Rumors have been swirling for months that Megyn Kelly, one of the most popular personalities on Fox News, has had her sights set on a position at CNN. Kelly, who has not been shy about her disdain over working conditions at the nation's most watched news network, is reportedly considering salary offers less than the $20 million that she has been offered by Fox to stay.

On Thursday, Vanity Fair reported that Kelly is also entertaining the possibility of jumping to ABC.

However, it appears that the network's staff are just as sick of Megyn Kelly as Megyn Kelly is of Fox News.

Kelly plays the victim card, claims source

breitbart News was the first to break the story in the ongoing love/hate relationship saga between Kelly and her employer. Joel Pollack, a senior editor-at-large at Breitbart, obtained an exclusive interview from an unnamed source from within Fox News and, according to Pollack's source, it appears that Kelly is not exactly well-liked around the studio.

“Everybody in the building is sick of it. We absolutely can’t stand it anymore,” stated the source to Breitbart. “This ‘all me, all the time’ tour-- ‘I’m the victim,’-- ‘I’m going to be poisoned’-- is getting really old."

The source was evidently referring to the widespread rumor that Kelly's food or drink had been "poisoned" by a Trump surrogate prior to the first presidential debate. Kelly denied the rumor in her new book, "Settle for More."

“Go.

We don’t care. Leave," added the Fox News source. "You want to be friends with Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon? Go to CNN. Have fun.”

According to the Breitbart report, Fox is also upset with Megyn Kelly over her decreasing viewership, as well as disappointing sales figures over her latest book. The book's publisher, HarperCollins, is also owned by Rupert Murdoch.

Megyn Kelly's decline

Kelly's slide in the ratings appears to have begun in early October, after she engaged in a highly-publicized Twitter war with Fox News colleague Sean Hannity, who accused Kelly of being a Clinton supporter.

Things took an even more bizarre turn later that month during an interview with Trump surrogate, and former House Speaker, Newt Gingrich. During the interview Gingrich became irate after Kelly referred to Donald Trump as a "sexual predator," causing him to retaliate by claiming that Kelly was "obsessed with sex." Megyn Kelly cut the contentious interview short, but not without first taking a parting shot at Gingrich, imploring him to seek help for his anger issues.
