MeAgain Kelly: "We're In a Dangerous Phase Right Now, Where Too Many Millions of Americans Aren't Listening At All To What the Press Tells Them"
YES, SHE REALLY SAID THAT!!!
Kelly felt that power firsthand in August 2015, when she pressed the candidate about his derogatory comments about women during the first Republican primary debate. Trump responded with a Twitter attack, which was quickly followed up by a barrage of insulting tweets and even death threats from his followers.
"What people don't realize about Donald Trump — and I don't even know if Donald Trump realizes it — is that every tweet he unleashes against you ... creates such a crescendo of anger," Kelly says.
The host of The Kelly File says that although she worried for her own safety and that of her children, she and her producers were determined not to let the threats impact their coverage of Trump. Now that Trump is the president-elect, she is especially concerned about his "de-legitimization" of the media.
"I think it's dangerous," Kelly says. "People ... need good, strong, skeptical journalists to be covering whoever it is -- whether it's Barack Obama or President Donald Trump -- and we're in a dangerous phase right now, where too many millions of Americans aren't listening at all to what the press tells them."Jesus Christ, how could anyone be so myopic?
By the way, we do listen to the media. We just don't believe most of what you say. We have learned we need to do our own research.
So, in other words, this dangerous phase that MeAgain is so worried about is this: PEOPLE ARE THINKING FOR THEMSELVES.
