Megyn Kelly, Bill Maher agree on 'Real Time': 'The media's so messed up right now'
In an interview on HBO's “True Time” on Friday, HBO's Bill Maher and former Fox News and NBC host Megyn Kelly confirmed that the news media is “absolutely biased. During the segment, Kelly argued that too many journalists allow their personal feelings to be expressed, while Maher asserted that the bias is motivated by “money and conflict.” “The media is so fucked up right now, it's disheartening to me. And I've long felt this way,” Kelly told Maher after getting a warm welcome from the live studio audience of Maher. “Not just since Trump. And I know the rhetoric of Trump is too strong, the 'enemy of the people' and all of that, and I know why he's saying it. There's still amazing journalists out there doing great work, but the media is totally biased.” “You worked for Fox News. I think there's another side to the story,” Maher countered. “Bill, of course. But Fox News was born and did so well, when the majority of the media were so skewed to the left,” Kelly said. Kelly has a husband and three young kids that she cited as one of the reasons she decided to leave Fox News primetime.
