Megyn Kelly believes the media were partly responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month for “checking their objectivity” about Donald Trump

“They hated him so much, they checked their objectivity and it wasn’t just CNN. They just couldn’t check their personal feelings for him,” Kelly said in a recent interview with BBC Newsnight

The former Fox News host then said that “too many” journalists followed the “Jorge Ramos theory of reporting on Trump” by labeling Trump and his behavior as racist, sexist and misogynistic

“Before Trump was elected, he advocated that we should treat him differently, that you should outwardly describe him as a racist, sexist, misogynist and that this was important to the story”And I think too many journalists agreed to that at their own risk,” Kelly said. “One reason we saw what happened here at the Capitol two weeks ago was that there was a total lack of trust, trust has been destroyed in the media and people don’t know where to turn for real information“You don’t trust the media anymore and it’s a big problem”

“Megyn Kelly reminds you that it is logical to hold the media responsible for their prejudice against liars when the president lies a hundred times and promotes the rejection of certified democracy,” tweeted John Fugelsang, host of SiriusXM’s “Tell Me Everything “

“Megyn Kelly lost her Fox News TV show and had to set a security detail to keep her children safe after asking Donald Trump a tough question in a presidential debate. She is better than anyone should know an objective one Reporting on Trump would of course be very negative, “replied writer David Frum to Kelly’s comments
