The Blaze -- Fox News host Megyn Kelly’s contentious interview with Donald Trump supporter Newt Gingrich, during which she challenged the former House Speaker at every turn and even referenced Trump as a “sexual predator,” drew the ire of conservative radio host Mark Levin, and the former #NeverTrump stalwart let Kelly have it on his Wednesday radio show.
Levin, who now plans to vote for Trump on election day, ripped Fox News and the “liberals” who are “ruining that network,” specifically Rupert Murdoch’s two sons, James and Lachlan.
Levin then turned his attention to Kelly, saying, “Their top star’s Megyn Kelly. Megyn Kelly is out of control. Megyn Kelly pretends to represent women.”
(By “pretend,” Levin was referring to a 2010 interview with Howard Stern during which Kelly made sexual references to both her and her husband’s body parts.)
Levin then reminded listeners of the “fuse” set when Kelly asked Trump the provocative “Does that sound to you like a man who should become president” question at the first Republican primary debate.
“She was so obsessed with Rosie O’Donnell,” Levin said, “and Donald Trump and things that were said back and forth, she set the stage for what became month after month of vicious personal, nasty attacks, and she’s doing it again.”
On Kelly’s interview with Gingrich, the one where Gingrich gave as good as he got by accusing Kelly of being “fascinated with sex,” Levin said, “There was no news. There was regurgitation — 14 days before an election … She is auditioning, in my opinion, for a bigger forum … whether it’s ‘Good Morning America’ or the ‘Today Show’ or even CNN — and a huge payday. Fine. But please don’t pretend you’re a journalist. And if this is the future of Fox, then Fox will be dead. Because this kind of National Enquirer stuff dressed up as journalism doesn’t fly.”

And Forth At the Fox News GOP Debate
Blog Author's Comments -- I do not watch Fox News except from what I see in the morning at my health club during part of my daily workout. I have never watched Kelly’s show aside from the video clips I come across while doing this blog. I did see her as a moderator at the first debate when she went after Donald Trump and attempted to make him look bad, which she did not do, while he was one of the many candidates vying for the Republican nomination. From what I have seen of Kelly I have no respect for her and believe that she is just another of the sleazy 'so-called' journalists trying to bury Trump and make a name for herself.
It was good to see Newt Gingrich correct her during the interview she did with him. (See Video Below) It is obvious that she makes her show all about herself and believes she is a glowing light of journalism. There is only a single person on Fox News I have any respect for and that is Sean Hannity. But, apparently the owner Rupert Murdoch considers Megyn Kelly his star attraction. It used to be that one could put some trust in the network, but in my opinion it is much like all the rest.
True journalism is all but gone and that has been clearly shown in the coverage they give and have given to Donald Trump, but there is always a free pass to Hillary Clinton, even with all the criminal baggage she has and is still getting away with and suffering no consequences for her actions. If this were anyone but Clinton they would have been indicted and would not even being considered as someone who has a chance to be the next president. She is the most crooked, evil, criminal person to ever seek the office of president. The results are clear and 91% of Donald Trump network coverage since the conventions began has been negative. Fox News is just like all the rest, 'fair and balanced' I don't think so.
