Megyn Kelly came out of retirement to tell one truth that left jaws on the ground
Megyn Kelly made her return to Fox News.
But that was just the start of a surprising comeback.
And that’s because Megyn Kelly came out of retirement to tell one truth that left jaws on the ground.
Megyn Kelly made her first appearance on Fox News in nearly three years when she sat for an interview with Tucker Carlson.
During the conversation, the two touched on media bias.
Kelly surprised Fox viewers by flat out admitting the media dropped any pretense of neutrality and now actively works to defeat Donald Trump.
The Daily Caller reports:
“There was a premise that the other media, the mainstream media, maybe they weren’t far left, but that there was a baked-in bias against people who believe in homeschooling, who believe in a pro-life position, who might have a gun,” Kelly said, speaking about how the media has changed and describing how Fox News began. “And so they made a whole empire based on programming to those people. I think what’s happened now on the other half of the country, on sort of the mainstream, is they have embraced it.”
“It was sort of passive and now it’s active. Now it’s, ‘Let’s work. He’s too bad. We have to work together. We’ll be judged. History will judge as whether we were for or against this man [Trump].’
CKelly noted this change came before voters elected Trump in 2016 and mentioned an interview she did with Jorge Ramos of Univision, who argued that journalists must become partisan and “abandon neutrality.”
“He said, ‘That’s over. You’ve got to come out and you’ve got to say Trump’s a racist. Trump’s a misogynist. Trump’s a bigot. Whatever your view is, you’ve got to say it and you’ve got to sell it, and that the time for neutrality has passed,’” she recalled. “And I do believe he’s [Ramos] persuaded — and others have come to their own conclusion — that that’s the way forward.”
Kelly should know.
She worked at NBC news for a little over a year and got a taste of how so-called “journalists” at a “mainstream” media outlets operate.
Kelly and Trump famously feuded during the 2016 campaign.
But even Donald Trump’s barbs did not color her view of how the so-called “mainstream” media covers the President.
