Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Megyn Kelly (Host, The Megyn Kelly Show) about being cancelled, the dishonesty of the New York Times, mainstream media bias, her opinions on Joy Behar’s blackface controversy, and debunking the myths of battles over Supreme Court Justices. Megyn shares her experience of what it was like for a news anchor to become the news due to her incidents with Donald Trump, Roger Ailes, and NBC. Due to her experience she feels there is little people could do to cancel her now. Megyn also discusses the difficulty of wanting to fight racism, but also not wanting to side with the ideology of Black Lives Matter or antiracism. She blames the mainstream media for feeding into the lies that America has always been a racist nation. She points out how dishonest the New York Times has been in stealth editing the 1619 Project without clarifying to their readers that corrections have been made. Meanwhile when WSJ writers like Jason Riley try to get to the truth about police shooting data they are ignored or maligned. Megyn gives her honest feelings on the seeming hypocrisy and double standards in the mainstream media on issues like race. She points out how she was canceled and attacked for asking questions about blackface while Joy Behar who dressed as an African-American woman for Halloween is given a free pass. She was destroyed for asking if the intent mattered, meanwhile Chris Rock doesn’t fault Jimmy Fallon’s blackface impression of him because he understands the intent. Megyn gives her take on the state of media bias and journalism as well as her opinions on polarizing news anchors like Rachel Maddow and Tucker Carlson. Megyn discusses the current war brewing over the vacant supreme court justice seat left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Megyn points out that Republicans like Mitch McConnell are hypocrites for pushing a nominee now when they prevented Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. She reveals the little known history that the fighting over supreme court justices was started by the Democrats over Ronald Reagan’s nominee Robert Bork and continued with their preventing the appointment of Miguel Estrada, and the ending of the filibuster by Harry Reid. Megyn also discusses why it’s important for her to not see herself as being a victim.
