Megyn Kelly: 'So many reporters ... completely biased against Trump, it’s absurd'
By Joe Concha
NBC'S MEGYN KELLY said in an interview that "there are so many reporters who are completely biased against Trump, it’s absurd," but also said that Trump "[targets] them."
Kelly's interview with TVNewser.com published Friday comes as her new 9 a.m. ET program Megyn Kelly Today is set to launch on NBC as the third hour of The Today Show on Monday. The former attorney also believes reporters are being roped into personal battles with President Trump instead of staying "on the sidelines where they belong."
"It’s not the way it used to be, being a journalist today," said Kelly, who jumped from Fox News to NBC in January after 13 years at the cable news network. . . . He [President Trump] is effectively, and not just him, but his most ardent supporters, have made us players on the field instead of on the sidelines where we belong," she continued.
Kelly was routinely attacked on Twitter by then-candidate Trump following the first GOP primary debate on Aug. 6, 2015, after she asked the president about his past derogatory comments about women. A backlash quickly ensued from Trump, who said of Kelly that during the debate, "blood was coming out of her eyes. Blood was coming out of her--- whatever," during an interview with CNN's Don Lemon.
Kelly never hit back at Trump personally during the rest of the campaign on her Fox program or social media.
