Megyn Kelly: We don’t care what you think, Fox News’ reporters are heroes (video)

Fox News pretends to be a news organization and revels in its use of the most Orwellian of  straplines in global journalism – “Fair and Balanced”.  As if that was not outlandish enough, Megyn Kelly now wants to know when someone is going to call her and her colleagues heroes for their biased reporting of world events…

Megyn Kelly Fox News reporters are heroes

The Daily Show’sJon Stewart followed up on his segment from last week, where he took Fox “news” to task for the double standard when it comes to their screaming for accountability on Ferguson while refusing to hold themselves accountable for their Benghazi witch hunt.

Now, not only are they refusing to hold themselves accountable for their horrid job of pretending to be a “news” organization, host Megyn Kelly wants to know when someone is going to call her and some of the other hosts there “heroes” for defending Ferguson, Mo. officer Darren Wilson and for supposedly getting that story “right” (which someone should remind Jon Stewart that they didn’t).

Here’s more from Raw Story: Jon Stewart compares Fox to teenager: You ‘spend 24 hours a day jerking yourself off’:

“The great thing is, I get it now. Your network launched in 1996, you’re 18 years old,” he said. “Just like every 18-year-old, you have a massive ego and spend 24 hours a day jerking yourself off.”

Stewart showed footage of Fox host Megyn Kelly complaining that, unlike NBC’s Pete Williams, neither she nor her colleagues would be called “heroes” for defending Officer Darren Wilson’s actions in the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

“They got it right 3 times in 10 years — those are solar eclipse number, people!” Stewart said mockingly. “Which is why I think it’s recommended you only watch Fox through a tiny pinhole poked in a piece of cardboard. You can’t look directly at Fox — it would indelibly burn your soul.”

While Fox is “nothing but a rush to judgment in every situation,” Stewart said, Kelly complained about being ignored by other networks before saying that they didn’t care anyway.

While remaining unconvinced, Stewart not only brought Fox a whale-shaped cake honoring their “accomplishment.”

“You know why? We think you’re a whale of a network,” he said. “In that we’ve been chasing you our whole lives and just can’t kill you.”
