This video of Megyn Kelly basically calling Bill O'Reilly a liar (she says "misleading" and "making facts up") is making the rounds. They're talking about the Snyder case against the WBC, whose $5 million ruling against the WBC the Supreme Court threw out yesterday, and she mopped the floor with him; he was saying that the WBC was following the Snyders home by the end of the video since he didn't know how to respond. (Although Kelly did fumble with some of the internals of the WBC's argument, but that's not important.)
What I didn't know about her was that she's a lawyer. Since every clip I ever saw with her in it has her acting like a high school mean girl who can only repeat rightwing talking points learned by rote, I assumed that she actually was just another idiot on that channel in their long line of idiots.
She appears at 3:00. Also great is Bill O'Reilly saying that there are people who "make millions" from "defaming" others (guilty conscience, Bill?) at 1:59:
It reminds me of Jon Stewart's ribbing of Fox News host Gretchen Carlson last year, accusing her of playing dumb on Fox. I don't have much trouble believing that the men of Fox - Beck, Hannity, Hume, Doocy, etc. - are actually dumb, so how creepy is it to find that two of the prominent women on that channel are smart but playing dumb to hang out with the boys? I'm sure there's a senior thesis in gender studies in there.
The Daily Show video is after the jump.
