I don't think this has been diaried yet, my apologies if it has.  I first heard that Megyn Kelly's walk to the "decision desk" on Fox was scripted listening to Stand Up with Pete Dominick yesterday on POTUS - XM Radio.  He's awesome if you've never listened.  It was actually a listener who had tweeted to him that the whole thing was staged.

Poking around the internet, you can find the clip where Megyn Kelly herself says "when we practiced this before" as she is walking down the hall.  It's right at the 1:30 mark on the following video:

This particular clip has been pulled off several liberal YouTube channels (googling finds many dead links) but still is up at Crooks and Liars.  I wish I knew how to download it to my computer to keep it for all posterity as it appears Fox is scrubbing the internets of the obvious proof they and Rove knew Obama was going to win, and win big.  The big quote from Kelly is "Now when we practiced this before, in our rehearsals, we lost all audio in our ears, right about here."  Why would they practice a walk to the decision desk?????

So all this Faux disbelief is really only applicable to Faux viewers and the mark - Mitt Romney.  Rove knew the whole time that his big-time donors were not going to get their money's worth.  He'd been lying throughout the entire campaign, as there was only a few days after the first debate where Willard had any momentum.

Just thought you guys would like to see the actual evidence.  From the fox's mouth herself.   I had posted this as a comment in another diary but then realized if I'm just hearing about it, maybe it's not widely known.

From the Maine Progressives Warehouse blog:

(1:07)That awkward moment when Kelley (sic), in a moment of unscripted ad-libbing, openly admits to the viewing audience that she- and others- had previously rehearsed and scripted this lil stunt.

Let’s stop for a second and think about what is happening here. Because this gets to the crux of the lies and manipulations that Fox News has demonstrated for years…

We are watching the host, during Election Night coverage, get up and leave her seat, taking with her multiple camera and light crews, positioned in front and behind her. No one questions her doing this, nor seems even slightly surprised by her decision to stroll about the studio on a self-propelled field trip.

We later hear the host herself admit THAT THEY HAD REHEARSED THIS WALK BEFOREHAND, lamenting that same as before, her audio cuts out around a corner. An unidentified man speaks into the audio feed, asking if she can hear him and registers no surprise that she does not respond, nor has he spoken up questioning her before this point.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
