KELLY’S TOUGH INTERVIEW WITH CHENEY WINS PRAISE FROM FOX NEWS EXEC

July 1, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Megyn Kelly’s combative interview with former Vice President Dick Cheney will not result in her being reprimanded by Fox News overseers; far from it. In an interview with TVNewser.com, Bill Shine, Fox News’s executive V.P. of programming said that the interview with Cheney "shows who Megyn is. … I think it also shows some of our competition and some of our skeptics what we do over here. I always say a lot of people who don’t like us don’t watch us." In her June 19 interview, Kelly prefaced a question by first reading a quote from his op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal in which he stated, "Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many." She then stated, "But time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well, sir," citing Cheney’s statements claiming that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction, that the U.S. would be welcomed by Iraqis as liberators, and that Iraqi insurgency was "in the last throes" in 2005.
