In a thorough takedown of the left and the liberal media over their double standard in selectively assigning blame after mass shootings, the Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly dismantled on Monday night the arguments of abortion activists who have rushed to blame conservatives and the pro-life movement for supposedly causing the deadly shooting Friday at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado.
The latest verbal battle between Megyn Kelly and liberal Fox News contributor Richard Fowler took place during Tuesday’s Kelly File over a Black Lives Matter activist getting right up to the face of a Chicago police officer as live coverage unfolded of protests in Chicago related to the shooting death of LaQuan McDonald.
On Friday's The Kelly File on Fox News Channel, Harvard Law's Alan Dershowitz blasted left-wing student activists over their chilling of free speech on many college campuses: "These are the same people who claim they're seeking diversity. The last thing many of these students want is real diversity — diversity of ideas." Dershowitz continued by pointing out that "it was the students at universities who first started burning books during the Nazi regime. And these students are book-burners." He later asserted that "the fog of fascism is descending quickly over many American universities."
On Wednesday's The Kelly File, Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly touted Donald Trump's interview on CNN's New Day hours earlier where "he slams the very network he's on the phone with — something he is apparently fond of doing." Trump attacked CNN correspondent Sara Murray several times during Chris Cuomo's interview of the Republican presidential candidate. Kelly contended that the billionaire was "just as ornery as ever about reporters who don't cover him exactly the way he wants to be covered."
As part of his appearance on the Tuesday edition of Fox News Channel’s The Kelly File promoting his new book The Immortal Nicholas, The Blaze founder/host Glenn Beck and host Megyn Kelly slammed Melissa Harris-Perry for her now viral comment condemning the use of the term “hard worker” because she believed its demeaning to slaves and working mothers.
On Tuesday night’s Kelly File, MRC President Brent Bozell helped preview CNN’s Democratic presidential debate and demanded that the cable network treat the Democratic candidates the same as the Republicans were treated when Jake Tapper moderated CNN's Republican debate. In response to CNN’s Anderson Cooper who claimed it will be hard to get the Democrats to actually challenge each other, Bozell stressed the CNN host doesn’t have “the right to in a solo way decide what he’s going to do on a network that has done just the opposite with Republicans.”
In a humorous and pithy takedown of President Obama for his performance on CBS’s 60 Minutes Sunday, Fox News Digital Politics Editor Chris Stirewalt appeared on Monday’s edition of The Kelly File to express his astonishment with how Obama’s reached “the point of utter incredulity, even with people who were once very admiring” like 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft who Stirewalt described as “the sort of number one Obama-nuzzler in the whole stable of Obama-nuzzlers.”
During an appearance on Monday’s Kelly File on Fox News, Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina hit back at the Washington Post and MSNBC for accusing her of failing to pay back outstanding debt from her 2010 Senate campaign. After Fiorina explained that “the debt has been paid off,” which “the Washington Post fails to mention entirely. See facts aren’t really what the Washington Post is into anymore.”
At the top of Tuesday’s The Kelly File, host Megyn Kelly joined MediaBuzz host Howard Kurtz and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz in scorching the liberal media for their portrayal of Pope Francis’ visit to the United States as bad for the GOP while ignoring his steadfast support for life and traditional marriage.
On Megyn Kelly's Fox News show on Wednesday, Andrew Napolitano sharply criticized the city of Baltimore's agreement to pay $6.4 million to the family of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old black man who died in police custody there in April.
The Associated Press and most of the rest of the establishment press are describing the city's payout, which was approved on Thursday, as a "settlement" — an odd and inappropriate term, given that Gray's family had not yet filed a lawsuit, i.e., there was not yet a court case to "settle."
One day after denouncing the media for their double standard in the portrayal of the tea party compared to the Black Lives Matter movement, Kelly File host Megyn Kelly returned Tuesday night and along with Townhall editor Katie Pavlich, the pair squared off against Fox News Channel contributor Richard Fowler in a heated debate with Fowler excusing members of the movement who have chanted violent, anti-police rhetoric.
