Megyn Kelly Scared of Fox News Graphic

After it appeared, the anchor was shown live, with her hands over her mouth, surprised. She then burst into giggles and even discussed it with her next guest.

"That was a new alert animation, scared me a little bit," she said. "Maybe we should be scared, because the clock is ticking down right now to the fiscal cliff."

Segues like that are why they pay you the big bucks, Megyn.
