Megyn Kelly is a bulldog. You don’t rise to her level of prominence in her field without having some stones. She is also a damn good journalist and reporter. She has worked for Fox News, and her podcast is one of the highest consistently rated shows of its kind. She doesn’t get those accolades and numbers by spreading false information, or conspiracy theories or being bombastic. Kelly is wildly popular because she is a conservative, but she is also smart and isn’t afraid to ask uncomfortable question, often of her own party. You know, the way journalists SHOULD be.
We all know about the Paul Pelosi story by now. It appears that the San Francisco police department has been withholding information and weren’t monitoring his house (allegedly) as they were supposed to be. Fair game to be called out be a real journalist, except there aren’t any on the left. So, when Megyn Kelly called out the police, the New York Times had some unkind and inaccurate things to say about Kelly. Her response? Priceless. Check this out.
Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly is furious with The New York Times after it attacked her for questioning the details of the attack on Paul Pelosi. She accused the newspaper of “smearing me as a purveyor of misinformation” because she questioned the San Francisco Police Department’s story on the attack.
“First of all, f–k you, New York Times, for suggesting it was anything sinister or homophobic about what we said,” she said during “The Megyn Kelly Show,” on Monday.
“We said the San Francisco PD has eggs on its face, so you can pound sand,” she said.
She went nuclear.https://t.co/A4sxN9oXjD

That seems pretty straightforward! There is no denying that the San Francisco PD DOES have egg on their face. They didn’t do their job, and if the state of the city is any indication, they haven’t been for some time. Kelly rightfully called it what it is and right on cue the NYT, one of the most disgraceful excuses for a newspaper jumped on her. Did they think she wasn’t going to punch back? Kelly continued.
“The New York Times is claiming I am spreading misinformation,” she said.
“What did I do?” the host said.
“I ‘raised doubts that all facts were being disclosed’ on this attack. I am not kidding!”
“Hey, New York Times, we call that being a journalist. You should try it. It can work out really well for you. Unbelievable,” she said.
There is an old saying, “mess with the bull, you get the horns”. Guess what the NYT got? Looks like they got both horns run completely through them. Of course, any reasonable person knows what the Times had devolved into, along with the lion’s share of the mainstream media. The exact reason people like Megyn Kelly have exploded in popularity. You can’t peddle a clearly one sided narrative 24/7 without people eventually calling shenanigans. Megyn Kelly called shenanigans and left a nasty voicemail!
“I’m not the only person being smeared as a misinformation purveyor for literally asking [for] facts,” she said.
“At no point have I suggested a conspiracy theory in the Paul Pelosi case,” she said. “I said the police appeared to have egg on their face and that there appeared to be more facts yet to be disclosed.”
Boom! Kelly set the record straight with facts. Facts are something the San Francisco PD and the NYT aren’t really concerned with. They are concerned with controlling the narrative, even if most of the country suspects monkey business was taking place at the Pelosi residence with the head monkey Nancy out of town. Either way, my guess is the NYT won’t mess with Megyn again anytime soon.
