetting because of Rose's questioning about her sexual harassment allegations against late Fox News chief Roger Ailes.
"It was supposed to be a celebratory event, discussing the full scope of the book, which is about my life and my career and the lessons learned. Instead, the exchange felt to me like a cross-examination focused on one issue, the sexual harassment allegations against Roger Ailes," Kelly said, with a hint of anger. "Allegations Ailes denied, but which I know are true because I lived it. I felt defensive in the exchange with Charlie and wound up angry about how he handled my book event."
The kicker? Kelly said, "You know what I did? I sent him a bottle of wine and a thank-you note."
It was supposed to be the somewhat shameful end of a story of acting subservient to a male colleague, but the audience applauded, and Kelly seemed miffed.
"No, no," she said. "But I'm making a different point … The reason I sent him the wine and the thank-you note is that I believed it was better to be nice."
Liberal comedian Chelsea Handler wants to see President Donald Trump "brought down" in handcuffs and believes "a lot of people want him to be in prison."
In a CNN special report on late-night comedy in the age of Trump, Handler blasted Trump as she typically does on her Netflix program. In the brief segment dedicated to Handler, CNN’s Brian Stelter asked about her "mission."
"Would you say you're on a mission to take him down?" Stelter asked.
"I would like to see him taken down, brought down to the ground, preferably in handcuffs," Handler said. "I want him to be in prison, I think a lot of people want him to be in prison."
This is not the first time that Handler has called for Trump or members of the White House to be imprisoned. In July, she also said she wanted to see him in prison.
The father of LiAngelo Ball, one of the UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China, appeared in a "interesting" and lengthy interview on Monday night where he attempted to explain why he did not thank President Donald Trump for helping his son avoid jail time in China.
Trump said he talked to Chinese President Xi during his trip to Asia to help LiAngelo, along with fellow UCLA freshman basketball players Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, after the trio was arrested Nov. 8 for shoplifting designer sunglasses.
LaVar Ball joined CNN’s Chris Cuomo to talk about his comments towards the president, and why he felt Trump did not deserve to be thanked for talking to Xi and ensuring the UCLA players returned home from China.
Charlie Rose’s CBS News career came to an unceremonious end Tuesday when the network fired him over allegations of sexual harassment.
Rose’s departure marks the downfall of one of television’s most venerable journalists and a major blow to CBS News, which enjoyed its greatest success ever in the morning thanks to “CBS This Morning,” which was built around Rose and his co-anchors Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell in 2012.
“CBS News terminates Charlie Rose following allegations of sexual misconduct. “There is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace,” says CBS News President David Rhodes”
Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances.”
Clearly unabashed, an elderly congressman has been filmed reading Playboy magazine on a flight to Washington.
Maybe it was for research purposes but it must surely be a touch embarrassing for 81-year-old John Conyers, who is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
The headline of the story on one website, The Michigan View, refers to 'Mr Smut goes to Washington'.
The Detroit Democratic congressman was on a plane headed to the capital when a fellow passenger filmed him flicking through pages of the magazine.
The video and pictures were first posted on the Facebook page of the former Pulitzer Prize winner Charlie LeDuff.
Gazing over the August issue of Playboy, Mr Conyer lingered over an article titled 'La Chatte' by Maureen Gibbon.
Mr Conyers is currently the second-longest serving incumbent member of the House and in January 2009 he led the House Committee on the Judiciary's release called Reining In The Imperial Presidency: Lessons And Recommendations Relating To The Presidency of George W. Bush.
It was a 486-page report detailing alleged abuses of power that occurred during the Bush administration, and a comprehensive set of recommendations to prevent recurrence.
Mr Conyers introduced a bill to set up a 'truth commission' panel to investigate alleged policy abuses of the Bush administration.
One of the rules when attempting to pick a fight with somebody, know your limits, and also think about what limits you can push them to as well before they finally snap.
Apparently, this girl never got that memo. Watch as she refuses to stop yelling in this man's face and hitting him before he finally snaps and lays her out cold.
The University of Minnesota-Morris has threatened a student radio show with cancellation after one of the hosts used the word “tranny” on-air, with campus officials offering several shifting reasons for pulling the show from the airwaves.
Pure class was simply radiating from MSNBC hostess Kasie Hunt on Monday, when she said with a smile that the attack Kentucky Senator Rand Paul suffered is one of her favorite stories.
You’ll recall that Paul, a favorite of many Libertarians and Republicans, was attacked from behind by his neighbor, Rene Boucher, while the senator was working on his lawn. The attack resulted in five fractured ribs and a perforated lung.
According to Boucher’s lawyer, he attacked Paul because of a disagreement over a “landscaping dispute,” and went so far as to plead “not guilty” to the assault charge. However, Paul’s neighbors — and especially Paul — have cast doubts on Boucher’s claim, and the belief that the attack was politically motivated has been widely circulated. Boucher’s claim that it was over lawn care also seems suspect, seeing as how he could face serious time in prison should the attack have been the result of Paul’s decisions in his duties as a senator.
But despite the fact that Paul has been both physically attacked while doing yard work, and shot at while practicing baseball, MSNBC’s Hunt still finds this amusing enough for this to be her favorite story.
“New details today on the incident that left Senator Rand Paul with six broken ribs,” Hunt says. “This might be one of my favorite stories.”
Dramatic video has captured a bright mystery object flashing across the sky at Heathrow Airport seconds before a plane came into land.
Extraordinary footage shows the fast-moving bright object dart above houses near the airport before appearing to burn up in the atmosphere.
Just seconds later a huge jet is seen preparing to land at the hub.
Aviation website Airlive shared footage of the incident which it said was captured on its live camera feed at Heathrow.
The website described the illuminating bulk as a shooting star but a social media user argued it was more likely to be a meteorite.

Bizarre footage has captured a disgruntled Domino's Pizza customer paying for a £25 meal using just 2p coins.
Billy Martin, 23, dumped 1,287 coppers - totalling £25.74 - on the counter of his local takeaway branch because of an argument over an outstanding payment.
Billy said he decided to pay in coppers because the firm made him "feel like a criminal" when they chased him over an order.
The dad-of-one, from Tamworth, ordered a medium cheese and tomato pizza, mighty meat stuffed crust, potato wedges and a Fanta last Thursday but did not make a payment when it was delivered.
Billy says a Domino's driver dropped the meal off but left before he had a chance to give him the money, so he assumed the online order had automatically taken payment from his bank card.

Two Detroit Police officers are off the streets and a supervisor is removed from special operations after a botched drug raid.
SCHWEIZER: “Well, I have to say upfront, I have not met him. I don’t know him. But, what I understand by looking at legal documents involving this case. This guy was an insider’s insider. He was being paid by the Russian company $50,000 a month to serve as a lobbyist. And in the legal filings, what you find is his job was to basically carry the flag for this entity in Washington, D.C. And that job included setting up meetings with high ranking administration officials.
This would have been the Obama Administration. People on Capitol Hill. And other elite influence, you know, makers. So, he was working in a very, very high level. And what has leaked out seems to indicate he has got a lot of information that relates specifically to uranium one. So, it’s going to be very exciting and I think it’s important to point out, judge, also, remember, we already have a foreign government official saying that involving uranium one that he and his fellow government employees were extorted by the Clintons then senator Hillary Clinton.
This comes from the head of their atomic agency saying that Senator Clinton refused to meet with officials unless and until they granted uranium concessions to ended up giving more than $100 million to the Clinton Foundation. So we have got that testimony. We have got this new witness coming out. It’s going to get very interesting here in the weeks ahead.
Exclusive details have emerged on the early morning attack against Border Patrol agents that left one agent dead and another hospitalized in serious condition on November, 19 2017. Breitbart Texas first broke the news of the death and injuries and now the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) says that their agents on the ground have stated that the agents were tracking a group of illegal aliens who then beat the agents with rocks until one was killed and the other hospitalized.
Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd, also president of the NBPC, stated, “What we know is that Border Patrol Agent Rogilio Martinez appears to have been ambushed by a group of illegal aliens whom he was tracking. Our agents’ reports from the ground say that he was struck in the head multiple times with a rock or rocks.”
Agent Judd continued, “The other agent arrived on scene a short time later and was also ambushed and struck in the head with what is believed to have been a rock or rocks. These disgusting acts and complete disregard for human life need to stop immediately. Family members of slain Agent Martinez will never get to see him come home again all because we have failed to secure our borders from such criminals.”
Shortly after Breitbart Texas broke the news of the incident, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirmed that one Border Patrol agent was dead and another hospitalized in serious condition.

Charles Manson, the cult leader of the Manson family who masterminded the Tate-LaBianca killings of 1969 and one of the most reviled and fascinating figures in American pop culture, died Sunday night, CBS Los Angeles reports. He was 83. Manson had been rushed to a Bakersfield, California hospital from Corcoran State Prison earlier this month for an undisclosed medical issue.
Manson died of natural causes at Kern County hospital, according to a California Department of Corrections statement.
A career criminal, amateur musician, enigmatic cult leader and unrepentant racist, Manson became synonymous with the dark underbelly and ominous end of the Sixties. The two-day killing spree he orchestrated in August 1969 left seven people dead and, as legend has it, sprang from his mad interpretation of the Beatles' White Album – specifically the song "Helter Skelter" – which he believed foretold a coming apocalyptic race war.
On August 9th, 1969, tired of waiting for that war to break out, Manson sent four members of his so-called Family to a house on Cielo Drive in Los Angeles with the order to "totally destroy everyone in [it], as gruesome as you can." They killed the eight-and-a-half-month pregnant actress Sharon Tate, 26, wife of director Roman Polanski; celebrity hairstylist Jay Sebring, 35; screenwriter Voytek Frykowski, 32; heiress to the Folger's coffee fortune Abigail Folger, 25; and 18-year-old bystander Steven Earl Parent. The next night, Manson ordered the crew, with one additional member, to a different home on Waverly Drive, where grocery-store-chain owner Leno LaBianca, 44, and his wife, Rosemary, 38, were stabbed to death. At both houses, the culprits left words like "rise," "piggies" and "helter skelter" scrawled in blood.

Sergeant Rafael Souza had walked into the business 40km outside the city of São Paulo, Brazil, with his wife and child to buy medicine when the two men burst in wearing hoods and wielding guns.
One of the men - Jefferson Alves, 24 - then reportedly pointed his weapon at Mr Souza, who drew his pistol and is seen on camera shooting the attacker at close range.
The in-store video shows the officer disappear from the frame while his wife is seen taking cover in an aisle with her hands over her ears.
Mr Souza then appears back in the picture and hands his child over to the mother.
He moves outside the frame again before reportedly shooting the other assailant, identified as Italo Creato, 22.
The action took place in Bifarma in the centre of Campo Limpo Paulista, local news station Radio Acesa reported.

A woman on horseback appears to repeatedly whip a hunt saboteur with a riding crop after he tried to stop her “charging down” his fellow protesters in shocking footage.
In the video the furious rider screams “get off my horse ” and strikes out wildly at the masked man as he tries to grab onto the reins during an alleged clash with the East Sussex & Romney Marsh Hunt Club on Saturday.
Saboteurs claim she lashed him with her horse whip 17 times before charging at their group on marshland near the village of Pevensey.
But others commented that it looked as though the rider was protecting her horse after it was 'spooked' by protesters.
Footage of the ugly confrontation was later posted on the Brighton Hunt Saboteurs’ Facebook page and has been viewed more than 350,000 times.
Terrifying footage captures fairground revellers screaming in terror as "overloaded" carriages on a spinning octopus ride crash to the ground.
Fifteen people on board the 'Takada' attraction were injured yesterday during a festival in Samut Prakan, near Bangkok, Thailand.
The ride crashed when two hydraulic pumps, connecting the octopus to its tentacles, broke which sent eight carts careering to the ground at full speed.
Footage from onlookers captured sparks flying as one arm hit the ground with a massive bang, followed by another loud crash from a second tentacle - each one holding around eight people.
A girl was seen being flung back as the ride accelerates to the sound of screams. The octopus's head then toppled over as passenger's ran for cover.
Ambulances arrived after the incident at 9.40pm and rushed 15 people to hospital to be treated for cuts, bruises and fractures.
While pictures showed the damage done to the carriages as they skidded along the ground.

Three men who launched a vile gun, machete and knife attack on a reveller outside a nightclub have been jailed for attempted murder.
Their victim, a 42-year-old man, was shot in the chest after a sawn-off shotgun was fired at him from just a few feet away.
Disturbing CCTV shows the man being attacked outside the Nite Trax club, in Leeds shortly before 1am on Monday, August 29, last year while the area was busy with people celebrating the Leeds West Indian Carnival weekend.
The victim received also received knife wounds and had to undergo life-saving surgery.
In the footage Shaquille Liddie, identified as SL in a red triangle, can be seen pointing the gun at the victim, JB with a blue triangle.
There are hundreds of innocent bystanders who scatter when they hear the gun go off.
Liddie, 24, from Leeds, was identified as having been the gunman and admitted his role in the attack.
He pleaded guilty to attempted murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and was given 14 years behind bars.
Kemar Ricketts, 29, and Seion Allen, 33, both from Leeds, decided to go to trial, but were found guilty of attempted murder.
They were each sentenced to 19 years imprisonment at Leeds Crown Court today.
Detective Chief Inspector Jim Griffiths, of West Yorkshire Police Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: “This was an absolutely appallingly violent attack and it is only by sheer chance that the victim was not killed.
“These men armed themselves with a sawn-off shotgun, a machete and a knife and shot the victim at close range in a targeted attack that we have never been able to establish the basis for.
“The whole incident was captured on CCTV and it shows just how busy the area was with people enjoying the evening at the time and the obvious risks there were to others. A woman who was an innocent bystander received slash injuries to her leg during the attack.
“It took a very lengthy and protracted investigation into the circumstances to identify the men responsible and bring them to justice.
“We hope the significant sentences they have received will send a clear deterrent message to others about how seriously offences of this nature will be treated and the heavy penalties that people can expect.
“Guns have absolutely no place in the hands of criminals in our communities and we will continue to do everything we can to tackle firearms crime and protect people from the risks that violent offenders like these present.”
Notorious murderer Charles Manson died of natural causes on Sunday evening, according to prison officials. He was 83-years-old.
Manson was deemed responsible for a two-day murderous rampage through southern California in August 1969 that left seven people dead. While Manson didn't commit the killings himself, he commanded others to do so.
Manson had spent nearly five decades behind bars since his conviction and had served time in some of the state's largest prisons.
He was housed in a protective unit at a California state prison in Corcoran prior to his death on Sunday.
