Bill O’Reilly Attacks Megyn Kelly for Revealing Sexual Harassment

There’s nothing like mansplaining sexual harassment, especially when said mansplainer is a bloated white guy whose self-driven agenda protects his network before his fellow colleague. When Megyn Kelly revealed that she was sexually harassed by Roger Ailes,founder and former Chairman and CEO of Fox News and the Fox Television Stations Group, people believed her, especially since many others (including Gretchen Carlson) have come forward with the same story. Kelly revealed disturbing anecdotes about his alleged behavior, including the fact that “He tried to kiss [her] three times [in his office],” and when she “rejected that,” he asked [her] when [her] contract was up.” When she brought the matter up to a supervisor at Fox News, he assured her of Ailes good character and suggested she avoid him.

When Bill O’Reilly, a television host at Fox News, was asked about Kelly’s revelation, he wasn’t pleased, saying, he’s “not interested in basically litigating something that is finished that makes my network look bad.” He then suggested she go through HR instead or leave the company.

First, Bill O’Reilly’s entire career is founded on questioning the political process and using the media as a pulpit to push his personal agenda regardless of what party is in the white house. Should he leave it to the political process instead, much like his own suggestion to Kelly? After all, that’s the normal route, and if he’s unhappy with the regime in office, he should just sit down and shut up, right? Second, Kelly tried to make her complaints known, and Ailes was far too powerful to oust from the inside. Third, the media is often used to expose injustice, and allowing sexual harassment is an injustice. O’Reilly doesn’t like it because it’s now at his own network. Lastly, O’Reilly is a coward. He should stand up and make some noise when it’s not in his own self-interest for once. Maybe he should also be a woman for a day and learn empathy. And since that’s not going to happen, then he should be a man for a day and learn to protect people.

Megyn Kelly Squashes Donald Trump Feud: WATCH NOW


Megyn Kelly’s interview with Donald Trump was more of a schmooze-fest than a showdown, and perhaps that’s a good thing. I have long maintained that the Kelly debate question which sparked their sparring was inappropriate, but that’s neither here nor there. Trump continued to hit her back harder on his campaign trail, and Kelly took it in stride. And to prove her cool status, she actually called Trump to squash the beef, and he complied. The interview is worth a watch, if only for the very end when Trump hilariously proclaims that if he loses, he will have viewed his entire campaign as a complete and total failure. Trump shed light on his hurt feelings, his hit-them-back harder approach to the press, and his respect for Kelly’s gesture. Watch below.

WHO’s fooling WHO? Have Presidential Attack Ads Gone Too Far?

Many, if not all, of this summer’s presidential campaign ads are vehemently negative, highly critical, and somewhat sensationalistic. But are they misleading? And do viewers believe what they hear?

Interestingly enough, one of the blondes at Fox News (also known as Megyn Kelly) — a network often chided for its questionable fact-checking – recently accused both Obama and Romney of telling tales in their attack ads, screaming, “When [Obama and Romney] go to the ad campaigns, they’re completely negative! And and they lie! They lie!… Does truth matter?!”

One example of the ad-mud-slinging included Romney’s heavy-handed editing to make it look as if Obama insulted business owners by telling them they did not build their businesses on their own. Romney ‘s “you didn’t build that”attack is especially misleading, even in the midst of a markedly negative campaign. The Romney folks basically took an Obama speech in which he explained that infrastructure such as roads and bridges are necessary to build businesses, and cut out the part about the roads so that Obama’s message was changed to, “you didn’t build that business yourself.” Romney then put a salty business owner in one of his ads, who asked Obama why he was demonizing small business owners like himself.

In a Friday interview with WCTV-TV in Tallahassee, Obama explained: “What I said was together we build roads and we build bridges.” He added, “That’s the point I’ve made millions of times, and by the way, that’s a point Mr. Romney has made as well, so this is just a bogus issue.”

Taking quick action, the Obama camp cleverly shot back with an internet ad of their own: “Mitt will say anything.” The ad shows clips of his speech where he made the purported diss against business owners, refutes Romney’s mischaracterization, and then shows clips of a Romney speech containing a familiar refrain: you can’t really build businesses without roads and bridges (click here to view the ad).

The other, more widely known campaign ad controversy, is Obama’s attack on Romney’s reign at Bain Capital from 1992-2002. In spite of documentary evidence to the contrary, Romney maintains that Obama is all wrong about his status at Bain during the years in question, when the company conspicuously closed down U.S. businesses (e.g. GST Steel in Kansas City) in favor of jobs oversees. Romney has long claimed that he departed Bain in 1999, and therefore has nothing to do with Bain’s questionable behavior. He wants an apology from Obama. But Obama won’t apologize. The President maintains that Romney was at Bain from 1999 to 2002, relying in part on SEC filings for those years, which list Romney as sole shareholder, director, chief executive officer, and president (there is also a state disclosure firm showing that he earned $100,000 as a Bain executive during 2001 and 2002, in addition to his investment earnings).

Despite the controversy over this style of ads, sometimes it’s necessary. It’s time to ferret out some answers about the amorphous Mormon, his Bain exploits, his riches, and how much he pays in taxes. As long as Obama doesn’t frankenbite Romney’s speeches, I’d say it’s fine.

Jon Stewart Calls Out Megyn Kelly and Fox News for Nazi Hypocrisy

Here’s the story in a nutshell. Democratic Representative Steve Cohen compared Republican “lies” about health care reform to Nazi Germany, and Republicans went nuts. When Megyn Kelly of Fox News was accused of making the same inappropriate, gratuitous comparisons, she denied it. Jon Stuart pounced on the opportunity to prove her wrong, which brings me to the clip below. Enjoy!
