CNN’s ‘2000's’ Pens Love Letter to Stewart; Breathes Fire Against Fox
July 14th, 2018 10:20 AM
Ahead of Sunday’s new episode of the CNN series The 2000's (which is airing maybe a few years too soon), let’s take a look back at a few pathetic moments from the first episode, which focused on the decade’s movies and television. The CNN documentary blasted Fox News and MSNBC for having corroded the news discourse and heaped a torrent of praise on far-left comedians and former Comedy Central…
New Republic Fumes: Megyn’s New, Apolitical Persona Won’t Fly
October 4th, 2017 5:07 PM
Megyn Kelly now hosts the third hour of the Today show, and it’s a less-boozy Today With Kathie Lee and Hoda than it is a daytime version of The Kelly File. Kelly has said that she’s “kind of done with politics for now,” and that she’d like her hour to be “a unifying force” in a sundered America. To which The New Republic’s Clio Chang retorts, “Too little, too late.” In a Wednesday piece, Chang…
NPR: Megyn Kelly 'Hoping to Get Away from Ideology' Like Diane Sawyer?
January 6th, 2017 6:53 AM
NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik appeared on the NPR-produced midday show Here and Now on Wednesday to discuss Megyn Kelly’s move from Fox News to NBC. He twice praised her for “cannily” negotiating herself across the media spectrum -- strange new respect which might make a conservative think she’s headed straight to the left. Then came the jaw-dropper: He said she was "desperately hoping…
NBC Cheers Kelly’s ‘Finest Moments’...Taking on Republicans
January 4th, 2017 3:59 PM
After news broke on Tuesday that Fox News host Megyn Kelly would be moving to NBC News, the Today show promptly welcomed Kelly with an online article recalling her six “finest moments” during her tenure at FNC. Strangely, those moments focus exclusively on Kelly taking on Republicans – not a single instance was featured of her going after liberal guests.
Kelly: Clinton Used Me to Attack Trump But Then Refused to Talk to Me
December 27th, 2016 4:00 PM
Monday night, FNC’s The Kelly File aired a program dedicated to Donald Trump’s relationship with the media. During the one hour special, host Megyn Kelly spoke with correspondent Howard Kurtz, New York Times columnist Jim Rutenberg, Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik and The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway about how the media didn’t anticipate Trump’s election win. Rutenberg brought up how…
Kathy Griffin Heckles Kelly at Media Event for Saying This About Trump
December 8th, 2016 9:34 AM
So much for the tolerant left. Fox News pundit Megyn Kelly was booed by her Hollywood audience and heckled by one comedian for making a cordial remark about Donald Trump at a media event Wednesday. Kelly was speaking at The Hollywood Reporter’s annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast, a ‘Who’s Who’ gathering of prominent women in Hollywood, business, and the news industry. The audience may have…
Slate Writer: Megyn Kelly Feeds ‘Red Meat to Her White Base’
December 6th, 2016 4:28 PM
Megyn Kelly is a journalist, but she’s also a sort of actress, suggested Isaac Chotiner in a Monday review of her new book, Settle for More. To Chotiner, Kelly’s a conservative who plays a nonpartisan on TV. She has “done her best to cloud her real agenda.” And it’s worked: she has “wide-ranging respect and admiration among a press corps generally (and rightly) suspicious and dismissive of Fox…

Tim Allen Talks Hollywood Hypocrisy; Resents Ideological ‘Bullying’
November 22nd, 2016 11:08 AM
According to comedian Tim Allen, Hollywood liberals need to practice what they preach. On the November 21 segment of The Kelly File, Allen joined host Megyn Kelly to discuss model Gigi Hadid’s distasteful mimicking of Melania Trump at Sunday’s American Music Awards.
The Times, The Post, and the Fake News of Internment Camps
November 20th, 2016 5:54 PM
So the latest round of sheer nuttiness from the mainstream media? The idea that President-elect Trump intends to resurrect the infamous and quite decidedly racist “internment camps” established for Japanese-American citizens in 1942. How did this start? It started last week on FNC’s The Kelly File during a segment with Trump surrogate and former Navy Seal Carl Higbie (whom I know).
Dana Loesch Cites the MRC to Slam Media for Their Own 'Fake News'
November 17th, 2016 11:52 PM
The Blaze’s Dana Loesch unleashed on the liberal media Thursday evening, during her appearance on Fox News’ The Kelly File, for creating the atmosphere for “fake news” to flourish. And she cited the Media Research Center to do it. “It was the Media Research Center and they discovered that about 8 percent of voters, they determined that maybe if what they had believed was being said about Hillary…
Media Meme Destroyed: Trump's Turnout Operation Was Groundbreaking
November 16th, 2016 5:40 PM
During the 2016 presidential campaign, the "everybody knows" conventional wisdom in the establishment press which never went away, even as some contrary evidence appeared, was that Donald Trump's campaign, away from his rallies, was a haphazard operation which was doing very little to identify, target and persuade voters.
At the New Republic in mid-June, Jeet Heer confidently summed up the media…
On FNC, CNN's Ex-President Defends Network's Handling of Brazile Leak
November 2nd, 2016 3:16 PM
Former CNN president Jon Klein ran to his network's defense on Tuesday's Kelly File on Fox News Channel over their response to acting Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile's leak of a town hall question to Hillary Clinton's campaign. Klein reacted to Joe Concha of The Hill's call for an internal investigation of what happened by asserting that the people at CNN are "more worked…

October 26th, 2016 9:55 AM
Wednesday, ABC had a field day talking about the fiery exchange between Newt Gingrich and Megyn Kelly on FNC’s The Kelly File Tuesday night. Anchors David Muir and Robin Roberts joined analysts Matthew Dowd and Jon Karl to trash Gingrich for badgering Kelly about the Clintons’ scandals. Muir asked what the Trump team “has to gain by taking on Megyn Kelly,” before the panel argued this would only…
