Megyn Kelly Flips the Script, Blames Liberal Media for U.S. Capitol Violence

Kelly admitted that the message coming from the White House could have contained less rhetoric. “But it’s not going to change how divided we are here in America because Trump was the symptom of those divisions, not the cause of them.”

Conservative personality Megyn Kelly is trying to turn the tables on CNN and other media outlets by blaming them for the deadly riots that took place at the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6.

Kelly made her comments to BBC Newsnight on Saturday.

“Part of the reason we saw what happened at the Capitol here two weeks ago is because there had been a complete lack of trust in the media,” said Kelly. “People don’t know where to turn for true information, they don’t trust the media anymore.”

Kelly left Fox News in 2017 following a feud with Trump. She was fired from NBC News in 2018 for controversial comments about blackface.

Kelly admitted that the message coming from the White House could have contained less rhetoric. “But it’s not going to change how divided we are here in America because Trump was the symptom of those divisions, not the cause of them.”

British journalist Hugo Lowell reacted to Kelly’s assessment of the Capitol siege. “I’m sorry but I’ve never heard anything so ridiculous as Megyn Kelly saying on BBC Newsnight that Trump mobs attacked the Capitol because they didn’t trust the media — not Trump lying that the election was stolen.”

Kelly said the media would stop at nothing to ruin Trump even if it meant deceiving the American people.

“They hated him so much, they checked their objectivity, and it wasn’t just CNN, all of them did. They just couldn’t check their own personal feelings about him,” Kelly said.

Chris Wallace Criticizes Former President Donald Trump

“[The Trump White House] was every man and woman for themselves. When they went on the Sunday shows, they were appealing to an audience of one, because President Trump watched,” Wallace said.

Fox News host Chris Wallace ripped former President Donald Trump in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter recently. Wallace said when he was covering the Trump administration there was a lot of misinformation coming from The White House.

“[The Trump White House] was every man and woman for themselves. When they went on the Sunday shows, they were appealing to an audience of one, because President Trump watched,” Wallace said. “So, when somebody went on, oftentimes there was a debate going on inside the administration, and they were trying to make their case more to the president, who was watching at home, than to the viewers.

Wallace, whose Fox News Sunday program turned 25 on Sunday, has been widely criticized by conservative viewers for some of his reporting when it comes to the way he covers the Republican party. Many point to the way he moderated one of the presidential debates last year. 

“If you are a reporter covering the White House, there is nothing better than if there are tensions inside the White House, and they are arguing it out in the public,” said Wallace.

Wallace said he thinks the format is just as important as ever, even with consumers mostly getting their news through social media throughout the day.

“It’s still an important platform for a new administration, or any administration, and the opposition, to get their points out,” said Wallace.

David Limbaugh Writes Tribute to Rush

“Though Rush is now known to the world as a consummate talker, what is not widely known is that he didn’t start that way,” Limbaugh wrote.

Rush Limbaugh’s brother penned an emotional tribute to the late radio icon reflecting on his upbringing and how it molded his passion for a medium that he single-handedly revolutionized over the course of three decades. 

David Limbaugh said Rush would turn down the volume on the television and do play-by-play for his family. He said their family bought him a Remco Caravelle, a toy that allowed him to beam his broadcast out of the home’s radios.

“Though Rush is now known to the world as a consummate talker, what is not widely known is that he didn’t start that way,” he wrote in the op-ed published in the Southeast Missourian. “He was first a listener – an information sponge, quietly inhaling knowledge at the feet of our dad.” 

Limbaugh died February 17 after a year-long battle with lung cancer. He was 70.

David Limbaugh says that background helped as his brother became the “tip of the spear” for conservatives, taking “tidal waves” of abuse from “hateful leftists” who devoted their lives to destroying him. They failed; he says.

“Rush was responsible not for the development of modern conservatism but for its explosion into the mainstream of American life,” writes David, adding, “He single-handedly resurrected AM talk radio.”
