Megyn Kelly’s career took a turn for the worse when Kelly began feuding with Donald Trump during the 2016 Presidential election.
Kelly has yet to recover from that fateful mistake.
But Megyn Kelly asked one question that changed her relationship with Trump forever.
Members of the fake news media lost their minds when Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential election.
So-called “journalists” decided that Trump won the election because the alleged “mainstream” media adhered to norms such as accuracy, fairness and presenting both sides of the story.
In reality, the fake news never put any of these principles into practice, but merely pretended.
The result of the fake news media’s freak out was so-called “reporters” deciding they needed to come down on the side of “the truth” and “facts” which really meant fabricating “narratives” that allowed them to advocate for the Democrat Party.
One of the biggest fictions the fake news invented in the age of Trump is the idea that Donald Trump made it acceptable for white people – specifically young white men – to openly display their racist hatred for minorities and harassing so-called “marginalized” peoples.
The biggest example of the fake news attempting to put their new commitment to narrative over truth was the smear job against the Covington Catholic students at last year’s March for Life.
At the end, 85-year-old Native American agitator Nathan Phillips stormed into a group of teenage boys from Covington Catholic and menaced teenager Nick Sandmann by banging a drum in his face.
Fake news outlets pounced on a snippet of video that showed Sandmann standing unflinchingly in front of Phillips while Sandmann’s classmates chanted and cheered.
What made this scene irresistible to the fake news was the fact that Sandmann and a number of his classmates wore the iconic red “Make America Great Again” hat.
To the members of the fake news media this was a textbook case of racist and privileged white Trump supporters contrasted against a minority acting as the picture of grace and dignity in the face of racial terrorism.
The only problem was that it was all a lie.
A longer version of the video showed that it was Phillips that instigated the confrontation by seeking out the boys and barging into their group while banging his drum.
In addition, a group of menacing black nationalists taunted the boys with racist and homophobic slurs.
Sandmann filed $800 million dollars worth of defamation lawsuits against so-called “mainstream” media outlets including a $275 million dollar lawsuit against fake news CNN.
President Trump even tweeted his support for Sandmann.
“The Washington Post ignored basic journalistic standards because it wanted to advance its well-known and easily documented biased agenda against President Donald J. Trump.” Covington student suing WAPO. Go get them Nick. Fake News!” President Trump tweeted.
CNN essentially admitted their guilt in smearing the boys by settling with Sandmann for an undisclosed amount of money.
Megyn Kelly commented that she hoped this expensive lesson would teach the media to get back into the “who, what, when, where, why and how” standard of journalism as opposed to the hot takes and analysis that makes up modern day fake news “narrative shaping” journalism.
“Now will the media be more reticent in their rush to judgment (and fake virtue signaling) against anyone perceived as non-liberal? Don’t bet on it,” Kelly wrote.
Kelly got into trouble with Donald Trump because she bought into the idea that it was the journalists’ job to spin storylines for the public and that members of the press needed to slant the facts to fit plot points in a narrative.
All Donald Trump asks is that the press treats him fairly.
If Megyn Kelly is now committed to true fairness then maybe Kelly and the President can bury the hatchet.
