Declaring COI[edit]

I created this article's first draft, which I submitted via WP:AFC. It was reviewed and published by an editor there. I have a WP:COI as a paid consultant to NBC. While I am a frequent Wikipedia contributor, and try to always abide by the five pillars, I will not do direct edits on this article because of my conflict of interest. Instead, I will submit suggestions here. I am also always happy to do further research and writing if anyone has ideas they'd like me to look into further.

Remove false statement[edit]

I have a WP COI, as disclosed above or I would do this myself, as it's clear cut

The following statement in the section, NBC News (2015-present), already properly removed once as "gossip" and coatrack, was restored by the same almost single purpose IP address. It should be removed again. The statement is false. Kelly is still an employee of NBC as of now. It incorrectly summarizes the source, which reports on rumors of possible future events. Even if it was accurately summarized, it would violate WP: CRYSTAL BALL. And based on her three-year contract, news media is reporting that any separation in the future will be a negotiated settlement, not a firing. So the statement will remain false in the future. The subject of Kelly's tenure at NBC can be revisited for this article, with a reliable source, when events are in the past, not the future.

"Kelly's tenure on NBC was short-lived, as she was dismissed just short of two years on the air following controversial remarks on the nature of blackface."
