The public’s respect for the media is as low as it has been for decades. We have reported about the bias and elitist attitudes exhibited by the New York Times, New Yorker, Atlantic, and other similarly styled publishers of political news when the subject matter deals with Donald Trump.
The cable mediums are not exempt from these same biases. Enter Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly. Tonight, she told Speaker Newt Gingrich to go home and “work on his anger issues.” Throughout her interview with Gingrich, Kelly downplayed Donald Trump’s chances of prevailing in the presidential election. At one point, Gingrich told her to forego any further discussion of politics for the next two weeks if she thought the election was over.
Kelly persisted with her anti-Trump agenda by bringing up the women who had accused Trump of improper sexual contact. Gingrich had enough of her biased opinions of Trump and suggested that she focus on issues other than sex. It was then when a visibly flustered Kelly accused the Speaker of having an anger problem.
OUR FREE OPINION
Megyn Kelly lost her cool tonight. She did not exhibit much intellect and allowed her passionate dislike for Trump to cause her to have a mini meltdown. Her ugly demeanor and attitude directed towards Gingrich are unfortunate. Her dislike for Trump is obvious, but she doesn’t need to attack her guests to reinforce her opinions. She needs to work on her control, especially when Trump is the subject matter.
