The day after.

The debate on FOX.

I watched both segments. Oddly there was a LOSER.

Yup.

Megan Kelly.

It wasn’t what she asked or said. It was the way she acted during and after. She has almost always seemed fair, if hard, and takes pride in asking hard question and rendering judgment, which was a mark of her early tenure on her program of the Kelly Files.

Recently she seems to be following the teachings of  O’Reilly. A problem with that is she has appeared to becoming waspish, and viperish, rather than sharp and knowledgeable.

I would recommend to her she read a small segment of a Sci-Fi book. I cannot even remember the name of the book, but it is one of the Honor Harrington books.

The segment concerns Honor reflecting on a class from her plebe days at the Space Academy, and was called Command Presence.

The plebes filed into the class room to face a bare stage, empty, except  for little old lady sitting in a chair on the otherwise empty stage.

Silence reigned.

The plebe class stared at the old woman and were bored. And slowly the old woman transformed into the standing figure of the Fleet Admiral. And, also slowly, the class lost its boredom and stood to attention; at which point the Admiral left the stage.

Not a word spoken.

The demonstration of Command Presence complete.

Strangely, Megan had a touch of that ability when she first started her Star Position and has lost it.

I can only see distrust and declining guests for her program – especially in visw of her actions with Jeb Bush and Trump, where she bragged and took victory laps on air after “sticking it to the Man” in controlled interviews where the man was and is at a dis-advantage.

Were it I, I would not participate in any interview with her voluntarily.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
