Megyn Kelly got more than she bargained for when she tried to defend anti-Trump bias in the media and then used inflammatory language to refer to Donald Trump. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich called her out.
So what got it all started? First, Megyn tried to defend the current extreme negative media bias towards Trump with the theory that it’s Donald’s fault the stories are all negative – then she went and proved Gingrich’s point:
Kelly: “If Mr. Trump is a sexual predator…”
Oh, get the popcorn ready folks – fireworks and drama in this thrilling interview.
A more balanced approach might have been to ask that leading question as “what if the allegations are true?” Much more honest and less inflammatory than saying “If Mr. Trump is a sexual predator…” which is borderline accusatory and definitely goes to the bias claims that Newt made.
While this many minutes or that many segments of positive versus negative coverage is certainly a measure of the media’s leftward, globalist-friendly attitude, sometimes it is these more nuanced inflammatory statements that measure their inability to think from a neutral position.
Ms. Kelly blew this interview and deserved everything she got.
