Did TV news hosts who support Donald Trump tip him off before interviews when they planned on asking tough questions? Of course they did, and now Fox News’ Megyn Kelly confirms these so-called “reporters” were in cahoots with the president-elect the whole time.
On Sunday’s edition of Fox News’ Media Buzz, Howard Kurtz asked Megyn Kelly point-blank that she confirm the following:
‘Certain TV hosts were in the tank for Donald Trump, you say, to the point where ‘they would arrange with Trump in advance to ask him certain critical questions or do certain hits on him so they would appear to have some credibility.’
“Yes,” the Fox News personality replied. Howard Kurtz then queried, “Are you suggesting they were play acting?” And she agreed, “Yes, it was acting.”
That’s right. So-called “reporters” staged their interviews with Donald Trump so it would look like they were asking him tough questions. In doing so, they helped lend Donald Trump and themselves a measure of credibility they don’t deserve.
Kurtz then tried to press Kelly for names, but she explained she’s not at liberty to spill the beans.
‘No, because these were off the record conversations that I was privy to that I’m not at liberty to reveal. I’m not allowed to name the names, but trust me. This did happen and its been confirmed to me by more than one television executive.’
Although Megyn Kelly herself didn’t do anything to help Donald Trump before the debate, an unnamed executive may have tipped him off.
“[T]he day before the debate, he [Trump] had called one of our Fox News executives and said he had heard my first question for him was going to be a very pointed question.”
That’s right. For all of Donald Trump’s howling about the election being rigged, these so-called journalists helped rig it in his favor.
Megyn Kelly also reveals lots of details from behind the scenes of her 2016 election coverage in her newly-published book Settle for More. These included Mein Trumpf’s repeated attempts to curry favor with her and other journalists..
‘This is actually one of the untold stories of the 2016 campaign. I was not the only journalist to whom Trump offered gifts clearly meant to shape coverage. Many reporters have told me that Trump worked hard to offer them something fabulous — from hotel rooms to rides on his 757.’
Although she declined these gifts, Megyn Kelly suggests that certain other reporters proved more receptive. Although she isn’t naming names, this may explain a lot about Sean Hannity’s fawning coverage.
