Megyn Kelly, the former Fox News personality, has found herself in a tough situation. With her ratings falling to record lows, some of her colleagues at her old workplace are calling her out.
Fox News host Sean Hannity called out his former colleague, Megyn Kelly, along with other MSNBC news personalities, like Rachel Maddow. “By the way, are all of you people at NBC News proud? Lester Holt? Matt Lauer? Are you guys proud of this? Megyn Kelly, are you proud of that reporting?” he said, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
Hannity spoke at length about how MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow went “beyond media malpractice” during her interview with former Attorney General Eric Holder earlier this week. During the interview, Maddow failed to ask a single question regarding the Uranium One controversy involving former-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The House Intelligence Committee announced that it was beginning an investigation into the controversial arrangement, which saw the Obama administration approve the sale of 20 percent of America’s uranium supply to a Russian state-backed firm. With a recent report from The Hill demonstrating an extensive bribery scheme taking place behind the scenes, Americans were shocked to hear that the Department of Justice at the time, led by Eric Holder, did little to nothing to stop the controversial deal from being approved.
“The media is just barely, and clearly reluctantly, only now starting to cover this story,” Hannity said on Wednesday night. “Here’s a perfect example, Rachel Maddow and her cult of viewers over at ‘MSNBC conspiracy TV,’ they had former Attorney General Eric Holder on the show on Monday. She didn’t ask him a single question about Uranium One and Maddow has probably been one of the biggest proponents of pushing the false narrative lies about Trump-Russia collusion.”
Hannity added that Holder, at the time, was overseeing the FBI as head of the Department of Justice and one of the nine voting members of the committee that approved Uranium One, alongside Hillary Clinton, who was Secretary of State at the time.
“This is beyond media malpractice,” Hannity said. “By the way, are all of you people at NBC News proud? Lester Holt? Matt Lauer? Are you guys proud of this? Megyn Kelly, are you proud of that reporting?”
“Maddow has done a tremendous disservice to you, the American people, who deserve to know the truth in all of this,” Hannity concluded.
This isn’t the first time Hannity has mentioned Kelly in such a manner while criticizing his contemporary Maddow. “So in the ‘destroy Trump media’ what you just saw somehow passes for ‘news,’” Hannity said, in light of Democrat Jon Ossoff losing a special election in Georgia to his Republican competitor earlier this year, according to The Hill.
“So, I have to ask: Hey Tom Brokaw, are you proud of NBC News now?” he continued. “Megyn Kelly…is she proud of this type of reporting?”
Sean Hannity called out Megyn Kelly and others at NBC News for their reporting on the President. Do you agree with his accusations?
The former Fox News personality is currently having trouble on her new network, with her ratings reaching record lows due to her awkward interview style, among other criticisms the once respected journalist is dealing with.
Whether or not Kelly’s career will make a turnaround is yet to be seen. Considering that many of her fans and former collogues are losing respect for her reporting, such a prospect seem like a dim one at best.
