(Newser) – Fox News may still be licking its wounds after Karl Rove's "bizarre" moment on election night, but Megyn Kelly proved why she might just be the network's salvation, writes Noreen Malone at the New Republic. She was the shining star Tuesday night when she challenged Rove and stalked the halls in search of Fox's election analysts, showing her ability "to seize control of what was an embarrassing situation, and turn it into compelling television."

Don't be fooled by her "anchorbabe aura," writes Malone. Kelly knows her stuff and uses her persona to, say, slow down statistic-spouters like Rove for the benefit of her audience. That's what must drive Fox nemesis Jon Stewart nuts. "She should know better, you can imagine him thinking. She must know better." Unlike others on Fox, Kelly gets the network's brand—and values it higher than the GOP's. She is one of the few who knows how to be an anchor instead of a cheerleader. Read Malone's full piece.

At least Fox is not a part of the Obama Propaganda machine.

Those of you that love to watch Fox news, keep in mind that the owner of Fox News is not an American and his interest in America is only to gain more wealth. He is currently under investigation in England for corrupt business practices.
