Megyn Kelly believes the media were partly responsible for the riot on Capitol Hill earlier this month because they “checked their objectivity” when covering Donald Trump

“They hated him so much, they checked their objectivity, and it wasn’t that CNN All of them did. They just couldn’t verify their own personal feelings about him,” Kelly said in a recent interview with BBC Newsnight

The former Fox News host then said that “too many” reporters had followed “Jorge Ramos’ theory of covering Trump” in describing Trump and his behavior as racist, sexist and misogynist

“He advocated, before Trump’s election, that we should cover him differently, that you should outwardly call him racist, sexist, misogynist, all of that, and that it was important to history And I think too many reporters agree with that at their peril, ”Kelly said“ Part of the reason we’ve seen what happened on Capitol Hill here two weeks ago is because that there has been a complete lack of trust, a destruction of trust in the media and people don’t know where to turn for real information They no longer trust the media and that’s a major problem ”

“Megyn Kelly reminds you that when the president lies hundreds of times and encourages rejection of certified democracy, it makes sense to blame the media for their prejudice against liars,” tweeted John Fugelsang, host of SiriusXM’s “Tell Me Everything”

“Megyn Kelly lost her Fox News TV show and was forced to hire a security guard to protect her children after asking Donald Trump a tough question during a presidential debate She should know better than anyone else that objective coverage of Trump would of course be very negative, ”said writer David Frum in response to Kelly’s comments.
