Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly has voiced her belief that the media should be blamed for her supposed role in sparking the Capitol uprising from a pro-Trump mob

In a recent interview with BBC’s Newsnight, Kelly, who also hosted NBC News from 2017-2018, railed against the mainstream media for failing to treat former President Donald Trump objectively, and concluded that his actions towards the Capitol resulted in uprising earlier this month

“One reason we saw what happened here at the Capitol two weeks ago was a complete lack of trust, a destruction of trust in the media and people not knowing where to turn to get real information”She said, ‘You don’t trust the media anymore and it’s a big problem’

“I remember all of his derogatory comments on CNN the first time he became a national figure as a presidential candidate. I’ve watched a lot of CNN and thought,” This is unfair. CNN may be a little boring, but it’s fair and factual and not prejudiced against Trump, “she explained.” Then you spent the next four years agreeing with him and proving me wrong “

“They hated him so much that they checked their objectivity and it wasn’t just CNN, they all did. They just couldn’t check their personal feelings about him”

A crowd of pro-Trump rioters stormed out on Jan. January the Capitol as Congress convened to confirm the victory of President Joe Biden’s electoral college. Five people died in the uprising

The House of Representatives has indicted Trump for instigating an uprising against the federal government just a week before he left office. Ten Republicans in the lower chamber crossed the party lines to vote with Democrats for impeachment against impeachment the Senate is due to begin in the second week of February

“We’re not going to unite,” she said on Glenn Beck’s Glenn TV. “It’s all nonsense. I like a good initiation and speech as much as anyone else, and I feel patriotic when I see them and I care for them Presidents and America for America go as you described “

“But unity is the fool’s gold,” added Kelly, “Even if you mean it in general, don’t change Washington – Washington changes it. And Joe Biden is Washington – he’s been there for 50 years”

Kelly rose through the Fox News ranks from journalist to newscaster before heading to NBC News in 2017 to take on the third hour of the network’s Today programming, NBC drew Megyn Kelly Today in October 2018 after using it seemed to defend from blackface for Halloween costumes
