This week, Megyn Kelly found herself going after Naomi Osaka on Twitter, where the pundit attacked the tennis star’s anxiety and mental health issues due to the magazine covers she’d been featured on recently. 

One of the magazines to feature Osaka on their cover was Sports Illustrated for its Swimsuit Edition, which resulted in the comments by Kelly. Nonetheless, the media outlet’s editor M.J. Day came to the defense of Osaka. 

In an interview with People, Day set the record straight of when they took these photos for the issue. 

“Well, first of all, we did that shoot back in December of 2020,” Day said. “It’s such bullying and it’s so unnecessary, and this woman did nothing wrong.”

“I’m like, ‘You know what, you’re journalists. How about you do your job and you fact check instead of jumping all over this woman for attention?'”

People would look for a comment from Kelly on these statements calling her a bully for her words towards Osaka on Twitter. 

“A bully is someone who attacks another with less power for the sake of being hurtful. Not a journalist/commentator who gets paid to comment on the news/public figures,” a source close to “The Megyn Kelly Show” host told People

Newsmax

Grant Stinchfield, a host on Newsmax, didn’t mince words as he claimed to be “happy” that Team USA Women’s Soccer and Men’s Basketball lost their Olympic openers in Tokyo.

The self-proclaimed ‘#MAGA Champion’ according to his Twitter bio said he was openly rooting against “Megan Rapinoe and her merry band of America-hating female soccer player.”

He continued by calling Team USA Men’s Basketball a “collection of whiny over-paid social justice warriors,” and a “bunch of anthem kneelers” who are “very hard to root for.”

Justin Baragona – a contributing editor for The Daily Beast – had to recap online.

Baragona pointed out that it wasn’t just Newsmax celebrating America’s defeat either.

Joe Scarborough: Teachers & Health Workers Must Be Vaccinated

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough wants President Joe Biden to create a policy that requires teachers and health workers to receive the vaccination against the coronavirus

The COVID-19 vaccine is a topic of discussion, although news networks can only urge their viewers to get vaccinated. 

Nonetheless, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough wants President Joe Biden to create a policy that requires teachers and health workers to receive the vaccination against the coronavirus, per The Hill.

“He does need to make the tough choice right now,” Scarborough said. 

“And he needs to start in his own political backyard. He needs to tell the teachers union that he’s going to require every public health care person to get it but also … every public school teacher needs to be vaccinated.”

The COVID-19 delta variant accounts for most new cases in the United States, with the majority almost entirely among the unvaccinated; Biden faces increased stress to get more aggressive in his administration’s mass vaccination efforts. 

“Our kids stayed home last year from school, and the results were absolutely devastating,” Scarborough said.

“So, we have the vaccines, and the president of the United States needs to say if you are a public school teacher or you teach at a public university, as a condition of your job, you have to get vaccinated.”
