Megyn Kelly Reportedly Offered Over $20 Million To Stay At Fox News
Huffington Post - 5 months
Fox News has reportedly offered anchor Megyn Kelly a compensation package worth over $20 million, according to Vanity Fair. The magazine cited multiple anonymous sources who confirmed the figure. Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Kelly’s contract expires in July. Her show, “The Kelly File,” had the second-highest ratings among cable news shows last year, with an average of  2.3 million viewers. Fox News star Bill O’Reilly’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” which brought in an average of 2.8 million viewers, snagged the top spot. A salary over $20 million would bring Kelly up to O’Reilly’s level, according to the Wall Street Journal. O’Reilly’s contract also ends next year. Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch told the paper last week that he hoped they would come to an agreement “very soon,” but that it’s up to Kelly.

A Notre Dame return to the Bronx with vivid memories in their Pinstripe Bowl win
Bronx News - about 3 years
By Rich Mancuso BRONX, NEW YORK, DECEMBER 29- This was not the game that was titled, “The College Football Game of the Century” of November 9, 1946 at the old Yankee Stadium. Army and Notre Dame then came into that game undefeated and the result was a 0-0 tie. The Irish of Notre Dame have had a previous and illustrious history playing football in the Bronx.   That history continued Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl with a Notre Dame 29-16 win over Rutgers. There was limited drama in this one with the exception of Tommy Rees, passing for 319 yards in his final college game for the Irish and five field goals kicked by Brian Brindza. Notre Dame came into this game ranked 25th in the nation. Then it was not a Bowl game, but two undefeated college football teams playing for supremacy in the Bronx, a game that was played yearly in the Bronx before 70,000 or more in the old stadium. “Army featured two Heisman Trophy winners in that game, ...

Oppo Notes: Arizona State Offensive Preview
Bruins Nation - over 3 years
A look at the offense of the Arizona State Sun Devils before they come to the Rose Bowl to take on the Bruins' defense in the biggest Pac-12 South game of the season. Going into Saturday's massive matchup with the Arizona State Sun Devils, there is a sense that the Bruins are underdogs. Even with UCLA being at the Rose Bowl for this Pac-12 clash, the Sun Devils are favored by the Vegas line. The oddsmakers also see it as a shootout, with the line for points being somewhere between 60 and 63 points combined. Me personally? I see this as a game where both defenses have an edge over the offenses in terms of overall talent and coaching, to be honest. I'd be much more shocked to see a 35-31 game than I would be a 20-17 game, last year's game aside. That isn't to say that Arizona State's offense isn't an outstanding group because it is. One of the most efficient offenses in the country, by most advanced metrics. The computers absolutely adore the Sun Devils this season, take ...

AJ Lee defeats Bayley in approximately four and a half minutes via pinfall to retain her WWE Divas Championship Bayley is out first, before the champ arrives to much cheering. Byron Saxton gives us the full, main event announce treatment. Before AJ will hand the referee her belt, she kisses it and tells it "I love you". The rookie tries for a hug and, failing that, a handshake. This, of course, leads to a kick from Lee and a couple of neckbreakers. After a takeover, she locks on a neck crank and screams, "Do you want to hug? I'm hugging your neck now, Bayley!" A couple of reasons why I think B is the best female performer in NXT.

Len Levitt: Serpico's Back: Run, Crooks, Run
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Frank Serpico may have thought his battles with the NYPD ended 40 years ago with the establishment of the Knapp Commission, which vindicated him and his allegations of police corruption, changed the course of NYPD history and made him an inspiration for cops. Instead, 40 years later, he finds himself in the middle of another police scandal. Now 77-years-old, living a semi-reclusive life upstate near Albany, Serpico opened his mail last Friday to discover that city lawyers had subpoenaed him in a $50 million lawsuit filed against the city, the police department and Jamaica Hospital by police whistle-blower and/or malcontent Adrian Schoolcraft. In 2009, Schoolcraft, a patrolman in Brooklyn's 81st precinct, secretly recorded roll calls, at which the commanding officer, Deputy Inspector Steven Mauriello, ordered cops to downgrade felonies to misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was. That Halloween night, after Schoolcraft departed the ...

General Delivers Bad News For Guantanamo Bay
Huffington Post - about 4 years
WASHINGTON -- As much as $170 million is needed to improve facilities for the troops stationed at the Guantanamo Bay detention center that President Barack Obama has marked for extinction, the top U.S. commander in South and Central America said Wednesday. The head of U.S. Southern Command, Gen. John Kelly, told the House Armed Services Committee that upgrades to buildings including barracks and the dining hall for the American personnel assigned to the joint task force at the U.S. base in Cuba are badly needed. He described the living conditions at Guantanamo as "pretty questionable." "We need to take care of our troops," said Kelly. Kelly also said, though, the detainees are living in humane conditions. Obama had pledged to shutter the prison at Guantanamo soon after taking office but Congress opposed it, passing a law that prohibits the government from transferring Guantanamo prisoners to U.S. soil and requiring security guarantees before they can be sent ...

FBI: We know who carried out greatest art heist in American history
Fox News - about 4 years
The FBI knows who pulled off the biggest art heist in history, but they aren't naming names. And as for what become of the $580 million worth of masterpieces stolen exactly 23 years ago from a Boston museum, investigators say that trail went cold a decade ago. The FBI said Monday it would be "imprudent" to disclose the identities of the thieves who stole 13 works of art from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in 1990, but said they belong to a criminal organization, and they said they believe the art work has "changed hands several times" over the years.  "The FBI believes with a high degree of confidence in the years after the theft the art was transported to Connecticut and the Philadelphia region and some of the art was taken to Philadelphia where it was offered for sale by those responsible for the theft," Special Agent Richard DesLauriers said during a press conference. "With that same confidence we have identified the thieves who are members of a criminal organizat ...

Rebecca Sive: Robin Kelly Winning Jesse Jackson Jr.'s Seat Is a Textbook Case for Women Politicians
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Illinois's second congressional district seat, held by Jesse Jackson, Jr. for 17 years, is a big political prize: a safe seat for Democrats, winning the Democratic primary is tantamount to winning the general. The seat is not likely to be open again anytime soon. District voters, wearied by the saga of Jackson's downfall, and by his apparent inability to serve the district, were looking for someone who cared. The result was that once Jackson resigned, a couple dozen names were tossed around. The Election Day Democratic primary ballot included 14 of them. At the start, among the better known names was state senator Donne Trotter, whose years of legislative experience and close ties to powerful political leaders appeared to make him a frontrunner. Then, he was arrested for carrying an unlicensed gun. With at least a gun killing a day in Chicago, a gun-toting candidate, no matter his clout, was not a plan. No campaign for him.

Kel Kelly: The Pope And Renouncing My MBA From Assumption College

Ironically, I sent the following letter to the President of Assumption College on the same day Pope Benedict announced his resignation: February 11, 2013 Mr. Francesco Cesareo Assumption College 500 Salisbury Street Worcester, MA 01609 Dear Mr. Cesareo, It's ironic that Pope Benedict announced his resignation today given the purpose of my letter, which, were it not for Nemo, would have already been sent off to you. Regardless, I believe the purpose of this letter is still meaningful and speaks to a bigger issue. I received an MBA from Assumption College in the spring of 1993, and it is with absolute clarity that I formally renounce my Assumption MBA. Based on Pope Benedict's recent egregious accusations about gay people and gay marriage, I can no longer have any affiliation in my life to the Catholic Church. I feel it is important to explain my reasons. You should note that I am a woman married to a woman. Together we are raising four truly exceptional c ...

Len Levitt: A Case for Sherlock Holmes
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Bill Bratton appears to be all over the map these days. Working in the private sector in New York after leaving the Los Angeles Police Department, he landed a well-publicized consultancy last month with the troubled Oakland Police Department. He has also been telling mayoral candidates in New York that he is available again to head the NYPD. Last week after the disclosure that Britain's Home Secretary intended to change the law to allow foreigners to head police agencies in the U.K., British newspapers suggested that Bratton might become commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. That's the London outfit known as Scotland Yard. Bratton sounded amenable. His name had surfaced two years before, following urban riots and the enfolding of the Rupert Murdoch newspaper hacking scandal, which implicated the Metropolitan Police's top officials. But he had been blocked from applying because the law forbade foreigners to head British police agencies. Last week Bratton told ...

Len Levitt: Quinn and Kelly: Can This Marriage Be Saved?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
So there's a deal: City Council Speaker Christine Quinn keeps Ray Kelly as police commissioner if she's elected mayor, according to the NY Post. Notwithstanding that the accuracy range of any Post story is about 50-50, this one, by reporters Josh Margolin and Dan Mangan, has the ring of truth. Most importantly, there has been no unequivocal denial from Quinn or Kelly. Kelly's non-denial denial is especially significant. By not denying the story, he has allowed himself and the NYPD to become entangled in mayoral politics. Here's what Quinn's and Kelly spokesmen said: Quinn's spokesman Jamie McShane told the Post that Quinn "has repeatedly said that the next mayor of the city of New York would be incredibly lucky to have Ray Kelly stay on as their police commissioner." In an email to this reporter, he added: "It would be presumptuous for Speaker Quinn to offer Ray Kelly or anyone else a job because she's not the mayor." No denial there. Kelly's spokesma ...

Night at the museum: The greatest art heist of all time
Fox News - over 4 years
It was early morning in March 1990 when two men dressed as police officers buzzed the side door at a Boston museum and claimed they were there to investigate a disturbance. A little more than an hour later, the men left with what is said to be the most valuable collection of stolen artwork in history: $580 million worth of famous works, including Rembrandt's only seascape, "The Storm on the Sea of Galilee," and Vermeer's "The Concert," a masterpiece valued at more than $200 million. Investigators over the years have followed leads from Nevada to France, but the priceless items snatched from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum have never been recovered. Law enforcement sources, however, told that they are confident the crime will be solved and the paintings returned to their frames at the museum -- a four-story Italian-style palace built 110 years ago by Gardner after her husband, a shipping magnate, died and left her a $3 million fortune.   "There's some very vi ...

Kel Kelly: Equal Rights Shouldn't Have An Asterisk
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Right or wrong, I have become acutely aware that all of a sudden, I take it as a personal affront that my friends would vote for any candidate who does not support gay rights. As a gay woman, I have always respected the diversity of people's opinions and believe that that's what makes this country great. However, I think it is unacceptable and against our constitution to have anything short of equal rights for all human beings. While I have always felt this way, up until now I tolerated and respected friends' vocal support of the GOP and their anti-gay-rights agenda. I'm not sure what changed, but that tolerance is gone. If a presidential candidate vocally and repeatedly declared that he or she was going to fight against equal rights for Catholics, Jews, Mormons, African Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, Irish, Italians, the physically handicapped, the intellectually handicapped, men, women, heterosexuals, senior citizens and/or some other category of people, my friends ...
