Megyn Kelly Appears on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno

Via Twitchy. It’s nice to see her get out from the behind the desk. Somewhere Piers Morgan weeps. More at Mediaite.

“I’m a straight news anchor, I’m not one of the opinion hosts at Fox,” Kelly said. “But I always laugh, because I’ll have a conservative pull me aside and say, ‘I love your conservative principles,’ and I’ll say, ‘You assume too much.’ And then the liberals will pull me aside and say, ‘I know you’re one of us,’ and I’ll say, ‘You assume too much.’ But I always tell people if they think I’m this conservative operative, ask Karl Rove if that’s true,” she said, in reference to this.

“The way we do it on the Fox News Channel is the straight news anchors give a hard time to both sides,” Kelly said. “I don’t care about pandering to the left or the right, I care about protecting my audience. My boss, Roger Ailes, pays me a decent amount of money to go out there and ask questions, because he thinks I know the questions my audience wants answers to.”

    Yea well , that’s fine, but with all the other lame stream crap, we (the Conservative Americans) need a little more support
    from the media. So that is you!

    I was recently in a doctor’s office reading a women’s magazine. It was very enlightening to see an article about the “new” news women (old mag)and what they had accomplished and were admired for. Kelly was admired for helping to sink Romney and for attacking Rush. Quite an interesting view into the mindset of the ultra-left women and, since I don’t watch Fox anymore (went too fair and balanced to the left side of the hemisphere), I get the impression that kelly really does an effective job for the left. Romney defeated and Rush re-interpreted. Impressive.
