Immediately following Megyn Kelly’s boast about doing “good journalism” with her debate gotcha question to Donald Trump, she pivoted to covering Ferguson from a hostile, white perspective only.
Kelly started with “former LAPD homicide detective” and Fox News contributor Mark Fuhrman. What she didn’t tell the “we report, you decide” network’s viewers is that Fuhrman has been exposed as a dishonest racist. What a “good journalism” choice as the sole expert to discuss protests that have included violent clashes with police in Ferguson, Missouri, eh?
With hammy outrage, Kelly ranted against a roasted pig labeled “Darren Wilson” as if that were the most significant event of the protests. “When President Obama and Eric Holder’s own DOJ came out and said that cop did nothing wrong!” she declared indignantly.
Uh-oh, not such good journalism there, Megyn. The DOJ said no such thing. It found that there wasn’t the evidence to merit prosecution. As a former attorney, surely you know there’s a difference.
From Huffington Post:
The report does not attempt to establish whether Wilson was justified in killing Brown—only whether he was “objectively unreasonable” in doing so, a legal threshold established by the Supreme Court that gives great deference to police officers’ versions of events in shootings.
Nevertheless, Kelly dexclaimed, “That cop was the victim being attacked! And look at this!”
Fuhrman piled on.
FUHRMAN: It clearly shows that there is no evidence, there is no facts, there is no investigation – even when you have the Justice Department with Eric Holder wanting very much to indict Darren Wilson, and he could not, there is no investigation that is going to satisfy this group, #BlackLivesMatter.
…It doesn’t matter what you do when you’re not going to appease these groups. They are doing this strictly along racial lines.
Kelly began to scold.
KELLY: Well, not only that, but we were told a year ago in Ferguson, Missouri that the real problem was the disparity in the race situation. …So something was done about it and now they really changed the numbers in Ferguson, Missouri, Mark, to where it’s much more even. They have a lot more work to do in the police department but in terms of the city council, it’s now half black and they’ve done a lot of improvement in terms of the numbers at the city council and government level. And yet, here we are again, and once again, they’re claiming that the police are out to get these law-abiding citizens (her voice rose with sarcasm) who are just minding their own business except for when they’re firing guns into police cars!
Kelly was making it clear she did not understand what the protesters' beefs, aims or goals are. But she also indicated absolutely no interest in interviewing any or digging to find out. Instead, she hosted a white guy with a racist past who wasn’t there and shared her hostility to the protesters.
Is this what Kelly thinks is “good journalism?”

The Barbie has not been the same since she was publicly slammed by the Trumpster. Her credibility as a so-called “journalist” has been damaged.
NOTE TO MASSES
Continue to remind all the masses about her shoddy work during the debate. This broad is hoping people would forget that debate fiasco, but that won’t happen. We will continue to remind them 24/7.
Nominally perhaps, due to having stolen cigarettes — but somehow, being executed seems a tad extreme as
" . . . looking for suicide by cop."
Even if he was looking to commit suicide, there’s easier ways to do so other than by cop.
Anyway, how do you KNOW he was looking to commit suicide, unless you were aware of his mental state? Or perhaps this is yet another example of the mind-reading powers of the rightwingnut . . .
And the unarmed African American teenager he shot to death was . . . ?
