Megyn Kelly helped Michelle Malkin and David Bossie promote Citizens United’s “documentary” purporting to show that Malkin’s home state of Colorado has turned blue by some nefarious manipulations by liberal donors. It just as clearly aims to promote Colorado’s Republican candidates in the upcoming election while keeping its own donors secret.
To get a taste of Malkin’s sour grapes, here’s what she says in the trailer for the film, according to The Denver Post:
“Liberty-loving Americans, you must watch our film exposing how a small group of wealthy liberals overtook Colorado,” she said in a statement released by Citizens United. “They used every scheme possible to impose a backward agenda and they transformed the place I love into a testing ground for their liberal ideology.”
If you can stop sobbing for poor Malkin, forced to live in a state turning blue, check out this statement from the same October 15th article in the Post:
Citizens United, the conservative group that brought the landmark campaign finance case to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2010, won the right to put out the movie before the Nov. 4 election without disclosing its financial backers from a federal appeals court in Denver this week.
Got that? Citizens United doesn’t want you to know who’s bankrolling their movie. And yet Malkin and Bossie complained about secretiveness and lack of transparency on the part of the left.
And Fox News and Megyn Kelly were there to help. FoxNews.com gave the project a little extra cred by calling its online video of the segment, “’Rocky Mountain Heist’ exposes liberal takeover of Colorado.’”
Malkin applauded Bossie and Citizens United as “absolute warriors in this fight to make sure that there is sunlight… and to inform voters fully of what’s been going on here.”
Not surprisingly, Kelly did not bring up that little piece of hypocrisy over the film’s financing. Instead, she listened thoughtfully as Malkin warned, “What happened here in Colorado can happen in the rest of the country and that’s what’s so important.”
Malkin sneered and jeered that Democratic hypocrisy “reeks, it smokes, it burns!” She added, “Because you have these people who have paid lip service to transparency and to informing the voters.”
Speaking of transparency and informing voters, one of the interviewees in the film, Seth Masket, an associate professor of political science at University of Denver, revealed yesterday that he had no idea he was in it. In a column in the Washington Post, Masket wrote that his statement was edited in such a way as to wrongly suggest he believes “undocumented immigrants from Mexico are invading our country, affecting our elections and undermining our culture.”
Masket said he thought he had been interviewed for a neutral kind of documentary about Colorado politics. “I would have declined the initial interview if I’d known it would result in this kind of film. The only reason I ended up doing it was because of a lack of disclosure by the filmmaker,” he said.
Kelly didn’t bring that up, either. She listened quietly as Malkin fear mongered about voter fraud – that she’ll probably forget about if Republicans prevail in the upcoming elections. Meanwhile, her eyes bulging with animosity, Malkin said, “What do you get when you combine the Chicago way and the Colorado model and the Rocky Mountain heist? Exactly this kind of voter fraud Frankenstein, which is perfect for Hollywood and exactly what they want when elections are close.”
Instead of pointing out how rare voter fraud is, Kelly gushed over Malkin: “She is just as fiery as ever!” Kelly giggled. “She is still ready to bring it!”
